Smart Design. Not Sharp Design.

The unique fastener design of the PermaFix™ Permanent Fixation system means no sharp points are left behind in the patient. Preclinical data show that a hollow core allows tissue ingrowth through the fastener.1 The 5 mm depth of tissue purchase and consistent thread diameter from head to tip assure optimal tissue engagement during open and laparoscopic procedures. The PermaFix™ Permanent Fixation System has a 5 mm, low-profile delivery system that offers smooth, efficient deployment. Keeping track of thepre-loaded 15- or 30-fastener configurations is easy with an easy-to-see fastener gauge.


Preclinical testing suggests:

  • Repair strength approximately 7x greater than maximum Intraabdominal Pressure (IAP)1, 2
  • Threaded, hollow core allows for tissue in-growth through interior of fastener2


  • Atraumatic blunt tip fastener with smooth head and no exposed points
  • Innovative mechanical design enables a durable delivery system
  • Molded polymer-based material similar to other implant devices
  • Material not radiopaque


  • The consistent diameter of the threads from head to tip and fastener length are designed to maximize tissue engagement
  • Obturator with piloting tip accurately pilots fastener through mesh and tissue
