You might have heard of some of the problems associated with the Johnson & Johnson Physiomesh product. They even issued a “market withdrawal.” Does that mean I have grounds for a Physiomesh lawsuit?
There have been two studies confirming that the Johnson & Johnson Ethicon Physiomesh Composite Mesh hernia patch had higher rates of hernia re-opening, called “recurrence” than similar brands. The patient was forced to undergo additional surgery to solve the problem. The manufacturer has since issued a “market withdrawal.” The FDA explicitly pointed out that this was not the same as a recall. What exactly is the difference? Truth be told, it is a matter for legal experts to decide. Perhaps, an official Physiomesh recall would have been too public. Either way, the manufacturer’s actions have shown that there is a problem with the medical device.
