Previously, in order to close complex hernias, time-consuming abdominal wall reconstruction procedures were required. fasciotens®Hernia makes it possible to stretch the abdominal wall intraoperatively in approx. 30 minutes via standardised,controlled traction.
Thanks to the (CE-)certified fasciotens®Hernia, a mean gain in length of approx. 10 cm can be achieved with maximum preservation of tissue, which makes it possible to preserve the integrity of the abdominal wall and to close the hernia directly and safely.1)

- .Quantifiable gain in fascial length
What our customers say:
“We have experience with thirty fascia traction procedures performed so far with the fasciotens device in large loss-of-domain hernias with widths up to 40 cm (W III +++): 28 hernias could be closed primarily without tension after 30 minutes of intraoperative traction with 12 kg.
In 2 cases with a width of 40 cm and 25 cm (in this case, however, with considerable scar bone formation), we were also able to achieve a stretch gain of approx. 10 cm in each case, but were then able to close the abdominal wall by means of additional transversus abdominis release (TAR) and use of a large sublay mesh as well as a bridging mesh.
Fascia traction with fasciotens presents itself to us as a simple procedure for the treatment of large loss-of-domain hernias and helps to avoid complicated and complicating component separations in some cases.”
“With fasciotens I was able to close a 16 cm wide hernia without further component separation. The patient complained of hardly any pain postoperatively and could be discharged after 7 days. This is an impressive result for such a large hernia. In particular, the risk of a postoperative wound complication is significantly lower due to the much smaller wound area compared to the transversus abdominis release. After this experience, I am absolutely convinced of the effectiveness and benefit of fasciotens in the treatment of complex abdominal wall hernias.”
