What’s the Problem?
September 6, 2017 – Plaintiff in the lawsuit alleges that soon after having hernia repair surgery with Physiomesh in June 2011, she developed a severe adverse reaction due to a flaw in the design of the patch. She claims that Ethicon Inc. and other defendants were negligent for failing to adequately test Physiomesh before introducing it to the market.
The complaint was originally entered in the Eastern District of Arkansas, but was subsequently transferred to the Physiomesh multidistrict litigation (MDL No. 2728) in Georgia.
In May 2016, Ethicon announced that it was withdrawing Physiomesh from the global market, after unpublished data found that the mesh was associated with a higher average recurrence and revision rates compared to competing hernia mesh patches. Ethicon was unable to find the cause of the problem, but speculated that it could be due to design flaws and patient factors.
While the action was not granted recall status in the U.S., Ethicon did ask hospitals to return any unused Physiomesh products. Ethicon said that it would not seek to reintroduce the affected mesh patches.
