Signs of Complications
Some types of hernia mesh cause complications in the patients, immediately and after some recovery time. Symptoms of hernia mesh problems can include the following:
- Bowel perforation
- Obstruction of the small or large intestines
- Fluid buildup at the surgical site
- Holes in neighboring tissues
- Mesh migration
- Intestinal fistulae
- Mesh shrinkage
- Repeated surgeries
- Systemic infections
- Dental infections
Patients who have experienced severe complications have died as a consequence. One hernia mesh product, the Kugel Mesh Hernia Patch, was recalled by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) because it had a reasonable probability of causing serious health consequences, including death. According to the FDA, the memory recoil ring attached to the mesh could break under the stress of placement, causing infections, bowel perforations, or chronic intestinal fistulae.

Several companies who manufacture hernia mesh are already involved in litigation, including the businesses that make the following products:
- Ethicon Physiomesh
- Ethicon Proceed
- Atrium C-QUR
- C.R. Bard Kugel
- C.R. Bard 3DMax
