First PTFE-based GORE INFINIT Mesh introduced

W. L. Gore & Associates announced the introduction of GORE INFINIT Mesh, the first and only 100% monofilament, large-pore knitted surgical mesh constructed entirely of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE).

The combination of the remarkable chemical inertness of the PTFE polymer in a large-pore structure of GORE INFINIT Mesh offers surgeons and their patients advantages over polypropylene and polyester meshes. The product is engineered to minimize foreign body reaction and maximize long-term patient comfort and quality of life with performance that lasts.

In the reconstruction of hernias and other soft tissue deficiencies, reducing the risk of pain-related complications means minimizing chronic foreign body reaction–the adverse impact on the body's own natural healing process.

It is essential for a durable, comfortable, long-term repair that is free from complications, such as decreased abdominal wall compliance, chronic pain, and nerve entrapment. Foreign body reaction depends not only on the material, but also on the total surface area in contact with the host tissues. GORE INFINIT Mesh combines the optimal material and structure to provide a naturally low chronic foreign body reaction.

"Persistent foreign body reaction is associated with increased pain and patient discomfort," said Brent D. Matthews, MD, FACS, Associate Professor, Surgery, Washington University School of Medicine. "By reducing the surface area in contact with the host tissue and using medically inert materials such as PTFE, we can increase our chances for good patient outcomes."

GORE INFINIT Mesh is made entirely of PTFE—a chemically inert medical polymer—for long-term biocompatibility and minimal chronic foreign body reaction. Gore's PTFE makes GORE INFINIT Mesh a soft, flexible and conformable product that is strong and reliable. In fact, Gore's PTFE has been proven reliable in more than 25 million implants.

GORE INFINIT Mesh is knitted in a large pore configuration with "StableLink" technology to facilitate handling and mesh stability during implantation. The structure provides less surface area that encourages complete tissue ingrowth. In addition, a solid monofilament fiber helps reduce the risk of infection by reducing potential bacterial colonization sites associated with multifilament polyester yarns.

"The material and structure combination of GORE INFINIT Mesh alters the cell-material interaction creating a better tissue response, ultimately maximizing long-term patient comfort and quality of life," said Peter Roeber, product specialist, Gore. "GORE INFINIT Mesh is another great innovation from Gore."
