“This innovation has the potential to offer the best of synthetic and biological meshes. The ‘spider mesh’ would be stronger than native tissue, have pliability, and with its resistance to infection, could be used in infected fields. To be able to use a 3D printer to create the mesh onsite would eliminate the need for stocking multiple different sizes and eliminate waste.”
