Detail

It’s a very sturdy and efficient variety of Prolus Polypropylene Mesh which is a prosthesis designed to reinforce the abdominal wall, via celioscopy or laparotomy, in cases of Crural and inguinal hernia and Incisional hernia. It cuts using a laser machine to stop the edges from tearing. This helps in providing precise shape. The mesh is transparent and flexible, making it ideal for use in celioscopy or laparotomy and enabling it to fit perfectly against the cavity wall. Our Prolus – Polypropylene Mesh has brilliant multidirectional mechanical properties and and resistance to fraying. Its non shrinkage feature offers long term material consistency. The range has very high tensile strength.Knot pull strength exceeds USP limits. The mesh is very smooth of texture that results in very little tissue trauma. Prolus sutures used in cardiovascular surgery are straight packed to minimize memory. Packed using Tyvek paper for extra security.
