Umbilical Hernia and Diastasis Recti
PVP mesh is an Ethicon product intended to repair a hernia using an underlay or sublay technique. Other companies also make similar patches. It is recommended that the surgeon primarily close the hernia defect on top of the mesh. If they do, then it is no longer a bridged repair.
