We offer a truly comprehensive hernia repair portfolio with product options spanning mesh, fixation, dissection, and biologics. You can create the complete mix of products to meet your procedural and economic needs.
The aim of any design of modern textile structures is the reduction of inflammation and fibrosis, favoring integration into local tissues with the least distrubance.2
Tissue incorporation is the goal and depends on the material, density, three-dimensional construction, filament type, pore size, compliance and electric charge.1
It is extremely important to understand the full range of physiomechanical properties of mesh materials, particularly the extend to which these properties affect the body's response to the implanted material. 1,3
Explore now the key parameters driving mesh performance.
Our meshes benefit from these essential qualities.
