Overview

Polypropylene and Permanent ePTFE Barrier Designed for Ventral Hernia Repair

The Bard™ Composix™ E/X Mesh, combines two clinically proven biomaterials, Bard™ polypropylene mesh and ePTFE, into one product. The polypropylene side of the Bard™ Composix™ E/X Mesh promotes tissue ingrowth into the abdominal wall over time and eliminates the need for transfixation sutures. The visceral side of the Bard™ Composix™ E/X Mesh features a permanent submicronic ePTFE barrier, which minimizes attachments to the prosthesis. This ePTFE barrier is permanent, offering long-term protection.

Features and Benefits

Two distinctly different sides:

  • Polypropylene Bard™ mesh provides optimal tissue ingrowth
  • Robust sub-micronic ePTFE permanent barrier minimizes attachments to the prosthesis

Elliptically shaped design

Reduces the need to trim the mesh, saving time

 

Low profile mesh 

That is easy to manipulate for open repairs and to deploy for laparoscopic repairs

Monofilament PTFE stitches 

Minimize attachments to the prosthesis

Sealed edges

 

Provide an overhang of ePTFE without compromising the polypropylene Bard® Mesh side

INDICATIONS

Bard™ Composix™ E/X Mesh is indicated for use in the reconstruction of soft tissue deficiencies, such as for the repair of hernias and chest wall defects.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

  1. Literature reports there may be a possibility for adhesion formation when the polypropylene is placed in direct contact with the bowel or viscera.
  2. Do not use the Bard™ Composix™ E/X Mesh, in infants or children whereby future growth will be compromised by use of such material.
  3. Do not use Bard™ Composix™ E/X Mesh, for the reconstruction of cardiovascular defects.

WARNINGS

  1. Ensure proper orientation; the solid white surface (ePTFE) must be oriented against the bowel or sensitive organs. Do not place the polypropylene mesh surface against the bowel or sensitive organs. There may be a possibility for adhesion formation when polypropylene mesh is placed in direct contact with the bowel or viscera.
  2. If an infection develops, treat the infection aggressively. Consideration should be given regarding the need to remove the mesh. An unresolved infection may require removal of the device.

PRECAUTIONS

DAVOL™ fixation devices or nonabsorbable monofilament sutures are recommended to properly secure the prosthesis. If other fixation devices are used, they must be indicated for use in hernia repair. Care should be taken to ensure that the prosthesis is adequately fixated to the abdominal wall. If necessary, additional fasteners and/or sutures should be used.

ADVERSE REACTIONS

Possible complications include seroma, adhesions, hematomas, inflammation, extrusion, fistula formation and recurrence of the hernia or soft tissue defect.

Please consult package insert for more detailed safety information and instructions for use.
