Definition
 
enEnglish
congenital definition: Used with disease headings to indicate those conditions existing at, and usually before, birth. It excludes morphologic abnormalities and birth injuries, for which "abnormalities" and "injuries" are used.
Surgical Mesh definition: Any woven or knit material of open texture used in surgery for the repair, reconstruction, or substitution of tissue. The mesh is usually a synthetic fabric made of various polymers. It is occasionally made of metal.
MESH, SURGICAL definition: Surgical mesh is a metallic or polymeric screen intended to be implanted to reinforce soft tissue or bone where weakness exists. Examples of surgical mesh are metallic and polymeric mesh for hernia repair, and acetabular and cement restrictor mesh used during orthopedic surgery.
Mesh definition: Flat, woven (e.g., knitted) materials with an open texture and evenly spaced holes. Mesh used for medical purposes is typically made of a biocompatible substance that is synthetic (e.g., a polymer), metallic (e.g., surgical stainless steel), or a combination of both. A mesh is typically implanted to support or protect soft tissue in surgical procedures (e.g., to prevent relapse of hernias, to protect tissue during abdominal wall reconstruction and plastic surgery) and/or bone in orthopedic reconstructive procedures (e.g., cranioplasty). Absorbable mesh is frequently used in tissue engineering as a scaffold for tissue regeneration.
MESH, METAL definition: Surgical mesh is a metallic or polymeric screen intended to be implanted to reinforce soft tissue or bone where weakness exists. Examples of surgical mesh are metallic and polymeric mesh for hernia repair, and acetabular and cement restrictor mesh used during orthopedic surgery.
Mesh, Metallic definition: Mesh made of a biocompatible metal (e.g., surgical stainless steel, tantalum) with appropriate mechanical characteristics. Metallic mesh is used alone or in combination with synthetic materials (e.g., polymers) in reconstructive surgical procedures (e.g., to repair large chest wall defects or large abdominal incisional hernias) and/or orthopedic procedures (e.g., cranioplasty, femoral reconstruction).
Mesh, Polymeric, Polyglycolic Acid definition: Absorbable (i.e., biodegradable) polymeric mesh made of polyglycolic acid. This mesh is used for temporary implants and/or as a temporary scaffold for tissue regeneration (i.e., tissue engineering).
MESH, SURGICAL, POLYMERIC definition: Surgical mesh is a metallic or polymeric screen intended to be implanted to reinforce soft tissue or bone where weakness exists. Examples of surgical mesh are metallic and polymeric mesh for hernia repair, and acetabular and cement restrictor mesh used during orthopedic surgery.
Mesh, Polymeric definition: Mesh made of a biocompatible polymer with appropriate mechanical characteristics. Polymeric mesh is made of either absorbable materials (e.g., polyglycolic acid, polycarbonate) or nonabsorbable materials (e.g., polypropylene, polyethylene, Dacron, nylon). Nonabsorbable polymeric mesh is used mainly in surgical procedures (e.g., reinforcement of incisional and groin hernia repair, treatment of pelvic floor prolapse); absorbable mesh is used mainly for temporary implants and/or as temporary scaffold for tissue regeneration (i.e., tissue engineering).
BAG, POLYMERIC MESH, PACEMAKER definition: A pacemaker polymeric mesh bag is an implanted device used to hold a pacemaker pulse generator. The bag is designed to create a stable implant environment for the pulse generator.
