ULTRAPRO ADVANCED Hero

Features & Benefits

  • Designed for comfort

    Designed for Comfort

    Physiologically designed for comfortable healing. ULTRAPRO ADVANCED Mesh is flexible to approximate the natural movement of the abdominal wall, with 2:1 stretch1-3* A unique knitted mesh construction promotes good tissue ingrowth/integration.4†

  • Designed for handling

    Designed for Handling

    Designed for exceptional intraoperative handling. ULTRAPRO ADVANCED Mesh has an increased initial stiffness for easier handling.7‡ Designed to spring open for easier deployment in laparoscopic repairs. Comes packaged flat, without folds, for easier positioning. Blue stripes facilitate orienting and positioning of the mesh.8 Mesh is trimmable based on surgeon’s discretion.8

  • Strong and lasting

    Strong and Lasting

    Balanced strength for strong and lasting repair.** ULTRAPRO ADVANCED Mesh has high suture pullout and tensile strength.3 ULTRAPRO ADVANCED Mesh withstands ~2x maximum intraabdominal pressure.5-6 No bulge visible in a preclinical study at 28 days and 91 days.4†

  • Proven technology

    Proven Technology

    Built on the technology of ULTRAPRO® Partially Absorbable Lightweight Mesh. ULTRAPRO Mesh is proven to reduce patients’ pain and movement limitation.  In two studies from the International Hernia Mesh Registry (IHMR), patients receiving hernia repair with ULTRAPRO Mesh reported significant improvement in pain and movement limitations from baseline at one year postsurgery9,10§//
