Tailored Implants made of PVDF

Optimal dynamometry

Hernia surgery

Textile implants must reinforce tissue, support muscles and protect organs. They have to cushion different forces without limiting mobility – including the extreme stresses associated with coughing, sneezing and laughing. What is needed therefore is an optimal interaction between predefined stability and elasticity. We achieve the optimal balance between these two properties.


Pelvic floor surgery


Optimal dynamometry

Sling or mesh implants must reinforce, support, protect or replace muscles, organs, tissues and ligaments. When doing so they have to cushion different forces which prevail in the body, including extreme tensile loading.
Conventional slings and/or implant arms have a strong tendency to curl up under stress. If they are set in motion, this frequently leads to the feared “saw effect”.
In addition, effective porosity drops to zero and a high risk of erosion develops [21].

Shape stability and defined elasticity

DynaMesh® structures are distinguished by high shape stability with defined elasticity. They do not curl up, and they retain their shape and high effective porosity under stress [26].

Excellent Material: PVDF

The filament (“yarn”) we spin from the high-tech polymer PVDF is the first guarantee of the high quality of DynaMesh®products: a filament with many positive “natural” properties. The textile structures warp-knitted from this are the second guarantee. * Klosterhalfen, B., Pathologisches Institut, Krankenhaus Düren and Klinge, U., Universitätsklinikum Aachen «Vergleich von Bakterienadhärenzen» (2010) A comparison […]

Minimally reactive surface

If you want to minimise adverse foreign body reactions and scarring associated with textile implants, besides using biocompatible material you have to provide the least possible contact area. The following formula applies: thread surface = bioreactive surface area of the implant. Our implants have a comparatively minimal reactive surface area, which means that they cause […]

Atraumatic selvedges

DynaMesh®products are not simply cut from a flat piece of mesh. Using our special warp knitting machines we are able to produce smooth and therefore atraumatic selvedges (no “sawtooth” edges). These “soft” selvedges make it easy for the surgeon to place and adjust the implant – without irritating or even damaging the surrounding tissue. And […]

High tear propagation resistance

Conventional textile implants have a weak point: once torn or cut a zipper effect frequently occurs – the mesh continues to tear (mesh rupture). This does not happen with DynaMesh® products. The multiple meshing technique used in our warp-knitted structures does not allow this unwanted effect to occur in the first place. Tear propagation resistance […]

Effective porosity

Optimal integration During incorporation the filaments are enclosed by an internal and external granuloma. When filament distance is too small there is a risk that the whole of the intervening space will be filled with scar tissue (closed pores). The scar plates that develop in this way cause patients great discomfort. Sufficiently large pores can […]

visible in MRI

DynaMesh® visible – A better internal view without risk During MRI scans, in imaging terms the part of the body being analysed is scanned step by step and deconstructed into many “wafer-thin optical slices”. At the end, these “slices” are reconstructed to form 3-dimensional images or motion sequences (remodelling): The position of the DynaMesh® visible […]
