SURGIMESH Surgical Implants Expands Distribution Coverage Across U.S. as Adoption Increases Significantly and Hernia Mesh Market Grows at Rapid Pace

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - June 21, 2010) -  The hernia mesh repair market is one of the fastest growing areas in the field of medical implants, and SURGIMESH is leading the way with its innovative surgical textile technology. With baby boomers entering higher incidence of hernia repair years, patients experiencing complications associated with older generation mesh technology and obesity-related surgeries on the rise, the market is growing at 12% each year and will continue to expand.

SURGIMESH provides hernia patients a variety of surgical mesh made of non-woven, microfiber polypropylene, the top choice of surgeons looking for flexible, long-lasting repairs that maximize patient comfort. The non-woven technology features tiny microfibers which create an optimal matrix for immediate and complete tissue incorporation. This allows the soft and flexible SURGIMESH to remain flat and unwrinkled after operations, reducing post-op pain and shrinkage. Products include SURGIMESH WN, a popular and fast-healing abdominal reinforcement product for surgeons treating inguinal and open ventral hernias, and SURGIMESH XB, for the treatment of laparoscopic ventral, incisional, and umbilical hernias. For open inguinal hernias, the EASY PLUG-PATCH SYSTEM adapts to the surgeons' wish, allowing for either a single layer or two-layer repair.

Positive clinical adoption of SURGIMESH has led to the high rate of distribution expansion, enabling coverage of all major metropolitan areas across the United States in 2010. Each SURGIMESH product and key configuration is designed for specific uses and is packaged individually ready for sterile delivery to the operating environment.
