Ethicon unveils SECURESTRAP Absorbable Strap Fixation Device

Ethicon has made SECURESTRAP 5mm Absorbable Strap Fixation Device, which provides secure mesh fixation in laparoscopic (minimally invasive) and open hernia repair procedures, available in the US.

The ETHICON SECURESTRAP Fixation Device, loaded with spring, deploys absorbable fixation ‘straps’ to fasten hernia mesh to soft tissue.

Ethicon said the strap design uses two points of fixation to straddle mesh pores and fibers, including large-pore meshes, delivering consistent and secure mesh fixation.

Greenville Hospital System, Greenville, SC, Hernia Center co-director and Minimally Invasive Division of Department of Surgery director William Cobb said the ETHICON SECURESTRAP Fixation Device provides secure mesh fixation from multiple angles, even when using a large-pore mesh, which offers him flexibility in surgery without compromising holding strength.
