Prolene Hernia Mesh System Lawsuit
Hernia Mesh Attorneys in New York and New Jersey and Nationally
The Prolene Hernia System is a polypropylene mesh made by Johnson & Johnson’s subsidiary, Ethicon. The system is composed of two separate layers of mesh connected by a mesh tube, and it is usually used for inguinal hernias, or hernias of the groin. When mesh fails and requires further surgery, a patient may experience significant pain, systemic infection, scarring, mesh erosion, urinary issues, nerve entrapment and extended hospital stays.
Our firm has already filed a number of hernia mesh lawsuits throughout the country. We have extensive hernia, pelvic organ prolapse, and stress urinary incontinence mesh litigation and settlement experience against a number of medical device manufacturers. If you or someone you know has suffered due to Prolene Hernia System, the experienced medical device attorneys at Rheingold Guiffra Ruffo & Plotkin LLP are here to protect your rights.

Problems Associated with the Prolene Hernia System
The Prolene Hernia System has been on the market since 2000. It has a similar design to hernia mesh plugs, such as the Perfix plug. Complications associated with this mesh include sexual dysfunction, removal of a testicle, revision surgery, hernia repair surgery and severe pain. Our mass tort attorneys have years of experience in handling medical device lawsuits, including mesh lawsuits. We have handled cases in New York, New Jersey, and nationwide.
Preserving removed mesh is a crucial step if you are considering litigation, especially because mesh is your property as a patient. Therefore, you may request preservation or delivery of your mesh, to either you or your legal representative. Make sure you don’t sign a medical release with your doctor, as it may state your doctor has the right to return the mesh to the manufacturer--without notifying you.
How Do I Know What Type of Mesh I Have?
Up to this point there have been no recalls for the Prolene Hernia Mesh System. If you had hernia mesh implanted between 2000 and 2016, contact your surgeon to see which type it is. If you have implanted mesh which is already removed due to failure, loosening or hernia recurrence, you can contact your doctor or we can obtain medical records for you in order to determine what type of mesh it is.
