Prostheses and Products for Hernioplasty
This chapter outlines the numerous materials that are available for the repair of inguinal, ventral, and other types of hernias. This includes biological, synthetic, absorbable and hybrid prosthetic products. It also itemizes several fixation devices that are available. Due to the sheer volume of materials that are available throughout the world, this should not be considered a complete compilation of all of them. It represents, however, the best listing that I have been able to obtain at this time. All product names belong to the manufacturer listed and photos cannot be used with permission of the publisher or the manufacturer as some of them are copyrighted or trademarked.
Although it is not designated on the propriety names of most of the products listed in this chapter, it should be acknowledged to the reader that all manufacturer names and products are either registered trademarks, copyrighted or exclusive to that company. These cannot be used without the permission of the respective company.
Many of these photos were taken by myself or provided by the company itself. I wish to thank all of these companies for their invaluable assistance in putting the most accurate information into this chapter that I could not have obtained without their assistance.
