Herniamesh S.r.l., is an Italian company that produces and sells monofilament polypropylene surgical meshes, for hernia repair and for urogyneacological diseases such as urinary incontinence and pelvic floor deficiencies and a mattress overlay for the prevention and reduction in healing time of decubitus lesions.Herniamesh was founded by Prof. Ermanno Trabucco, a world-famous surgeon, inventor of the “Tension-free, sutureless Hernioplasty”. Trabucco’s initial aim was to manufacture the mesh with the ideal rigidity to be used with the surgical technique that took his name. The wide range of mesh with different mechanical characteristics, in some cases even unique, which are anatomically and functionally correct, is the consolidated result of decades of research and development by Prof. Trabucco. The last product we inserted in the catalogue is a double layer mesh, Polypropylene + expanded Polytetrafluoroethylene, for the intraperitoneal treatment of incisional hernias.
Regarding the urology field, the central portion of the meshes for female urinary incontinence, has been the Herniamesh milestone to enter this market.
The Clinical results made on our unique 3D/volumetric mattress overlay brings Herniamesh into a new promising market, vulnology. The original mesh technologies applied to both the surgeries for hernia repair and for female urinary incontinence, meet the demands for quality surgical outcomes and patient satisfaction. Our challenge is to give the Hospital players the best products which can be used with the utmost safety.
In fact, Herniamesh adheres to very rigid quality standards and prides itself in being able to understand the needs of the customers and offer quick efficient solutions. Training sessions, which are held in our own Educational Centre, are an integral part of our activities.
