The Bard 3DMax Inguinal Hernia Mesh is a lightweight polypropylene mesh made by Bard and its subsidiary Davol Inc. The system has a sealed outer edge intended to hold the mesh together and prevent the rough edges of polypropylene from cutting into the patient’s insides. Despite its purpose, the 3DMax has been reported to tear easily, even upon opening the package containing the mesh. This is potentially due to the unusually curved cuplike shape of the 3DMax. Most other meshes are flat. This unique shape can fold on top of itself and even migrate throughout the patient’s body.
The Bard 3DMAX Hernia Mesh 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, testicular atrophy and extended hospital stays.

The Bard 3DMAX Inguinal Hernia Mesh has been on the market since 2007, and during that time we have seen frequent issues of mesh erosion into the tissue-covered spermatic cord in men, which itself attaches to the testes.
Men are reporting
Unfortunately, even the removal of the mesh can lead to the very same problems as non-removal, with men reporting that removal of the 3DMAX mesh can sometimes necessitate the removal of a testicle. 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.
Up to this point there have been no recalls for the Bard 3DMAX Inguinal Hernia Mesh. 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.
