Monofilament mesh gets CE Mark approval

Mesh ImageChicago, Illinois, USA-based Surgical Innovation Associates has secured CE Mark approval for reconstructive and aesthetic indications – including abdominal hernia prophylaxis, breast tissue support and prosthetic breast support – using its DuraSorb absorbable mesh.

Made from polydioxanone monofilaments, the product provides mechanical support and scaffolding during the early months of wound healing and scar formation, followed by gradual absorption, to leave the patient free of foreign material within a year.
