The continued dangers of vaginal and hernia plastic medical mesh implants remain ongoing, yet both are still being used for procedures here in the UK and in other parts of the world.
Despite the known dangers, the thousands of people harmed by mesh devices, and the permanence that some can suffer from, patients are still undergoing these treatments.
Many do not know the severity of the consequences and complications that can arise. Some patients have fallen victim to poor treatment or surgery. Some have received inadequate aftercare and revision treatments. There are plenty of ways people can suffer, and we want to help in the only way that we can – with specialist legal representation.
Over the past few years, hernia mesh implants have been at the centre of growing controversy, with many patients telling of the painful and debilitating complications caused by the devices. The scandal is wide-reaching, as tens of thousands of people who have undergone hernia mesh surgery could be confronted with complications. We have been pursuing a hernia mesh legal case for many people over the last few years, and we want to remind those affected that they may still have a chance to claim compensation.
Surgical mesh is one of the most common treatments for hernias, with surgeons using the mesh to hold in displaced tissue. The use of hernia mesh has long been approved by the MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency), but it has since been suggested that the clinical reviews of the product’s safety are lacking.
We believe it is vital to hold the responsible parties accountable for any harm they may have caused patients, and one way to do this is to bring medical negligence claims. If it is established that your doctor or a healthcare professional breached their duty of care through you being recommending hernia mesh as a treatment, you may be able to recover compensation for any harm caused.
In recent years, concerns about the safety of pelvic mesh implants have been raised after many women began coming forward to report the complications they had suffered. While many women have already come to us to make claims, we believe that there are still many more pelvic mesh compensation claims to be brought on the basis of medical negligence.
Used to treat pelvic organ prolapse and urinary incontinence, the mesh implants had long been perceived as an essential form of treatment, but now guidelines have been adjusted to ensure they are only used in a minority of cases. Nevertheless, it is unforgivable that pelvic mesh implants were, and to some extent still are, regarded as safe, given that they have caused irreversible damage to the health and well-being of many patients.
We believe these injustices must be accounted for, which is why we encourage anyone who has suffered the effects of mesh implants to come forward for advice on their potential claim.
In recent years, concerns have been growing surrounding the use of hernia mesh. A worrying number of patients have experienced complications following the implantation of hernia mesh, such that they are suffering from pain and injuries that are often irreversible. However, what many patients may not know is that they may be eligible to make a hernia mesh claim to recover compensation for any harm done to them.
Although there has previously been a pause on the use of pelvic surgical mesh, and the treatment is used less widely than it has been in past, there has not yet been a similar kind of recall for hernia mesh in the UK. Yet, when the worst does occur, the impact on the patient can be devastating.
Our specialist medical negligence lawyers at The Injury Lawyers are here to help those affected by hernia mesh claim compensation to recover damages for their difficulties.
While hernia mesh is still widely regarded as a necessary medical treatment, a large number of patients have been subject to hernia mesh readmissions. Many have reported complications, including chronic pain, reduced mobility, organ perforation, and infections.
Indeed, with international guidelines suggesting that 1 in 10 patients will experience chronic pain following the treatment, it is unsurprising that there are many hernia mesh readmissions, in which patients require further reparative treatment or even a removal of the implant.
At The Injury Lawyers, we have been helping people with the ongoing controversy surrounding hernia mesh and vaginal mesh treatments for a long time. In our view, we find it incredibly concerning that the government and the NHS have yet to take more significant action regarding the use of mesh implants. While the treatments may be successful for many patients, this does not allay the suffering of those whose lives are turned upside down by the use of surgical mesh. We are here to support anyone who has experienced the adverse consequences of hernia mesh implants, as you may be entitled to claim compensation.
