Non-Mesh and Alternative Repairs

Non-Mesh and Alternative Repairs

Non-mesh repairs (also known as tissue repairs) are used for repair of small umbilical hernias or groin hernias in patients with sensitivity to mesh or those who do not desire implantation of a synthetic material. Newer resorbable materials are also available, which can lead to reinforcement of the natural tissues during the healing process and are subsequently resorbed by the body. While routinely used in repair of hiatal hernias, resorbable materials also have selected indications in repairs of inguinal, ventral or incisional hernias.
