Acellular Dermal Matrix (ADM) Lawsuits

Dermal Matrix LawsuitsThe Food and Drug Administration (FDA) alerted patients in March 2021 that some acellular dermal matrix products pose an increased risk of complications. The possibilities of implant removal, surgery, and infection are elevated when compared to patients who did not receive ADM or received other ADM brands during their breast implant reconstruction surgery.

What is Acellular Dermal Matrix (ADM)?

ADM is a type of surgical mesh that is frequently used in breast implant reconstruction surgery. It is composed of human or animal skin. Although ADM has not been approved by the FDA for breast implant reconstruction, it is commonly used off-label in implant surgeries.
 

What is Happening with Acellular Dermal Matrix (ADM)?

Generally, patients who receive breast reconstruction surgery with implants may receive an implant alone or a breast implant and ADM. The FDA’s safety communication warned patients eligible for implant-based breast reconstruction that two specific ADMs- FlexHD and AlloMax- carry greater risks of complications than other ADMs or not using ADM at all.

The Mastectomy Reconstruction Outcomes Consortium evaluated the success of patients who had implant-based breast reconstruction. The FDA compared the rates of complications (such as the need for removal) between the group that did not receive ADMs and the group receiving one of the four ADM brands (including FlexHD, AlloMax, SurgiMend and AlloDerm). The results of the study demonstrated considerably higher rates of significant issues in patients with FlexHD and AlloMax in the two years following the surgery as compared to those patients who were implanted with SurgiMend or AlloDerm brands, or none of the brands. The FDA’s findings were corroborated with other peer-reviewed publications indicating discrepancies in safety levels between the ADM brands. The origin of the elevated risk is unknown.
