Textile implants must reinforce tissue, support muscles and protect organs. They have to cushion different forces without limiting mobility – including the extreme stresses associated with coughing, sneezing and laughing. What is needed therefore is an optimal interaction between predefined stability and elasticity. We achieve the optimal balance between these two properties.
Female Pelvic Organ Prolapse and Female Urinary Incontinence
Sling or mesh implants must reinforce, support, protect or replace muscles, organs, tissues and ligaments. When doing so they have to cushion different forces which prevail in the body, including extreme tensile loading.
Conventional slings and/or implant arms have a strong tendency to curl up under stress. If they are set in motion, this frequently leads to the feared “saw effect”.
In addition, effective porosity drops to zero and a high risk of erosion develops [literature number 21].
Shape stability and defined elasticity
DynaMesh® structures are distinguished by high shape stability with defined elasticity. They do not curl up, and they retain their shape and high effective porosity under stress [literature number 26].
