In vitro evaluation of the permeability of prosthetic meshes as the possible cause of postoperative seroma formation.

Abstract

INTRODUCTION Seroma formation is one of the most common post operative complications related to abdominal wall hernia repairs with mesh. We hypothesized that the different biomaterials used to construct commonly used prosthetic mesh may influence permeability to fluid and affect seroma formation rates. METHODS We designed an in vitro study where a 5 cm… (More)
