Studies link Physiomesh to complications

Several studies published in various medical journals have compared the Physiomesh to other meshes on the market and found Ethicon’s Physiomesh caused significant complications.

One study published in the journal Surgical Endoscopy in March 2016 intended to compare Ethicon’s Physiomesh with Bard Davol’s Ventralight mesh in 100 patients at a single hospital. But researchers cut the study short after some of the patients implanted with the Physiomesh suffered recurring hernias and severe pain after surgery.

About 20% of the patients who received the Physiomesh device had a recurring hernia in the first 6 months following surgery, and most patients in the Physiomesh group reported significantly higher rates of pain within the first 3 months of surgery.

Another study published in the same journal in August 2015 found the Physiomesh fractured over time and led to an increase in scar tissue formation when tested in rats, while a study published in the Journal of the Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons showed the Physiomesh caused significantly more inflammation, fibrosis and hemorrhage compared to another mesh system in female pigs.
