ULTRAPRO ADVANCED™

Introducing ULTRAPRO ADVANCED ™ Macroporous Partially Absorbable Mesh for inguinal and ventral hernia repair – Advanced design to help optimize patient outcomes and ease of use

Advanced features of ULTRAPRO ADVANCED ™ Mesh

  • Physiologically designed for comfortable healing
    • Flexible in a way that approximates the natural movement of the abdominal wall, with 2:1 stretch416,444-446,489,¥,†
    • Unique knitted mesh construction promotes good tissue ingrowth/tissue integration446,‡
  • Balanced strength for strong and lasting repair
    • High suture pullout strength445
    • High tensile strength445
    • Withstands ≈2x maximum intraabdominal pressure445,448
    • No bulge visible in a preclinical study at 28 days and 91 days446,€
  • Designed for exceptional intraoperative handling
    • Increased initial stiffness for easier handling445,§
    • Springs open for easier deployment in laparoscopic repairs
    • Packaged flat, without folds, for easier positioning
    • Blue stripes facilitate orienting and positioning the mesh449
    • Trimmable based on surgeon’s discretion, while leaving sufficient overlap to help prevent recurrence449

ULTRAPRO ADVANCED CCS score graph
  • Significant reduction in pain score at 1 year postsurgery versus presurgery343,*
  • The IHMR uses the Carolinas Comfort Scale (CCS), a validated, hernia-specific quality-of-life tool for assessing early and long-term symptoms following hernia repair491
  • The CCS uses a 6-point scale from 0 (no symptoms) to 5 (disabling symptoms)491

Built on the proven technology of ULTRAPRO® Macroporous Partially Absorbable Mesh343,347

ULTRAPRO Mesh was shown to offer continuous short- and long-term improvement in return to daily activities494,‡
