Marlex is a synthetic nylonlike material. It is placed subcutaneously external to the entire sphincter mechanism under local anaesthesia after an adequate mechanical and antibiotic bowel preparation. The advantage is that it is a simple procedure which eventhe very elderly tolerate well. It provides nothing more than a semirigid encirclement of the anus, but in most cases helps the patients immensely to retain some form of control. Ithas an advantage over the Thiersch wire in that it is ...

An alternative technique is to use polypropylene mesh (Marlex, Bard Cardiosurgery, Billerica, MA). Marlex is a single-stitch knit mesh that is malleable in one direction and rigid in the other. It is a semipermeable membrane with a pore size of 75 μ. The mesh enables macrophages and fibroblasts to pass through and provides a matrix for tissue ingrowth, allowing polypropylene to be incorporated by the surrounding tissue.

Marlex is a single knit fabric, rigid in only one direction and stretchable in the opposite direction. Prolene is a double stitch knit and is rigid in all directions. These meshes can be sutured to the defect margins, tightly enough to be semirigid. The mesh is incorporated into the chest wall by infiltration of its interstices with fibrous tissue. Goretex is a soft tissue patch impervious to air and water, ideal for a large defect associated with pneumonectomy. 5 When a rigid chest wall replacement is ...

Marquardt Index n In an infrared-absorption study of the cure advancement of a phenolic resin, the Marquardt index is the numerical difference in percent transmission between the absorption peaks at 12.2 and 13.3 μm. As the resin cure progresses, the intensity of the 13.3-μm absorption increases more rapidly than that of the initially stronger ...
