Tela-Bio’s Ovitex is the latest biologic to hit the market. It is made from sheep intestine, but the premise is the same – strip the tissue down to its basic collagen and assume that the human body will remodel it into human tissue.
Dr. Towfigh and Dr. Szotek are both proponents of Ovitex for inguinal hernia repair. Dr. Szotek presents at the big meetings nad has made youtube videos.
Thanks Good Intentions. With me being a simpleton I was just thinking living or ex living tissue would be better than an artificial product ie mesh.
I’d also like to add I think all your points are very compelling, on each thread, not just this. So I do hope you keep posting – even though I dont understand every single one!!! Maybe do a simpletons guide for people like me!
