The Ventrio™ ST Hernia Patch is an uncoated monofilament polypropylene mesh with SorbaFlex™ Memory Technology and an absorbable barrier based on Sepra® Technology.

Easy:

  • Provides the benefits of a laparoscopic repair through the ease of a smaller incision.
  • SorbaFlex™ Memory Technology allows the patch to “spring open,” lay flat to maintain shape and then fully absorbs over time.*
  • Simplifies placement and positioning of the patch throughout the ventral hernia repair.

Efficient:

  • Unique pocket aids in the proper placement and positioning of the patch.
  • Designed to facilitate the use of mechanical fixation devices and/or sutures.
  • Available in a variety of shapes and sizes to accommodate defect sizes and locations.

The Ventrio™ ST Hernia Patch is compatible in both open and laparoscopic ventral procedures with the SorbaFix™ Absorbable Fixation System and the PermaFix™ Permanent Fixation System.

Proven:

  • Hydrogel barrier is based on Sepra® Technology.
  • Uncoated monofilament polypropylene mesh allows for complete tissue ingrowth leading to a strong repair.
  • Materials have been used in general surgery for years with demonstrated clinical success.1

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

CONTRAINDICATIONS
Do not use the Ventrio™ ST Hernia Patch in infants or children, whereby future growth will be compromised by the use of such mesh material. Do not use the Ventrio™ ST Hernia Patch for the reconstruction of cardiovascular defects. Literature reports that there may be a possibility for adhesion
formation when the polypropylene is placed in contact with the bowel or viscera.

WARNINGS
Do not cut or reshape the Ventrio™ ST Hernia Patch, as this could impact its effectiveness. Care should be taken not to cut or nick the SorbaFlex™ PDO monofilament during insertion or fixation. If the SorbaFlex™ PDO monofilament is cut or damaged, additional complications may include bowel or skin perforation and infection. Follow proper folding techniques for all patches as described in these Instructions for Use as other folding techniques may compromise the SorbaFlex™ PDO monofilament. 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 bea possibility for adhesion formation when the mesh is placed in direct contact with the bowel or viscera.

ADVERSE REACTIONS
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.
