In March, several plaintiffs involved in Physiomesh lawsuits filed a motion asking the JPML to transfer 18 hernia mesh complaints to the Middle District of Florida for coordinated pretrial proceedings. The plaintiffs said the Physiomesh complaints have common allegations and they expect filings of “hundreds of additional cases” in the near future. In Ethicon’s response to the plaintiffs transfer motion, the company said consolidation is not appropriate because there are more individual issues involved than common issues. A total of 37 Physiomesh lawsuits had been filed by the time Ethicon responded to the plaintiffs’ request in April.

Ethicon’s Physiomesh Flexible Composite Mesh received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2010. The large pore, multi-layered device is used in minimally invasive ventral hernia repair. Ethicon voluntarily withdrew Physiomesh after reviewing unpublished data from two large European hernia registries. The data showed Physiomesh had higher rates of revision surgeries and hernia recurrence after a minimally invasive ventral hernia repair compared to other meshes. Since Ethicon could not instruct surgeons on what might lead to a reduction in the recurrence rate, the company said it would withdraw the device from the world market.

The first trial for a Physiomesh lawsuit has been scheduled for January 22, 2018 in the District of Southern Illinois, according to court records. The lawsuit involves an Illinois man who was implanted with the Physiomesh Flexible Composite Mesh in 2013. Two years later, the man was hospitalized due to an infection around the mesh which caused two abdominal abscesses and an intestinal fistula, the complaint said. The man underwent surgery to debride the abscesses. The Physiomesh complaint alleges the hernia mesh was defective d unreasonably dangerous and Ethicon failed to warn the medical community about the risks associated with its device.
