Staphylococcal Infection

AlloDerm hernia patches, which are mesh patches made from human skin tissue, have been successfully used in the surgical treatment of hernias. Unfortunately, these products have a high complication rate. One of the most common complications arising from AlloDerm hernia patches is staphylococcal infection. Staphylococcus is a form of bacteria that can cause a wide range of infections, some of which can pose a serious risk to the health of an affected individual.

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

Types of Staphylococcal Infection

The majority of infections resulting from hernia repair are caused by the staphylococcus bacteria. Complications from staphylococcal infection may include:

  • Osteomyelitis, or infection of the bones or bone marrow
  • Septic arthritis, or the infection of a joint by bacteria which causes arthritis
  • Acute infective endocarditis, or inflammation of tissue in the heart
  • Sepsis
  • Necrotizing pneumonia

Many of these complications, if left untreated, can cause significant damage to a patient’s health and in some instances, may prove fatal.
