Infected mesh

Infected mesh is a risk following a surgical mesh procedure that should be weighed up against the benefits

About

Surgical mesh is a loosely woven medical sheet that can be used to give you extra support when repairing weakened or damaged tissue. Most surgical mesh devices are made from synthetic materials or living tissue from animals. There is a risk that surgical mesh can become infected post surgery, so the risks need to be weighed against the benefits.
