Risks & Side Effects

FIND OUT IF YOU QUALIFY TO GET COMPENSATION

Although there really isn't anything available that will provide conclusive data showing how one patient to the next will react in and after surgery. What is known is that before any medical product receives its approval for distribution, it must pass the obvious minimum safety requirements. However, some products that make their way to the surgeons hands have problems that are unknown until they appear after surgery. Even if a defective device was never used, surgery of any kind can make your body vulnerable to infection. Chronic pain could also result from errors of the doctors made during the surgery.

What Are the Most Serious Complications?

The most serious adverse events following surgery can be life-threatening at worst and severely painful at the very least. They almost certainly require an additional surgery or more to correct. Here are some of those complications.

ADHESION

Independent studies have shown that up to 21 percent of patients having this procedure were required to have additional surgery to remove part of their bowel because the intestines adhered to the device implant. The FDA describes adhesion as “scar-like tissue that sticks tissues together.”

BOWEL OBSTRUCTION

Symptoms include nausea, vomiting and the inability to pass gas or stool. This is a potentially dangerous condition that needs immediate treatment. Left untreated, the obstruction can cut off blood flow, causing a portion of the intestine to die.

MIGRATION

The most serious danger of migration involves the mesh coming into contact with the intestines or gallbladder. If the dislocated mesh makes contact with internal organs, it may result in “ingrowth,” literally growing into the organ.
