Houston, TX (PRWEB) May 06, 2011
Complications and failures of the skin graft matrix AlloDerm® used in hernia repair are causing more and more patients to examine their options for legal recourse related to the side effects and suffering they have experienced. Serious complications include infections, abscesses, swelling,hernia recurrence, and even rejection of the graft.
“It is unfortunate that AlloDerm is causing these painful and dangerous adverse side effects,” said Attorney Nick Johnson, founder of Johnson Law Group. “Alloderm’s manufacturer, LifeCell, and the doctors who use it to treat patients, should be accountable when it fails.”
A recent study of patients who had AlloDerm used to repair their hernias found that “…20 percent suffered one or more complications.”AlloDerm was developed by the company LifeCell in the 1990s to as a skin graft used to treat patients with severe burns. It is now commonly used during breast and gum surgery, as well as at the site of hernias, with the hope that new tissue will grow and attach to it.
If AlloDerm caused you to suffer complications or adverse side effects after hernia or other surgery, restitution may be due to you for the pain and problems you went through.
