Found (35) clinical trials

Lotus Clinical Research is conducting a research study to evaluate the efficacy of an investigational pain medication in patients who require hernia repair surgery.

Phase

Hernia Repair With or Without Sutures

This is a randomized study in which subjects will undergo one or two currently accepted techniques of mesh fixation during laparoscopic ventral hernia repair. Subject will undergo mesh fixation with either trans-abdominal sutures and metallic tacks or metallic tacks only. Pain will be assessed through week 12, and hernia recurrence ...

Phase N/A

Evaluation of the Efficacy of Electromagnetic Therapy on Postoperative Surgical Pain After Uni- and Bilateral Inguinal Hernia Repair.

A monocentric interventional randomized placebo controlled trial evaluating the efficacy of the post surgical and wound care recovery kit. It's a small device that consists of a thin metal ring that is placed on the skin surface, non-invasively. It's connected with a small battery. When the plastic tag is removed ...

Phase

Effect of Stitch Technique on the Occurrence of Incisional Hernia After Abdominal Wall Closure

The major long term complication of abdominal wall closure after a median laparotomy is the development of an incisional hernia. Several suture technique and suture material have been used but the incidence of this complication still lies between 9 -20%. Synthetic suture material which have become available over the last ...

Phase

The Use of Biologic Mesh vs Bioabsorbable Mesh During Ventral Hernia Repair in At-risk Patients

The goal of the proposed study is to evaluate the outcomes of patients implanted with Strattice® (LifeCell Corporation, Branchburg, NJ, USA) and Gore® Bio-A® (W. L. Gore & Associates, Inc., Newark, DE, USA) for the repair of abdominal wall defects in at-risk patients. Primary endpoints of the study will include ...

Phase N/A

Should Prosthetic Repair of Incisional Abdominal Hernias be Drain or Not?

Between 3 to 20% of patients who received a midline laparotomy will develop an incisional hernia. Primary suture of the defect is associated with a recurrence rate between 25 and 50%.Mesh repair is superior with regard to the recurrence (12-20%), but early postoperative complications include infections, hematomas and seromas. Some ...

Phase N/A

Effect of Intraoperative Infiltration With Bupivacain on the Development of Chronic Pain After Inguinal Hernia Repair

264 patients scheduled for an inguinal hernia repair using one of three procedures (Lichtenstein, Barwell and TEP = total extraperitoneal hernioplasty) are being randomly allocated intra-operatively into two groups. Group I patients receive a local injection of 20ml Carbostesin® 0.25% at the end of the operation according to a standardised ...

Phase

Characterization of Explanted Hernia Meshes From Human Subjects: A Multi-Center Prospective Study

This study will collect a large amount of hernia mesh explants and study the changes that occur in the materials in vivo to use the information to help design new mesh made from novel materials. We will have evidence that our current options are not only inadequate but can lead ...

Phase N/A

Continuous Versus Interrupted Abdominal Wall Closure After Emergency Midline Laparotomy

More than 700.000 open abdominal surgeries (laparotomies) are performed each year in Germany (2). A major surgical complication after laparotomy is abdominal fascia dehiscence which might appear either as early (burst abdomen with evisceration) or as late complication (incisional hernia). These patients usually undergo surgery for secondary fascial closure associated ...

Phase

International Hernia Mesh Registry

To help identify best practices leading to lower recurrence rates and decreases in chronic pain associated with the hernia repair procedure.
