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 complications compared to other mesh products. These complications include hernia re-occurrence and revision surgeries.

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 hernia repair complications people are experiencing are due to poor design; that Ethicon’s Physiomesh is more rigid than other products on the market.
