If you checked your mesh paperwork and found a matching brand name or product from the list above, and your revision or hernia repair surgery was in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 or 2016, you might be eligible to file a lawsuit against your manufacturer(s).
Physiomesh, also called Ethicon Physiomesh, is currently one of the most problematic types of surgical mesh used to repair hernias. In fact, Ethicon mesh implants were responsible for at least ten deaths according to the FDA’s MAUDE database. Check your mesh model or brand in the MAUDE database to see if any reported deaths, injuries, infections, or any other adverse complications have been reported to the FDA.
Physiomesh brands that were implanted before the patient died include PHYSIOMESH, PHYSIOMESH RECTANGULAR, PHYSIOMESH OVAL, and ETHICON PHYSIOMESH 20×30 CM.
Chances are, the surgical mesh brand used to repair your hernia was documented in the paperwork you took home when you were released from surgery. If you do not have the paperwork, our team of researchers can investigate the medical records on file with the hospital where your hernia repair surgery took place to figure out the specific manufacturer, mesh product name, lot number and any other information important to the success of your lawsuit.
Although the mesh implant you have does not need to be recalled for you to be eligible for a lawsuit, you can check to see if your specific mesh has been recalled on the FDA’s official medical device recall page. Alternatively, you could also check the manufacturer’s website. Your mesh implant need not be recalled for you to become eligible to file a claim for injuries or to receive lawsuit compensation.
