Abstract
Vaginal M/T implants may undergo a variety of changes, including oxidative processes, tissue ingrowth, and stress shielding over time, and thus may not be inert. This study analyzed polypropylene (PP) samples surgically explanted in women with mesh/tape (M/T) complications to investigate the effect of time on presence and extent of micro/nano structural alterations to the synthetic material.
