Inguinal hernia belongs to the group of affections that influence the anterior abdominal wall. It has several particular features and it can be treated using the Kugel mesh patch. Firstly, it is the most frequent form of hernia that can occur regardless the age and the only possibility to be cured is surgery. The evolution of the affection without any treatment can lead to severe complications that may endanger patients’ life. Bard Composix Kugel mesh lawsuits can help patients affected by hernia complications. If your hernia prosthesis is not compatible with your body, hernia-patch recall lawsuit may be necessary.
Hernias are parietal defects that appear in the area of natural apertures. Through these defects, viscera can come out and if the hernia is strangulated, they can present different degrees of affection – up to necrosis and perforation – having very severe consequences for the patient. Sometimes they are so severe that side effects cannot be avoided and then only Bard Composix Kugel mesh lawsuits can help you.
In the case of inguinal hernia, the aperture through which it is produced is the inguinal one that is the spot, through which the testicles descend from the abdomen to the scrotum. This inguinal channel is actually the spermatic tract. At this level, most of the patients can feel pain or an oedema is visible, which is painful or not. These symptoms, which are common in the case of inguinal hernia, can also be developed in other affections. Therefore, in order to have a precise diagnostic, a surgical exam is necessary. If it is too late most of the times complications lead to hernia-patch recall lawsuit.
The first attempts to cure this disease were recorded in ancient times, but the anatomic complexity of the region delayed their success until the 19th century, when an Italian surgeon, Eduardo Bassini described and practiced the procedure that nowadays bears his name. This technique, revolutionary for that time, has its origins in the local anatomy principles and some observations related to the original technique are valid nowadays too. Unfortunately, then people could not benefit from hernia-patch recall lawsuit.
Even if this procedure is still used, the progresses recorded during the last century in the comprehension of the local anatomy and physiology, have led to new techniques. We can mention Schouldice’s technique whose main purpose is to reduce recurrence. Nowadays, any hernia recurrence can be associated with Bard Composix Kugel mesh lawsuits.
All these techniques have improved the results obtained through Bassini procedure, but the results have been, nevertheless, unsatisfactory. The reason why these techniques are insufficient is the misunderstanding of the fact that the defect, which leads to hernia, is structural. Most of the times, it is based on a genetic inheritance background. It is not possible to repair a defect in an area that is intensely stressed, using low quality structures.
The first scientist who apparently understood this aspect was the American surgeon, Lichtenstein. He proved that the tension created at the level of the suture, the area that is stitched over the wall defect, is the main cause of the recurrence. Thus he founded the modern treatment, tension free, in the inguinal hernia. On this purpose, he uses a synthetic prosthesis, a mesh, applied over the defect and which, stitched at the edges of the defect, takes over the existent tension, leading to a reliable, long-lasting cure. In this case, local pain caused by tension is eliminated. However, any mistake can result in Bard Composix Kugel mesh lawsuits. Hernia patch -recall lawsuit, nonetheless can solve a legal problem, not a health one, therefore prevention is more recommended than any cure.
