Hernia Repair Implant
The Permacol® implant is a porcine dermal tissue that offers significant advantages in several types of hernia repair. The implant is reinforced through a proprietary cross linking process, which results in a 3-dimensional scaffold resistant to human and bacterial collagenase. In addition to allowing cellular ingrowth and revascularization, the Permacol Implant produces minimal inflammatory response and minimal risk of immune response, precluding testing for potential allergic reaction. For time savings and cost-effectiveness, the tissue is available in a wide range of sizes, is flexible, and is packaged sterile, requiring no rehydration prior to use.
