Bard Brand PerFix Plug Features and Benefits: The PerFix plug has a tapered shape that eases its insertion into the hernia defect. Also, general anaesthesia is not required, the peritoneal cavity is not entered, and there is no postoperative ileus or nausea.
Patients have less pain Clinical experience indicates that 75% of patients need nothing stronger than non-prescription medicine post surgery. Patients are able to leave the hospital shortly after surgery, and are encouraged to resume normal activities the next day.
Virtually eliminates recurrence At the Hernia Centre in Freehold, NJ, 2 733 mesh-plug hernioplasties were completed between 1989 and 1995. Of those, 85% were primary and 15% were recurrent.
Six years of patient follow-up revealed a recurrence rate in primary repairs of less than 1%. No other mesh product stands up to the Bard PerFix plug.
The inner petals of the Bard PerFix plug ensure that there is adequate support when inserted into the defect. These petals also allow the PerFix plug to respond resiliently to movement, therefore providing greater patient comfort.
As well, these petals have fluted edges that expand and contract.
Charges range from $0.00 upwards based upon carrier and priority selected during checkout.
