Cook Medical is releasing its new hernia repair graft made out of the company’s proprietary Biodesign™ material that’s strong and resistant to infection.
From a press release obtained by Medgadget:
Cook’s Biodesign product line establishes a new category in tissue repair that combines the best attributes of synthetic mesh and biologic grafts while reducing disadvantages of those materials including erosion and infection. Based on the breakthrough technology that has made the original Surgisis material from Cook an advanced tissue repair solution, the newly enhanced Biodesign base material now offers surgeons better handling characteristics, long-term strength and faster tissue remodelling, thereby delivering better surgical outcomes
and an improved quality of life for patients.
Using this technology, Cook is introducing the Biodesign™ Hernia Graft, designed to meet the challenges of complex hernias.
Suited for use in contaminated surgical fields, Cook’s enhanced Biodesign Hernia Graft is quilted for reliable handling and perforated to ensure adequate drainage. Serving as a full-strength scaffold, the graft signals surrounding tissue to promote rapid and complete remodelling that, over time, becomes strong, vascularized tissue.
