Overview

For Small Ventral Hernias in Open Surgery

The Parietex™ composite ventral patch is a mesh specifically designed for small ventral hernia repair. The shape, size and the specific fixation and deployment system have been designed for optimal abdominal wall conformability and easy deployment and fixation1,2.

In addition to these technical features, Parietex™ composite ventral patch has been designed to support tissue integration while minimizing tissue attachments with collagen1,2,3.

The Parietex™ composite ventral patch offers a complete range of 3 product sizes (diameter: 4.6, 6.6 and 8.6 cm).

Features

Designed for optimal abdominal wall conformability 1,2 

  • Mesh conforms to the abdominal cavity thanks to expander, positioning and fixation system (handles and peripheral fixation).
  • The peripheral fixation enables the mesh to conform to the abdominal wall during the tissue integration process.
  • The rigid and absorbable expanders enable the mesh to flatten against the abdominal wall.

Provides easy deployment and fixation system 1,2

  • Pulling on the handles will help user to position the mesh in the center of the defect.
  • Colored textile of the fixation system enhances visibility during procedure.
  • The innovative fixation system based on the 4 semi-peripheral points provides a balanced fixation on healthy tissue away from the center of the defect.

Supports tissue integration while minimizing visceral attachment with collagen film 1,2,3

  • 3D monofilament polyester textile with large pores (1.5mm x 1.8 mm) for consistent tissue integration.
  • Hydrophilic absorbable collagen film to minimize tissue attachment.
