  • Bard® Dulex™ Mesh


Bard Dulex mesh is a dual-sided ePTFE mesh designed for ventral hernia repair.  On one side is a micro-porous structure designed to minimize visceral attachment to the prosthesis. On the other side is a macro-porous structure designed to promote tissue ingrowth.

This ingrowth side has a pore size of approximately 800 microns, which is nearly equivalent to polypropylene mesh.  Bard Dulex Mesh has about 35 times more tissue ingrowth capacity then the Gore-Tex® DualMesh® Corduroy Biomaterial.

Bard Dulex Mesh also features a unique inter-pore structure. Running through these pores are structures called fibrils. These fibrils act like support beams and allow tissue to grow in and around them.

Finally, Bard Dulex Mesh is an overall stronger material than the GoreGore-Tex® DualMesh® Corduroy Biomaterial. In a laboratory test, the Dulex Mesh had an average ultimate strength of 16.2 kg/cm, compared to the Gore-Tex® DualMesh® Corduroy Biomaterial at 13.7kg/cm.

  • GORE DUALMESH® PLUS

This biomaterial is the first dual-surface hernia repair material with antimicrobial technology for controlling potential operative contamination of the material. This advanced ePTFE biomaterial contains two antimicrobial preservative agents, silver carbonate and chlorhexidine diacetate, which act to inhibit bacterial colonization on the patch for up to 10 days post-implantation.

GORE DUALMESH® PLUS Biomaterial is also available with holes. These macropores encourage faster tissue incorporation, while maintaining the benefits of GORE DUALMESH® Biomaterial. It also offers all the performance advantages of Gore's standard DUALMESH® Biomaterial, such as rapid host tissue incorporation and minimal foreign-body response.

preference?  We would probably go for Sofradim.  It is very easy to use (unfold, manipulated comes with two fixation sutures).  We think that the mesh is easier to manipulate when it has not been rehydrated.  As for the longevity of repair.  We will let you know.
