Ethicon Physiomesh™ is a large pore, flexible composite mesh made of non-absorbable polypropylene and used in minimally invasive ventral hernia repair and other fascial deficiencies. In May 2016, Ethicon removed many of their Physiomesh™ products from the market. Patients using the Ethicon Physiomesh™ are at a higher risk of revision surgeries and hernia recurrence based on an analysis of hernia repair reports. A direct cause of why the product is failing has not been determined according to Ethicon.
