Johnson and Johnson Hernia Mesh Lawsuits Filed

Reading Time: < 1 minutes

 A great amount of lawsuits have been filed against Johnson & Johnson‘s Ethicon Proceed surgical patch in NJ state court stating that the hernia mesh has caused complications as it has been defectively designed.

More complaints were filed the past week in the Superior Court of New Jersey in which each involve identical claims mentioning that horribly painful and life debilitating injuries occurred after hernia repair involving Ethicon Proceed Systems — the complaint also mentions that users and doctors were not adequately warned about the risk of problems from the hernia mesh.

More complaints are being filed telling of similar stories of mesh failure, recurrent hernias and the need for revision surgery.

“Defendants had the ability to inform surgeons, hospitals, or GPOs of developing problems or defects in its devices through e-mail, letter, recalls, warnings in product inserts, and/or through its product representatives, who work directly with the surgeon,” Sanderson’s lawsuit states. “The multiple layers of the Ethicon Proceed increase the intensity and duration of the inflammatory response. That response in turn increases dense adhesion formation from underlying organs to the Ethicon Proceed, resulting in bowel complications, mesh contracture, hernia recurrence, increased foreign body reaction, chronic severe pain, and more.”
