The Benefits of Phasix Mesh for Hernia repair surgery
With a long history of Surgical experience, we have seen many technologies come and go, some last and some do not, or they are further improved upon. It is rare that we find a product that is truly different or unique and offers both a clinical and patient benefit that has not been available prior.
The development of Phasix Mesh has brought a lot of benefits to those undergoinghernia repair. The mesh is fully resorbable and allows for rapid tissue incorporation. It provides the repair strength of a synthetic mesh and the remodelling characteristics of a biological graft.
As the Phasix Mesh is absorbed into the body, it is replaced with functional tissue which results in strong repair at one year. Phasix Mesh is a monofilament mesh, in which these designs have been proven to be more biocompatible and less susceptible to bacteria growth.
The Phasix mesh is highly recognised by the body. This is because Phasix™ (P4HB), which in the Monomer form (4HB) is a naturally occurring human metabolite found in the brain, heart, liver, kidney, and muscle.
