I just came across a new paper describing training for interpreting imaging of hernia mesh complications. Anyone who has had imaging for mesh complications has probably noticed that usually nothing of note is found. Most reports describe areas that have nothing to do with where the mesh is, like hip joint damage, as possible pain sources. So it’s good to see an effort being made to train in how to see the fine details of actual mesh problems.
This might not help those who have pain from mesh that is in its “proper” placement. But it is good to see that mesh complications are becoming more recognized as a common problem and that tools are being developed to attempt to properly describe the complications.
It’s a good current overall review of the mesh complication situation today, I think. The pdf file is easier to read than the web page. Teaching points are pulled out in a sidebar.
