11/01/2002 - "In our opinion prophylactic use of polypropylene mesh in bariatric patients is highly effective in postoperative hernia prevention."
01/01/2011 - "The application of polypropylene endoprosthesis for the treatment of postoperative hernias allows obtaining 36.4% more good results as compared with the control group, 21.7% decreased number of satisfactory results and no recurrent hernias."
02/01/1968 - "An old technique for the repair of incisional hernias, but with the use of Marlex mesh instead of fascia lata, was used in eight cases, with good results for the limited time the patients have been observed. "
10/01/2004 - "From a surgeon's point of view, the mesh plug repair is superior to the Lichtenstein technique and the Prolene Hernia System in terms of operating time, incision length, perceived difficulty, and surgeon's satisfaction."
02/01/2008 - "For the larger hernias, we used two meshes to cover the defect--polypropylene and Parietex, sizes being 15 x 15 cm. Laparoscopic repair with prosthetic reinforcement is feasible and effective in the treatment of lumbar incisional hernias. "
|2.||Stress Urinary Incontinence
09/01/2015 - "To evaluate the safety and efficacy of a procedure using surgeon-tailored polypropylene mesh (STM) through a needle-less single-incision technique for treating stress urinary incontinence (SUI), aiming to decrease the cost of treatment, which is important in developing countries. "
09/01/1995 - "The 2-team polypropylene (Marlex) mesh approach continues to be an effective treatment for women with complicated stress urinary incontinence."
10/01/2014 - "Macroporous, monofilament polypropylene midurethral slings have been established as a safe and effective treatment for stress urinary incontinence. "
11/01/2009 - "The purpose of this study was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of a modified transobturator vaginal tape inside-out (TVT-O) procedure for stress urinary incontinence (SUI) using custom-tailored polypropylene mesh and helical needles. "
02/01/2009 - "To evaluate the efficacy of in situ anterior vaginal wall sling, reinforced with polypropylene mesh, in the treatment of stress urinary incontinence (SUI). "
11/01/2013 - "In a single RCT, LSC had a superior objective and subjective success rate and lower reoperation rate compared with polypropylene transvaginal mesh for vault prolapse (grade B).Level 3 evidence suggests that vaginal uterosacral ligament suspension, McCall culdoplasty, iliococcygeus fixation and colpocleisis are relatively safe and effective interventions (grade C). "
07/01/2008 - "Several recent studies suggest that transvaginal implantation of polypropylene mesh is an effective and safe technique for the correction of anterior prolapse. "
10/01/2007 - "Transvaginal implantation of polypropylene mesh is an effective and safe technique for the correction of anterior vaginal wall prolapse."
10/01/2007 - "The aim of the present study was to assess the safety and efficacy of anterior vaginal wall repair using polypropylene mesh for the correction of anterior vaginal wall prolapse. "
08/01/2000 - "We determined the efficacy of the use of a tension free prolene mesh to correct a grade III anterior vaginal wall prolapse recurrence. "
|4.||Inguinal Hernia (Direct Inguinal Hernia)
06/01/2005 - "Prolene Darn: safe and effective method for primary inguinal hernia repair."
04/01/2014 - "A prospective, randomized, double-blinded, single-center trial was conducted to evaluate the efficacy of a biologic Inguinal Hernia Matrix (IHM; Cook Medical) compared with polypropylene (PP) mesh using Lichtenstein's inguinal hernia repair in a 3-year outcomes study. "
09/01/2009 - "The aim of this study was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of Lichtenstein's hernioplasty using Surgisis Inguinal Hernia Matrix (SIHM; Cook, Bloomington, Indiana) compared with polypropylene (PP; Angiologica, Pavia, Italy). "

|5.||Pelvic Organ Prolapse
01/01/2009 - "A retrospective study was carried out to evaluate which mesh (cadaveric fascia lata (Tutoplast or Prolene mesh) is associated with the best outcome of laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy for vaginal vault prolapse. "
01/01/2012 - "Trans-vaginal total pelvic floor repair using a customized prolene mesh is safe and effective treatment for comprehensive repair of high-grade pelvic organ prolapse. "
09/01/2013 - "Laparoscopic Y-shaped polypropylene mesh for treatment of uterine and vaginal vault prolapse is a safe and effective method, especially applicable to preserve the uterus, and higher requirements of sexual life of patients."
01/01/1999 - "Colposacropexy with Prolene mesh is a safe and effective technique for the surgical therapy of vaginal vault prolapse."
