Physiomesh Hernia Mesh Lawyers

Written by lisaspitzer on . Posted in Class Action Articles, Physiomesh Hernia Mesh Lawsuit, Physiomesh Lawyer

Physiomesh Hernia Mesh lawyers are filing Hernia Mesh lawsuits for your failed Physiomesh used to repair your hernia. Ethicon voluntarily withdrew the Physiomesh from the  market in May of 2016  after independent studies revealed high rates of recurrence and failure from the Physiomesh.

What Is The Physiomesh?

The Physiomesh is a hernia repair mesh  made from polypropylene just like the vaginal mesh products. The FDA originally approved Ethicon’s Physiomesh on April 9, 2010. Ethicon used the FDA 510(k) approval program for the Physiomesh. This allowed them to get it on the market fast.

Problems With The Physiomesh

Numerous studies have shown that the Physiomesh has  lower incorporation strengths than the other hernia mesh products.  Physiomesh coating  issues were observed over time to lead to scar plate formation, but little to no abdominal wall adherence.
