  • A tension-free repair that protects both the femoral and inguinal regions (myopectineal orifice) from recurrence

  • All the advantages of a secure posterior repair, from a simple anterior approach
  • A device that provides the maximum allowable flat surface for effective tissue ingrowth in inguinal hernia repair
  • A repair that is less bulky than preformed plugs thereby minimizing patient discomfort.
  • The underlay mesh that when deployed protects the entire Myopectineal orifice.
  • Simple, reliable, fast, and cost effective repair.
  • Combines the three most common tension free repair techniques used today.
  • Virtually eliminates the chance of recurrence.
  • Potential for rapid return to normal activities.
  • Easy to use.
  • Requires minimal or no sutures to secure in place.
  • Less bulk than preformed plugs.
  • Large pore sizes to support fast tissue in-growth and good capillary penetration.
  • Less expensive than other mesh devices used in hernia repair.
  • Minimal shrinkage as a result of scar tissue maturation; unlike the plug device which has been shown to lose up to 70% of its volume as a result of scar tissue maturation.
  • Description The PROLENE polypropylene Hernia System is a sterile, pre-shaped, three-dimensional device constructed of an onlay patch connected by a mesh cylinder to a circular underlay patch. The PROLENE Hernia System's 3 in 1 unique and innovative design combines the three most popular tension free techniques utilized today in the repair of inguinal hernias. Its Onlay Patch covers the entire floor of the canal; it overlaps the pubic tubercle for added support, and provides the security of conventional patch techniques. Its Connector provides the simplicity of a plug repair. Additionally, it secures the underlay patch to prevent migration. Its profile is a significant improvement over the bulk of conventional plugs. The Underlay Patch, like a laparoscopic repair, provides posterior support; however it accomplishes that support from a much simple anterior approach. This underlay patch lays in the preperitoneal space and opens to cover the entire myopectineal orifice. This key and exclusive feature of the PROLENE Hernia System ensures that both the femoral and inguinal regions are protected to minimize the possibility of recurrence.
