They see the FDA as supporting the use of mesh. Not really one of the FDA’s original purposes, promoting products.
“Mesh repair is largely acknowledged as better than basic suture repair in most countries. Tensile strength and porosity are factors that influence mesh’s weight and biocompatibility. Tensile strength is substantially lower than previously assumed, and lightweight meshes are regarded to be preferable due to their enhanced flexibility and less discomfort. According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), utilizing hernia mesh may enhance a patient’s results after the surgery, and recovery time may be shorter than with other therapy options.”
