This case involves a middle-aged female in Virginia who underwent a surgical procedure to repair a recurrent hernia with a Composix synthetic mesh patch. The surgery proceeded without incident, however several weeks later the patient presented to the ER with severe cramping and vomiting. A few weeks after this incident, the patient presented to the hospital with her hernia now increased in size. The hernia was again repaired using a synthetic hernia mesh product. The patient’s condition continued to deteriorate over the coming weeks, and she eventually began to show signs of early-stage sepsis. After undergoing exploratory surgery, the patient was diagnosed with a small bowel obstruction that required additional surgery to remediate. As a result, the patient was left with permanent injuries.
