I hope this is my last post here, but I keep finding more. Medtronic’s product portfolio catalog contains all of their mesh products and uses the proper words in the descriptions. Apparently, for whatever reason, the Progrip polypropylene mesh is not specified for laparoscopic procedures. Maybe it’s not flexible enough for the canula.??? Why would it be okay for open but not for laparoscopic? Either of the Progrips, polyester or polypropylene, is specified for open repair.
Anyway, it’s interesting reading. Strange also, that they call out “open inguinal mesh” but not “laparoscopic inguinal mesh”.
