Utility of Non-Absorbable Knitted Surgical Polypropylene Mesh - A Post Market Clinical Follow Up Study
Abstract: Use of meshes is a current standard in the hernioplasties performed these days. With several varieties of meshes available in the surgeon?s armamentarium, polypropylene meshes are one of the common meshes used. Though meshes have been in use since last few decades, there are known complications associated with their use too, including foreign body reaction and infection. This post market clinical follow up study was done to assess the clinical performance, safety and acceptability of the Non-Absorbable Knitted Surgical Polypropylene Mesh and to determine if any undesirable events occurred. A total of 51 subjects participated in the study. All the subjects benefitted out of the surgeries where Non-Absorbable Knitted Surgical Polypropylene Mesh was used with excellent intended results. Additionally, no adverse events related to the use of the material were recorded in the study.
