We developed these three hernia-repair technologies through our partnerships with surgeons and hospitals.
A product capable of being completely remodeled1
Hernias and abdominal wall defects can benefit from the immediate and long-term strength provided by the Biodesign Hernia Graft. This graft uses small intestinal submucosa technology, which provides support as it is completely remodeled into patient tissue.1 The patient’s body fully remodels the graft. No foreign material is left behind.1

The first hybrid hernia-repair device
The Zenapro® device combines elements of biologic grafts with a synthetic mesh. The body can remodel the biologic material, which surrounds the synthetic mesh, into new tissue.1,2 The hybrid device allows you to help a patient who could benefit from lasting reinforcement, but whose procedure may be too complex for synthetic meshes. While the biologic component of the Zenapro device allows the growth of organized tissue,1,2 the polypropylene mesh allows a lasting repair.

A suture passer that’s sharp and ergonomically designed
Novapass® suture passers are designed to let you pass sutures through tissue with ease. And the Novapass Reverdin Suture Passer is the first disposable suture passer with the Reverdin curve. The ergonomic handle can be gripped naturally, which helps you place sutures precisely.
