CHICAGO, Jan. 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- TruLaw is offering the use of their no cost, no obligation Physiomesh Lawsuit Instant Case Evaluation for individuals who suffered health problems after being implanted with a hernia mesh as part of a surgical procedure. Physiomesh is a flexible, composite, large pore partially absorbable, polypropylene mesh manufactured by Ethicon, which was meant to repair either inguinal or incisional hernias as well as reinforce the patient's abdominal wall through a minimally invasive surgery.
According to Tor Hoerman, managing partner of TorHoerman Law, "Physiomesh is unfortunately another in a line of medical products that are marketed as a quick, easy fix with little risk. Instead, what seems simple and harmless ends up causing terrible results - often worse than the original problem."
TruLaw is assisting individuals who suffer complications such as adhesions, infections, bowel perforations, intestinal blockage, mesh migration and hernia recurrence by instantly letting them know if they need to consider protecting their legal rights.
Physiomesh lawsuits allege that defective manufacturing, defective design, inadequate warning of the risk of the Physiomesh resulted in injuries to the plaintiffs. According to Hoerman, "Manufacturers such as Ethicon are really good at telling doctors how and when to put the mesh in, but have no plan for when the mesh goes wrong. My firm believes in holding these manufacturers accountable for the injuries that result."
Hernia repairs are common – more than one million hernia repairs are performed each year in the U.S. Approximately 800,000 are to repair inguinal hernias, which occur in the inner groin, the rest can occur in other areas of the body. A hernia occurs when an organ, intestine or fatty tissue squeezes through a hole or a weak spot in the surrounding muscle or connective tissue.
Ethicon, a Johnson & Johnson company, voluntarily recalled the Physiomesh hernia repair mesh in May 2016 after a pair of observational hernia repair registries determined that the Ethicon device failed at higher rates compared to that of similar hernia mesh repairs.
