The FDA and Surgical Hernia Mesh
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued warnings about hernia mesh products. They also warn against complications related to the medical devices. Hernia mesh implant patients have also filed adverse events reports. These reports give even more details about the side effects and complications of hernia mesh products. This includes Covidien’s Parietex hernia mesh.
The FDA claims that many of the adverse event reports involved recalled hernia mesh products. However, the federal agency continues to receive adverse event reports for products that are still on the market.
One reported incident in May 2017 over a Parietex hernia mesh stated that the mesh failed. The patient underwent surgery to remove the device. The mesh had migrated and was not found even after two surgeries. A CAT scan showed the mesh was at the bottom of the patient’s stomach, according to the report.
Hernia Mesh Complications
Parietex hernia mesh products reportedly cause the same problems as other hernia mesh products.
According to the FDA, hernia mesh products can cause or exacerbate complications such as:
- Abdominal pain
- Bowel obstruction
- Chronic pain
- Fistula formation
- Hernia recurrence
- Mesh adhering to internal organs
- Mesh infection
- Mesh migrating to other parts of the body
- Mesh shrinkage
- Seroma (fluid buildup at the surgery site)
