Designed for a strong repair enables functional tissue remodeling

Phasix™ ST Mesh combines two market-leading technologies into one product: monofilament resorbable Phasix™ Mesh and a proven hydrogel barrier based on Sepra® technology. While the monofilament mesh supports functional healing and a strong repair, the hydrogel barrier minimizes tissue attachment to the visceral side of the mesh for intraabdominal placement.1

These meshes are available in different shapes, such as round, rectangle, and square.

For high-risk/comorbid patients, surgeons have had to choose between permanent synthetic meshes and biologic grafts—and their inherent pros and cons. Synthetic meshes can have complications that lead to mesh removal or reoperation, while biologic grafts can have accelerated degradation in the presence of bacteria which may lead to mesh failure.

Phasix™ ST Mesh handles, sutures and fixates like a synthetic mesh, while exhibiting the remodeling characteristics of a biologic mesh. It facilitates trocar deployment during laparoscopic placement.

The ST hydrogel barrier

  • Minimizes risk of tissue attachment
  • Has over 10 years of clinical application
  • Resorbs in 30 days
  • 15 clinical studies

The 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.

The Phasix™ ST Mesh does the following: 

  • Handles, sutures and fixates like a synthetic mesh
  • Facilitates trocar deployment during laparoscopic placement
  • Its longitudinal stripes aid with orientation and visibility during placement

Phasix™ ST Mesh is indicated for use in the reinforcement of soft tissue, where weakness exists, in procedures involving soft tissue repair, such as for the repair of hernias, including hiatal hernias.


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


Device manufacture involves exposure to tetracycline hydrochloride and kanamycin sulfate. The safety and product use for patients with hypersensitivities to these antibiotics is unknown. Use of this device in patients with known allergies to tetracycline hydrochloride or kanamycin sulfate should be avoided.

Ensure proper orientation; the coated side of the prosthesis should be oriented against the bowel or sensitive organs.

Do not place the uncoated mesh side against the bowel. There is a risk for adhesion formation or erosions when the uncoated mesh side is placed in direct contact with the bowel or viscera. (Reference Surface Orientation section.)

The safety and effectiveness of Phasix™ ST Mesh in bridging repairs has not been evaluated or established. The use of any synthetic mesh or patch in a contaminated or infected wound could lead to fistula formation and/or extrusion of the mesh and it is not recommended.

If an infection develops, treat the infection aggressively. Consideration should be given regarding the need to remove the mesh. An unresolved infection may require removal of the mesh.

For hiatal hernia repair, the use of Phasix™ ST Mesh circumferentially around the esophagus is not recommended.

For hiatal hernia repair, the use of Phasix™ ST Mesh to bridge the hiatus is not recommended.

The safety and effectiveness of Phasix™ ST Mesh in the following applications has not been evaluated or established: Pregnant women, Pediatric use, Neural and Cardiovascular tissue.


The safety and effectiveness of Phasix™ ST Mesh has not been evaluated in the presence of malignancies in the abdominopelvic cavity.

Adverse Reactions

In preclinical testing, Phasix™ ST Mesh elicited a minimal tissue reaction characteristic of foreign body response to a substance. The tissue reaction resolved as the mesh was resorbed. Possible complications may include, but are not limited to, seroma, adhesion, hematoma, pain, infection, inflammation, allergic reaction, hemorrhage, extrusion, erosion, migration, fistula formation, and recurrence of the hernia or soft tissue defect. Possible complications in hiatal hernia repair may include esophageal erosion and dysphagia related to crural fibrosis.
