A ventral hernia is a bulge of body tissue that occurs through an opening within the abdominal wall muscles. A ventral hernia, which can occur in any location on the abdominal wall, is caused by weakness or thinness of the abdominal wall and is often  linked to past surgical incisions. Ventral hernias are routinely repaired through the use of a laparoscopic procedure to implant a mesh to reinforce or strengthen the affected area.  Unfortunately, the Ethicon Physiomesh product has a higher rate of recurrence/reoperation compared to the average rates of similar products among patients who have undergone ventral hernia repair. This conclusion follows the analysis of unpublished data from two large independent overseas hernia registries.

In response to the data findings Johnson & Johnson, the parent company of Ethicon, recalled all unused stock of Physiomesh in 2016, and issued a hazard alert for those patients who have already had the mesh implanted. Today, the company is subject to multiple personal injury lawsuits as a result of damages incurred by patients who have had complications related to the mesh implanted in them during a hernia repair surgery., .
