Prosthetic materials originally used to treat hernias were biological, fascia, tendons, muscles, but inconsistent results have led the scientific community to continue medical research. Synthetic materials were the next step but this met with a strong opposition from conservative surgery. Evidence of improving outcomes and constant evolution of these materials by forcing them now as the main therapeutic resource.
If initial monopolist currently polypropylene materials such as Gore-Tex TM bring the additional advantage able to be used in very large parietal defects in direct contact with the intestines completely biocompatible and especially adherent to them. It is true that polypropylene shows a big advantage, resistance to infection and the possibility of healing in perfect condition even if a contaminated wound, a granuloma thread for example.
Regardless of each mesh structure acts as a matrix, as a support, which builds lasting scar final major contribution to net the parietal defect elimination in the blood thus allowing sustainable recovery and postoperative pain-free. The biocompatibility of these materials is outstanding and integration among parietal structures is good so exciting after a while the only indication of this net is highlighting its ultrasound. Cost prices of these materials decreased progressively, this allowing, with excellent results while imposition prosthetic procedures as the main line therapist in hernias and eventrations.
Any subject related to the use of these materials intratamentul surgical herniated Morice as today are no longer justified in the face of overwhelmingly large number of cases resolved by these methods over the years consistently positive results speak for themselves away.
