Medtronic Permacol™ Surgical Implant

A porcine dermal collagen implant for hernia and abdominal wall repair.

Reliability is critical

In soft tissue repair, reliability is critical. Combining the tensile strength of synthetic hernia repair1 materials with the biocompatibility of an acellular porcine dermal implant, Permacol™ surgical implant delivers proven durability and strength for ventral hernia repair and abdominal wall reconstruction.

Permacol™ surgical implant is a porcine dermal collagen implant from which cells, cell debris, DNA and RNA are removed in a gentle process that is not damaging to the 3D collagen matrix. The resulting acellular collagen matrix is then cross-linked for enhanced durability.

Features

The cross-linking of Permacol™ surgical implant offers advantages over many other collagen-based implants for hernia and abdominal wall repair. Human cadaveric grafts and other non-crosslinked grafts may have initial success due to rapid tissue remodeling but may ultimately result in loss of tensile strength, increased tissue laxity and high recurrence rates that require additional surgical revisions.1-7 With its optimal cross-linking and gentle processing methods, Permacol™ surgical implant offers long-lasting dimensional stability that ensures the integrity of the collagen graft lasts through the body’s wound healing process.

Requiring no rehydration or refrigeration, Permacol™ surgical implant is ready to use when needed and is dimensionally stable. It is available in a wide variety of sizes, including larger sizes that eliminate the need for suturing multiple pieces together and provide the right size of implant regardless of the size of the defect.
