Biodesign Hernia Graft

Hernia graft

The Biodesign® Hernia Graft is a non cross-linked, non-dermis biologic graft that is completely remodelled into strong, vascularised patient tissue.

The Biodesign Hernia Graft is used for implantation to reinforce soft tissue where weakness exists during ventral hernia repair.

FEATURES

Product Benefits

What is Biodesign?

Biodesign Advanced Tissue Repair products are sourced from porcine small intestinal submucosa (SIS). The material acts as a scaffold that, once implanted, allows host cells to infiltrate and remodel into vascularised tissue1-3. SIS supports one of the harshest environments in the body and rapid cell turnover4.

Strength Studies have shown long-term strength as the Biodesign Hernia Graft remodels3. Not only is the graft strong at the time of implant, it is designed to exceed the strength of the normal abdominal wall during the time it is being integrated into the patient’s body. When tissue repair and remodelling have been completed, the resulting tissue is stronger than that which was implanted. This occurs because Biodesign is an inductive scaffold – meaning that it is rapidly infiltrated by patient cells that reinforce the abdominal wall through the secretion of their own collagen3.

Remodelling

Once implanted in the body, the Biodesign source material helps the patient’s own cells infiltrate the scaffold and remodel the material into natural patient tissue.

Biodesign becomes remodelled by the body over a period of several weeks – letting the body’s own defence mechanisms fight infection naturally.

Clinical Evidence

The technology behind Biodesign Tissue Repair products has been studied and proven with over 20 years clinical use and safety profile. It is supported by more than 1600 published articles. More than 600 of those describe use in humans, and 35 are RCTs, as of July 2020.

The Biodesign Hernia Graft is intended for implantation to reinforce soft tissues where weaknesses exist during ventral hernia repair.
