What’s the Problem?
October 12, 2017 – Plaintiff in the suit claims that she had surgery to repair recurrent incisional hernia in September 2015 at the OSV Providence St. Vincent Medical Center in Portland, Oregon.
The complaint states that after the surgery she started to have severe pain, significant bleeding and other symptoms. On September 4, 2015, just one day after the initial surgery, she underwent another procedure to reduce the swelling and stop the bleeding.
Plaintiff was hospitalized again by the end of the next month, this time for doctors to perform a CT-guided procedure to remove fluid from the abdominal area where a seroma had developed after her first surgery.
Less than a year later, doctors found that her Physiomesh patch had become intertwined with the tissues in her small bowels, requiring her to undergo another long and painful surgery during which enough mesh was finally dissected to remove it from the patient. After the procedure, a new mesh product – not Physiomesh – was implanted to again repair the hernia.
The complaint was initially entered in Oregon, and then transferred to the Northern District of Georgia, where a multidistrict litigation (MDL No. 2782) has been established to handle such claims.
