HOW FASCIOTENS CAME TO BE
fasciotens was developed by surgeons for surgeons. The crucial idea came to the two founders, Dr. Lill and Dr. Beyer, during the treatment of a young patient with an open abdomen in whom abdominal closure was impossible.
The development is based on a simple idea: The fascia retraction, which was almost inevitable in the course of time, should be counteracted with ventral traction. To this end, fasciotens developed a prototype that would keep the fascia of the open abdomen under tension with the help of an external support and thus prevent the abdominal wall from retracting. The prototype was optimized together with renowned clinics over several development steps up to the market launch and is available today as fasciotens®Abdomen.
