GPCLENE polypropylene mesh is constructed of knitted filaments of extruded polypropylene identical in composition to that used in GPCLENE Polypropylene Suture. This material, when used as a suture, has been reported to be nonreactive and to retain its strength indefinitely in clinical use.
GPCLENE mesh is knitted by a process which interlinks each fiber junction and which provides for elasticity in both directions. This construction permits the mesh to be cut into any desired shape or size without unraveling. This bi-directional elastic property allows adaptation to various stresses encountered in the body
This mesh may be used for the repair of hernia and other facial deficiencies that require the addition of a reinforcing or bridging material to obtain the desired surgical result. GPCLENE mesh is a non absorbable mesh used to span and reinforce traumatic or surgical wounds to provide extended support during and following wound healing. The material is not absorbed nor is it subject to degradation or weakening by the action of tissue enzymes.
