Lightweight Polypropylene Mesh

September 13, 2006 12:34 pm | Mast Biosurgery Usa | Product Releases | Comments

SL Mesh was designed by surgeons to be extremely lightweight but still strong. The polypropylene mesh’s proprietary weave creates an interstitial pore size of 100 microns which encourages fibroblasts to invade the mesh, resulting in more mature collagen than standard meshes. Surgeons will appreciate the soft edges and the isotropic elasticity that allows SL Mesh to conform to natural tissue contours, increasing patient comfort and reducing pain.
