What Is A Covidien Hernia Mesh Patch?
Covidien is a health care products company that manufactures hernia mesh patches, which are plastic medical devices used to treat hernias. A hernia occurs when an organ or fatty tissues pushes through a weak point in the surrounding muscle. Hernia mesh patches are surgically installed to prevent anything from pushing through that weak point in the muscle. However, thousands of people have filed lawsuits across the country, alleging that they have suffered serious injuries due to a hernia mesh patch.

Are There Any Criteria For Filing A Covidien Hernia Mesh Lawsuit?
There are a number of things that lawyers will take into consideration when deciding the strength of your case. You may be entitled to compensation if you have had corrective surgery to repair your mesh patch. Also, if your mesh patch was implanted sometime between 2006 and May 25, 2016, a lawyer is more likely to take your case. You may also fall into the class of people entitled to a settlement if you have had any form of surgery to treat hernia recurrence or to treat a mesh related injury. If you are unsure whether or not you fall into the category of injured persons entitled to compensation, contact an experienced personal injury lawyer to help you understand your legal rights.
What Materials Are Mesh Patches Made Of?
Most of these devices are made up on synthetic materials, which typically come in knitted mesh or non-knitted sheet forms. These patches can also be absorbable or non-absorbable. An absorbable mesh is not meant for long term protection, as it is designed to fade away over time and let the body’s natural tissue to strengthen. Non-absorbable meshes are designed to be a more permanent fix. Covidien mesh patches are made of polypropylene, which is a type of plastic found in many other medical devices, such as pelvic mesh and bladder slings.
