The Ventrio™ Hernia Patch’s unique design and technique offer patients the benefits of an intraabdominal repair, while offering surgeons the ease of an open anterior approach, with the added ability to use mechanical fixation. The parietal side is constructed of two layers of monofilament polypropylene mesh, providing rapid tissue ingrowth and strong incorporation into the abdominal wall. The visceral side is made of submicronic ePTFE, which provides a permanent barrier minimizing tissue attachment.


  • Springs open, lays flat and maintains shape.
  • Facilitates easy placement and positioning throughout the ventral repair.
  • Absorption of the PDO monofilament occurs in vivo by means of hydrolysis and is essentially complete in 6–8 months, leaving less implant material behind.††


  • Easy handling and positioning.
  • Allows the use of mechanical fixation for increased efficiency.   
  • Monofilament polypropylene mesh provides fast tissue ingrowth and incorporation, eliminating the need for permanent transfixation sutures.

The Ventrio™ Hernia Patch is compatible in both Open and Laparoscopic Ventral procedures with the SorbaFix™ Absorbable Fixation System and the PermaFix™ Permanent Fixation System.


  • Submicronic ePTFE side minimizes tissue attachment to the patch.
  • ePTFE is complemented by monofilament polypropylene and polydioxanone.   
  • Used in general surgery for many years with success demonstrated by clinical outcomes.

Strength in repair via Monofilament Polypropylene Mesh
With over 40 years of proven results in hernia repair, monofilament polypropylene delivers fast fibrotic response, resulting in strong tissue incorporation into the abdominal wall, which provides a strong repair long-term, minimizing recurrences.

The Ventrio™  Hernia Patch is indicated for use in the reconstruction of soft tissue deficiencies, such as for the repair of hernias.

Literature reports that there may be a possibility for adhesion formation when the polypropylene is placed in contact with the bowel or viscera.


  1. Do not cut or reshape the Ventrio™ Hernia Patch, as this could affect its effectiveness. Care should be taken not to cut or nick the SorbaFlex™ PDO monofilament. If the SorbaFlex™ PDO monofilament is cut or damaged during insertion or fixation, additional complications may include bowel or skin perforation and infection.
  2. Follow proper folding techniques for all patches as described in these Instructions for Use as other folding techniques may compromise the SorbaFlex™ PDO monofilament.  
  3. Ensure proper orientation; the bioresorbable coated side of the prosthesis should be oriented against the bowel or sensitive organs.  Do not place the polypropylene mesh side against the bowel.  There may be a possibility for adhesion formation when the mesh is placed in direct contact with the bowel or viscera.      

Possible complications include seroma, adhesions, hematomas, inflammation, extrusion, fistula formation, infection, allergic reaction, and recurrence of the hernia or soft tissue defect. If the SorbaFlex™ PDO monofilament is cut or damaged during insertion or fixation, additional complications may include bowel or skin perforation and infection.

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