A fully-resorbable knitted mesh designed to address the limitations of existing soft tissue support products in reconstructive and aesthetic surgery.
Clinically-trusted, predictable material
DuraSorb is made with polydioxanone, which has been used in surgery for over 35 years.
This familiar monofilament provides predictable absorption with distinct benefits:
- Decreased surface area that reduces bacterial adhesion3,4
- Available at a fraction of the price of biologic materials
A unique user experience
DuraSorb is a bioabsorbable knitted mesh that can be cut, tailored, and draped by the surgeon like autologous tissue, featuring a unique ease of use during surgery5.
Developed with wound healing in mind
DuraSorb hydrolyzes and absorbs parallel to the tissue’s natural strength recovery and provides support during the healing process.
Possible adverse reactions with the mesh are those typically associated with any implantable prosthesis, including, but not limited to, infection, inflammation, extrusion, erosion, adhesion, fistula formation, seroma formation, hematoma, and recurrence of the hernia or tissue defect. DuraSorb® has not been studied for use in the repair of direct inguinal hernias, intraperitoneal use, contaminated and/or infected wounds, or breast reconstructive surgeries. Consult the specific DuraSorb® Instructions for Use for complete prescribing information, including its indications for use, warnings and precautions.
