  • 3. 

    Which of the following companies manufacturers XCM?

    • A.

      LifeCell

    • B.

      MTF

    • C.

      Kensey Nash

    • D.

      Strattice

    Correct Answer
    C. Kensey Nash
    Explanation
    Kensey Nash is the correct answer because it is the only company listed among the options that manufactures XCM. The other companies mentioned, LifeCell, MTF, and Strattice, do not manufacture XCM.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    The OPTRIX process is used to make XCM Biologic.  The OPTRIX process is gentle, 

    • A.

      Proprietary

    • B.

      Selective

    • C.

      Uses antibiotics

    • D.

      Used by other biologic mesh manufacturers

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Proprietary
    B. Selective
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Proprietary, Selective". The explanation for this answer is that the OPTRIX process used to make XCM Biologic is proprietary, meaning it is a unique and exclusive process owned by the company. Additionally, the process is selective, which means it carefully chooses and targets specific components or materials to create the biologic.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    During a component seperation, the ________ muscle is seperated from the ________ muscle to provide additional medial advancement of the Rectus Abdominis muscle.

    • A.

      Rectus Abdominis, Pyramidalis

    • B.

      Rectus Abdominis, Internal Oblique

    • C.

      Linea Alba, Rectus Abdominis

    • D.

      External Oblique, Internal Oblique

    Correct Answer
    D. External Oblique, Internal Oblique
    Explanation
    During a component separation, the External Oblique muscle is separated from the Internal Oblique muscle to provide additional medial advancement of the Rectus Abdominis muscle. This separation allows for the Rectus Abdominis muscle to be moved closer to the midline, which can be beneficial in certain surgical procedures or abdominal wall reconstructions. The Internal Oblique muscle is located underneath the External Oblique muscle, and by separating these two muscles, the Rectus Abdominis muscle can be advanced further medially.

  • 6. 

    XCM Biologic is a synthetic mesh.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    XCM Biologic is not a synthetic mesh.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    XCM Biologic is the only mesh that offers the OPTRIX process which maintains the _________ and inherent strength of the dermis.

    • A.

      ECM (Extracellular Matrix) components

    • B.

      DNA

    • C.

      Alpha-Gal Antigen

    • D.

      Viral infections

    Correct Answer
    A. ECM (Extracellular Matrix) components
    Explanation
    The correct answer is ECM (Extracellular Matrix) components. XCM Biologic is the only mesh that offers the OPTRIX process, which maintains the ECM components and inherent strength of the dermis. This suggests that the mesh is designed to preserve the natural structure and properties of the dermis by incorporating ECM components. This can potentially enhance the effectiveness and durability of the mesh in surgical procedures.

  • 8. 

    Multiple correct answers to this question may apply: Strattice is the market leader for biologic mesh, but XCM

    • A.

      Has higher tensile strength versus Strattice

    • B.

      Has more resistance to stretch versus Strattice

    • C.

      Does not compete with Strattice because XCM is synthetic

    • D.

      Has equivalent suture retention to Strattice

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Has higher tensile strength versus Strattice
    B. Has more resistance to stretch versus Strattice
    D. Has equivalent suture retention to Strattice
    Explanation
    The given answer states that XCM has higher tensile strength and more resistance to stretch compared to Strattice. This suggests that XCM is a stronger and more durable material than Strattice. Additionally, the answer states that XCM has equivalent suture retention to Strattice, indicating that both materials are equally effective in retaining sutures. The answer also mentions that XCM is synthetic and does not compete with Strattice, implying that they serve different purposes or have different applications.

  • 9. 

    XCM Biologic is terminally sterilized.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    XCM Biologic being terminally sterilized means that it undergoes a process that completely eliminates all viable microorganisms, ensuring its sterility. This is an important characteristic for medical products like XCM Biologic, as it reduces the risk of contamination and infection when used in medical procedures. Therefore, the statement "XCM Biologic is terminally sterilized" is true.

    The most appropriate definition of a Hernia is:

    • A.

      A membrane that forms the lining of the abdominal cavity

    • B.

      A weakness in the abdominal wall causing a protrusion of the internal contents (bowel, intestines)

    • C.

      The most superficial muscle you encounter when dissecting the abdominal wall

    • D.

      A materials resistance to stretch

    Correct Answer
    B. A weakness in the abdominal wall causing a protrusion of the internal contents (bowel, intestines)
    Explanation
    A hernia is a condition characterized by a weakness in the abdominal wall, which leads to the protrusion of internal contents such as the bowel and intestines. This weakness can be caused by factors such as genetics, aging, obesity, or previous surgeries. When the abdominal muscles are unable to hold the internal organs in place, they can push through the weakened area, resulting in a visible bulge or lump. Hernias can be painful and may require surgical intervention to repair the weakened abdominal wall and return the organs to their proper position.

    Young's Modulus describes a materials resistance to stretch.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Young's Modulus is a measure of how much a material resists deformation in response to an applied force. It specifically quantifies a material's resistance to stretching or elongation. Therefore, the statement that "Young's Modulus describes a material's resistance to stretch" is true.

    Rate this question:

    The __________ is the membrane that forms the lining of the abdominal cavity.

    • A.

      Biologic Mesh

    • B.

      Peritoneum

    • C.

      Rectus Abdominis

    • D.

      ECM

    Correct Answer
    B. Peritoneum
    Explanation
    The peritoneum is the membrane that lines the abdominal cavity. It is a thin, transparent layer that covers the organs in the abdominal cavity and provides protection and support. The peritoneum also produces a fluid that lubricates the organs and allows them to move smoothly against each other. It plays a crucial role in the functioning of the digestive system and is essential for maintaining the integrity and function of the abdominal organs.
