Frequently Asked Questions

The Basics of Phasix™ Mesh

Phasix™ Mesh provides a fully resorbable monofilament scaffold for rapid tissue incorporation that has been designed to allow for the repair strength of a synthetic mesh along with the remodeling characteristics of a biologic graft.

Composed of biologically-derived material, Poly-4-hydroxybutyrate (P4HB), Phasix™ Mesh provides critical strength during the initial healing phase with rapid tissue ingrowth and vascularization through its open-pore monofilament structure. Monomer form (4HB) is a naturally occurring human metabolite found in the brain, heart, liver, kidney, and muscle and P4HB scaffold has been used clinically for hernia repair for more than 5 years.

Phasix™ Mesh gradually and predictably degrades within 12 to 18 months via hydrolysis leaving behind a durable, functional repair with over 3x the strength of the native abdominal wall.

Phasix™ Mesh has not been shown to break down in the presence of bacteria - maintaining 100% of its strength at 56 days - unlike biologic grafts which demonstrate accelerated degradation in the presence of bacteria. Additionally, Phasix™ Mesh offers the benefits of rapid tissue incorporation with organized and functional collagen at the repair site, while offering high repair strength through the critical healing phase.

The Basics of Phasix™ ST Mesh 

Phasix™ ST Mesh combines two market-leading technologies into one product: monofilament resorbable Phasix™ Mesh and a proven hydrogel barrier based on Sepra® technology. It handles, sutures and fixates like a synthetic mesh, while facilitating trocar deployment during laparoscopic placement.

Phasix™ ST Mesh combines Phasix™ Mesh and a proven hydrogel barrier based on Sepra® technology into one product. While the monofilament mesh supports functional healing and a strong repair, the hydrogel barrier is designed to minimize tissue attachment to the visceral side of the mesh for intraabdominal placement.

Phasix™ ST Mesh is a biologically derived scaffold with a hydrogel barrier for intraabdominal placement. It has been designed to provide the repair strength of a synthetic mesh and the remodeling characteristics of a biologic. Additionally, its longitudinal stripes aid with orientation and visibility during placement.

The ST hydrogel barrier is designed to minimize the risk of tissue attachment, resorbs within 30 days, and has over 10 years of clinical application.

Phasix™ Mesh is indicated to reinforce soft tissue where weakness exists in patients undergoing plastic and reconstructive surgery, or for use in procedures involving soft tissue repair, such as the repair of hernia or other fascial defects that require the addition of a reinforcing or bridging material to obtain the desired surgical result.


Because Phasix™ Mesh is fully resorbable, it should not be used in repairs where permanent wound or organ support from the mesh is required.


Phasix™ Mesh must not be put in direct contact with bowel or viscera. The safety and product use for patients with hypersensitivities to tetracycline hydrochloride or kanamycin sulfate is unknown. Use of this device in patients with known allergies to these antibiotics should be avoided. The safety and effectiveness of Phasix™ Mesh in pediatric use has not been evaluated or established. If an infection develops, treat the infection aggressively. An unresolved infection may require removal of the device.

Adverse Reactions

Possible complications include infection, seroma, pain, mesh migration, wound dehiscence, hemorrhage, adhesions, hematoma, inflammation, allergic reaction, extrusion, erosion, fistula formation and recurrence of the hernia or soft tissue defect.

Please consult package insert for more detailed safety information and instructions for use.
