Covidien Absorbatack 5mm With 30 Violet Tacks, 6/Case




The AbsorbaTack fixation device, designed for patient comfort, surgeon confidence, and peace of mind, provides strong, temporary mesh fixation while leaving no foreign material in the body over time. It requires no sharp piloting needle to deploy, eliminating the risk of inadvertent needle sticks in the OR due to the fixation device.

The AbsorbaTack™ fixation device for laparoscopic hernia repair continues to deploy tacks when the shaft is flexed over 3 cm.

Product Features:

  • Leaves no foreign material behind over time
  • No metal required for fixation
  • Supports a minimally invasive approach through 5 mm shaft and easy-to-use design
  • Provides strong temporary mesh fixation, with retention strength comparable to the ProTack™ fixation device at 1 week and 2 months in an animal model
  • Reduces the likelihood of inadvertent needle sticks in the OR, since no sharp piloting needles are required for deployment
  • Potentially fewer adhesions than permanent tack fixation based on a preclinical study
  • Violet tack with black-dot visualization feature to optimize visibility
