BACKGROUND Despite the significant risk of infection, prosthetic graft materials have become indispensable for incisional hernia repair. Composite and lightweight grafts have been developed to overcome adhesion and rigidity. The aim of this study was to evaluate in vitro S. epidermidis and S. aureus adherence to these new generation grafts, which have modified composition and textile properties. MATERIALS AND METHODS In this experimental study, sterile samples of multifilament polypropylene… CONTINUE READING
