This app shows how the mesh product is deployed within the body. It goes over how to fold the different types of meshes, inset, and deploy it. The cross-section highlights the union between the microgrips and muscle fibers. On top of the mesh, is a collagen film, which starts resorbing in as little as 24 hours, and finishes within a week. As the mesh is placed, the microgrips provide immediate fixation with muscle tissue. The mesh conforms to the anatomy and fixates over the entire surface without additional tacks. The macro-porous mesh promotes tissue integration and strengthens the area where hernias have occurred. This app targets salespeople as well as surgeons.
