Accuracy Matters

Covidien’s new AccuMesh™ positioning system with its expandable frame and precise articulation control is an innovative mesh positioning system that facilitates insertion, deployment, and placement of Parietex™ Optimized Composite (PCOx) mesh.1 As a result, AccuMesh™ positioning system delivers superior accuracy and faster operative time compared to traditional laparoscopic ventral hernia repair methods.2*

AccuMesh™ Positioning System Features

The success of a laparoscopic ventral repair is largely dependent on achieving a consistent 3–5 cm overlap between the edge of the mesh and the edge of the defect.1 With current techniques, accurately positioning the mesh is the most difficult mesh-related step of the procedure.1

Covidien’s new AccuMesh™ positioning system offers:

  • Superior Accuracy: Statistically significant improvement in accuracy of mesh placement*,2
  • Significant Time Savings: Statistically significant reduction in mesh related OR time by more than 40%*,2
  • Ease of Use: Easy to attach, roll, insert, deploy, position, and fixate the mesh3
