Problems Associated with Composite Meshes
The problem with composite meshes is the use of different materials in the same mesh. The body reacts to foreign materials at different rates, leading to the deformation of the hernia mesh at different rates.
The mesh may no longer be secure, resulting in:
- Infection, including fistula formation
- Fluid collection
- Pain, acute and chronic, including nerve damage
- Scar formation & adhesions
- Contraction or shrinkage of the mesh, leading to hernia recurrence or organ involvement
Problems Associated with Perfix Plug Meshes
Perfix plug meshes are folded into a fluted design and used in the pelvic area. Due to its unique design and fluted shape, nerves may grow into the mesh. In men, it may entangle with the vas deferens.
How Can I Preserve Evidence?
Preservation of removed mesh is vital if you want to take legal action. Mesh is patient property, and you have the right to request the preservation of the mesh. You may also request the delivery of the mesh to you or your legal representative’s possession. However, your doctor may ask you to sign a release allowing the return of the mesh to the medical mesh manufacturer without letting you know.
