Ethicon, of Johnson and Johnson, issued a voluntary recall of its Physiomesh™, Flexible Composite Mesh.
Hernias are most common in the abdomen, and may be caused by exertion, obesity or abdominal surgery. Hernia mesh was intended to repair hernias, occurring when an organ pushed through an opening in the muscle or tissue wall. Many people are suffering from major health problems from these devices. Physiomesh™ was recalled, as other brands like C-QUR™ mesh have been associated with similar problems.
Surgery Side Effect
Surgery is often needed to remove the mesh. Unfortunately, removal may not be possible.
