Lexington Hernia Mesh Lawyers
Prior to a voluntary recall in May 2016, Johnson & Johnson Ethicon Physiomesh® Flexible Composite Mesh was used to strengthen weakened and damaged tissue in hernia repairs. A pair of unpublished studies conducted by Herniamed German Registry and Danish Hernia Database determined that Ethicon hernia mesh failed at higher rates compared to that of other similar hernia repair products. Wilson & McQueen is reviewing potential claims of patients who suffered infections, hernia recurrence, pain and other symptoms as a result of Ethicon hernia mesh.
Background on Hernia Mesh
Decades ago, mesh materials supplanted simple suture as the preferred method of repairing many types of hernias. Surgical mesh comes in different forms, made from various materials, and usage depends on the type of hernia being treated, as well as the surgeon’s preferences.
Hernia mesh can be made from natural (animal tissue) or synthetic materials with the intention of being either absorbable by the body or non-absorbable. With additional research over time, companies have developed new mesh medical devices designed to be more effective with fewer negative side effects.
