Caldera Medical has announced FDA clearance and the launch of Vertessa Lite, which Caldera calls a supple, lightweight, yet strong polypropylene mesh for use in abdominal sacrocolpopexy procedures for vaginal vault prolapse.

Vertessa Lite is a large-pore, monofilament, polypropylene mesh that is blue in color for exceptional visibility and handling, according to Caldera. It is the thinnest mesh indicated specifically for sacrocolpopexy procedures, yet it is 63% stronger than the market-leading mesh for sacrocolpopexy, the company said.

Vertessa Lite is available in three sizes with lengths up to 30 cm and a Y-Mesh design as well.
