Overview of Hernia Mesh Complications
Hernia mesh, used in various types of hernia repairs, has been linked to numerous adverse events, raising significant health concerns. These meshes are used to repair hernias such as inguinal, femoral, incisional, ventral, umbilical, and hiatal. However, issues with the mesh, particularly those made from polypropylene, have led to complications, prompting legal actions against manufacturers.
The Problem with Polypropylene Mesh
The use of polypropylene in hernia meshes has been a major point of contention. This material has been deemed unsuitable for hernia repairs due to the risk of complications like mesh erosion, chronic pain, and infection. Despite known risks, manufacturers continued its use, leading to widespread patient harm.
Reported Injuries from Hernia Mesh
Victims of faulty hernia mesh have reported a range of injuries, including:
Infection and bleeding

Legal Action for Hernia Mesh Victims
The Levensten Law Firm is actively pursuing cases against hernia mesh manufacturers, particularly focusing on products by Ethicon and Bard. These manufacturers also produced transvaginal surgical mesh, which has similarly been implicated in severe health issues.
