Existing Clinical Problem
Acute and chronic post-operative pain has been associated with open inguinal hernia repair, with Reinpold et al reporting a 16.5% incidence of chronic pain 6 months after surgical repair(1). Point fixation and onlay meshes are the main causes for chronic pain after open inguinal hernia repair surgeries1.
The Proflor Solution
The combination of the dynamic core and the posterior disk is designed to provide fixation-free placement, allowing regrowth of healthy tissue.
No Onlay Component, No Stitching
Less invasion of the anterior space reduces the risk of nerve damage, shrinkage and therefore the most common factors contributing to chronic pain.
