TiLENE® Blue Mesh

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


  • Titanium’s body compatibility properties transferred to a hernia mesh 
  • A better quality of life for patients1 
  • Easy handling and excellent visibility 
  • Standardisation: TiLENE® Blue Mesh is suitable for all intra- and extraperitoneal hernias and surgical techniques incl. IPOM. Only a few mesh variants suffice to cover all needs of general and visceral surgery.
  • Time and cost savings: The hydrophilic surface of TiLENE® Blue Mesh facilitates the handling during laparoscopic surgery. Furthermore, certain indications do not require fixation.2,3 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.
  • Imaging diagnostics are not affected

Titanisation of mesh implants

Titanium is one of the most biocompatible materials and the preferred alloy used in various surgical applications since 1946.4 In 2002, pfmmedical successfully developed the first procedure worldwide that permits the application of titanium to flexible and elastic primary materials, specifically polypropylene meshes.

TiLENE® Blue Mesh mesh implants are type 1a polypropylene meshes (macroporous, lightweight, and monofilamentous) with a hydrophilic (“water-loving”) surface due to titanisation. A hydrophilic mesh implant integrates better into the surrounding tissue than a hydrophobic (“water-repellent”) material.

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