Mesh, Polymeric

Definition : Mesh made of a biocompatible polymer with appropriate mechanical characteristics. Polymeric mesh is made of either absorbable materials (e.g., polyglycolic acid, polycarbonate) or nonabsorbable materials (e.g., polypropylene, polyethylene, Dacron, nylon). Nonabsorbable polymeric mesh is used mainly in surgical procedures (e.g., reinforcement of incisional and groin hernia repair, treatment of pelvic floor prolapse); absorbable mesh is used mainly for temporary implants and/or as temporary scaffold for tissue regeneration (i.e., tissue engineering).
