      Apparently a Polish startup came up with a fluid like substance that becomes solid if exposed to light: these patches are supposed to replace the mesh i.e.

      There was a post from some years ago which asked if anyone ever heard about this, I just repost the question, out of curiosity if similar ideas are explored by other people as well…

      That looks very sketchy. All of the internet press is about novelty and investment. No data about actual studies showing efficacy. Another experiment looking for subjects.

      The “co-founder” is an investment manager. They need money in order to, supposedly, start doing the work to see if it actually works. It’s just an idea at this point.

      Yeah, I am just wondering though whether there are people out there who are researching hernia treatments that do not fall into the two categories of pure tissue hernia vs mesh (surgery) repair….I would be curious to hear what researchers are thinking that might come in the future as an option…

      Some ‘medical glue’ products have been around for a while. For at least 10 years, I know that one avenue has been using it to close up the breastbone following heart surgery.

      The potential applications seem endless. Here is one that seems interesting in terms of the flexibility to tailor it for different purposes (even adjusting how long it lasts in the body). It apparently addresses some of the shortfalls of current options and has already gone through animal testing:
