Physiomesh Lawsuit Due To Failure Or Problems

The Ethicon Physiomesh™ Flexible Composite Mesh is a product used to repair hernias that is made by Johnson & Johnson’s Ethicon Division. It is a patch made of a polypropylene mesh fabric. The patch is designed to be inserted into the body through a small abdominal incision and placed behind the hernia to help cover and close the defect. Two registries show that these Ethicon Physiomesh™ products are resulting in a higher-than-expected number of problems after laparoscopic surgeries and patients are reporting severe complications.

Patients are experiencing hernia recurrence requiring additional surgery to remove the hernia mesh and repair the hernia a second time. Many individuals also report hernia surgery complications with infections, bowel injuries, and severe abdominal pain.

If you had hernia repair with a mesh patch and suffered these or other injuries, you may be able to collect compensation and damages by filing a Physiomesh™ lawsuit.  The experienced medical device attorneys at Cory Watson have recovered more than $2.7 Billion for injury victims, and we can provide you with a confidential, free case evaluation.

Johnson & Johnson’s Ethicon Division Recalls Physiomesh™ Flexible Composite Mesh

On May 25, 2016, Johnson & Johnson voluntarily recalled the Ethicon Physiomesh™ Flexible Composite Mesh after receiving reports of side effects greater than that for other products.  The company issued an urgent field safety notice after determining that the problems with its Ethicon Physiomesh™ hernia patches could be caused by a number of factors, including issues with the design of the mesh, the instructions provided to physicians when using the mesh, and patient selection.
