About

The next step in hernia repair and abdominal wall reconstruction.

OviTex Reinforced BioScaffolds are not just biologic or synthetic. They are implants purposefully designed for use in hernia repair and abdominal wall reconstruction.

Mechanism of Action

Watch this video about OviTex Reinforced BioScaffolds.

OviTex Reinforced BioScaffolds interweave polymer with a custom "lock-stitch" pattern through layers of biologic tissue in a unique embroidered construction. The biologic material, derived from ovine rumen, has been optimized to minimize foreign body response and enables functional tissue remodeling. The polymer provides additional strength, along with improved handling and load‑sharing capability.

Portfolio

There are three configurations of OviTex specifically for ventral hernia repair and abdominal wall reconstruction. These products are available with either permanent (polypropylene) polymer or resorbable (polyglycolic acid) polymer reinforcing the same biologic material. The information below is applicable to both permanent and resorbable lines.


Images represent permanent polymer OviTex products.
Resorbable polymer products have clear polymer.
