Biodesign Rectopexy Graft

Rectopexy graft

The Biodesign® Rectopexy Graft is intended to support/reinforce soft tissue in surgical procedures for open and laparoscopic repair of rectal prolapse/rectal intussusception.


Product Benefits

Ventral rectopexy is one option for repairing rectal prolapse. Surgeons should use their own judgement to decide which procedure fits each patient.

What is the Biodesign?

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

Over the course of several months, the patient’s own healing mechanisms incorporate the SIS into the adjacent tissues until it can no longer be detected, 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.1,4,5

The Biodesign Rectopexy Graft is intended to support/reinforce soft tissue in surgical procedures for open and laparoscopic repair of rectal prolapse/rectal intussusception.


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