As Americans continue to file hernia mesh lawsuits, Canadians began their hernia mesh class action claiming they weren’t warned of the implant’s risks.

The device at the center of the claims is Ethicon’s Physiomesh Hernia Mesh which Health Canada recalled in 2016. The Canadian agency’s action came after it learned that recurrence and reoperation rates with the device were higher than those of other meshes.

After the recall, Canadians who received Physiomesh suffered severe pain and had to undergo additional surgeries to repair hernias that reoccurred.

Canadian lawyer Jill McCartney is representing plaintiffs in the class action.
