Freedom Octomesh™

Ventral Hernia Repair System

The Freedom Octomesh Ventral Hernia is designed to streamline open ventral hernia repair using an extraperitoneal sublay placement and simplified securement method called STRAP Technique.

The unique design and proprietary technologies of Freedom Octomesh Ventral Hernia Repair System brings in coalescence the Freedom Octomesh body and the dynamic straps. Designed to provide fixation-free placement with no onlay component and no need for the invasion of the anterior space.

The STRAP technique

The Freedom Octomesh implant is designed to be used in open ventral hernia repair. It is placed as a sublay mesh. It can be placed above the peritoneum or above the retrorectus fascia. The eight anchoring straps of the Freedom Octomesh implant are used to stabilize the body of the implant by friction within the abdominal wall while the tissue integrates into the mesh body. A special strap passer is used to tunnel the anchoring straps.

The Freedom Octomesh is placed above the peritoneum. The eight anchoring straps are positioned radially and pulled through the abdominal wall muscles.

The Freedom Octomesh anchoring straps are pulled through the layers of the abdominal wall to hold the body of the mesh in place during the phase of tissue ingrowth.

Simplified, broad coverage. Placement made easy and secure.

Designed to improve patient outcomes

No Sutures. No Tacks

Eight anchoring straps use frictional securement to ensure a stable implant during the critical early post-operative period.

Freedom Octomesh Clinical Study

Eight (8) radiopaque markers were placed on the implant adjacent to each strap. X-ray was used in 51 patients, for a total of 408 markers, to evaluate their position.

Simplified Coverage

  • No Anterior dissection
  • Simplified transfascial securement
  • Standardized procedure

402/408

51 patients, each with 8 markers (408 total markers evaluated)
*6/408 markers displaced between 1cm and 1.5cm on seperate implants

STRAP Technique With Freedom Octomesh

  • 1.

    Place implant into the prepared and measured pocket, ensuring appropriate defect overlap. Grasp anchoring straps with clamps.

  • 2.

    Tunnel the strap passer anterior to the rectus muscle to the edge of the pocket.

  • 3.

    As the strap passer reaches the pocket margin, guide the tip through the tissue.

  • 4.

    Using direct visualization, insert approximately 1.5cm of strap into the passer.
  • 5.

    Gently pull the strap passer back through the tunnel with engaged strap.  Repeat this technique for the other straps.

  • 6.

    After closure of the fascia, all eight (8) straps should be tensioned for final implant positioning and trimmed flush to the exit points

Order information

Ready to be implanted

Freedom Octomesh is packaged in a convenient tray system - designed to reduce handling of the implant until it is ready to be implanted. Each kit is complete with an ergonomic strap passer.

The implant is loaded on a unique white plastic carrier that protects the implant and allows a clean transfer to the operating site.
