Project Description

ACell, manufacturer of MatriStem® Surgical Matrix Device, requested a series of images to teach surgical technique utilizing their mesh during hiatal hernia repair. The step-by-step guide was to end with final placement images used for advertising. The representative images show proper orienting of the mesh material for preparation of the graft; a step from reapproximation of the crura; and final placement when incorporating partial fundoplication technique. Multiple versions of the Guide were created to showcase differing surgical technique preferences, and final placement with and without gastric fundoplication.
