Thanks for sharing the video on Parietex. In my opinion, it is a very very misleading video and I disagree with much of its content.
A) Parietex ProGrip is not impossible to remove. It is no different to remove than any other mesh. I have yet to find a mesh that is “impossible” to remove. And I perform more mesh removal than almost every other surgeon in hernia.
B) We have not seen the Progrip to be “the most defective and dangerous” hernia mesh on the market. In fact, those of us who are in the know, have remarked that we see a disproportionately lower number of patients with mesh-related chronic pain due to ProGrip as compared to other mesh.
