For assessing the adherence score after 6 weeks, we evaluated each mesh with tissue of ten different patients. After semiquantitative determination, we conducted the frequency distribution value of the score results for each mesh. (points/10).
Scoring was based on the classification proposed by Melman et al. [10].
None (0 point): no tissue ingrowth.
Fair (1 point): thin bands of fibroblasts and small collagen deposits between mesh filaments.
Good (2 points): moderately thick bands of fibroblasts and collagen deposits between mesh filaments.
Excellent (3 points): nearly all spaces between mesh filaments occupied by fibroblasts, collagen deposits, and capillaries.
