Our titanised hernia meshes TiMESH are hydrophilic with excellent body compatibility providing better patient outcomes. TiMESH 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  TiMESH 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 TiMESH facilitates the handling during laparoscopic surgery. Furthermore, certain indications do not require fixation.1314 Consequently, the entire procedure becomes more time and cost efficient.

Different weights according to need  TiMESH is available in a variety of weights. The material of TiMESH extralight (16 g/m²) is ideally suited for the treatment of inguinal hernias. The mesh weight of TiMESH light (35 g/m²) allows it to be applied universally to all types of hernias using any surgical technique. TiMESH strong (65 g/m²) can be selected as required for pronounced hernia defects.

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.

TiMESH 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*.
