A Mesh hernia graft is needed to prevent recurrent hernias. This study aimed to observe the biocompatibility of hernia mesh graft as an alternative material for handling hernia cases via surgery for small animals. This study used 6 male rabbits aged 6-8 months and weighted 1.5-2 kg which were divided into 2 groups. Group 1 was not implanted and had the peritoneum, muscles dan skin sutured, while group 2 was implanted by 3D hernia mesh graft and sutured by the peritoneum, muscles dan skin. Ultrasound and radiograph evaluation were performed on day 6th, 12th, and 24th after surgery. The radiograph evaluation with a left lateral view of the body was performed to evaluate changes in density, whereas ultrasound imaging of the dorsal hypogastric region around the implant area was performed for interpretation of echogenicity. The ultrasound imaging of the dorsal hypogastric region around the implant showed anechoic echogenicity in group 2 on day 12, but on the same day group 1 only showed hyperechoic echogenicity features. In both treatment groups at day 12, the results of X-ray showed inflammation around the incision area with low-density radiopaque image visible. This study showed that the mesh hernia graft has good biocompatibility and is well accepted by the body.
