Ethicon Mesh Alleged For Infections, Recurrent Hernia

  • Hernia Mesh Medical Record Review & Outsourcing Services

On June 13, Arlene Marcus, a Florida woman, filed a lawsuit against Johnson & Johnson (J&J) and its Ethicon subsidiary for selling defective and substandard hernia mesh implant.

According to the court documents, Marcus underwent a surgery to implant a medium-sized version of the Prolene Hernia System in February 2005. Four years later, the surgeons had to remove the hernia mesh following infections, recurrent hernia, and other complications allegedly caused due to the implant. The lawsuit also indicates Marcus was at a higher risk of severe complications during abdominal surgery and warns that she may be unable to undergo further abdominal surgeries even if needed. The said failure in plaintiff’s device was due to the misleading marketing and warrant about the mesh design and composition.

Judge Richard W. Story is presiding over all Ethicon hernia mesh lawsuits consolidated under MDL No. 2327 (In Re: Ethicon Inc., Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation). Similar allegations have been raised against Bard hernia mesh and Atrium C-Qur mesh. Bard hernia mesh lawsuits are consolidated under MDL No. 2846; Atrium C-Qur mesh lawsuits are consolidated under MDL No. 2753.
