Fetal Endotracheal Occlusion (FETO) in Severe and Extremely Severe Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia

Enrollment Women carrying fetuses with severe or extremely severe CDH and a normal karyotype will undergo routine clinical evaluation. The fetuses will be 27+0/7 to 29+6/7 weeks of gestational age for severe CDH and can be as early as 22+0/7 weeks gestational age for those deemed as "extremely severe" cases ...

Phase N/A

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

The Use of Avaulta for Anterior Repair

RESEARCH PROTOCOL: The use of Avaulta for anterior repair. A multicenter randomised prospective controlled study. BACKGROUND: During the resent years the methods for pelvic organ prolapse repair have changed rapidly. The reason for this is several. Firstly, there is a relative high recurrence rate in patients having an anterior vaginal ...

Phase N/A

Fetoscopic Endoluminal Tracheal Occlusion in Severe Left Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia

Study Summary All patients will complete a standard prenatal evaluation at the Center for Fetal Diagnosis and Treatment (CFDT) to find out if they are candidates. The standard clinical assessments include: Medical history and Physical exam, Level II ultrasound, Fetal echocardiogram, Fetal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and a Psychosocial assessment. ...

Phase N/A

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

Laparoscopic vs Open Hernia Mesh Repair for Inguinal Hernia

Study population is Waitemata Health (Auckland New Zealand) patients presenting to clinic with unilateral primary inguinal hernia aged less than 60 years, fit for surgery and able to consent for the study. Randomized to open mesh repair or laparoscopic preperitoneal mesh repair. Two surgeons (Dr Rodgers and Dr Hammodat) using ...

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

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

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.

Phase N/A

Laparoscopic Inguinal Hernia Repair- Transabdominal Preperitoneal (TAPP) Versus Totally Extra Peritoneal (TEP)

The following information from the literature was obtained by searching through the MEDLAR and PUBMED using the key words 'TAPP', 'TEP', 'Laparoscopy' and 'Inguinal hernia'. Application of laparoscopic techniques has revolutionized the field of surgery. General surgeons have accepted laparoscopic surgery unequivocally. Few would dispute the tremendous success and the ...
