Physiomesh Flexible Composite Mesh has multiple layers laminated together. The center layer is polypropylene and it is covered on both sides by polymer films that are designed to reduce inflammation and unwanted adhesions. Unfortunately, some patients have developed unwanted adhesions and complications. With some patients, Physiomesh™ has failed to stay in place and implant properly in the abdominal wall. Instead, it has moved inside the patient’s body and gotten attached to organs such as the bladder or a loop of the intestines. Patients who have experienced serious complications or reactions to Physiomesh™ may require additional surgery to remove the defective mesh and repair the hernia again.
