Disclaimers:
Indications and Important Safety Information: OviTex Reinforced Tissue Matrix is intended for use as a surgical mesh to reinforce and/or repair soft tissue where weakness exists.
Indications for use include the repair of hernias and/or abdominal wall defects that require the use of reinforcing or bridging material to obtain the desired surgical outcome.
Caution: Federal (US) law restricts this device to sale by or on order of a physician.
Do not use OviTex in patients known to be sensitive to materials of ovine (sheep) origin. Use of OviTex in this patient population may result in an allergic or immunological reaction.
The following adverse events have been reported for surgical repair of hernias (with or without the use of surgical mesh): pain, infection, hernia recurrence, adhesion, bowel obstruction, bleeding, fistula, seroma, perforation, mesh migration, and mesh contraction. For additional important safety information, please see the OviTex Instructions for Use. Healthcare professionals must use their own clinical judgment in evaluating appropriate treatment options for a particular patient. Treatment of a specific patient should be based on individual needs and the medical care deemed necessary by the patient’s treating physician and institutional protocols. Always refer to the package insert, product label, and/or instructions for use before using any TELA Bio product. Products may not be available in all markets because product availability is subject to the regulatory and/or medical practices in individual markets.
