Polypropylene Mesh is constructed of knitted filaments of extruded polypropylene identical in composition to that used in UNILENE Polypropylene Sutures. This material, when used as a suture, has been reported to be nonreactive and to retain its strength indefinitely in clinical use.
Hernia Mesh is knitted by a process which inter) inks each fiber junction and which provides for elasticity in both directions. This construction permits the mesh to be cut into any desired shape or size without unraveling. This bi-directional elastic property allows adaptation to various stresses encountered in the body.
