GORE® BIO-A® Tissue Reinforcement for Hiatal Hernia configurations

GORE® BIO-A® Tissue Reinforcement is a unique biosynthetic web scaffold made of poly (glycolide: trimethylene carbonate) copolymer (PGA:TMC) designed for soft tissue reinforcement procedures.

GORE® BIO-A® Tissue Reinforcement is a leading product for economic value, providing cost saving benefits and quality patient outcomes. Exceptional performance and features include:

Innovative material: Uniquely designed web of biocompatible synthetic polymers that is gradually absorbed by the body

Consistent absorption: Absorbed within six to seven months, leaving no permanent material behind in the body

Quality tissue fast: Facilitates rapid cellular infiltration and vascularization
