Designed for Performance
Used in complex applications where biologics would be chosen, but without the associated tissue processing costs, GORE® BIO-A® Tissue Reinforcement offers proven performance at considerable economic value.
GORE® BIO-A® Tissue Reinforcement is an innovative technology for soft tissue reinforcement which has changed the surgical mesh landscape to include a new category, called Biosynthetics. This synthetically made product is designed to perform in complex procedures where biologics have been used; it is not human or animal tissue derived.
GORE® BIO-A® Tissue Reinforcement is the first 3D Biosynthetic mesh, so named for its construct of polymers, poly (glycolide: trimethylene carbonate) copolymer (PGA:TMC), which are completely absorbed over six to seven months, leaving no mesh material behind in the body.
GORE® BIO-A® Tissue Reinforcement was created with optimal porosity for rapid cellular infiltration and vascularization to generate quality tissue fast.
Repair with Confidence
What does it replace?
GORE® BIO-A® Tissue Reinforcement is designed for performance as suture line reinforcement in complex hernia cases where biologics have been used.
What kind of applications?
GORE® BIO-A® Tissue Reinforcement is intended for use in the reinforcement of soft tissue. Hospital surgical departments, including general surgery, trauma, and plastics find value in the technology and some common applications include:
- Paraesophageal / hiatal hernia repair
- Abdominal wall reconstruction
- Ventral / incisional hernia repair
