For patients, it’s not “just a hernia”

GORE® SYNECOR Biomaterials are innovative solutions for advanced reconstruction in the repair of hernias and abdominal wall soft tissue deficiencies that may require the addition of a non-absorbable reinforcing or bridging material. These are intended for single-stage repairs including device options designed for intraperitoneal or preperitoneal placement. The devices are appropriate for use in open, laparoscopic or robotic procedures.

Many hernia/abdominal wall reconstruction patients present with comorbidities that may impact successful outcomes/effective wound healing. These dynamics demand a hernia mesh material that is stronger*,1 and reliably lasting, to increase patient quality of life and avoid time-consuming, costly complications.

With device configurations for both intraperitoneal and preperitoneal placement, GORE® SYNECOR Biomaterial offers the true hybrid tri-layer solution, with permanent strength and rapid tissue ingrowth that is designed to minimize complications through these key outcomes:

  • Facilitates wound healing: Tissue-building scaffold helps promote rapid vascularity and ingrowth. Demonstrated vascularity reported within seven days and tissue ingrowth within 30 days*.
  • Supports rapid vascularization*: A macroporous knit of inert, dense, monofilament PTFE fibers embedded between bioabsorbable GORE 3D PGA:TMC** Web Scaffold layers. The unique GORE 3D PGA:TMC Web Scaffold layers (preperitoneal and intraperitoneal) deliver rapid* tissue ingrowth and vascularization, while the nonporous film minimizes visceral attachment to the material (intraperitoneal device only).
  • Minimizes need for removal: The PTFE fiber design, along with increased vascularity, may aid in the treatability of the device to minimize the need for removal if postoperative infection were to occur.*,2 
  • Enables single-stage repair*: Unique combination of proven technologies (see product diagrams) promotes quality tissue generation and lasting strength for challenging repairs.
