Biodesign Hiatal Hernia Graft

Hiatal hernia graft

The Biodesign Hiatal Hernia Graft is used for implantation to reinforce soft tissues where weakness exists, during hiatal hernia repair.


Product Benefits

The Biodesign Hiatal Hernia Graft is supports weakened soft tissue during open or laparoscopic surgery to repair hiatal hernias. Once implanted, the natural composition of SIS (small intestinal submuscoa) allows for the patient’s healing mechanisms to deposit cells and collagen during cellular and extracellular matrix metabolism.

What is Biodesign?

Biodesign Advanced Tissue Repair products are sourced from porcine small intestinal submucosa (SIS).

Over the course of 7 to 17 months, depending on the implant location, the patient’s tissues completely incorporate the SIS resulting in new, remodelled tissue.1-2

SIS technology

SIS is derived from porcine small intestinal submucosa, a naturally occurring ECM (extracellular matrix) located between the mucosal and muscular layers of the small intestine. A complex organization of collagen and other molecules that forms a fibrous matrix, the submucosal layer of the intestine is responsible for most of its strength.

SIS provides a natural scaffold that allows the body to restore itself through site-specific tissue remodelling.

Tissue Remodelling

Tissue remodelling is a complex natural process that involves the recruitment of cells, the renewal of tissue composition, and the reinforcement of structural tissue architecture.3

As the body heals, SIS is gradually remodelled and integrated into the body, leaving behind organized tissue that provides long-term strength.4,5

The Biodesign Hiatal Hernia Graft is used for implantation to reinforce soft tissues where weakness exists, during hiatal hernia repair.

This graft is supplied sterile in peel-open packages and is intended for one-time use.


The graft is derived from a porcine source and should not be used for patients with known sensitivity to porcine material.
