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