Study shows hernia complications most likely to occur 30 days after surgery

pelvic mesh inquiry vaginal mesh implants concerns

In some cases, the chance of hernia complications occurring post-op is up to 30%. A U.S. study reportedly indicates that hernia complications are most likely to occur at least 30 days after surgery.

The study looked into all incisional hernia repair hospital admissions between 2010 and 2014 and found that, out of almost 16,000 patients, almost 20% were readmitted within one year of their surgery, and 60% of were readmitted after 30 days. Of the 16,000 patients, 88% were reportedly treated using hernia mesh, and one-third had to undergo further major surgery.

This extremely high percentage of both short-term and long-term readmissions could indicate how dangerous the use of hernia mesh can be. The complications arising from hernia mesh over 30 days after surgery can be incredibly serious. In the UK, the MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency) has been criticised for failing to review the use after patients came forward with complications. As a law firm, we represent people claiming compensation for hernia mesh problems.

The vaginal mesh scandal has hit the news again this week as we continue to represent victims claiming compensation for pelvic mesh procedures that have gone wrong.

The invasive surgical procedure was under a widespread pause last year following further reviews into the safety and efficacy of the devices. In April this year, revised guidelines were released by NICE (The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence), which many have argued do not go far enough.

We know from years of experience and from the clients that we help that the impact of mesh gone wrong can be absolutely awful.
