Symptoms and Treatment of a Hernia Mesh Repair

Dr. Chanu Dasari has performed thousands of hernia mesh repair procedures and is one of the highest-rated surgeons in the United States.

Think you are in need of a hernia mesh repair?

Traditional hernias were repaired with suture based techniques for many years. These include:

In the past several decades medical device companies have sponsored numerous clinical trials touting the safety and efficacy of prosthetic hernia mesh implants in the human body. For hernia repairs domestically, most involve the use of artificial materials. Unfortunately, many of these widely used implantable devices have also been recalled from the market. The recalled devices went through the rigorous “FDA regulatory approval” process initially, but later demonstrated a high number of hernia mesh complications which negatively impacted patients. While complications do not occur in every case, it is important to have a frank discussion regarding the risks, benefits, and alternatives to mesh implantation.

Top 6 hernia mesh complications

  • Chronic pain – may be related to hernia mesh position, irritation of a nerve or muscle, scar tissues, or even from the tacking device used to secure the mesh. Both the technique used, the material of the mesh, and the attachment method play a role in this issue. In my practice, I have seen old mesh curl up into a wad and place pressure on a nerve. I have seen mesh poke out through the skin due to improper placement. I have also seen low-grade infections and inflammation granulomas that were not seen on radiology X-ray, CT, or MRI imaging studies. In all of these cases, a hernia mesh repair may be needed.
  • Adhesions, Scar tissue – With all types of surgery, scar tissue will naturally form. However, if this scar tissue happens to attach to internal organs and nerves, it can cause discomfort, disability, and pain. Sometimes to fix this problem, the scar tissue or adhesions need to be surgically removed during a hernia mesh procedure.
  • Intermittent intestinal obstructions – Some people have ongoing, severe digestion problems following hernia repair. Some of these issues are diagnosed as bowel obstructions and require emergent surgery. If there is sufficient scar tissue that interferes with the normal intestinal movement, some people may have intermittent partial obstructions, where only some food passes. Other people develop complete obstructions in which nothing passes. Total obstructions are considered surgical emergencies and a hernia mesh repair will need to be addressed in a hospital setting.
  • Organ erosion – Hernia mesh has the potential to erode into internal organs, especially if there is increased pressure or inflammation in the area. I have seen implanted mesh erode holes into the bowel, bladder, and vagina.
  • Toxicity, Inflammation, and Autoimmune Disease
  • Infection

Hernia Mesh Recall List

The hernia mesh recall list was updated in April 2020. This list is not an all-inclusive list. Please visit FDA.gov for the most complete listing. You may also search this database.

It is important to note that this list does not include fixation tools and devices used to secure the surgical mesh to the body. The use of defective fixation tools and devices in surgery adds further complexity to certain cases. If you are experiencing mesh-related complications, please request an evaluation from Dr. Dasari.

If you are looking for hernia repair, be sure to ask about a surgeon’s level of comfort and experience with traditional hernia mesh and non-mesh repairs. Also, inquire about their expertise in addressing mesh-related complications.
