Material: This device is molded from PLG, a bioabsorbable copolymer.
Micro Features: The anchor weighs 0.025g.
Description: The bioabsorbable anchor is used in a fascia closure device that aims to minimize port site herniation following laparoscopic abdominal surgery. The reduced IV loss in these PLG wall anchors is critical in ensuring optimal wound healing. MTD’s extensive knowledge with micromolding bioabsorbable resins allows less than 5% IV loss to be achieved.

Medical micro injection molding is what we do. And all we do.
We’ve made millions of micromolded medical parts. We have 15 years of expertise in working with bioabsorbable materials and problem-solving the most challenging micro part designs.
Bioabsorbable materials are very sensitive – and often very expensive. A successful bioabsorbable product will not only have premium part quality, but will also be a result of optimized runner size, which minimizes cost. Bioabsorbable devices also require more careful validation steps to achieve minimal and consistent IV loss and ensure superior functionality and capabilities.
