Overview

A clinically proven umbilical hernia repair solution.

The Ventralex™ Hernia Patch is a self-expanding polypropylene and ePTFE patch that allows for an intraabdominal, tension-free repair. This technique is designed to eliminate the lateral dissection typically required for preperitoneal placement, which may help minimize post-op pain. Deep placement of the prosthetic also allows for a strong repair and less chance of recurrence.

INDICATIONS

The Bard™ Ventralex™ Hernia Patch is intended for use in all forms of hernia repair requiring reinforcement with a non absorbable support material. The small Bard® Ventralex™ Hernia Patch (4.3 cm/1.7 in) is also intended to repair soft tissue deficiencies, including deficiencies caused by trocars.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

Do not use the Bard™ Ventralex™ Hernia Patch in infants or children, whereby future growth will be compromised by use of such mesh material. Do not use the Bard™ Ventralex™ Hernia Patch for the reconstruction of cardiovascular defects. Literature reports that there is a possibility for adhesion formation when the polypropylene is placed in contact with the bowel or viscera.

WARNINGS

Do not cut or reshape any portion of the Bard® Ventralex™ Hernia Patch (as this could affect its effectiveness), except for the monofilament polypropylene positioning strap. Care should be taken not to cut or nick the SorbaFlex™ PDO Monofilament. If the recoil ring is cut or damaged during insertion or fixation, additional complications may include bowel or skin perforation and infection. Follow proper rolling techniques for all patches as described in these instructions for use as other rolling techniques may potentially compromise the SorbaFlex™ PDO Monofilament. Ensure proper orientation; the solid white surface (ePTFE) must be oriented against the bowel or sensitive organs. Do not place the mesh surface against the bowel. There is a possibility for adhesion formation when mesh (including strap) is placed in direct contact with the bowel or viscera.

ADVERSE REACTIONS

Possible complications include seroma, adhesions, hematoma, inflammation, extrusion, fistula formation, infection, allergic reaction, and recurrence of the hernia or soft tissue defect. If the SorbaFlex™ PDO monofilament is cut or damaged during insertion or fixation, additional complications may include bowel or skin perforation and infection.

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