GORE® DUALMESH® PLUS Biomaterial is the first two-surface hernia repair material with antimicrobial technology for controlling potential operative contamination of the material. This advanced ePTFE biomaterial contains two antimicrobial preservative agents, silver carbonate and chlorhexidine diacetate, which act to inhibit microbial colonization on the device for up to 10 days post-implantation.
GORE® DUALMESH® PLUS Biomaterial is also available with holes. These macropores encourage faster tissue incorporation, while maintaining the benefits of GORE® DUALMESH® Biomaterial. It also offers all the performance advantages of Gore's standard DUALMESH® Biomaterial, such as rapid host tissue incorporation and minimal foreign-body response.
