Hernia Mesh Product Recalls

Hernia Mesh Lawsuit in Canada – Hernia Mesh Product Recalls

Some types of hernia mesh products, particularly types of synthetic mesh, have been subject to recalls or are currently under review.

Hernia Mesh Product Recalls

Hernia mesh products can be made from biological or synthetic materials. Biological hernia mesh is derived from animal tissue (usually cow or pig skin or intestine) that is disinfected before it is implanted. Fully absorbable, this mesh eventually degrades in the body and is expected to be replaced by new human tissue growth to strengthen the area bridged or patched.

Synthetic Hernia Mesh Products

Synthetic hernia mesh products can be made from both absorbable and/or non-absorbable materials. Non-absorbable mesh products, including those made from polypropylene plastics, are considered permanent implants that are designed to provide permanent reinforcement to tissue walls that may not otherwise regenerate on their own.
