What is Hernia Mesh?
Mesh devices are alternatives for stitches. Hernia mesh can be used to repair incisional, ventral, and inguinal hernias. When the stomach muscles cannot handle surgery or stitches, a mesh can be used to hold everything in place by being placed between the intestines and the stomach lining.
Hernias occur when an organ, intestines, or fatty tissue squeezes through a hole or weak spot in a muscle. Hernias can be caused by anything that increases abdominal pressure, including obesity, weight-lifting, constipation, pregnancy, etc.
Types of Hernias
Inguinal: inner groin
Femoral: upper thigh or outer groin
Incisional: surgical incision or scar in the abdomen
Ventral: abdominal wall
Umbilical: belly button
Hiatal: inside the abdomen on the diaphragm
