What is this lawsuit about?
Ethicon Physiomesh Flexible Composite Mesh is a type of surgical mesh commonly used in hernia surgeries. Ethicon issued a voluntary recall after an analysis of data from 2 large registries that track hernia surgery patients revealed that Physiomesh had a higher than average rate of hernia re-occurrence and revision surgeries compared to other mesh products. Ethicon stated that they believe the reasons for the higher than average rates are a combination of “possible product characteristics, operative and patient factors.” However, many are suggesting that the problems people are experiencing are due to poor design, that Ethicon’s Physiomesh is more rigid than other products on the market.
