Ethicon Physiomesh

Ethicon Physiomesh LawsuitWhat is Physiomesh?

Ethicon’s Physiomesh is a flexible composite mesh patch that was used in operations to repair hernias. The product was voluntarily recalled in 2016 when independent studies found high rates of complications involving Physiomesh.

Ethicon, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, has produced several controversial products that are made from polypropylene, including Physiomesh. Many of these products, like transvaginal mesh and bladder slings, have been subjected to numerous lawsuits in the past, but Ethicon continued to produce and market surgical mesh made from the same materials.

What Are The Risks With Hernia Mesh?

Made of plastic filaments, the light-weight Physiomesh was coated with chemicals that prevented the material from working properly. Since it was introduced to the market, Ethicon Physiomesh been linked to several adverse effects, including:

  • Infections
  • Allergic reactions
  • Abdominal Pain
  • Mesh fractures and migration
  • Inflammation
  • And More

Patients who underwent surgery to repair a hernia may have suffered one or more of these side-effects as the result of poorly designed mesh. In many of these cases, patients required additional surgeries, and they may have suffered permanent injuries.
