Cook' releases Surgisis Biodesign Umbilical Hernia Graft to offer tailored treatment

Cook : 11 February, 2008  (New Product)
Cook Medical has introduced the Surgisis Biodesign Umbilical Hernia Graft for umbilical hernia repair that is designed specifically to fit the individual anatomy of a patient.
The Surgisis Biodesign Umbilical Hernia Graft incorporates the best attributes of a biologic Graft resistance to infection and complete remodeling with the added benefits of moderate price, ease of use and widespread availability.

The distinct design provides patients with a tailored treatment that helps create functional, living tissue and restores the natural form and function of the body. As a result, patients experience a quick and efficient recovery period and typically return to their normal, daily activities within two to three weeks after surgery.

Additionally, the Surgisis Biodesign Umbilical Hernia Graft uses a hole pattern along the periphery of the graft, which provides surgeons with additional guidance for suture placement. The fast-hydrating material has a shelf life of 18 months, requires no refrigeration and is ready to suture within five minutes.

Umbilical hernias occur when part of the intestine protrudes through a weak spot in the abdominal muscles at the navel. The bulge typically ranges from one to five centimeters in diameter. Although painless in children and infants, umbilical hernias that appear during adulthood can cause severe abdominal discomfort. Umbilical hernias can be caused by obesity, heavy lifting, coughing, multiple pregnancies and fluid in the abdominal cavity.

“Our latest addition to the Surgisis Biodesign family clearly demonstrates our dedication and commitment to medical innovation,” said Andy Cron, vice president of Cook Medical’s surgery strategic business unit of Cook Medical. “Umbilical hernias affect thousands of Americans each year, from infants to seniors. The Surgisis Biodesign Umbilical Hernia Graft addresses the individual and unique needs of each patient, and provides each patient with a safe, effective and lasting repair to a common and painful condition.”

Cook Medical’s Surgisis Biodesign product line provides treatments for several procedural areas including hernia repair, fistula repair, plastic and reconstructive/ENT, staple line reinforcement, Peyronie’s repair, continence restoration, dural repair and pelvic floor repair.
