Infection After Mesh Implant Removal
Infection after mesh implant removal is a potential complication that can occur after surgery to remove a previously placed mesh implant used to repair a hernia or other medical condition. Common risk factors for infection after mesh implant removal include prior infection at the surgical site, diabetes, obesity, smoking, and a weakened immune system. Symptoms of infection may include fever, redness and swelling at the surgical site, and drainage or pus. Treatment may involve antibiotics and, in severe cases, additional surgical intervention to remove infected tissue. It is important to closely monitor the surgical site after mesh implant removal and report any concerning symptoms to a healthcare provider.
