Physiomesh Lawsuit and Recall Information

Ethicon, a Johnson & Johnson subsidiary, announced a recall for Ethicon Physiomesh ® Flexible Composite Mesh on May 25, 2016, after data from two European hernia registries revealed higher rates of hernia recurrence and re-operation in patients who received Ethicon Physiomesh ® Composite Mesh when compared to patients who received a similar mesh product for hernia repair.

More About The Ethicon Physiomesh Recall

Ethicon recalled its hernia mesh product after an analysis of data from two independent hernia registries in Germany and Denmark showed higher rates of hernia recurrence and re-operation in patients undergoing hernia repair with Ethicon Physiomesh ® Composite Mesh than in patients receiving comparator hernia mesh products. Ethicon alerted surgical care professionals of these findings and the Physiomesh Recall in May of 2016.

Ethicon advised health care practitioners to follow patients who have received the recalled hernia mesh “in the usual manner.”

Hernia Mesh Complications

According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) the most common adverse events following mesh hernia repair can include:

• hernia recurrence
• additional surgery
• infection
• pain
• adhesion (scar-like tissue that sticks tissue together)
• intestinal blockage or bowel obstruction
• mesh migration
• mesh shrinkage (contraction)

What Is Physiomesh?

Ethicon Physiomesh ® Flexible Composite Mesh was marketed for the repair of hernias and other fascial (connective tissue) deficiencies. The product is composed of a flexible, nonabsorbable, polypropylene (plastic polymer) mesh and biodegradable polymers.

Physiomesh Was Approved Without Clinical Trials

Physiomesh was approved for use in surgical patients via 510(k) Premarket Notification process on April 9, 2010. A 510(k) requires a medical device manufacturer to demonstrate that the new product that they intend to market is substantially equivalent to a similar U.S. legally marketed medical device. Ethicon did not conduct clinical trials to demonstrate that Physiomesh is safe and effective for use in surgical patients, but instead was allowed to market its product by submitting laboratory and animal testing data demonstrating “substantial equivalence” to similar marketed hernia meshes.
