Yeah, I’m not particularly disappointed that prolene sutures were used instead of steel. I think it’s a really minor aspect in the scheme of things. It’s very rare that this is the thing that causes issues. It’s typically other things about the procedure that get you.
By the way, the problems related to prolene mesh aren’t so much the amount of prolene used in mesh vs sutures. It’s the surface area, the tissues that the material comes into contact with, and other aspects which are specific to mesh (fixation, movement, folding, etc.)
