Physiomesh Causing Complications
The Physiomesh is a flexible composite mesh that is used in hernia repair. It is made from polypropylene, the same mesh is also used to reinforce the vaginal wall in transvaginal mesh surgery. This the same vaginal mesh that has been falling apart in women.
Johnson and Johnson Withdraws Physiomesh
In May of 2016, Ethicon issued a worldwide recall of Physiomesh. The recall was based on the fact that the medical product was associated with a higher risk of complications, including the need for additional surgeries. Many women who underwent hernia repair surgeries that used Physiomesh experienced mesh failure events.

FDA On Physiomesh
A November 2010 report notes “tears, rips, holes in device” are reported, leading to “minimal adhesion” and removal of the mesh. A February 2012 report in which a patient, who underwent hernia repair surgery that used Physiomesh, returned one week after surgery with complaints of vomiting, constipation, and abdominal pain and distention. The symptoms were a result of the Physiomesh. Ethicon did issue a voluntary recall and was not mandated by the FDA to do so.
