Physiomesh Lawsuits Contend Ethicon’s Hernia Mesh Cause Patients To Undergo Revision Surgery after Pain, Infection, and Bleeding.

physiomesh-lawsuit-hernia-mesh-lawsuit-ethicon-lawyer-attorneyThe federal judge presiding over a Florida woman’s Physiomesh lawsuit issued a Case Management and Scheduling Order. The hernia mesh lawsuit alleges the women suffered injuries from Ethicon’s Physiomesh Flexible Composite Mesh. Federal courts are seeing filings of Physiomesh mesh lawsuits on behalf of patients who suffered pain, infection, bleeding and underwent revision surgery due to the failure of Ethicon’s hernia mesh. Ethicon Inc., a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, voluntarily withdrew its Flexible Composite Mesh from the global market after an analysis showed higher failure rates and revision surgeries were associated with the device.

In his Case Management Order, U.S. District Judge Paul G. Byron gave attorneys for the plaintiff, and for defendants, Ethicon Inc. and Johnson & Johnson, a January 31, 2017 deadline to file motions to add parties or to amend pleadings. Both sides will have until December 1, 2017 to complete the discovery phase of the litigation. Judge Byron’s order specifically noted that pending motions will not extend the discovery deadline unless permission is obtained by the Court. The deadline for filing all motions, including those involving evidence to present at trial, is March 27, 2018. The jury trial is scheduled for May 1, 2018.

Ethicon Physiomesh Flexible Composite Mesh is used in minimally invasive surgeries to repair ventral hernias and other fascial defects in the abdominal wall that cause hernias. Ethicon’s hernia mesh received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2010. Under the federal agency’s 510(k) process, manufacturers are not required to conduct human clinical trials if they can prove that their medical devices are substantially equivalent to a similar device already on the market.

In May, Ethicon sent a letter to health care professionals notifying them of its intention to voluntarily withdraw its Physiomesh Flexible Composite Mesh from the global market. According to the letter, an analysis of unpublished data from two large independent registries in Germany and Denmark found that laparoscopic ventral hernia repair that used the Physiomesh had a higher rate of hernia recurrence and revision surgery compared to other similar meshes in the registries.

The Physiomesh lawsuit pending in the Florida federal court alleges that Ethicon’s Physiomesh Flexible Composite Mesh which the plaintiff had implanted in May 2014, failed. Due to the failure, the plaintiff underwent surgery to remove the hernia mesh in July 2015, the complaint said. The hernia mesh lawsuit claims the Physiomesh Flexible Composite Mesh was defective because the doctor could not remove all of the hernia mesh after two hours of surgery “due to the severe adhesions to the bowels and abdominal wall.” (Physiomesh Lawsuit Case No. 6:16-cv-1663, U.S. District Court, Middle District of Florida)
