Gore received FDA marketing clearance for its Synecor preperitoneal biomaterial hernia repair device.

The hybrid, biosynthetic device is designed for single-stage placements through open, laparoscopic and robotic applications.

It includes three layers, a macroporous knit of dense, monofilament polytetrafluoroethylene fibers, with two surrounding layers of a bioabsorbable copolymer scaffold, to facilitate tissue ingrowth and vascularization on both sides of the device. — Cynthia Jessup
