The SERASIS® PA MR implant, the SERASIS® PA MR band, is woven from synthetic polypropylene threads, coated with an absorbable layer of glycolid and ε-caprolactone.
Partially absorbable polypropylene mesh is absorbed by the body in about 90-120 days.
It has a length of 45 cm.
The field of use of the band is urology and gynecology.
The strip must be inserted with a correct tension and without being torsioned/twisted. The tension is adjusted using the ends of the strip.
- During healing, the formation of the scar takes place particularly in the areas around the edges of the band, where the cells can grow in the net and can even completely cover the band.
- The special braided structure offers a light weight to the band, macro-porous, with a good strength and a guaranteed stretching strength.
- This particular structure of the band ensures a special suppleness, which determines an easy adaptation and a safe adhesion to the tissues.
- The blue color helps the band to be easily distinguished from body tissues (allows MRI viewing).
After performing the surgery at the pelvic level, depending on the complexity of the operation, the patient should avoid lifting heavy objects, practicing sports with intense effort and sexual contact.
When using these implants in the case of young patients whose growth process has not ended or in patients who are pregnant or planning a pregnancy, it should be borne in mind that textile implants have limited elasticity and do not grow simultaneously with the body.
It is not allowed to use the urological or gynecological implant, pelvic floor, in patients with urinary tract infections or relative upper urinary tract obstruction.
