Manufacturer Narrative
Investigation: a review of the lot history and sterilization records was conducted. No deviations were noted or found in any of the documentation and all release criteria was met, including testing for suture retention (coarse and wale), fourier-transform infrared spectrophotometry (ftir), and ball burst conducted on the mesh at incoming and in-process ftir testing of the cured coated panel. Medical record review: a review of the limited medical records provided reveal no indication of comorbidities or patient risk factors for infection. Mesh explant was due to signs of chronic infection. Cultures revealed moderate growth of staph aureus. Clinical evaluation: microorganisms can infect a surgical wound through various forms of contact, such as from the touch of a contaminated caregiver or surgical instrument, through microorganisms in the air, or through microorganisms that are already on or in your body and then spread into the wound. Other risks for infection include a compromised patient, elderly and/or overweight patients, weakened immune systems and diabetes. Staphylococcus aureus is the most dangerous of all of the many common staphylococcal bacteria. These bacteria are spread by having direct contact with an infected person, by using a contaminated object, or by inhaling infected droplets dispersed by sneezing or coughing. Staph aureus is most often spread to others by contaminated hands. Risk factors include persons who are immunocompromised or who have had invasive medical procedures. The instructions for use precaution against handling of the mesh without clean sterile gloves and instruments. It states in adverse reactions, "complications that may occur with the use of any surgical mesh include, but are not limited to, inflammation, infection, seroma, hematoma, fistula formation or mechanical disruption of the tissue and/or mesh material, possible adhesions when placed in direct contact with the viscera (intestines) and organs.
