Mesh composition

Dextile™ anatomical mesh is made from nonabsorbable monofilament polypropylene textile.2-4 It has an exclusive structure that keeps its shape after trocar passage. That design makes intraoperative mesh handling easy and inguinal hernia repair efficient.1,3,5

This includes:

  • Textile knit pattern which is soft, yet rigid([FOOTNOTE=Based on internal report #43008CR337, Support for marketing claims related to bending and density of Dextile™ anatomical mesh vs. competitors. August 2019.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])
  • Thermoformed 3-D shape with distinct sealed edges3,4
  • Large pore size for transparency([FOOTNOTE=Based on internal report #43008CR315, Dextile™ anatomical mesh vs 3DMax™* light mesh: mesh physical and mechanical comparison, 510(k).
