Hernia Mesh Products Linked to Injuries

A variety of mesh products are used to repair hernias, but reports suggest that certain types of mesh pose an increased risk of injury to patients. These models include:

  • Atrium C-Qur™ 
    Production of Atrium’s coated C-Qur mesh was permanently halted in 2015, after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued an injunction stopping the manufacture of the product.
  • Bard Ventralex™ ST
    Ventralex ST, a plastic polyprylene hernia mesh product by C.R. Bard, Inc., has been linked to severe allergic reactions and side effects. Unlike transvaginal mesh, which is made of the same substance, there are no FDA warnings about use of Ventralex ST mesh for hernia repair.
  • Ethicon Physiomesh®
    Ethicon issued a voluntary recall of its Physiomesh hernia mesh after studies showed a higher than normal rate of hernia recurrence requiring surgery to correct.
