Surgical Meshes

Meshes have become standard for repair of abdominal wall hernias. Surgical mesh is a sterile woven material designed for permanently implantation within the body during open or laparoscopic procedures.

A wide range of mesh implants are available, with two main functions: to stabilise and strengthen soft tissue defects, and to act as a sling to support prolapsed organs and viscera.

In tissue repair applications, the mesh serves to mechanically strengthen the weakened area whilst simultaneously promoting long-term stability by acting as a scaffold for new tissue growth. It is most commonly used in pelvic organ prolapse, urinary stress incontinence and hernia repairs.

 
 

Capromesh Meshes
Partially absorbable

The sterile partially absorbable composite mesh is made from two components: an absorbable and non-absorbable.

Capromesh composed of an absorbable segmented copolymer of glycolide and ε-caprolactone and non-absorbable polypropylene monofilament fiber. After absorption of the absorbable part, only the polypropylene mesh remains in the body.

The structure and the size of this remaining mesh are optimally designed for the physiological stress, which the abdominal wall is subject to.

Indication:

 

Capromesh is indicated in the operative treatment of fascial defects, in particular hernias, weakened abdominal wall, healing of which required long-term bridging or strengthening the damaged structures.

 
 

Chiralen Meshes
Non-absorbable

Sterile surgical undyed meshes from polypropylene. Chiralen meshes are available in different sizes.
They show high strength and a high flexibility.

Chiralen meshes are available in a weight of
app. 125 g/m2 or in the version with a weight of
app. 55 g/m2.

Indication:

 

Chiralen meshes are indicated in the operative treatment of fascial defects, in particular hernias that require long-term bridging of damaged structures.
