Recurring Seromas

Hernia repair surgeries can be taxing but necessary to relieve the discomfort of a painful inguinal hernia. These invasive surgeries are intended to relieve discomfort and not to cause further pain. But if a medical product used in a hernia repair surgery causes side effects that are just as frustrating as the initial condition, the effectiveness of this type of procedure may be limited. Effects like recurring seromas can be an expensive and frustrating effect of hernia repair surgeries utilizing AlloDerm.

If you or someone you love has endured a failed hernia repair surgery involving the use of AlloDerm, it is important to seek relief from these complications. Ineffective medical products may warrant legal action if they are directly linked with adverse health effects. Please contact the AlloDerm failure lawyers at Williams Hart by calling 800-761-3187 for more information concerning your legal options.


A seroma is a pocket of fluid that can develop in the body cavity after a surgical procedure. This cavity surrounding a surgical site occurs due to blood plasma seeping from the surrounding blood vessels. AlloDerm, which is meant to be a matrix for the body’s own tissues to grow around, has been reportedly linked with an increase in the likelihood that painful seromas might develop. The following symptoms are associated with post-surgical seromas:

  • Swelling
  • Hardness
  • Pain
  • Need for further medical attention

The development of a seroma can require a patient to schedule further visits to their doctor in order to have the fluids drained. This can mean further expense and pain for an AlloDerm patient.
