Between 2003 and 2015, 3M manufactured the Dual-Ended Combat Arms™ Earplugs that were distributed to thousands of military personnel. In a recent settlement agreement with the United States Department of Justice, 3M agreed to pay $9.1 million to resolve allegations that they knowingly sold defective earplugs to the U.S. military.

About the case

Hernia repairs are one of the most common surgical procedures performed today, with over one million performed in the U.S. each year alone. The use of mesh in hernia repairs has been on the rise since the 1980s, and over 80% of hernia repairs performed in the U.S. today use mesh products.

Several mesh devices, though, have been the subject of various FDA recalls and ongoing litigation. Lawsuits against several mesh manufacturers, including Bard Davol, Ethicon, and Atrium, allege the polypropylene mesh devices were defectively designed and manufactured and resulted in painful and debilitating complications. C.R. Bard is facing more than 9,000 lawsuits in the Southern District of Ohio and the first trial has been set for April 19, 2021.

What is hernia mesh?

Hernia mesh is a medical device used in hernia repair procedures to help provide support to the weakened or damaged tissue. There are more than 70 types of meshes available on the market today, constructed from various synthetic materials and animal tissue. Polypropylene mesh, touted as both durable and flexible, is the most common type of synthetic hernia mesh.

During hernia repair surgery, the mesh is placed behind the hernia through a small incision. It is then held open by a “memory recoil ring” that first allows it to be folded for insertion, and then causes it to spring open and lay flat once it is in place. Once implanted in the body, hernia meshes have been linked to serious, often life threatening complications. The recoil ring that opens the patch has been found to break, leading to bowel perforations and to abnormal passageways between the intestines and other organs.

According to the FDA, some of the most commonly reported adverse events are pain, infection, blockage of the large or small intestine, bleeding, fluid build-up, and hernia reoccurrence.
