Covidien offers the AbsorbaTack™ 20 Short Fixation Device, part of a comprehensive system for open ventral hernia repair. The new absorbable fixation device, with Parietex™ Composite Open Skirt (PCO OS) Mesh, provides a solution that adds no sharps in the OR for a safer surgical environment. According to the company:
- The AbsorbaTack™ 20 Short features an easy-to-use 18.5 cm short shaft that gives surgeons ergonomic access to the defect site and deploys absorbable tacks without the need for piloting sharps.
- The Parietex™ PCO OS skirted mesh provides fast, strong tissue in-growth from compliant, hydrophilic polyester mesh and an outstanding barrier to visceral attachments to the implant through a resorbable porcine collagen film.
