Do they just say this to avoid lawsuits because they themselves haven’t tested these products in the body? Seems I also read something about how the material passed the FDA’s approval process (for a particular product that was actually voluntarily recalled a few years later).
I’m assuming we have no idea really about long-term performance (10, 15, 20 years). Then again, haven’t synthetic meshes been used since the 1950’s? I guess maybe polypropylene has only been used for 20 years or so?
