Bard® 3DMax™ Mesh was developed based on careful and precise anatomical research of the inguinal canal. The three-dimensional, anatomically curved shape, sealed edge and medial orientation marker allow for easier positioning than a conventional flat mesh and also enhance the speed and simplicity of placement.1

Key Benefits:

Anatomically Designed
Fully contoured mesh designed to conform to the inguinal anatomy.

Easy Positioning
Sealed edge and medial orientation marker are designed to ensure an anatomically correct fit and less wrinkling than conventional flat mesh.

Fixation-Free Repair
Eliminates need for fixation, which saves time and money.

Reduced Patient Pain
Patients who received Bard® 3DMax™ Mesh without fixation used significantly less narcotic analgesia in the immediate postoperative period than those in whom flat mesh was fixated.2

Bard® 3DMax™ mesh is indicated to reinforce soft tissue where weakness exists, e.g., for repair of hernia and chest wall defects.


  1. Literature reports that there may be a possibility for adhesion formation when Bard® 3DMax™ mesh is placed in direct contact with the bowel or viscera.
  2. Do not use Bard® 3DMax™ mesh in infants and children, whereby future growth will be compromised by use of such material.


  1. The use of any permanent mesh or patch in a contaminated or infected wound could lead to fistula formation and/or extrusion of the prosthesis.
  2. If an infection develops, treat the infection aggressively. Consideration should be given regarding the need to remove the mesh. An unresolved infection may require removal of the device.


  1. Do not cut or reshape the Bard® 3DMax™mesh as this may affect its effectiveness.
  2. If fixation is used, care should be taken to ensure that the mesh is adequately fixated to the abdominal wall. If necessary, additional fasteners and/or sutures should be used.
  3. If sutures are used to secure the mesh in place, nonabsorbable monofilament sutures are recommended.

Adverse Reactions
Possible complications include seromas, adhesions, hematomas, inflammation, extrusion, fistula formation and recurrence of the hernia or soft tissue defect.
