Surgical/Hernia Mesh & Fixation Products.

Adhesion Resistant Surgical Mesh

Sepramesh[TM] Biosurgical Composite is comprised of polypropylene mesh coated with adhesion preventing materials, modified sodium hyaluronate (HA) and carboxymethylcellulose (CMC). The coated side of Sepramesh remains in place for up to seven days, separating the mesh from abdominal viscera while an adhesion-resistant mesothelial cell layer develops over the peritoneal side of the prosthesis. The composite design encourages complete tissue ingrowth of the polypropylene mesh with the abdominal wall.

Parietal Implants

Designed to reinforce the patient's abdominal wall, the parietal implant is of particular use in the surgical repair of inguinal and incisional hernias, and in cases of prolapse. The Parietex[R], Parietex Composite, and Parietene[R] product lines offer implants made of multi-filament polymere with a biological coating designed to improve both hydrophilicity and biocompafibility. These implants offer optimum tissual integration within the body and a knitting technique that structures their texture to ensure the porosity essential to rapid tissual growth.
