How Hernia Mesh Implants Are Failing
Ethicon initiated a voluntary product recall on their surgical meshes used in laparoscopic (minimally-invasive) ventral hernia repairs, succeeding the conclusion of unpublished data from two European registries. This data indicated the recurrence and revision rates following laparoscopic ventral hernia repairs were higher with the device than rates associated with the comparator set of mesh. The voluntary recall has been communicated to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the European Competent Authorities.
Based on data, Ethicon believes the recurrence and revision rates are higher due to multifactorial issues, such as possible product characteristics, as well as operative and patient factors. The individuals who experienced these recurrences or revisions may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
Because Ethicon’s mesh implants were substantially equivalent to some of their other products approved by the FDA, human clinical trials were not required for the Atrium C-Qur or the Ethicon Physiomesh Composite Mesh.
