Insightra Medical Launches the Freedom(TM) Ventral Hernia Repair, an Innovative New Way to Deploy Sublay Implants for Ventral Hernias Without Suturing

far lateral space due to lack of access. This can result in several problems such as the mesh not being placed widely enough, bleeding and pain. More so, if the mesh is put under a lot of force, the sutures can be pulled out causing more problems.”

Another issue in incisional hernia repair is how to achieve an adequate overlap of the mesh over the defect edges. An insufficient overlap of the mesh is unanimously considered as the major cause of recurrence.
Insightra Medical has been developing a system that would eliminate the need for complex suturing, yet give reliable, repeatable fixation of the mesh during the crucial initial healing phase. They designed a mesh implant with a difference. The mesh (manufactured by Assut Europe SpA) has a body similar to a standard implant, but radiating from the body are eight arms made of the same mesh material. Called Octomesh(tm), this implant is held in place by the mesh arms being quickly and simply tunnelled through the muscles of the abdominal wall, requiring no sutures or tacks. The eight arms can be placed in a matter of minutes and even adjusted once the fascia has been closed - an advantage over other methods of repair.

“The use of mesh straps to hold implants in place is nothing new,” says Steve Bell, President of Insightra Medical and co-inventor of the new system. “They have been used in sub urethral sling procedures and prolapse procedures for over a decade. We have invented a way to use that tried and tested technique in ventral hernia surgery.”

One major advantage of this system is the ability to place the straps at the lateral extremes of the abdomen where traditionally it would be difficult to place sutures. This allows for a very broad placement of mesh in a tension free way. The strap system of the Octomesh™ is designed to allow a wide yet simple coverage of the abdominal wall, away from the edges of the hernia opening. This helps the s
