SafeStitch Medical®, Inc AMID™ Hernia Fixation Device

The AMIDTM Hernia Fixation Device is a surgical stapler for use during an open inguinal hernia repair using the Lichtenstein method. The design allows for fixation of mesh using staples instead of traditional sutures, drastically reducing mesh insertion time. The staples are delivered in parallel to femoral vessels possibly avoiding vascular injury. Mesh manipulators serve to assist in positioning surgical mesh prior to fixation, requiring less resection of tissue.
