NEW YORK, Oct. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Hernia mesh lawsuits (http://www.rxinjuryhelp.com/ethicon-physiomesh/lawsuit/) involving Ethicon Inc.'s Physiomesh Flexible Composite Mesh product continue to mount in courts around the U.S. One of the most recent cases was filed on September 22nd in the U.S. District Court, Middle District of Florida, on behalf of a woman who claims to have experienced serious complications, including persistent abdominal pain, diminished bowel motility and bowel obstructions, following incisional Physiomesh hernia repair in 2014. She underwent a second surgery in 2015, at which time her doctor attempted to remove the hernia patch. However, he was unable to remove all of the Physiomesh material, leaving the Plaintiff with debris from the mesh stuck to her abdominal wall and bowels. The complaint alleges that the Physiomesh Flexible Composite Mesh device she received was defectively designed and manufactured, and asserts that the Plaintiff is likely suffer pain and medical complications for the rest of her life. (CaseNo. 6:16-cv-01663-PGB-DAB)

We have heard from a number of other hernia patients who allegedly experienced similar issues following surgery with this device," says Sandy A. Liebhard, a partner at Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is now offering free, no-obligation legal reviews to individuals who may have been harmed by Ethicon's Physiomesh Flexible Composite Mesh.
Physiomesh Flexible Composite Mesh Withdrawn From Market
The Florida lawsuit indicates that the Plaintiff was implanted with a Physiomesh device bearing Product Code PHY2025V. This Product Code was included in a worldwide withdrawal of Physiomesh Flexible Composite Mesh announced by Ethicon in May 2016. The company decided to pull the hernia mesh product from the market after unpublished data from two European registries indicated the recurrence and revision rates following laparoscopic ventral hernia pair were higher with the device than rates associated with the comparator set of mesh. Ethicon was unable to determine the cause of this issue, but noted that it could be due to product characteristics, as well as operative and patient factors. The company indicated that it would not be returning any of the affected Physiomesh products to the market.
