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® Strip 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.
