GORE-TEX® Soft Tissue Patch
The GORE-TEX® Soft Tissue Patch is a specialty biomaterial designed to meet the needs of the most demanding soft tissue repairs with minimal complications.
Many surgeons depend on the GORE-TEX® Soft Tissue Patch for clinical advantages that include:
- Smart design: Made from a microporous sheet material that offers greater suture retention strength while allowing for host tissue incorporation.
- Inert material: Special microporous biomaterial features solid nodes and thin fibrils of expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) to minimize foreign body response.
- Easy handling: Pre-configured patches require little or no trimming before implantation but they can easily be cut and shaped to size without fraying.
The GORE-TEX® Soft Tissue Patch is a biomaterial that is specially designed to meet the unique challenges of complex soft tissue procedures like laparoscopic hernia repair, inguinal herniorrhaphy and even temporary bridging of fascial defects.
Contraindication: This product is contraindicated for the reconstruction of cardiovascular, orthopedic and passive biological membrane (i.e., dura mater, pericardium and peritoneum) defects.
