Optomesh® ULTRALIGHT is characterised by high porosity, large pores and low surface mass which results in exceptionally delicate and elastic device. Optomesh® ULTRALIGHT device is indicated by high mechanical parameters which results in proper tissue support. Moreover, the use of blue orienting lines makes the mesh application much easier and more visible during operation.
There is a slight difference in price of Optomesh®
No. Pure polypropylene meshes must not be implanted inside the peritoneum because it increases the risk of adhesions.
S-Pore and L-Pore meshes have blue orienting lines what makes them visible during the procedure and, as well, it is easier to adjust them to mechanical tissue features. Meshes are to be implemented along the muscle, according to higher elasticity direction. S-Pore and L-Pore should be implemented laterally (orienting lines should be placed horizontally). M-Pore mesh is universal because it has similar properties of deformation in lateral and longitudinal direction.
In terms of different types of hernia, the mechanical properties of tissues should be established and the implant should be placed according to direction of higher elasticity.
Yes. L-Pore mesh has the lowest surface mass, and it is recommended for hernias with small hernia ring (diameter up to 5 cm).
M-Pore type is more universal and can be used for hernias with small, medium and large hernia ring (diameter above 10 cm).
S-Pore is the mesh with the smallest pore diameter, and can be applied for hernias with small or medium hernia ring (diameter up to 10 cm).
Final decision concerning the mesh selection is taken by the surgeon
