The neoClose Abdominal Closure vs Carter-Thomason Trial


Brief description of study

The purpose of this study is to compare the neoClose abdominal closure to the standard Carter-Thomason closure in a bariatric surgery gastric bypass population.

Detailed Study Description

Both the neoClose abdominal closure to the standard Carter-Thomason closurewill be used to close 12 mm camera and stapler port sites upon completion of a robotic assisted laparoscopic gastric bypass. The procedure requires a 12 mm port be placed in the midline approximately 3 cm cephalad to the umbilicus and a second in the right mid abdomen. Port sites will be closed as defined as the inability to palpate a fascial defect and the incision being air tight upon carbon dioxide insufflation.
