New Vaginal Mesh to Replace Current Mesh

A study conducted by a research team at the University of Sheffield has used polyurethane as the new material to develop vaginal meshes instead of polypropylene, the current material that is used for meshing. The new mesh material is softer, flexible and closer in characteristics to the human tissue. It also contains the hormone estrogen, which is released into the pelvic floor when inserted and speeds the healing process following the procedure.
