Physiomesh Lawsuits hernia-mesh lawsuits-physiomesh-lawsuit-physiomesh-failures-recall-complications-problems-lawyerFilings of Physiomesh lawsuits continue with two new complaints alleging hernia mesh device. One hernia mesh lawsuit was filed on behalf of an Arkansas woman who suffered complications from a Physiomesh Composite mesh implant. In another lawsuit, a California woman contends the edge of her failed Physiomesh device slipped down into the hernia.

The two Physiomesh lawsuits contain allegations similar to over 80 Physiomesh Flexible Composite mesh lawsuits centralized in the U.S. District Court, Northern District of Georgia. The complaints all allege the Physiomesh hernia mesh, manufactured by Ethicon Inc., is defective and causes tissue damage, inflammation, bleeding, bowel obstruction, infection, hernia recurrence and other complications that force some patients to undergo surgery to remove the device. Ethicon, a Johnson & Johnson subsidiary, voluntarily withdrew Physiomesh Flexible Composite mesh from the global market last year after reports of a high failure rate.

The physiomesh lawsuit involving the Arkansas woman states she had a Physiomesh Composite mesh implanted in June 2011 to repair a hernia. She later suffered complications from the mesh that forced her to undergo invasive medical treatments, the complaint said. The lawsuit asserts the Physiomesh was defective, caused serious injuries, and failed to reasonably perform as intended. (Physiomesh Lawsuits No. 5:17-cv-00197, U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Arkansas)

The California woman’s complaint states that she was implanted with a Physiomesh device in October 2014 during a laparoscopic-assisted repair of a ventral hernia. After experiencing severe abdominal pain in July 2015, the woman underwent a procedure to repair a recurrent incarcerated ventral hernia, the lawsuit said. During the procedure, doctors found the edge of the Physiomesh had slipped down into the hernia, which meant the mesh failed to incorporate, according to the complaint. Another Physiomesh device was implanted during the procedure. The woman has since suffered and been treated for pain, hernia recurrence, additional adhesion and scarification which will require additional surgery to repair, the lawsuit said. (Physiomesh Lawsuits, No. 1:17-cv-00996, U.S. District Court, Eastern District of California)

The multi-layered Physiomesh Flexible Composite mesh is used in minimally invasive ventral hernia repair. Ethicon voluntarily withdrew the device in August 2016 after examining unpublished data from two large European hernia registries that showed Physiomesh had higher rates of revision surgeries and hernia recurrence after a minimally invasive ventral hernia repair compared to other meshes. Ethicon said it could not determine why the rates were higher and could not advise surgeons on how to reduce the recurrence rate.
