Which Surgical Mesh Is Not Safe?

Using surgical mesh for hernia repairs has been possible for decades, but with mixed results due to rejection and infection.

With the advent of new materials in the 1980s, mesh-based repairs were considered a medical breakthrough that dramatically reduced hernia recurrence with minimal risks. In the 2000s, more than 90 percent of all groin hernia repairs relied on surgical mesh implants.

Unfortunately, many complications related to hernia repair with surgical mesh implants that have been reported to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration have been associated with recalled mesh products no longer on the market. If you had a hernia repair using a surgical mesh implant, it is important for you to know whether your hernia mesh was recalled by the FDA.
