Necrotizing Fasciitis

AlloDerm is a mesh patch that is occasionally used in hernia repair procedures. While AlloDerm hernia patches are often successful in treatment, they have a significantly high risk of complication, including infection. One of the most common forms of infection resulting from use of the AlloDerm hernia patch involves the staphylococcal bacteria. This can lead to serious conditions, including necrotizing fasciitis, or flesh-eating disease as it is more commonly known.

If you or someone you know has experienced complications following a procedure involving the AlloDerm hernia patch, you may be entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering. Contact the AlloDerm lawsuit attorneys of Williams Hart today at 800-761-3187 to discuss your case with an experienced legal professional.

Symptoms of Necrotizing Fasciitis

Necrotizing fasciitis affects the skin’s deepest layers. As the infection spreads, it releases toxins which destroy surrounding tissue, leading to its popular conception as a flesh-eating disease. Signs and symptoms of this infection include:

  • Intense pain
  • Swollen skin or tissue
  • Diarrhea
  • Vomiting
  • Inflammation of the skin
  • Rapidly increasing skin temperature
  • Change in skin color
  • Skin blistering

Necrotizing fasciitis is an extremely serious condition that often leads to death if not treated quickly.
