What is Hernia Mesh?
More than a million a hernia repairs are done annually in the U.S. Hernia mesh is used in the most of them.
Hernia mesh is more like a medical apparatus, which is used by surgeons to patch, plug, or reinforce their closure, a weak portion of a muscle, or connective tissue during surgery. Hernia mesh devices are made from synthetic materials or animal tissue.
Synthetic surgical mesh may be made from absorbable or non-absorbable materials or a combination of both. Surgical mesh made from animal tissue (usually intestines or skin) is absorbable. Absorbable mesh degrades and loses strength over time. New tissue growth over time is expected to strengthen the repair when absorbable mesh is used.
Non-absorbable mesh remains in the body indefinitely. It is a permanent implant.
