Parietex ProGrip™ Self-fixating Mesh
In hernia repair, surgeons want to balance security and patient comfort with ease of use. Parietex ProGrip™ self-fixating mesh delivers all three. Its advanced microgrip technology provides immediate fixation2 of the entire mesh surface for a secure repair and even distribution of tension for patient comfort. Designed for ease of use, the resorbable polylactic acid (PLA) microgrips enable surgeons to position and place the mesh in under 60 seconds,1 without the use of additional fixation.2 Surgeons and patients can depend on a secure and comfortable repair.

Results based on a published study of the Parietene™ (polypropylene) version of the ProGrip™ product family. The Parietex (polyester) ProGrip™ results may vary due to the base material difference. Parietene ProGrip™ mesh is not marketed in the U.S.
2. Additional fixation is left to the surgeon’s discretion.
