Two Distinct Layers
to Support Your Technique.
And Patient Outcomes.


  • Flexibility for enhanced anatomical conformability1,3
  • Macroporous textile allows for good tissue integration1,([FOOTNOTE=Weyhe D, Cobb W, Lecuivre J, et al.

  • Superior onlay porosity designed for ease of positioning1-3


  • Designed for balance between softness and rigidity to allow for good conformability to the patient’s anatomy3 ,†
  • Flexible enough for good intraoperative handling and sufficiently rigid for easy deployment in the preperitoneal space3,†
  • Covers the myopectineal orifice([FOOTNOTE=Awad, S, Fagan S. Current approaches to inguinal hernia repair. Am J Surg. 2004;188(6):9–16.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=]),([FOOTNOTE=Badkur M, Garg N.
