OviTex Reinforced Tissue Matrix

 

OviTex Reinforced Tissue Matrix (RTM) is a next generation soft tissue repair platform that utilizes layers of ovine (sheep) rumen interwoven with just enough polymer suture for added strength. This combination results in a very low polymer load (areal density) that is less than lightweight mesh5. By having a low polymer load, OviTex effectively reduces the amount of plastic placed in the body.1*

All OviTex RTM devices are designed to leverage a patient’s natural healing response, facilitate tissue remodeling, optimize strength, and minimize the foreign body footprint of synthetic polymer.

Indications for Use

OviTex is intended for use as a surgical mesh to reinforce and/or repair soft tissue where weakness exists.

Indications for use include the repair of hernias and/or abdominal wall defects that require the use of reinforcing or bridging material to obtain the desired surgical outcomes.

For important safety information, refer to the IFU.

Benefits of OviTex RTM

Strong & More Natural Construct

Strong construct provides support across the fascia while also providing a matrix that encourages rapid granulation leading to tissue remodeling.* The high tensile strength with low elastin content minimizes stretching (matching compliance of the abdominal wall) and makes OviTex effective for placement under tension.5

Rapid Integration And Remodeling

Pores allow for fluid transfer (permeability); the embroidered construction creates hundreds of pores to the already highly porous ECM, allowing for fluid transfer through the device.5 High rates of permeability and fluid transfer complement the use of negative pressure wound therapy.

Just Enough Reinforcement Material

The low amount of interwoven polymer holds the biologic layers together providing additional reinforcement and strength, structure and improved handling.5

Assists In Complex Environments

OviTex retains its integrity and has shown resilience in cases of complex surgical repairs. The use of OviTex RTM assists in delivering an effective and durable fascial repair.6, 7

Four Configurations. From Open to Robotic,
The Right Solution At The Right Time.

Our comprehensive portfolio of solutions offers four configurations of OviTex specifically designed for hernia repair and abdominal wall reconstruction applications. Each device has its own unique features to ensure you have the right solution at the right time.

OviTex Core

4-layer device
No smooth sides
Thickness: ~0.9 mm

OviTex Core is designed to reinforce primary hernia repairs where the device
will not come into contact
with viscera.

OviTex 1S

6-layer device
1 smooth side
Thickness: ~1.1 mm

OviTex 1S incorporates a smooth side that is designed to minimize tissue attachment
and to reinforce primary hernia repairs where the device may come into contact with viscera (e.g. intraperitoneal).

OviTex 2S

8-layer device
2 smooth sides
Thickness: ~1.6 mm

OviTex 2S incorporates eight layers of tissue for added strength. The two smooth sides make it suitable for intraperitoneal placement.

OviTex LPR*

4-layer device
1 smooth side
Thickness: ~0.9 mm

OviTex LPR is designed specifically for use in laparoscopic and robotic hernia repair procedures. The design also incorporates a smooth side making it suitable for intraperitoneal placement.
