  • Davol 3DMax™ Light Mesh

    The distinct 3D shape of 3DMAX Light Mesh was developed by a laparoscopic surgeon to conform to the inguinal anatomy and meet the specific challenges of laparsocopic hernia repair.

    Features and benefits:

    • Contour minimises buckling that may be seen with flat mesh
    • Design may reduce the need for fixation
    • Sealed edge and medial orientation marker facilitate accurate placement and positioning
    • Built in memory maintains shape
    • Lighter weight monofilament polypropylene mesh
    • Large pore knit provides excellent visibility
  • Davol Perfix® Plug

    The Perfix Plug is designed for use in a tension-free preperitoneal repair technique.

    Quick, simple and effective 3-dimensional groin hernia repair.

    Available in four sizes, two per box or six per box.

  • Davol SorbaFix™ Absorbable Fixation System

    The SorbaFix Absorbable Fixation System is unique from its design, to its delivery, to its easy to see colour.  It is indicated for prosthetic mesh fixation and the approximation of soft tissue in laparoscopic and open surgeries.  The system is pre-loaded with either 15 or 30 absorbable fasteners that are deployed via a 5mm, low-profile delivery system.

    Benefits of the SorbaFix Absorbable Fixation System:

    • Threaded hollow core allows for tissue in-growth through interior of fastener
    • The consistent diameter of the threads from head to tip and fastener length are designed to maximise tissue engagement
    • Obturator with piloting tip accurately pilots fastener through mesh and tissue
    • Atraumatic blunt tip fastener with smooth head and no exposed points.
  • EndoStim® LES Stimulation System

    EndoStim® therapy is a minimally invasive treatment option for GERD patients suffering from severe symptoms. EndoStim® therapy is designed to use low energy electrical stimulation to restore the function of the lower esophageal sphincter (LES).

    Patient Testimonial:
    For many years I suffered the extreme discomfort associated with chronic heartburn and regurgitation.  Even when I was strictly controlling my diet and taking daily medication, I was regularly experiencing pain and discomfort, resulting in many nights of poor sleep and generally feeling miserable after every meal.
    Since I received the EndoStim device, my GORD symptoms have almost completely gone and I can now enjoy eating food again.  There have been no adverse side effects and I am no longer reliant on daily medication.
    The EndoStim therapy has given me my life back”.

  • KLS Martin – marSeal5® plus Sealing Instruments

    marSeal5® plus – A new dimension in intelligent vessel sealing.

    The marSeal5® plus rings in the new generation of bipolar sealing instruments from KLS Martin.  It has been systematically refined and tailored to meet the needs of users in terms of ergonomics and the ease with which it can be taken apart and cleaned – yes, the hand piece is reusable.

    The corresponding current – SealSafe® IQ is supplied by the high frequency generator maxium.  Together, they form a bipolar sealing system that converts endogenous structural proteins like collagen and elastin in such a way that veins, arteries and tissue bundles are permanently and reliably sealed.  By optimising the sealing process, sealing time is up to 25% faster.  The marSeal5® plus system features an integrated blade (singlue use) that is used to cut through tissue in the centre of the sealing area immediately after sealing.  All this without changing the instrument.

  • KLS Martin – maXium® Electrosurgery Generator

    maXium® – the unit for all applications offering a wide range of precisely regulated currents, enabling you to choose between a great number of applications, such as monopolar and bipolar cutting and coagulation.  Besides the standard current types PureCut and BlendCut, you have additional applicationspecific currents at your disposal.

    • Easy handling – perfect result
    • Plug and Play with IQ
    • Maxi-display – maximum sight
    • Always the appropriate current type at hand
    • Perfect cutting results
    • Preselection of medical discipline
  • Lone Star Retractor System

    Reusable and Disposable Retractors

    Including the new Anterior/Posterior/Sling Retractor designed to meet the evolving needs of vaginal surgery.

    Effective – dramatically increases visibility when used in conjunction with Lone Star elastic stays.

    Flexible – articulating shapes adapt to any region of the anatomy.

    Organised – slotted ring retains elastic stay hooks in an orderly fashion and minimises surgery site clutter.

    A wide variety of elastic stays

    Effective – dramatically increases visibility when used with Lone Star retractor rings.

    Reliable – durable, sinlge-use elastic stays maintain tension tirelessly.

    Versatile – a wide variety of shapes and features allow customisation to specific surgery needs.

  • Matrix Surgical Drop Control Device

    Disposable device consisting of 2.5ml syringe with luer connection which is connected to a catheter with a bevelled needle. This allows application of Glubran®2 Surgical Glue drop by drop during open surgery.  The capillary section lumen catheter allows control of the application to lay Glubran®2 Surgical Glue in a thin layer in laparoscopic surgery, whenever it is necessary to get haemostasis, adhesion, sealing and to strengthen sutures.

  • Matrix Surgical Flexible Small Spray Device

    FLEXIBLE SMALL SPRAY DEVICE

    This system allows application of Glubran®2 Surgical Glue as a spray in surgical laparotomic, laparoscopic and thoracoscopic procedures.

    A disposable device with packaging in a double sterile pack, with a gas autonomous propulsion system.  The use of the  Small Spray Device for Glubran®2 Surgical Glue is indicated to obtain haemostatic action even on small surfaces, whenever it is necessary to achieve aerostasis, to seal and strengthen suture lines and to apply the product in hidden and hard to reach areas.

  • Matrix Surgical Flexible Spray Device

    Flexible Spray Device

    This system allows application of Glubran®2 Surgical Glue as a spray in surgical laparotomic, laparoscopic and thoracoscopic procedures.  A disposable device with packaging in a double sterile pack with a gas autonomous propulsion system.  The use of Flexible Spray Device for Glubran®2 Surgical Glue is indicated to obtain haemostatic action on large surfaces, whenever it is necessary to achieve aerostasis and more generally, to seal and strengthen suture lines.

  • Matrix Surgical Glubran® 2

    Glubran®2 is a synthetic surgical glue, CE certificated for internal and external use, with haemostatic, adhesive, sealer and bacteriostatic properties.  When used in a moist environment, it quickly polymerizes into a thin elastic film which has high tensile strength and firmly adheres to the anatomy of the tissue on which it is applied.  Once ploymerized, Glubran®2 acts as a bioinert material.

  • Pall LaparoShield Laparoscopic Smoke Filtration System

    The Risks of Surgical Smoke

    • Surgical smoke is generated from the burning of proteins and lipids in tissue by laser and electrocautery equipment.
    • Surgical smoke contains potentially hazardous chemicals, particles, viable cells and viruses.

    The Pall LaparoShield allows safe and rapid evacuation of smoke throughout the surgical procedure.
