Abstract

The tissue response to prosthetic meshes depends on the material used and its structure. This work highlights the feasibility of carrying out experimental studies to test the tolerance to and integration of biomaterials used in gynecology. Such studies need to be carried out whenever new prostheses become available to validate their use in common practice.
