Surgical Meshes and Patches
Surgical mesh is typically a flat, open construction textile often used to reinforce bone or tissue and can play a role in promoting healing by allowing for cellular in-growth. Surgical meshes can be knits or weaves, the choice of which is dependent on the application and the particular performance and physical features required. ATEX Technologies can manufacture mesh using our own proprietary PET or with other materials including bioresorbables. Although surgical mesh is often used in flat, cloth or ribbon-like configurations, it can also be engineered in the form of a tube. This format is often used in stabilization applications.
