Strattice Mesh

Content Contributor

STRATTICETM mesh is biologic mesh made from porcine dermis (pig skin) and processed in the lab. Unlike synthetic mesh, which is contraindicated in the setting of infection, STRATTICETM mesh can be used in the setting of a contaminated field and has been shown efficacious in the setting of abdominal wall reconstructions for large complex abdominal hernias.

It works to reinforce the reconstructed wall and acts as a scaffold for the patient’s own tissues to grow into. Once placed in the body, the mesh acts as a framework for the body to build on, helping reinforce the abdominal wall with natural host tissue. Complex abdominal wall hernia repair using STRATTICETM mesh involves suturing the mesh underneath the hernia site and this procedure is typically done under general anesthesia.
