Ventral Hernia Repair

Spausdinti -


Specifically designed to meet the meticulous challenges of laparoscopic ventral hernia repair

Made with lightweight, low profile polypropylene Bard® Soft Mesh that is approximately 60% lighter than traditional polypropylene mesh.

  • Lightweight, large pore polypropylene matrix leaves less foreign body mass than traditional polypropylene mesh.
  • Easier handling and laparoscopic insertion - all sizes can fit through a trocar.
  • Optional Introducer Tool, which is packaged with larger sizes, makes insertion even easier.
  • Two distinctly different sides: polypropylene Bard® Soft Mesh on one side to promote tissue ingrowth and sub-micronic ePTFE on the other side to minimize tissue attachment to the prosthesis.



Polypropylene/ePTFE composite for laparoscopic repair of ventral and incisional hernias


  • Two distinctly different sides: Polypropylene Bard® Mesh on one side to promote tissue ingrowth and sub-micronic ePTFE on the other side to minimize adhesions to the prosthesis.
  • Elliptically shaped design: Reduces the need to trim the mesh, saving time.
  • Low Profile: Makes it ideally suited for laparoscopic ventral hernia repairs.
  • Sealed Edge: Prevents exposure of the polypropylene mesh side from contact with the bowel, thus potentially reducing the chances of adhesions around the edge of the prosthesis.

The VENTRALEXTM Hernia Patch is a self-expanding polypropylene and ePTFE patch that can be used to repair small ventral defects such as umbilical hernias and trocar site deficiencies.

The device allows for an intraabdominal, tension-free repair.Tissue ingrowth into the polypropylene mesh side and deep placement of the prosthetic allows for a strong repair and reduced chance of recurrence. This technique is designed to eliminate lateral dissection required for preperitoneal placement, which may help to minimize post-op pain.

Since 2002, over a half a million patches worldwide and published clinical results add up to proven reliability.


Easy: Technique and Placement
•Simple tension-free intraabdominal repair.
•Minimum dissection and fixation required.
•Monofilament polypropylene mesh encourages tissue ingrowth and incorporation into the abdominal wall.


Efficient: Positioning Pocket and Strap

•Pocket and strap facilitates placement, positioning and fixation.
•Memory technology allows the patch to "spring open," lay flat and maintain shape.
•Three sizes available for coverage of larger defects to smaller trocar site closures.


Proven: Materials and Clinical Data

•Monofilament polypropylene mesh provides fast tissue ingrowth leading to a strong repair.
•ePTFE layer, with submicronic porosity, on the visceral side of the patch provides a permanent barrier and minimizes tissue attachment.
•Six years of market experience supported by peer-reviewed published clinical studies.
