Ventralight™ ST Mesh is an uncoated lightweight monofilament polypropylene mesh on the anterior side with an absorbable hydrogel barrier based on Sepra® Technology on the posterior side for laparoscopic ventral hernia repair.

Efficient:

  • Low profile design facilitates trocar deployment and mechanical fixation.
  • Multiple shapes (circle, oval, ellipse, rectangle) and sizes ranging from a 4.5" (11.4 cm) circle to 12" x 14" (30.5 cm x 35.6 cm) rectangle.
  • Easily cut to customize shape and size. The unique hydrogel barrier covers the edge of the mesh even after trimming.

Effective:

Minimal contraction shown in preclinical testing compared to a leading macroporous absorbable barrier mesh

At 4 weeks, Ventralight™ ST Mesh demonstrated 42% less area mesh contracture than a competitive macroporous absorbable barrier mesh. Results were statistically significant.*

* Preclinical data on f le at C. R. Bard. Results may not correlate to performance in humans.
Strong Tissue Incorporation
The open pore design of the uncoated monofilament polypropylene in Ventralight™ ST Mesh allows for:
  • Fast tissue ingrowth
  • Strong tissue incorporation into the abdominal wall
  • A strong repair long-term repair

Proven:

Ventralight™ Absorbable Barrier based on Sepra® Technology
  • Sepra® Technology has over 15 years of proven clinical success
  • Sepra® Technology is the basis for Genzyme Seprafilm® and the bioresorbable coating on Sepramesh™ IP Composite and Ventralight™ ST Mesh.
  • The unique swelling feature of the hydrogel barrier helps minimize tissue attachment to the mesh.
  • The hydrogel barrier resorbs within 30 days providing visceral protection during the critical healing period.*

* Preclinical data on file at C. R. Bard. Results may not correlate to performance in humans.  
** Based on a preclinical study of a composite polypropylene/ePTFE hernia repair mesh.

INDICATIONS
Ventralight™ ST Mesh is indicated for use in the reconstruction of soft tissue deficiencies, such as for the repair of hernias.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

  1. Do not use the Ventralight™ ST in infants or children whereby future growth will be compromised by use of such material.
  2. Do not use Ventralight™ ST Mesh for the reconstruction of cardiovascular defects.
  3. Literature reports there may be a possibility for adhesion formation when the polypropylene is placed in direct contact with the bowel or viscera.


WARNINGS

  1. Ensure proper orientation; the coated side of the prosthesis should be oriented against the bowel or sensitive organs. Do not place the polypropylene side against the bowel. There may be a possibility for adhesion formation when the polypropylene side is placed in direct contact with the bowel or viscera.
  2. If an infection develops, treat the infection aggressively. Consideration should be given regarding the need to remove the prosthesis. An unresolved infection may require removal of the prosthesis. Possible complications include seroma, adhesions, hematomas, inflammation, extrusion, fistula formation and recurrence of the hernia or soft tissue defect.


ADVERSE REACTIONS
Possible complications include seroma, adhesions, hematomas, inflammation, extrusion, fistula formation, infection, allergic reaction, and recurrence of the hernia or soft tissue defect.

Please consult package insert for more detailed safety information and instructions for use.
