Ethicon Physiomesh

What is a Hernia?

A hernia occurs when an organ, intestine or fatty tissue erupts through a hole or a weakened spot in the surrounding connective tissue or muscle.

Why is Mesh Used in Hernia Surgeries?

Hernias have a high rate of recurrence, and surgeons often use surgical mesh to strengthen the hernia repair and reduce the rate of recurrence.

What is Ethicon Physiomesh?

This is a flexible composite mesh that is frequently used by surgeons in hernia surgery repairs. It is manufactured by Ethicon, a Johnson & Johnson subsidiary.

What is the Problem With Ethicon Physiomesh?

There have been many reported cases of failures of the mesh because it is alleged that it is not strong enough to hold up against the force created by the abdominal wall. These failures frequently lead to the herniation occurring again and the need for another surgery.

What is Going on With the Ethicon Physiomesh Now?

What is going on with the Ethicon Physiomesh now? Ethicon Physiomesh Flexible Composite Mesh was recalled in May 2016.
