Fasteners, Helical, Surgical Mesh
Definition : Helical fasteners designed for mesh fixation (fastening) using laparoscopic techniques. These fasteners consist of a helical, springlike device, typically 4 mm in diameter and with a depth of penetration of 3.8 mm. Surgical mesh helical fasteners are threaded spirally to penetrate tissue and body structures using an appropriate instrument; they are used in laparoscopic herniorrhaphy procedures (e.g., to fix the mesh to the pubic bone) to prevent mesh migration.
