Market-leading preperitoneal device:1
- Delivers significant reduction of pain — both short — and long-term — versus conventional Lichenstein repair2*§
- Low rate of recurrence (<1%) for a lasting repair3†‡
- Unique MONOCRYL and PROLENE filament construction for enhanced handling and placement4,5
- MONOCRYL film on underlay facilitates even deployment in the preperitoneal space5
- Proven bilayer design combines anterior and posterior repair for long-term security6
* Data from a prospective, longitudinal study of 642 patients receiving open inguinal hernia repair using either ULTRAPRO® Hernia System or Lichtenstein (LS) repair from the International Hernia Mesh Registry (IHMR). Clinical outcomes and quality of life were compared at 1, 6, 12, and 24 months postoperatively
§ Results from comparator studies should be interpreted with the understanding that the appropriate choice of mesh for any given patient depends on numerous factors, including the type and size of the defect, the patient’s medical condition and history and surgeon preference.
† Data from a prospective, longitudinal study of 2792 patients receiving hernia repair with ULTRAPRO® Hernia System from the IHMR
