Transvaginal Mesh Materials Frequently Asked Questions
Is transvaginal mesh made out of more than one type of material?
Yes, medical device manufacturers produce surgical mesh out of several types of manmade and natural materials.
Generally speaking, transvaginal surgical mesh can be divided into four categories:
- Non-absorbable synthetic mesh made of polyester or polypropylene;
- Absorbable synthetic mesh made of polylactic-co-glycolic acid;
- Biologic mesh made of acellular collagen derived from cow or pig skin;
- Composite mesh that combines materials from the categories above.
Most surgical mesh cleared for urogynecologic procedures is made of non-absorbable synthetic polypropylene, according to the Food and Drug Administration.
