Ethicon Physiomesh Lawsuit
Physiomesh was originally approved by the FDA in 2010 without any new safety studies because the product was said to be similar to other hernia mesh products on the market. However, claims are being filed against Ethicon, the manufacturer of the Physiomesh Composite Mesh hernia patch, due to the high rates of hernia recurrence and re-operation. Physiomesh consists of a thick coating made of non-absorbable Monocryl on both sides of the polyprophylene mesh to prevent adhesions and inflammation. Lawyers have alleged that one common complication with the Physiomesh is that it prevents adequate incorporation into the body, which allows the Physiomesh to move around in the patient’s abdominal cavity.
The Buckley Law Group is also investigating potential claims related to Atrium C-Qur Hernia Mesh. In July of 2013, Atrium recalled most of the C-Qur hernia mesh products.
According to the FDA, the most common complications are:
- Hernia recurrence
- Intestinal blockage
- Mesh migration
- Mesh shrinkage
