Abstract

See full text

The invention relates to an anatomical prosthesis adapted specially for the inguinal region and intended for the repair of inguinal hernias, especially by a laparoscopic route. It comprises a first and a second plate, each comprising a porous and flexible prosthetic material, and these being connected to one another along a connection line by a connection means. The two plates are asymmetrical in relation to one another, and, in a deployed configuration of the prosthesis, the second plate has at least one undulated developed shape, and anatomical so as to match the general shape of the lower inguinal structures, and correspondingly the connection line has at least one undulated curved shape, the generatrix describing this developed shape and passing through the connection line being directed at an aperture angle .theta. at most equal to 150.degree. relative to the plane of the first plate.
