      Good intentions

      Here is an interesting new paper, similar to the white paper that Tela Bio produced to promote Ovitex. When there is a new product to introduce to market somehow the flaws in the existing products are very easy to define and describe.

      The parallels with hernia repair mesh are obvious and expected. The inventors of the product have identified the qualities that a prosthetic tissue material should have, and these qualities should be the same for hernia repair devices.

      “Polypropylene Pelvic Mesh: What Went Wrong and What Will Be of the Future?

      A.S. has been awarded the Young Innovator Award 2022 from Innovate UK for the development of a novel pelvic membrane to treat pelvic organ prolapse.”

      Excerpt –

      “Results: The results of this review found that although PP is nontoxic, its physical properties demonstrate a significant mismatch between its viscoelastic properties compared to the surrounding tissue, which is a likely cause of complications.

      We propose the development of a pelvic mesh using advanced materials including emerging graphene-based nanocomposite materials.”
