To address this gap in available technologies for hernia prevention, a novel implantable device, Duramesh Suturable Mesh, has been purposely designed to provide the durability of a planar mesh repair, with less foreign material and easier placement. It is designed to limit acute and chronic suture pull-through and resulting gap formation, which is believed to be the root cause of surgical failures across multiple surgical specialties.
