THE SCIENCE OF OVITEX
A MORE NATURAL HERNIA REPAIR™
OviTex, a Reinforced Tissue Matrix, was designed in collaboration with surgeons and healthcare providers to address the unmet clinical and financial needs in hernia repair and abdominal wall reconstruction. Our solutions are comprised of polymer fiber interwoven through layers of biologic material in a “lockstitch” pattern, which creates a unique embroidered construction, offering a technology designed to surpass the performance of all existing hernia repair and abdominal wall reconstruction mesh products.
The biologic material in OviTex, derived from ovine rumen, serves as the natural building block and is optimized to reduce foreign body response, enable functional tissue remodeling and promote a more natural hernia repair. The interwoven polymer fibers provide additional reinforcement, along with improved handling and load-sharing capability to support natural abdominal wall function. The polymer fiber is available in resorbable or permanent variations and comprises less than 5% of the final product*.
OviTex Reinforced Tissue Matrix combines the benefits of biologic material and polymer reinforcement to provide a more natural hernia repair when compared to mesh products made only of synthetic polymer material.
