Retain & Shield Delicate Tissue & Organs

The FISH® effectively retains the omentum and viscera during closure of the peritoneal cavity. It provides added anchorage and retentive power to speed closure and significantly reduce the risk of nicks and punctures. That means less trauma for patients and less liability for surgeons.

Leave Nothing Behind

The presence of the ring during abdominal closure is an effective indicator of a retained instrument. The pliable, sterile, latex-free material folds into a soft narrow roll for easy removal and disposal.

Protect Patients of All Sizes

The FISH®comes in eight sizes from pediatric to the jumbo size. The Jumbo has a metal insert strip for an added measure of support.
