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 ...

Gastrointestinal Tract Recovery in Patients Undergoing Open Ventral Hernia Repair

Background: One of the most common occurrences following ventral incisional hernia repair is post-operative ileus. Post-operative ileus is a source of patient discomfort and morbidity that ultimately delays discharge from the hospital and is frequently a source of patient readmission. Prolonged length of hospital stay due to post-operative ileus increases ...

Phase N/A

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 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

The Management of Closed Surgical Incisions Resulting From Incisional Hernia Repair and/or Functional Panniculectomy Using the Prevena Customizable Dressing

The goal of this study is to evaluate the impact of Customizable in the management of extensive closed surgical incisions for Subjects undergoing abdominal surgery for incisional hernia repair and/or functional panniculectomy as compared to SOC dressing, and to significantly reduce the SSC rate experienced by Subjects receiving Customizable vs. ...

Phase N/A

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 ...

Phase

Evaluation of HQ Matrix Soft Tissue Mesh for the Treatment of Inguinal Hernia

HQ® Matrix Soft Tissue Mesh is a warp-knitted, multifilament, bioengineered scaffold which is comprised of the silk fibroin protein of the Bombyx mori (B. mori) silkworm. The porous network structure makes it soft and pliable and convenient to implant. The mesh is mechanically strong, biocompatible, and long-term bioresorbable. The pore ...

Phase N/A

Comparing Pain After Laparoscopic Hernia Repair Using Two Different Types of Mesh Fixation

The primary aim of this study is to evaluate acute and chronic pain following laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair comparing the ProGripTM self- fixating mesh with tack fixation. The ProGripTM laparoscopic self-fixating mesh has been approved for implantation to reinforce the abdominal wall during laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair (TAPP). The mesh ...

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 ...
