Incisional Hernia Risk Factors

A hernia occurs when one of the body’s organs protrudes through a weak spot in the surrounding tissue. There are many kinds of hernias, and some of them can be caused by surgery. An incisional hernia happens when a wound from abdominal or intestinal surgery fails to heal completely. They can be larger and more painful than most other kinds of hernia. If the hernia is small enough, a doctor may be able to repair it with sutures. However, if it is larger, they may have to use a skin graft patch, such as AlloDerm.

Unfortunately, AlloDerm has been linked to numerous unpleasant side effects. Some people who undergo a hernia repair sugery using AlloDerm will experience infections, abscesses, or hernia recurrence. If you or someone you love has had on operation using AlloDerm and are suffering from negative consequences, you could be eligible for financial compensation. Contact an experienced AlloDerm lawsuit attorney of Williams Hart at 800-761-3187 to learn more about your legal rights and options.

Individuals Who Are More Likely to Suffer Incisional Hernias

Most people who have abdominal surgery will heal without problems. However, some people are at high risk for developing hernias after surgery. This group includes:

  • People on steroid medications
  • Obese or overweight persons
  • Individuals who have had more than one operation on the same part of the body
  • People who suffer from chronic cough, or who have lung conditions
  • Smokers

Though these people may be more likely to suffer from an incisional hernia, that does not mean that others will not be left to bear a similarly frustrating and painful outcome.
