A Longitudinal Prospective Outcomes Study of Laparoscopic Abdominal Wall Hernia Repair Using Symbotex Composite Mesh

This study is being done to validate the efficacy of Symbotex™ as an effective synthetic mesh option in the repair of grade I and II ventral hernias. It will also set the groundwork for a future clinical trial in which the efficacy of Symbotex® can be compared to other synthetic ...

Investigation to Minimize Prolapse Recurrence of the Vagina Using Estrogen

This is a double-blind randomized trial of intravaginal estrogen (conjugated estrogens, 0.625mg/1g cream) vs. placebo in postmenopausal women (n=222 total) with symptomatic prolapse beyond the hymen planning transvaginal native tissue repairs. Medication will be started 6-8 weeks before surgery and continued for 1 year postoperatively, i.e. until scar remodeling is ...

Deep Versus Moderate Neuromuscular Blockade During Laparoscopic Surgery

Neuromuscular blockade (NMB) is frequently utilized in laparoscopic procedures to improve surgical conditions by relaxing the abdominal muscles and thus facilitating insufflation with carbon dioxide to optimize surgical view. Increased airway pressures can lead to an increase in alveolar and perivascular edema, a decline in dynamic lung compliance and hypoxemia. ...

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 ...

Functional Outcome After Incisional Hernia Repair: Open Versus Laparoscopic Repair

Midline incisional hernia is reported from 0,5 to 11% after abdominal operations. Discomfort, pain, body image alteration and diminished quality of life influences functional well being. Alteration in pulmonary function, risk of visceral incarceration or cutaneous complications are potential medical complications. Primary repair without mesh reinforcement is almost abandoned because ...

Functional Outcome After Groin Hernia Mesh Repair: Open Versus Laparoscopy

Hernia repair is the most frequent elective operation performed in general surgery. Chronic pain or persistent neuralgia has been recognized as a complication after inguinal hernia repair but was reported in the 1980s as a rare and infrequent condition. Studies from the mid 1990s have reported a higher frequency, with ...
