Smart Design. Not Sharp Design.

The unique fastener design of the SorbaFix™ Absorbable Fixation system means no sharp points are left behind in the patient. Preclinical data shows that a hollow core allows tissue in-growth through the fastener.2 The 5 mm depth of tissue purchase and consistent thread diameter from head to tip assure maximum tissue engagement during open and laparoscopic procedures. TheSorbaFix™ Absorbable Fixation System has a 5 mm, low-profile delivery system that offers smooth, efficient deployment. Keeping track of the pre-loaded 15- or 30-fastener configurations is now easy with a new fastener gauge.

Features and Benefits
  • Repair strength approximately 7x greater than maximum Intraabdominal Pressure (IAP). 1, 2
  • Threaded, hollow core allows for tissue in-growth through interior of fastener.2


Shear strength retention illustrates degradation of the SorbaFix™ fastener over time. The SorbaFix™ fastener retains 100% of its strength within the first 2 months, providing secure fixation during the initial healing period.2

Preclinical data. Results may not correlate to performance in humans.

  • The consistent diameter of the threads from head to tip and fastener length are designed to maximize tissue engagement.
  • Obturator with piloting tip accurately pilots fastener through mesh and tissue.
  • Atraumatic blunt tip fastener with smooth head and no exposed points.
  • Innovative mechanical design enables a durable delivery system.
  • Absorption of the poly (D, L) – lactide (PDLLA) fasteners is nearly complete at approximately 12 months post implantation, leaving less foreign material behind.2
