The plaintiffs argue the hernia mesh manufacturers knew or should have known about the risks of injuries, yet never warned patients and the medical professionals of the dangers. Despite the alarming rates of hernia mesh removal and revision surgeries, infections, adhesions, intestinal blockages, perforations, some of the mesh manufacturers refused to notify patients and doctors and warn of serious complications. The mesh products have not been recalled and are still on the market being implanted in patients.
