Do I Have a Physiomesh Lawsuit?

The Cochran Firm has represented clients who have been injured as a result of defective medical devices. Currently, the attorneys with The Firm are reviewing Physiomesh injury cases in all states.

Physiomesh Market Withdrawal

Ethicon (part of Johnson & Johnson) has recalled the Physiomesh Composite Mesh hernia patch. Two studies in Germany and Denmark found higher revision rates after minimally invasive hernia repair procedures using the Physiomesh Flexible Composite Mesh product.

On May 25, 2016, Ethicon issued an Urgent Field Safety Notice announcing a voluntary global market recall of Physiomesh. The company pulled the flexible composite mesh product used for laparoscopic hernia repairs and other fascial issues requiring a reinforcing or bridging material.

Complications of Hernia Mesh

Ethicon announced the Physiomesh withdrawal based on an analysis of two large studies in Germany and Denmark. The data showed higher failure rates and revision surgeries associated with Ethicon Physiomesh Composite Mesh used for minimally invasive ventral hernia repairs.

Possible Complications From Ethicon Physiomesh Flexible Composite Mesh used in Hernia Repairs:

  • Chronic or Intermittent Pain
  • Need for Surgical Revision
  • Infection
  • Resulting Damage to Nearby Organs
  • Mesh shrinkage
  • Hernia recurrence
  • Tissue Adhesion
  • Intestinal blockage
  • Mesh migration or movement
