Found (122) clinical trials

The hypothesis for this study is complex incisional hernia repair using the separation of components technique reinforced with retrorectus placement of Gentrix™ Surgical Matrix will lead to fewer incisional hernia recurrences and fewer wound complications compared to the same incisional hernia repair techniques reinforced with other prosthetic or biologically-derived mesh. ...

Phase N/A

Mesh Type in Ventral Hernia Repair

Ventral hernias are common following abdominal surgery. Currently, there is no equipoise on when synthetic and biologic meshes should be used. Among open ventral hernia repairs, half are repaired using biologic mesh while half are repaired using synthetic mesh. The investigators hypothesize that biologic mesh as opposed to synthetic mesh ...

Phase N/A

Initiation of Resuscitation While Attached to the Cord With Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia

This study aims to measure the cardio-respiratory physiological consequences of initiating resuscitation during placental transfusion (PT) with an intact umbilical cord in infants with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH). PT, mainly via delayed cord clamping, has been shown to offer a higher circulating blood volume, less need for blood transfusion, less ...

Phase N/A

Natural Orifice Translumenal Endoscopic Surgery (NOTES): Laparoscopic Assisted Transvaginal Ventral Hernia Repair

This is a prospective chart review/data collection study of natural orifice translumenal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) for ventral hernia repair, that will include questionnaires administered throughout the study. Subjects enrolled will be those intending to have a transvaginal NOTES ventral hernia repair. Data will be collected and reviewed through 12 months ...

Phase N/A

Comparison Between Desarda and Lichtenstein's Technique for Inguinal Hernia Repair Under Local Anaesthesia

Inguinal hernia is one of the most common treatable surgical conditions. The synthetic prostheses most often used in the inguinal area may in some cases create new clinical problems, such as foreign body sensation in the groin, discomfort, and abdominal wall stiffness, surgical site infections, migration of mesh and may ...

Phase N/A

Prevalence of Sarcopenia and Undernutrition in Patients With Cirrhosis and Abdominal Hernia

Sarcopenia is a common condition in patients with cirrhosis, with a prevalence of around 50%. It is unknown if the presence of sarcopenia may influence the prevalence of abdominal hernias in this group of patients. Clinical, nutritional and radiological evaluation will be performed in two groups of cirrhotic patients to ...

Phase N/A

Minimally Invasive Surgery of the Gastro-esophageal Junction

This study will assess short and long term outcomes of individuals undergoing minimally invasive surgery of the gastro-esophageal junction (MISGEJ). Patients will respond to questionnaires on an annual basis evaluating quality of life and functionality following MISGEJ. Hospital charts will also be reviewed on an annual basis to assess patient ...

Phase N/A

Ultrasound-guided Lumbar Periradicular Injection: a Non Irradiating Infiltration Technique

Foraminal periradicular infiltrations for therapeutic purposes are currently recognized as an integral part of the treatment of radiculalgia, particularly in case of radiculalgia refractory to a well-conducted initial treatment, in combination with the rehabilitation and education of the patient. The incidence of low back pain, lumbar pain or pure radiculalgia ...

Phase N/A

Abdominal Versus Vaginal Hysteropexy

this study compares The unilateral sacrospinous hysteropexy with prolene sutures versus the abdominal sacral hysteropexy using Mersilene suture for the management of uterine prolapse

Phase N/A

An Intervention to Improve Prolapse Using Femmeze (v1)

Aim Evaluate the feasibility of the Femmeze device to improve management of posterior vaginal compartment prolapse addressing implementation of the intervention and preliminary effectiveness. Objectives demonstrate effectiveness of the device (comfort, ease of use, empty the rectum of stool more easily than their current approach and quality of life) identify ...
