Where there’s smoke, there’s fire. You might have heard of some of the problems associated with the Johnson & Johnson Physiomesh product. They even issued a “market withdrawal.” Does that mean I have grounds for a Physiomesh lawsuit ?
What is Wrong with Physiomesh?
There have been two studies confirming that the Johnson & Johnson Ethicon Physiomesh Composite Mesh hernia patch had higher rates of hernia re-opening, called “recurrence” than similar brands. The patient was forced to undergo additional surgery to solve the problem. The manufacturer has since issued a “market withdrawal.” The FDA explicitly pointed out that this was not the same as a recall. What exactly is the difference? Truth be told, it is a matter for legal experts to decide. Perhaps, an official Physiomesh recall would have been too public. Either way, the manufacturer’s actions have shown that there is a problem with the medical device.
Common Hernia Mesh Problems
The reason why you have the Physiomesh implanted is to cure your hernia problems. There are between 100,000 to 150,000 ventral hernia surgeries in the United States each year. The Physiomesh is stitched over the hernia to strengthen the abdominal wall to prevent recurrence. The problem is that some of these Physiomesh seem to have a higher defect rate than similar medical devices. Therefore, you might suffer from the following complications of hernia mesh: pain, infection, recurrence, adhesion, intestinal blockage, migration or shrinkage. You might have gone through one hernia surgery and now you might need to go through another to replace the faulty hernia mesh. You need compensation, especially if you have experienced significant pain and suffering.
