What’s the problem?
October 12, 2017 – According to the lawsuit, plaintiff had surgery to repair her recurrent incisional hernia in September 2015 at the OSV Providence St. Vincent Medical Center in Portland, Oregon.
The next month, she was again hospitalized to perform a CT-guided procedure to remove fluid from an area where a seroma (fluid pocket) had formed after the hernia repair.
Less than a year later, doctors found that her Physiomesh patch had become intertwined with the tissues in her small bowels, requiring her to undergo another long and painful surgery during which enough mesh was finally dissected to remove it from the patient. After the procedure, a new mesh product – not Physiomesh – was implanted to again repair the hernia.
The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Oregon, and subsequently transferred to the Physiomesh MDL in the Northern District of Georgia.
