What is a mesh removal procedure?
Most hernias are treated and prevented with the help of a procedure known as hernia repair surgery, which uses a synthetic surgical mesh material to repair your damaged abdominal wall. While mesh implants are typically meant to be permanent, certain complications and side effects may occur, requiring removal of the mesh implant from your abdominal wall.
Why is mesh removal needed?
Hernia mesh removal may be required if your mesh implant is causing complications, discomfort, or other side effects. Complications may include:
- Bodily rejection of the mesh implant
- Infection within the abdominal cavity
- Erosion of mesh implant into organs
- Displacement of the mesh implant
- Adhesion of the mesh implant to internal organs
- Blockage of the intestines
- Entrapment of nerves
- Additional occurrence of hernias
If you are experiencing symptoms of medical complications due to your mesh implant, mesh removal may be required. Symptoms of mesh implant complications may include the following:
- Inflammation of the affected areas
- Redness at the site of surgery
- Difficulty urinating
- Severe swelling or bruising at the site of surgery
- Blood loss or leakage at the site of surgery
What does the mesh removal procedure involve?
The mesh removal procedure involves the surgical removal of the mesh implant from your abdominal wall. During the procedure, healthy tissue may also be carefully removed, as well as any parts of your abdominal organs that the mesh implant may have become stuck to.
What are the benefits of the mesh removal procedure?
The mesh removal procedure is beneficial because it can help alleviate any resulting complications or side effects from the initial hernia repair procedure. Mesh removal may also come with additional risks. Speak with your doctor to learn more about the risks and benefits of mesh removal and to determine if mesh removal is right for you.
