Hernia Mesh Lawsuits On Course To Begin This Fall

Many draw parallels between hernia repair mesh and vaginal support mesh which was made by the same manufacturers using the same materials

Monday, March 30, 2020 - Ethicon Physiomesh lawsuits are slated to begin in the second half of the year as the medical complications and economic disruption from the novel coronavirus pandemic winds down and everyday life begins to get back to normal. Hernia repair patients continue to file lawsuits against Ethicon Inc, the maker of the Ethicon Physiomesh Composite Hernia Repair Mesh over the company's negligence in bringing a defective medical device to market. Experts in Europe agree that upwards of 30% of all hernia repair mesh devices could fail within ten years from the time of being implanted to help support a surgically-repaired hernia, leading to a health crisis of immense proportions. That means about 300,000 of over one million patients every year that elect to or are sold on, using dangerous polypropylene hernia repair mesh could require putting their lives at risk and be forced to undergo one or more revision surgeries after enduring the pain and suffering that living with a failed and malfunctioning hernia repair mesh entails.

Hernia repair mesh is made from the same polypropylene material as the failed and recalled vaginal support mesh that has endangered the lives of millions of women and left them permanently disabled and incontinent, and it is feared that hernia repair mesh patients could suffer a similar fate. Mesh manufacturers like Johnson & Johnson have been forced to pay paid hundreds of millions of dollars to settle transvaginal mesh claims, the most notable being when Johnson & Johnson and their Ethicon subsidiary were held accountable in an Australian court and forced to pay victims of failed vaginal support mesh in a class-action lawsuit. According to, "(women) were vindicated by the outcome of a class action brought against manufacturer Johnson & Johnson and related companies Ethicon Sarl and Ethicon Inc. The landmark judgment, in which Justice Anna Katzmann found that the manufacturers and suppliers of the mesh had engaged in misleading conduct and negligence, brought many of the 30 mesh-affected women present in the Federal Court in Sydney to tears. At all relevant times all the Ethicon devices had a defect, all such times all the devices were also unfit for the purpose for which they were required, Justice Katzmann said. All the devices carried risks of complications... against which no adequate warnings were given."

The list of medical complications that are a result of broken and/or dislodged hernia repair mesh is too large to enumerate but mirror those suffered by women with a vaginal support mesh. lists those difficulties as a result of surgical mesh as including "chronic inflammatory reaction, erosion of the mesh into surrounding organs, infection, chronic pain, pain with sex, incontinence, damage to surrounding tissues, hemorrhage, leg weakness, further surgery, and psychological injury." Add to that list broken shards of calcified hernia repair mesh traveling within the abdominal cavity lacerating internal organs and the intestines along the way, creating internal bleeding and the real possibility of dying from infection.
