Designed to enable constructive and functional tissue remodeling1

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.1

Phasix Animation


Phasix™ Mesh is a knitted monofilament mesh scaffold using Poly-4-hydroxybutyrate (P4HB), a biologically derived, fully resorbable material.

  • Monomer form (4HB) is a naturally occurring human metabolite found in the brain, heart, liver, kidney, and muscle
  • Predictably resorbs through hydrolysis, as P4HB metabolizes into biocompatible byproducts (CO2 and H2O)1

Repairs *
The open monofilament mesh scaffold provides early integration and repair strength*

Preclinical testing confirms vascular integration and incorporation, with abundant mature collagen at 52 weeks. Gradually transfers load to native tissue over time*

As Phasix™ Mesh is remodeled, it is replaced with functional tissue, ultimately resulting in a strong repair at one year*

Material structure can impact host response.2 Consider these features of monofilament versus multifilament structures:

  • Monofilament mesh design allows for a prompt fibroblastic response through the open interstices of the mesh1
  • Material designs with complex architecture can have greater surface area and niches that bacteria can use as a haven from tissue ingrowth, neovascularization, antibiotic treatment, and host inflammatory response3
  • It has been reported that the surface area of multifilament material is 157% higher than monofilament materials3

Study objective: Evaluate material strength and histopathology of Phasix™ Mesh.

Study design: A 3-centimeter round defect was created in the ventral abdominal wall of 25 Yucatan mini-pigs (average weight 38 kg). Phasix™ Mesh was fixated directly over the defect with SorbaFix™ resorbable tacks. Ball burst testing and histopathology were conducted at 6, 12, 26, and 52 weeks.

Results: Early tissue ingrowth, vascular integration, and incorporation of Phasix™ Mesh into the ventral abdominal wall, plus abundant mature collagen formed around the remaining fibers at 52 weeks.
