ALLODERM MESH RECALL AND LAWSUITS
AlloDerm Hernia Suit
Marc J. Bern & Partners and its professional team are investigating potential AlloDerm lawsuits for individuals throughout the United States for individuals who have experienced problems after use of the product during hernia repair.
AlloDerm is a biologic product made from donated human tissue, which was introduced by LifeCell in 1992 for use with burn patients, during dental surgery and for plastic or reconstructive surgery.
Around 2000, LifeCell began promoting Alloderm for hernia repair and abdominal reconstruction surgery, which has been linked to a number of serious problems where the mesh may begin to stretch, expand, thin out or sag once implanted.
LifeCell promoted AlloDerm hernia mesh without adequately testing the product, providing instructions on the proper use or warning consumers and the medical community about the risk of AlloDerm patch complications with hernia repair.
Although the manufacturer knew that the AlloDerm graft should be “pre-stretched” if it was going to be used during a hernia repair, they failed to adequately share this information with surgeons.
Use of the AlloDerm mesh for hernia surgery was never adequately studied, yet LifeCell promoted the product as safe and effective. This resulted in wide use of the product over other hernia repair products.
AlloDerm lawsuits allege that LifeCell knew or should have known that the patch was not suitable for hernia surgery as marketed, and that it did not have proper warnings and instructions that may have reduced the risk of complications.
A “silent” AlloDerm recall has now been issued for use of the product during hernia surgery or abdominal repair, as LifeCell has stopped advertising the AlloDerm graft for that purpose.
ALLODERM CLASS ACTION LAWYERS
Marc J. Bern & Partners is reviewing potential claims for individuals throughout the United States who have experienced problems after receiving the mesh patch during hernia surgery or abdominal repair. Individual injury claims, as well as potential Alloderm mesh class action lawsuits are being considered.
As a result of LifeCell’s decision to place profits before consumer safety, thousands of people were needlessly exposed to a risk of painful and debilitating injury following hernia repair, which may permanently impact their quality of life.
Free consultations and claim evaluations are available to help determine if you, a friend or family member may be eligible to participate in the AlloDerm lawsuit. All claims are pursued under a contingency fee agreement, which means that there are no out-of-pocket costs to pursue a lawsuit.
