Yes, there are two Physiomesh™ products with similar names. That can be confusing to patients. One is Physiomesh™ Flexible Composite Mesh (for laparoscopic use). It was designed for use in laparoscopic hernia repair surgeries in the abdominal wall. Ethicon, the manufacturer, voluntarily withdrew Physiomesh™ Flexible Composite Mesh (for laparoscopic use) from the market in May 2016. The other product is Physiomesh™ OPEN Flexible Composite Mesh. The second product is used during more complicated, open hernia repair surgeries involving a large incision. The second product remains on the market and has not been withdrawn.
