mesh patches are widely used in the United States to treat conditions that are associated with Hernia. However there are many cases and reports that reveal that the widely known implant is also associated with side-effects and complications. Reports have also shown a certain rate of failure for these devices. Some of the side effects that the implant has been reported with are:

  • Constipation
  • Bowel Obstruction
  • Fistula
  • Abdominal pain with persistent fever
  • Persistent stomach pain
  • Tenderness at the implant site

Asides these side effects, the implant can be problematic when some major component of the implant like metal ring that is present around the patch breaks and leads to signs like patch shriveling, buckled mesh, edges curling upwards etc. Cases were also reported when the metal ring gets rolled up, crumpled, wrinkled and folded.
