IMPLANTABLE MESH

TheraMesh™

Prefabricated, bio-absorbable implantable mesh embedded with TheraSeed® or AgX100® for permanent implantation

  • Provides a flexible brachytherapy platform that may be contoured to implant surfaces
  • Low energy brachytherapy seeds with rapid dose fall off to minimize dose to normal structures
  • TheraSeed – Pd 103: 16.9 day half life; 20-23 keV principle energy
  • AgX100 – I 125: 59.4 day half life; 27-35 keV principle energy
  • An alternative delivery system for radiotherapy to tumor beds1
  • May be suitable for anticipated close surgical margins and where other treatment options are limited1
  • May be advantageous when the target volume is irregular and complex and critical normal structures are adjacent to the tumor implant2
  • Permanent implant allows for a higher total radiation dose to be delivered to the target volume2
