Ethicon Physiomesh Side Effects Prompt Lawsuits

Santa Clara, CA: Further to the withdrawal of Johnson & Johnson’s Physiomesh in May, 2016, the first defective products lawsuits are being prepared to go to trial. Physiomesh, a hernia repair product, was withdrawn by the company due to reports of high failure rates.

Some patients who had Physiomesh implanted have reportedly had to undergo revision surgeries as a result of the product failing.

The first lawsuit was filed by Matthew Huff, just weeks before the mesh was withdrawn by the company, alleging that the hernia repair mesh was defective, unreasonably dangerous and not suitable for use.

Among the side effects listed in his complaint, that are alleged to have resulted from his Physiomesh implant, are severe pain in the abdomen, fever, nausea, chills and redness on the skin of the abdomen. During a subsequent hospitalization, it was discovered that the hernia mesh was infected, resulting in two abdominal abscesses, intestinal fistula and the need for surgery to debride the abscesses.

Further, Huff claims that the complications arising from the defective Ethicon Physiomesh implant, have left him with severe and serious health problems, including two open abdominal wounds that need to be cleaned and packed daily, as well as other injuries.
