Plug T 4

A rigid, non-penetrating plug T4 can be utilized in the repair of indirect hernias instead of a plug T1. The plug T4 is inserted in an enlarged deep inguinal ring and placed under direct vision around the spermatic cord, under the transversalis fascia.

The T4 Plug is flat and is easy to implant in large indirect defects with a foley catheter which is placed in the deep inguinal ring. The balloon is inflated with30cc of air,displacing tissue around the chord. the plug is placed around the chord below the transversalis fascia. the balloon is deflated and the catheter is removed.

The Plug T4 may be anchored to the pre-shaped onlay mesh to reinforce the area of the internal inguinal ring in large indirect inguinal hernias.
