Reports of Recurrence

Developing a hernia is painful, and it is certainly something that a person would prefer not to experience twice. Hernia recurrence can be a frustrating, expensive, and disheartening development for any hernia patient. Not only must a patient contend again with pain and discomfort, but they must also decide how they will pursue treatment for a second time, a process made more difficult in light of the previous failure. Hernia recurrence has been linked, in some cases, to the use of AlloDerm during an initial hernia procedure.

If you have suffered from a hernia and your repair involving AlloDerm has required further medical attention, you may be entitled to seek financial compensation for additional medical bills and other damages. Contact the AlloDerm lawyers at Williams Hart by calling 800-761-3187 for more information concerning your legal options.

Bridging Repairs

A study released from the Department of Surgery at the University Hospital of Cleveland Case School of Medicine by Judy Jin, MD, suggested that AlloDerm failure was the cause of hernia recurrence in 80% of the patients that had used the product for a bridging repair. This technique, which is used for more complex hernias, exposed an inability of AlloDerm to handle this type of procedure. Hernia recurrence can result in the following adverse effects:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Swelling
  • Inflammation
  • Heightened risk of infection
  • Requiring further surgical treatment
