TiLENE® Blue


Our titanised hernia meshes TiLENE® Blue are hydrophilic with excellent body compatibility providing better patient outcomes. TiLENE® Blue is indicated for use in hernia surgery for all types of hernias and surgical techniques incl. IPOM.


Benefits

Improved quality of life  Body-compatible properties of titanium transferred to a hernia network for a higher quality of life for the patients.1

Standardisation  TiLENE® Blue is suitable for all intra- and extraperitoneal hernias and surgical techniques incl. IPOM. Only a few mesh variants suffice to cover all needs of hernia surgery.

Time and cost savings  The hydrophilic surface of TiLENE® Blue facilitates the handling during laparoscopic surgery. Furthermore, certain indications do not require fixation.13, 14 Consequently, the entire procedure becomes more time and cost efficient.

Easier alignment of the mesh  The blue orientation stripes facilitate the alignment of the mesh implant.

Knowledge

Titanisation of mesh implants

Titanium is one of the most biocompatible materials and the preferred alloy used in various surgical applications since 1946.2 In 2002, pfm medical successfully developed the first procedure worldwide that permits the application of titanium to flexible and elastic primary materials, specifically polypropylene meshes.

TiLENE® Blue mesh implants are type 1a polypropylene meshes (macroporous, lightweight, and monofilamentous) which are hydrophilic due to titanisation. A hydrophilic mesh implant integrates better into surrounding tissue than a hydrophobic material.

Further information on titanization can be found on our knowledge page.

Application Range

Suitable for all hernia types including IPOM.
