SURGIMESH® XB is partially impregnated with elastomeric silicone to produce a permanent tissue attachment barrier without interrupting the strong healing characteristics of the base non-woven microfiber structure.
Non-Woven Matrix Polypropylene
SURGIMESH® products are made from polypropylene, the most preferred biomaterial in hernia repair, in a completely new form - a Non-Woven Matrix - producing materials that are extremely soft, flexible, strong (meets or exceeds FDA reviewed mesh strength levels), easy to use and self forming to the surgical site.
The structure of SURGIMESH® devices, being composed of individual fibers of polypropylene which are 5 to 10 times smaller than other woven and knitted hernia mesh constructions, creates an ideal interconnecting pore structure which has been shown to be completely incorporated by 12 days post-operatively.
Both SURGIMESH® WN & XB Hernia Mesh demonstrate complete tissue integration within weeks post-operatively that is primarily fibroblastic in nature with supportive vascularization throughout the material to yield a strong but flexible healed repair site long term.
Owing to its non-woven structure and microfiber composition SURGIMESH® devices remain flat and unwrinkled in hernia repair sites demonstrating very low levels of shrinkage and pain post-operatively.
