Minnesota Medical Development's Rebound HRD:
This article was originally published in Clinica
The Rebound HRD hernia repair device developed by Minnesota Medical Development has been granted 510(k) clearance by the US FDA. The Rebound HRD is a self-expanding surgical mesh device composed of Nitinol, designed for the laparoscopic repair and/or reinforcement of both inguinal and ventral hernias. It conforms to the anatomy while providing stability, eliminating the need for anchoring, which, in turn, minimises patient post-op discomfort and the risk of nerve/blood vessel injury. It can also be used for other soft tissue defects where weakness exists and where the support of a non-absorbable material is preferred. The Plymouth, Minnesota company CE-marked the product for sale in the EU in June (see Clinica No 1261, p 22).
