Histoacryl® LapFix

Atraumatic mesh fixation for laparoscopic hernia surgery.

In recent years, atraumatic mesh fixation with tissue adhesive has increasingly become the method of choice. It is the recommended mesh fixation method by the International Hernia Society Guidelines [1].

Histoacryl® Mesh Fixation is…


  • Atraumatic fixation method reported to be better tolerated by the patient than traditional fixation methods [2, 3, 4, 5].
  • Reduced risk of post-operative chronic pain compared to traditional fixation methods [3, 4, 5].
  • Decreased surgery time compared to traditional fixation methods [3, 4, 5].
  • Faster return to work compared to traditional fixation methods [4, 5].


  • Good biocompatibility and in vivo tolerance [3, 4, 5].
  • Very low rate of infections related to Histoacryl [3, 4, 5].
