Overview

Superior Performance From Many Angles†,2

Older, non-articulating fixation devices present several challenges in laparoscopic ventral hernia repair. 

Accessing the mesh can be difficult, fixation strength can be less than ideal, and procedural costs can increase dramatically when more than one device is needed in a single procedure.1,2,3

ReliaTack™ articulating reloadable fixation device is revolutionizing hernia repair.

Articulate to 65 degrees to experience superior access and stronger fixation.1,2  Use cost effective reloads to lower the cost of care.3‡

Finally, experience the versatility of ReliaTack™ device. Choose between standard or deep purchase tacks to meet your unique patient and procedural needs.

Features

Articulation

Articulation delivers perpendicular tack deployment and minimizes mesh shift£,1,4

  • Consistent tack purchase when shaft is angled at 30˚, 45˚, 65˚ and 90˚ 2
  • Reduces mesh shift during tacking£,1
  • May eliminate contralateral ports£,1

Reloadable

Articulation and interchangeable deep purchase tack reloads may reduce cost of care.§,1,3

  •  Savings per case:
    • Up to $385 compared to SecureStrap ™* device 3
    • Up to $337 compared to SorbaFix™* device 3
  • May save up to $100 per case by potentially eliminating contralateral ports,5
  • Up to 60 firings eliminates the need for multiple fixation devices per case‡,6

Ergonomic Handle 

Low profile handle with perceptible click provides audible and tactile feedback to confirm that the tack has been successfully deployed.
