Sepramesh™ IP Composite

Unique hydrogel barrier, based on the Sepra® Technology, swells to minimize tissue attachment to the visceral side of the mesh and resorbs within 30 days providing visceral protection during the critical healing process.3

SorbaFlex™ Memory Technology

Polydioxanone (PDO) monofilament is unique in its flexibility and tensile strength, facilitating patch insertion and placement. Preclinical testing has demonstrated that absorption via hydrolysis is essentially complete in 6-8 months.4

Unique Pocket and Strap Design

Pocket and strap facilitate placement, positioning and lateral fixation. SorbaFlex™ Memory Technology is contained within a knitted polypropylene mesh tube.





Minimum dissection, fixation required.


Proprietary pocket and strap design facilitates placement, positioning and lateral fixation.


Clinically supported technique since 2002 with over 800,000 implants worldwide and peer-reviewed published clinical studies.
