Strattice Mesh Complications Cause Severe Pain, Require Revision Surgery
LifeCell’s Strattice mesh products are derived from porcine skin, but those who received these mesh implants report many of the same complications as others whose repairs involved other mesh implant products. LifeCell, along with C.R. Bard, Inc., is a top manufacturer of surgical mesh products.
Severe, chronic pain near the implant site is the most common complication, but other more serious complications also occur frequently. These include:
- Abdominal infections
- Adhesion to the bowel wall
- Bowel perforation or obstruction
- Separation or disintegration of the patch
- Dislocation or migration of the mesh
- An increased risk of hernia repair failure
When complications are serious, it may be necessary to undergo additional surgical procedures to re-repair the hernia, revise the repair, or remove the patch entirely. This type of surgery is often much more complex than the initial procedure.
We Can Take Legal Action In Your Mesh Complications Case
At the Law Offices of Ogle, Elrod & Baril, PLLC our team is taking on clients from Tennessee and across the country. We are not afraid to take legal action against any mesh manufacturer to hold them liable for your damages. Medical product manufacturers must adhere to high standards and ensure their products are safe. If they fail to uphold this obligation, we can hold them responsible.
Often, litigation in this type of case is consolidated into a mass tort or multidistrict litigation. We know how to navigate these cases, including how to prepare for consolidated pretrial motions and discovery. At the same time, we can build a strong case to support negotiating an out-of-court settlement or winning a verdict.
We would love to hear from you and discuss your case if you:
- Suffer from severe pain after a Strattice mesh hernia repair
- Suffer from pain or complications after any hernia mesh repair operation
- Suffered other complications after a Strattice mesh procedure
- Required revision surgery to repair or remove the mesh
- May require revision surgery to repair or remove a mesh patch implant
If you are not sure what type of mesh your surgeon used in your repair procedure, we can request your medical records and identify the product and manufacturer. We will collect all available evidence, building a strong case against LifeCell. Let us evaluate your case for free and file a lawsuit on your behalf. Call us today at 865-546-1111 to get started.

State Law Limits How Long We Have to Act
Every state has a statute of limitations that limits how long we have to take legal action against LifeCell or other mesh manufacturers in these cases. These strict time limits can prevent us from recovering the compensation you deserve if we do not act quickly enough. For this reason, we encourage you to reach out to our team as soon as possible.
Our Strattice mesh complications lawyers can file a lawsuit and pursue compensation for your pain and suffering and other damages, but only if we know about your case.
