What is the Issue With Hernia Mesh?

Hernia mesh is a product used by surgeons who are repairing abdominal hernia’s which are very common surgeries within the USA. The hernia mesh has been used as an implant for years with patients during this surgical repair. Most of the meshes over the years have been made with polypropylene which is no longer the case due to the damage and side effects it was causing people after their surgeries. So, companies started coating the polypropylene under the belief it would not cause harm or damage to the patients it was being implanted inside. This has not been the case. Patients are still having problems and these problems are why lawsuits have been filed against the manufacturers listed above.
