Physiomesh: What is it?
Physiomesh Flexible Composite Hernia Mesh is a kind of surgical mesh product utilized to cure a number of hernias with a minimum invasive surgery.
Physiomesh: Its Components
The manufacturer Ethicon used polypropylene in the base layer of Physiomesh, the same product that the company used in their transvaginal mesh & bladder slings and also faced tens of thousands lawsuits from users. Ethicon added an absorbable film coating on either side of polypropylene used in Physiomesh as a safety feature. However, the company could not stop the destruction caused by this defective surgical product.
For those who don’t know, polypropylene when comes in direct contact with human tissues can prove to be dangerous.
Physiomesh: A Poor Design
The company may have known from the beginning that Physiomesh was a poorly designed surgical product and was very dangerous to insert in patients. A coated hernia mesh, Physiomesh boasted of a heavy coating on either sides of mesh—something that claimed to prevent bowel from coming in direct contact with polypropylene. Polypropylene is a substance that’s sure to stick to any human tissue and if former sticks to bowel, it can result in severe injuries. On the other hand, if polypropylene is not exposed, it means hernia mesh is not incorporated properly into abdominal wall. As a result, Physiomesh floats and moves around in the patients’ abdominal cavities.
