Abdominal Wall Solutions

Fascial traction is the answer

Whether you are faced with the intricacies of an open abdomen, complex hernias, or the challenging task of treating newborns with abdominal wall defects, fasciotens® is here to provide standardized solutions that make treatments more efficient and less traumatic.
Open Abdomen Device


Forget about oedema in open abdomen

By increasing the intra-abdominal volume during open abdomen therapy our solution creates more space for the organs. 

  • The device helps to stabilize the patient
  • It facilitates fascial closure
  • You need fewer revision surgeries due to dynamic changes in traction


Expand your armoury for complex hernia surgery

The innovative solution stretches the abdominal wall during complex hernia treatments and helps to restore anatomical integrity.

  • Keep the lateral abdominal wall intact
  • Can be learned easily
  • Need fewer additional measures 
  • Combine it freely with other techniques


Standardize treatment of congenital abdominal wall defects in newborns

Our solution for newborns enlarges the abdominal cavity in congenital defects like gastroschisis or omphaloceles in a standardized and reproducible way.

  • Create space for the organs while stretching the abdominal wall
  • Achieve definitive closure in large defects
  • Use a professional & certified solution for newborns

fasciotens solutions

"It is amazing what fasciotens devices can achieve. This applies both to the closure of large abdominal wall hernias with loss of domain and patients with an open abdomen in the intensive care unit."

Guido Woeste


"I was able to close a 16 cm wide hernia with fasciotens and thus avoid an additional component separation. The patient complained of hardly any pain postoperatively and could be discharged after 7 days. It's an impressive result for such a large hernia."

Prof. Dr. med. Guido Woeste
Chief Physician Surgery, Hospital Agaplesion Elisabethstift Darmstadt
