FDA Clears Gore’s Preperitoneal Biomaterial Hernia Repair Device

June 7, 2017

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
