In this study, we compared three different surgical techniques employed for UH and PUH and the influence of various meshes
(Prolene, composite IPOM, composite IPOM for the open IPOM technique) on the duration of the surgery and the postoperative hospital stay.
Since the 1950s, when tantalum meshes
were first used to repair ventral hernias,14,15 various meshes
have been used in clinical practice.3,8-13 Mesh repair helps to reduce the high hernia recurrence rate from over 50% to 20%.16 Use of a mesh to reinforce the abdominal wall is considered the gold standard in OVHR,16 since the mesh strengthens the abdominal wall defect without tension.
A New Zealand study assessed longterm surgical outcomes and complications of vaginal mesh for prolapse, and described a success rate of 74 per cent and 81 per cent for the two meshes
The effectiveness of the proposed method is demonstrated on several challenging tangled meshes
, which are produced during mesh deformation process.
More and better organized studies with larger number of patients are required to clarify the possible role of the synthetic material used in meshes
and for fixation in late deep infections .
A total of 209 transvaginal PP meshes
were placed; 194 in the anterior wall and 15 in the posterior wall.
While the scenario of absorbable and non-absorbable synthetic meshes
is varying from country to country based on the surgeons perspective in different geographies.
The most important properties of meshes
were found to be the type of filament, tensile strength and porosity.
Most composite meshes
, particularly for the treatment of incisional hernia repair, are developed in multi-layered designs.
"It is obvious from national and international studies that the rate of long-term severe complications is relatively high and we feel that the benefit/risk ratio that is now apparent does not support the use of meshes
are used to treat various conditions caused by the weakening of the pelvic floor muscles.
First generation meshes
were of heavy weight type with small pore size, greater weight: area ratio, lower elasticity and higher burst pressure.
