When a medical device like Ethicon's Physiomesh Composite hernia repair mesh fails for several people, it usually signals that it is defective and could hurt thousands of others. That was the logic used by Johnson & Johnson when they voluntarily withdrew the Ethicon Physiomesh Hernia Repair Mesh from the market due to a large and ever-increasing number of device failures reported to the European hernia safety registry Herniamed in 2016. Since then, instances of Physiomesh hernia repair mesh failure have registered with the FDA's MAUDE medical device failure online database. The system gives those injured by a medical device's alleged failure a space to register their complaint and also the device manufacturer a chance to explain what they think may have gone wrong. When Johnson & Johnson withdrew Physiomesh their response for the device failure was to cite "multi-factorial reasons." Legal experts claim Ethicon's voluntary withdrawal was to get out ahead of the Physiomesh problem and avoid the publicity that an FDA recall would have created.

One layer of hernia repair mesh is polypropylene plastic, a material better suited to make clear plastic sandwich bags and microwaveable storage containers than for medical devices. Polypropylene has the qualities of strength and flexibility. Scientists have concluded that polypropylene plastic tends to be rejected by the human immune system when placed inside the body. Polypropylene may degrade and break free of the natural tissue component of composite hernia mesh above the hernia where it is supposed to be absorbed. Hernia mesh failure can cause internal bleeding, infection, or a life-threatening blockage when it breaks free from the spot above the surgically repaired hernia and falls into the lower abdomen. If you or a loved one have experienced the pain of a failed hernia mesh surgery, you should speak with a Hernia Mesh Lawyer to see if you qualify to file a claim against Ethicon or other hernia mesh, manufacturers.
