A unique macroporous PTFE Hernia mesh with excellent anti-adhesion and bacterial resistant properties.
MotifMESH is a truly unique, high performance product for hernia repair. It is made from lightweight condensed Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) offering excellent biocompatibility¹³⁴⁵ with a non-porous ultra-smooth surface. Its condensed profile results in a 90% reduction in thickness over predicate devices, improving ease of use and trocar deployment, while ensuring uniform strength and durability.
Its unique star-motif macroporous open structure facilitates fast incorporation²⁴, visualisation of underlying tissue, as well as excellent handling and conformability to support patient comfort. When these characteristics are compared with other predicate devices on the market, MotifMESH stands out as a high performance mesh⁴⁵.
Proven performance across key criteria:
Mesh Infection Resistance
Unlike traditional expanded PTFE that features a microporous structure which can encourage bacterial formation, the condensed anti-adhesive smooth surface of MotifMESH, offers excellent anti-bacterial qualities to reduce infection risk²³⁴.
MotifMESH is designed with a Star-motif macro-porous structure to optimise tissue integration and healing³⁵, reducing the potential for recurrence.
Visceral Adhesion Resistance
When compared to other hernia mesh, its smooth, anti-adhesive monolayer structure helps to reduce visceral adhesion formation³.
MotifMESH has demonstrated minimal shrinkage in pre-clinical trials⁴, making it an effective solution for large ventral hernia repair.
