Hernia Mesh Side Effects

Whether implanted laparoscopically or through open surgery, mesh devices are commonly used to strengthen weakened or damaged tissue in hernia repair procedures. The flexible sheets, which can be synthetic or animal-tissue based, grew in popularity as a hernia repair technique throughout the 1980s, and accounted for roughly 90 percent of procedures by 2000, according to the Food and Drug Administration. The devices are believed to minimize time spent in surgery as well as recovery. If defective, however, they can cause severe complications.

Hernia mesh made of non-absorbable Marlex polypropylene may cause serious side effects, including:

  • Mesh removal and other surgeries related to the original mesh
  • Adhesions
  • Bacterial infections
  • Mesh migration
  • Obstructions
  • Pain
  • Swelling

Unfortunately, some hernia mesh complications may be so severe that they cause death.
