The AbsorbaTack™ fixation device, designed for patient comfort, surgeon confidence, and peace of mind, provides strong, temporary mesh fixation while leaving no foreign material in the body over time. It requires no sharp piloting needle to deploy, eliminating the risk of inadvertent needle sticks in the OR due to the fixation device.
The NEW AbsorbaTack™ (ABSTACK30X) fixation device for laparoscopic hernia repair continues to deploy tacks when the shaft is flexed over 3 cm. A short version (ABSTACK20S) is available for open hernia repair.
