Visilex and other hernia mesh implants have been used for decades to support soft tissue structures within the body. They were designed to be used to repair hernias, damage to the chest cavity, traumatic injuries, and surgical wounds. For all of the benefits the mesh devices were designed to provide, many still caused severe complications. Patients who have filed Visilex lawsuits often report a variety of symptoms associated with the failure of the device.

Hernia Mesh Implants

Hernia mesh implants are made of a polypropylene material and are often coated with a film or collagen-based coating that helps them adhere to the soft tissues they are meant to support. Some implants are more rigid than others, depending on where they are intended to be used within the body. Once the device has been implanted in the body and sutured in place, the film or coating will eventually be absorbed by the body.

Over time, the mesh implants can begin to degrade, increasing the risk of infection and damage to the surrounding tissues. Mesh implants have been known to become dislodged and migrate away from their original position. As they move through the soft tissues, they can also damage nearby organs. Mes implants that are more rigid in nature can actually erode the nearby tissues making it impossible for them to remain in place. This will often result in the formation of adhesions and scar tissue.

Complaints Associated With Hernia Mesh

Hernia mesh implants like Visilex, are known to cause a wide variety of symptoms including:

  • Increased risk of infections
  • Perforation of the bowel
  • Extreme pain and discomfort
  • Nerve damage
  • Scar tissues
  • Adhesions

Symptoms can range from mild to severe and their cause may not be apparent. When symptoms begin to appear, it is extremely important that you seek medical attention as soon as possible.

Complications from the use of mesh devices can cause permanent damage if steps are not taken to correct the problem. In most cases, the mesh must be removed and steps taken to support the soft tissues without the use of the mesh implant. This can mean additional surgeries, loss of wages, and an extended recovery period.

Visilex lawsuits are filed to provide you with the compensation you deserve after you have been injured by a Visilex hernia mesh implant. If you experience symptoms associated with the implant and required surgery to remove it or repair the damage it caused, contact a personal injury attorney who handles these types of cases. If you win your case, you may be able to receive compensation for both your medical expenses as well as your pain and suffering. Don’t wait! Personal injury Visilex lawsuits have deadlines that must be met. Call and schedule your appointment as soon as possible!
