Previously, in order to close complex hernias, time-consuming abdominal wall reconstruction procedures were required. fasciotens®Hernia makes it possible to stretch the abdominal wall intraoperatively in approx. 30 minutes via standardised,controlled traction.
Thanks to the (CE-)certified fasciotens®Hernia, a mean gain in length of approx. 10 cm can be achieved with maximum preservation of tissue, which makes it possible to preserve the integrity of the abdominal wall and to close the hernia directly and safely.1)
