  • Techniques for Using Biologic Mesh in Hernia Repair: Clinical Experience With VERITAS Collagen Matrix

    Source: General Surgery News

    Despite some benefits over synthetic meshes, some biologic meshes possess features, such as a high elastin content or crosslinked rigidity, that make them a less optimal choice for specific procedures. VERITAS is a non-crosslinked biologic mesh comprised of bovine pericardium intended for use in reconstruction of the pelvic floor excluding transvaginal pelvic organ prolapse, the repair of rectal prolapse excluding rectocele, and for use as an implant for the surgical repair of soft tissue deficiencies. VERITAS is designed to provide surgeons an additional option that aims to further reduce operative and postoperative complications related to biologic mesh use. This report describes the use of VERITAS in 3 overall procedure types: hiatal hernia repair; incisional and parastomal hernia repair, and abdominal wall and breast reconstruction including discussion on effective techniques in employing VERITAS mesh.

"Our results show that the combination of the two interventions supersized the benefits to heart health."
