Optimized Design for Open Ventral Hernia Repair

The OptiFix™ Open Absorbable Fixation System was designed for improved ease of use when fixating surgical meshes to the abdominal wall in open ventral hernia procedures by reducing limitations that exist with current laparoscopic straight devices. Combined with Ventrio™ ST, it provides a full system for open ventral hernia repair.

Outcome Driven Fixation

The OptiFix™ Open Absorbable Fastener is made from Poly(D, L-Lactide) and is designed for optimal performance. Fastener features include:

Smooth Fastener Head

  • Minimizes the potential for tissue attachment1
  • Ensures mesh is securely fixated

Hollow Core Design

  • Allows tissue ingrowth through the fastener1

Angled Tip

  • Easily penetrates mesh and tissue1


  • Enhances tissue holding strength
  • Prevents the fastener from backing out
