Nicast out of Lod, Israel, developers of fine electrospun polymer “nanofabric”, will be introducing the company’s new NovaMesh™ Ventral Hernia Mesh at Medica 2008 conference in Germany next week. We have profiled Nicast’s proprietary poly-urethane nanometric scale fiber scaffolding twice before (see flashbacks at the end of this post).
From the product page:
The NovaMesh Ventral Hernia Mesh features improved resistance to tissue adhesion on the visceral-facing surface, and promotes excellent tissue ingrowth on the fascial surface. The NovaMesh is the first hernia mesh to exploit the unique properties of electrospun nanofabric.
Improved resistance to tissue adhesion on the visceral-facing surface Excellent tissue ingrowth on the fascial surface Near-perfect flatness, no creasing or kinking following tight rolling and unrolling Biomimetic electrospun nanofabric Easy handling and laparoscopic insertion – all sizes can fit through a trocar No shrinkage
