The patient’s own repair of a body wall defect would be enhanced by a mechanically robust, physically tailorable, bioresorbable mesh scaffold that: (1) supports rapid host tissue ingrowth and development, while (2) reducing the complications associated with permanent synthetic and allogenic and xenogenic biological implants. A full-thickness 1-cm-diameter abdominal wall defect was made in 36 Sprague–Dawley rats, which were divided according to the implant material used; SeriFascia surgical mesh… CONTINUE READING
