Hernia mesh is a surgical implant, often made of a synthetic plastic called polypropylene, that reinforces torn or damaged tissue around hernias and strengthens it as it heals. Hernia mesh is used in about 90% of hernia repair surgeries in the United States. Hernia mesh products include patches that are designed to go over or under the damaged tissue, plugs that fit inside the hole in the tissue, and sheets that can be custom cut and fitted for the patient's specific hernia. While hernia mesh can prevent a hernia from recurring, it can also cause serious complications. The complications include, but are not limited to: infection, bowel obstruction, severe pain, mesh migration, organ perforation, and hernia recurrence.
