VENTRIO™ Hernia Patch

VENTRIO™ Hernia Patch
with SORBAFLEX™ Memory Technology

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.

These layers combine to form a positioning pocket and contains the unique SORBAFLEX™ Memory Technology. Together, they facilitate easy patch placement and positioning. The SORBAFLEX™ Memory Technology allows the patch to spring open and lie flat during placement. Then the positioning pocket allows for the use of mechanical fixation. SORBAFLEX™ Memory Technology is comprised of an extruded polydioxanone PDO monofilament. 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.

Benefits:

  • The SORBAFLEX™Memory Technology springs open, lays flat and maintains shape during placement, facilitating 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.†
  • The special pocket design was created for easy handling and positioning, allowing the use of mechanical fixation for increased efficiency.
  • Submicronic ePTFE side minimizes tissue attachment to the patch.
  • With complementing monofilament polypropylene and polydioxanone, VENTRIO™ combines three trusted materials used in general surgery for many years with success demonstrated by clinical outcomes.
