Defective & Recalled Hernia Mesh Products

According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), many hernia repair complications are associated with defective or recalled mesh products. Many surgical mesh products are introduced to the market with little research. Through the FDA’s 510(k) approval process, manufacturers must guarantee only that their device is equivalent to another product on the market.

Is This You?

  • Did you undergo a laparoscopic hernia surgery?
  • Was a hernia mesh used to repair the hernia?
  • Did you suffer complications after the original surgery?
  • Did you have to undergo revision surgery to fix the failed repair?

Many surgical mesh products are introduced to the market with little research. Through the FDA’s 510(k) approval process, manufacturers must guarantee only that their device is equivalent to another product on the market. Many serious side effects include:

  • Infection
  • Hernia Recurrence
  • Adhesion
  • Bowel Obstruction

  • Revision Surgery
  • Internal Bleeding

Hernia Mesh Recall

Johnson & Johnson, the parent company behind Ethicon, has announced they are removing their Physiomesh Flexible Composite Mesh product from the market. The company said they are withdrawing the product from the market following an analysis recommended by their medical safety team. The analysis found that re-occurrence/reoperation rates in patients who had Physiomesh implanted were higher than the “average rates of the comparator set of meshes.”

A market withdrawal is different from a formal recall. Recalls are often demanded by the Food and Drug Administration, meaning the companies behind defective products have no choice in whether their materials are pulled from the market or not. A market withdrawal, on the other hand, is voluntary.
