About the case

We are investigating serious complications from various hernia repair products like the Ethicon Physiomesh. Hernia patches can break, leading to bowel perforations and to abnormal passageways between the intestines and other organs. If you or a loved one have suffered a severe injury requiring additional surgeries, you may be entitled to compensation without going to court.

What are hernia mesh patches?

Hernia mesh, often used in hernia repair surgeries, is a loosely woven sheet made from both organic and inorganic materials and functions to provide additional support to tissue and/or organs. Inorganic mesh is designed to be permanent, while biological mesh is meant to dissolve in the body over time. The patch is placed behind the hernia through a small incision. It is then held open by a “memory recoil ring” that first allows it to be folded for insertion, and then causes it to spring open and lay flat once it is in place. Hernia mesh is also known as surgical mesh, hernia patch or plugs.

Once implanted in the body, hernia meshes have been linked to serious, often life threatening complications. The recoil ring that opens the patch has been found to break, leading to bowel perforations and to abnormal passageways between the intestines and other organs. Symptoms associated with ring breakage include abdominal pain, fever and tenderness at the implant site; possibly requiring additional surgeries. The Physiomesh, a widely used mesh patch, was withdrawn form the market in 2016.
