Date:10/4/2010

SOMERVILLE, N.J., Oct. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Ethicon, Inc., a worldwide leader in surgical care, today announced the launch of ETHICON SECURESTRAP™ 5mm Absorbable Strap Fixation Device, the first fixation device to feature an absorbable "strap" design, and ETHICON PHYSIOMESH™ Flexible Composite Mesh. These two new surgical devices provide secure mesh fixation and address patient comfort and surgeon ease-of-use in laparoscopic (minimally invasive) hernia repair procedures – the sixth most common outpatient surgery in the US.
