Physiomesh Flexible Composite Hernia Mesh
What Is the Hernia Physiomesh?
Physiomesh Flexible Composite is a polypropylene mesh used to surgically repair hernias. It is designed by Ethicon, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, which has been hit with thousands of product liability lawsuits in recent years. Physiomesh has been associated with many recurring hernias, inflammatory physical reactions, and painful medical complications among recipients, often leading to a need for additional medical care and surgical intervention.
Why Is the Hernia Physiomesh Harmful to Patients?
Physiomesh is designed to be partially absorbed into the body, but there have been many reported cases in which the mesh failed to incorporate into the surrounding tissues, causing painful complications such as:
- Hernia recurrence
- Folding or crumpling of mesh
- Inflammatory responses
- Adhesion to organs
Many patients have also reported pain ranging from uncomfortable to unbearable surrounding the site of the Physiomesh implant.
In May 2016, Ethicon took Physiomesh off the market worldwide and issued an urgent safety notice, explaining that Physiomesh and other products containing Physiomesh produced higher-than-normal rates of complications, recurring hernias, and reoperation when the product was used for laparoscopic ventral hernia repair.
The product has since been discontinued and thousands of lawsuits have been filed against Ethicon since June 2017.
