  • “Specifically indicated for laparoscopic and open surgery for the repair of direct or indirect inguinal, femoral, umbilical and incisional hernias; rectal, vaginal and apical prolapses; and parietal reinforcement of tissues and abdominal wall repair.”
  • “Light, strong and totally biocompatible because of its inertness and immunity to corrosion by all body fluids and tissue, titanium is one of few materials that naturally match the requirements for implantation in the human body. TiMESH’s unique design combines the proven benefits of titanium with the comfort and flexibility of polypropylene. Cutting-edge nanotechnology is used to develop TiMESH with its ideal surgical mesh properties, including biocompatibility, resistance to infection and the ability to be recognized by the body as a solid titanium implant.”
  • Received FDA approval in March 2004
