  1. General description of the product

Optomesh® ULTRALIGHT is a non-resorbable, ultralight surgical mesh. They are produced from high-quality monofilament polypropylene yarn in transparent and blue colour.

Optomesh®  ULTRALIGHT is the state-of-the-art implant used in the surgical abdominal hernia repair. Its weave is characterised by big pores and very low weight thanks to which the mesh is exceptionally delicate, elastic and easy to handle during operation.

Large pores allow for proper overgrowth of the scar tissue without the ‘bridging’ effect, which is total overgrowth of tissue. Meshes are characterised by high mechanical properties both in the longitudinal and lateral directions, so they can be safely used for the supply of different kinds of hernia. The implant has atraumatic edges due to the use of thin yarn and special weave which results in no shredding or crumbing  while cutting. All the implants may be adjusted during operation and there is no need for the use of special tools.

Security and effectiveness of Optomesh®  is confirmed. The research was conducted in compliance with the PN-EN ISO 10993 norm in terms of: cytotoxicity, irritation and sensitisation,

Genotoxicity and sub-chronic and general toxicity, as well as the local post-implantation effect.

Optomesh®  ULTRALIGHT device meets the biological safety requirements.

There are three Optomesh® ULTRALIGHT meshes available: L-Pore, M-Pore and S-Pore.

L-Pore is the device with very large pores (surface approx. ) with blue orienting lines

M-Pore is the device with large pores (surface)

S-Pore is the device with small pores (surface) with blue orienting lines




Class IIB

In L-Pore and S-Pore the blue orienting lines were added so that the implant would be more visible and handy to implement during the procedure.


  1.  Intended Use

Optomesh®  ULTRALIGHT surgical meshes are recommended for reconstruction procedures in order to supplement/reinforce soft tissue defects. They are intended for primary and recurrent hernias, post-operational hernias, inguinal, umbilical hernias.


L-Pore is recommended for hernias with small connective tissue loss (hernia ring diameter up to 5cm)

M-Pore is recommended for hernias with small and medium connective tissue loss (hernia ring diameter up to 10 cm) and as well as in large hernias (hernia ring diameter above 10 cm)

S-Pore is recommended for small and medium hernias (hernia ring diameter up to 10 cm)
