Complications

FIND OUT IF YOU QUALIFY TO GET COMPENSATION

From 2008 to 2010, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) received nearly 3,000 reports of problems related to mesh devices. The FDA has indicated that these health complications are not connected to one brand or model but the overall product. Some of the problematic materials used are:

  • Absorbable synthetics
  • Animal tissues
  • Non-absorbable polyester or polypropylene

  • Combinations of these materials are also used in the mesh devices, which have sometimes required three or more revision surgeries. Sometimes the complications may not be fixed. In the case of erosion, removal of the device may not be possible.
