OptiFix™ Open Absorbable Fixation System

Indications

The OptiFix™ Open Absorbable Fixation System is indicated for the fixation of surgical mesh to tissues during open surgical procedures, such as hernia repair.

Contraindications

Contraindications associated with open surgical procedures relative to mesh fixation apply, including but not limited to:

  • Fixation of vascular or neural structures
  • Fixation of bone and cartilage,
  • Situations with insufficient ingrowth of tissue into the mesh over time, which could result in inadequate fixation once the fastener is absorbed.
  • Carefully inspect the area in the vicinity of the tissue being fastened to avoid inadvertent penetration of underlying structures such as nerves, vessels, viscera or bone. Use of the OptiFix™ Open Absorbable Fixation System in the close vicinity of such underlying structures is contraindicated. For reference, the length of the fastener below the fastener head is 6.1 mm, the fastener head is another 0.6 mm (total 6.7 mm).

Warnings

The device may not fixate through prosthetics derived from biologic material such as xenografts and allografts. Prosthetic should be evaluated for compatibility prior to use. After use, the OptiFix™ Open Absorbable Fixation System may be a potential biohazard. Handle and dispose of in accordance with any local and federal laws regarding medical waste.

Adverse Reactions

Adverse reactions and potential complications associated with fixation devices such as the OptiFix™ Open Absorbable Fixation System may include, but are not limited to the following: hemorrhage; pain, edema and erythema at wound site; allergic reaction to Poly(D, L)-lactide; infection/septicemia; hernia recurrence/wound dehiscence.

Please consult product labels and inserts for any indications, contraindications, hazards, warnings, precautions and instructions for use.
