WHAT DOES ‘MESH’ HERNIA REPAIR ENTAIL?
Today, a ‘mesh’ product is usually used in hernia repairs. A mesh is basically a flat sheet of prosthetic material that is used to ‘patch’ or cover a hernia. This approach has been around for over 5 decades now. Before this approach became widespread in the industry, a hernia repair clinic would suture the hernia closed. However, for 25-50% of patients, this methodology resulted to hernias returning later. There are different types of meshes available to hernia doctors today, including some that are made of biologic materials, and others that degrade over time. The most common mesh type is created from a plastic material that resembles a window screen.
INCREASED RISK OF LONG TERM COMPLICATIONS WITH MESH HERNIA REPAIR
For a long time now, mesh repair was considered the ‘gold standard’ treatment for different types of hernia. Recently, though, the widespread use of these products has been widely questioned. Side effects such as rejection, migration, chronic pain as well as risk of infection have been widely discussed in the media. Due to this negative press and first-hand accounts from patients who experienced notable problems from mesh hernia repair, many new patients are looking for alternative treatments. The better alternative is no mesh hernia repair.
