GORE® SYNECOR Intraperitoneal Biomaterial is used when there is a need for permanent strength in intraperitoneal bridging applications for high risk ventral hernia patients.
GORE® SYNECOR Intraperitoneal Biomaterial combines long-term strength with rapid tissue ingrowth and vascularization providing a single-stage durable repair in high risk cases.
- GORE® BIO-A® Web scaffold facilitates cell infiltration and tissue generation
- Macroporous knit of dense, monofilament PTFE fibers may reduce the risk of harboring bacteria due to the solid fiber
- Nonporous PGA/TMC* film minimizes visceral attachment to the material
GORE® SYNECOR Intraperitoneal Biomaterial is intended for use in the repair of hernias and abdominal wall or thoracic wall soft tissue deficiencies that may require the addition of non-absorbable reinforcing or bridging material. The material is appropriate for use in open, laparoscopic, or robotic procedures.
*Polyglycolic acid/trimethylene carbonate
- Can a patient with an implanted device made from PTFE and polyglycolic acid/trimethylene carbonate (PGA/TMC) copolymer safely undergo radiation and/or chemotherapy?
- How will a device made from PTFE and PGA/TMC show up on CT, MRI, or X-rays?
