Resorbable mesh has become increasingly popular in the repair of certain extraperitoneal hernias, as a means to provide the short term support necessary during the healing process, while leaving no foreign material in the body long term.
Aran Biomedical has significant experience working with resorbable yarns and manufacturing mesh that maximise the mechanical properties of the materials used, to deliver performance equivalent to current non-resorbable designs. All mesh is custom designed, tailored to the intended indication and produced to meet the requirements and specifications of our customers. During design and manufacturing Aran Biomedical can provide direction to the client on these important considerations:
- Mechanical properties e.g. stiffness/ material modulus.
- Degradation – rate of material resorption, in relation to regeneration rate of local tissue.
- Pore architecture – selection of pore size and distribution appropriate to local cell type.
