Davol Inc., a subsidiary of C.R. Bard, Inc. announces the launch of a new mesh deployment device: the Echo PS™ Positioning System. Davol's newest technology facilitates optimal mesh deployment during laparoscopic ventral hernia repair by eliminating some of the challenges of placing and positioning mesh. The Echo PS™ Positioning System is a low profile balloon that comes pre-attached to Ventralight™ ST Mesh or Composix™ L/P Mesh, offering surgeons the option of choosing an absorbable or permanent barrier mesh. When inflated, the Echo PS™ Positioning System facilitates the deployment (including unrolling, positioning and placement) of the mesh. Upon completion of initial fixation, the balloon is quickly deflated and completely removed from the body.
