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
