Smart design. Smart handling. Smart repair.

Symbotex™ composite mesh is our latest mesh designed for laparoscopic and open ventral repair. Symbotex™ mesh brings improved ease of use as well as optimal repair performance for your patients, with excellent tissue integration and minimized visceral attachments.

Symbotex™ mesh is available in a large variety of shapes and sizes for laparoscopic hernia repair, with specific subranges dedicated to laparoscopic and open surgery.


Smart Design: Innovative mesh features for streamlined performance

  • Established bioabsorbable film technology with impressive resistance to surgical handling1,2
  • Comprehensive shape and size portfolio for small, medium, and large defects1,3

Smart Handling: Experience simplicity in hernia repair

  • Designed for easy mesh deployment1
  • Abdominal wall clinging effect for simplified mesh placement4,5,6

Smart Repair: Designed to offer patients optimal hernia repair performance

  • Good level of neoperitonization and better minimizing tissue attachment compared to Physiomesh™* flexible composite mesh and Ventralight™* ST mesh7,8
  • Helping to meet physiological needs through balanced mesh mechanical properties9
