Hernia MESH

Hernia Mesh is constructed of knitted filaments of extruded polypropylene identical in composition to that used in Polypropylene Suture. This material, when used as a suture, has been reported to be nonreactive and to retain its strength indefinitely in clinical use.

UNILENE Surgical Hernia 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.


Hernia mesh use for the hernia repair and other facial deficiencies that require the addition of a reinforcing or bridging material to obtain the desired surgical result.

A Hernia Mesh is a nonabsorbable surgical 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.

What is Hernia Mesh


The hernia happens once organ pushes through a gap in the muscle or tissues that hold it in place. As an example, the intestines could break through a week area in the abdominal wall.

Hernia are the most common in the abdomen, but it can also visible in the higher thighs, belly button, and groin areas. Most Hernia aren’t straightaway life-threatening, however the don’t go away on their own.

Sometimes it need surgery to stop probably dangerous complications.
