Pigskin and hernia repair surgery

Posted on February 21st, 2012 No Comments

New research has shown that large hernias in individuals may best be repaired with pig tissue mesh instead of the common surgical mesh that is used in most hernia repair surgeries.

The reports show that this type of mesh, called pigskin by doctors, has been used in repair surgeries for more than 20 years, and has shown less infection in patients than surgical mesh. The downside to using pigskin is it’s cost, it costs approximately 10 times more to use than synthetic mesh products.

Doctors believe that although pigskin costs more, it is worth more in the long run. If synthetic mesh becomes infected in an individual who underwent a complex hernia repair surgery, it cannot be used again. Additional surgeries for complex hernias are usually not performed if the surgical mesh caused severe complications, and therefore patients have to suffer serious side effects.

AlloDerm is a surgical mesh product that is commonly used in hernia repair surgeries. Please contact the AlloDerm lawsuit lawyers of Williams Kherkher at 800-761-3187 if you or someone you know has developed serious side effects after AlloDerm was used in your hernia repair surgery.
