Abstract:

The purpose of this article is to discuss the solution of the main clinical adverse events occurring in less invasive reconstruction of hernia. The study attempted to design the knitted implants, contributing to reduce the risk of adhesion to the viscera. Specially designed knitting structure of the hernia implant allowed to introduce the one-side enhancement of the surface in the form of loops stitched-out of the surface accelerated the connective tissue in-growth. The opposite side was modified the treatment in low-temperature plasma of low molecular weight fluorogenic compound resulted in the deposition of fluoropolymer nano-layer. The effect of the modification on the adhesion of implant to viscera was studied in vivo. Additionally, the influence of the implantation time on the structural properties, the connective tissue covering implants single monofilaments as well as the stability of the fluoropolymer layer formed during the implantation were detailed investigated.
