Adhesion formation of a polyvinylidenfluoride/polypropylene mesh for intra-abdominal placement in a rodent animal model


Effective laparoscopic ventral herniorrhaphy mandates the use of an intraperitoneal mesh. Visceral adhesions and shrinkage of prosthetics may complicate repairs. The aim of this study was to compare adhesion formation, mesh shrinkage and tissue ingrowth after intra-abdominal placement of a novel two-component monofilament mesh structure made of… (More)
