Permacol® collagen implant, a unique sterile biological material that is dimensionally stable, resists collagenase breakdown and does not contribute to adhesion formation. The material is crosslinked with hexamethylene diisocyanate (HMDI) under a proprietary process that provides high biocompatibility, in-growth and durability in challenging surgical situations. The material does not need to be rehydrated and is ready to use out of the package. Permacol is available in large sizes up to 20 cm by 50 cm, allowing for abdominal wall repairs with just one piece in many cases, and provides an effective alternative for hernia and abdominal wall repair.
