Good intentions

Watchful and NFG12, what do you think about the math that resulted in this conclusion? When discussing complex subjects it’s very important that the “facts” are real, and relevant to the discussion. This math seems off unless the person used weight instead of volume for the comparison. Stainless steel sutures compared to polypropylene mesh. 8 gm/cm^3 versus 0.9 gm/cm^3. About a 9 to 1 weight ratio.

Even then, it seems off. “Facts” can be twisted.

“A friend did some math and said with all the suturing—you get as much plastic with shouldice as you do with mesh.”
