Date:5/10/2011

SOMERVILLE, N.J., May 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Ethicon, Inc., a worldwide leader in surgical care, today announces the availability of ETHICON SECURESTRAP™ 5mm Absorbable Strap Fixation Device in the U.S., the first fixation device to feature an absorbable "strap" design.  This product provides secure mesh fixation in laparoscopic (minimally invasive) and open hernia repair procedures.

The spring-loaded ETHICON SECURESTRAP™ Fixation Device deploys absorbable fixation "straps" to fasten hernia mesh to soft tissue. The unique strap design utilizes two points of fixation to straddle mesh pores and fibers, including large-pore meshes, delivering consistent and secure mesh fixation.

Unlike other fixation devices, the ETHICON SECURESTRAP™ Fixation Device design allows for secure tissue capture and penetration at various deployment angles to provide excellent holding strength. The strap's low profile minimizes foreign material exposure to the viscera.

"In hernia repair, secure mesh fixation is crucial to positive patient outcomes and reduced recurrences," said William S. Cobb, MD, Director of Minimally Invasive Division of Department of Surgery and Co-Director of the Hernia Center, Greenville Hospital System, Greenville, SC.* "ETHICON SECURESTRAP™ Fixation Device provides secure mesh fixation from multiple angles, even when using a large-pore mesh, which offers me flexibility in surgery without compromising holding strength."

Ethicon is committed to delivering innovative solutions for hernia repair and offers a wide portfolio of products to help surgeons meet their patients' needs. For more information about hernia repair and Ethicon's portfolio of hernia solutions products, including Instructions for Use
