BACKGROUND Implantation of meshes in a contaminated environment can be complicated by mesh infection and adhesion formation. METHODS The caecal ligation and puncture model was used to induce peritonitis in 144 rats. Seven commercially available meshes were implanted intraperitoneally: six non-absorbable meshes, of which three had an absorbable coating, and one biological mesh. Mesh infection, intra-abdominal abscess formation, adhesion formation, incorporation and shrinkage were evaluated… CONTINUE READING
