Overview

Superior performance from many angles([FOOTNOTE=Based on internal test report #RE00010135-1, ReliaTack™ device deep purchase tack shear pull test performed in synthetic foam.

You want every advantage when it comes to laparoscopic ventral hernia repair:

  • Superior access([FOOTNOTE=Based on test report #2165-055-1, Mesh overlap claims testing, p-value=0.007. March 2014.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])
  • Stronger fixation1,†
  • Lower cost of care([FOOTNOTE=Based on ReliaTack™ device deep purchase tack cost comparison, ReliaTack™ device deep purchase internal average cost data compared to SECURESTRAP™* and SorbaFix™* fixation devices, IMS data.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])

That’s why we’ve designed our ReliaTack™ articulating reloadable fixation device to give you all three.

With the ReliaTack™ device, you can choose from standard or deep purchase tacks to meet your unique patient and procedural needs. Plus, to enhance your procedural flow, we’ve added two new features:

  • A single-turn knob for easier articulationΩ
  • An optimized shipping wedge for intuitive loadingΩ

It’s all part of our commitment to helping you improve patient outcomes with cost-effective solutions from our complete hernia repair portfolio.

Features

Articulation

Articulation delivers perpendicular tack deployment and minimizes mesh shift.2,([FOOTNOTE=Based on internal engineering report #R2165-050, Design verification: articulation angle. March 2014.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])Benefits of articulation include:

  • Consistent tack purchase when fired at 30, 45, 65, and 90 degrees1
  • Reduces mesh shift during tacking1,£
  • May eliminate contralateral ports1,£

Reloadable

Articulation and interchangeable deep purchase tack reloads may reduce cost of care.1,3,§ That can translate to a per case savings of:

  • Up to $385 compared to SECURESTRAP™* device3
  • Up to $337 compared to SorbaFix™* device3

Other potential cost benefits include:

  • Savings of up to $100 per case by potentially eliminating contralateral ports([FOOTNOTE=Based on average selling price analysis evaluating average trocar cost, IMS data. March 2014.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])
  • The ability to fire up to 60 times to eliminate the need for multiple fixation devices per case([FOOTNOTE=Based on internal report #2165-037-0, Engineering development of reliability testing. March 2014.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=]),‡

Ergonomic handle

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

New enhancements

  • A single-turn knob for easier articulationΩ
  • An optimized shipping wedge for intuitive loadingΩ

Technology

A revolution in hernia repair

The ReliaTack™ device delivers superior access,2,£ stronger fixation,1,† and lower cost of care.3,§

Superior access2,£

Through articulation, the ReliaTack™ device delivers perpendicular tack deployment and minimizes mesh shift.2,4,£ That results in:

  • Consistent tack purchase when fired at 30, 45, 65, and 90 degrees1,†
  • Reduced mesh shift during tacking1,£
  • The potential to eliminate contralateral ports1,£

Stronger fixation1,†

Articulation and screw-like tacks deliver superior fixation strength compared to both absorbable and permanent fixation devices. When the shaft is angled at 30, 45, 65, and 90 degrees,1,† the ReliaTack™ device with deep purchase tacks is:

  • 3.3x stronger than SECURESTRAP™* device
  • 1.9x stronger than SorbaFix™* device
  • 1.5x stronger than ProTack™ device
  • 3.9x stronger than OptiFix™* device
  • 1.6x stronger than the ReliaTack™ device† with standard purchase tacks
  • 1.7x stronger than CapSure™* device
  • 1.5x stronger than ProTack™ device

Lower cost of care3,§

The ability to fire up to 60 times can eliminate the need for multiple fixation devices per case.6,‡ And that can save up to $461 per case compared to the SECURESTRAP™* and SorbaFix™* devices.3,5,††,‡‡
