Hernia Patch Injury Lawsuit Filed in Texas

Posted on April 22nd, 2011 No Comments

A Texas man has filed a lawsuit against the maker of a hernia mesh patch, claiming the implant caused him abdominal problems.

According to Galveston Division of the Southern District of Texas court documents, Bay City-resident Frank Larry Spalek has filed a lawsuit against Davol Inc. and distributor C.R. Bard Inc., alleging the product used to repair his hernia was defective.

According to the complaint, Spalek underwent abdominal surgery and was implanted with the device on July 14, 2004. Spalek claims he was unaware of complaints, known complications, and other risks associated with the hernia patch at the time of the surgery. Spalek alleges he experienced abdominal pain, tenderness, distention, fever and nausea as a result of the implantation. He claims he sought medical treatment, but efforts to diagnose the cause of his symptoms were unsuccessful.

Spalek was “eventually informed by his treating physicians that some, if not all, of his complaints” were due to the “patch adhering to his intestinal wall, causing him great discomfort,” the lawsuit says.
