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 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

Laparoscopic Three-dimensional Versus Two-dimensional Sacral Colpopexy and Paravaginal Repair

The purpose of this study is to compare operative times of laparoscopic sacral colpopexy (LSC) for the treatment of symptomatic vaginal vault prolapse as well as paravaginal repair (PVR) for symptomatic cystocele between two-dimensional and three-dimensional laparoscopic systems. Additionally this study will evaluate postoperative complications from surgeries performed using two-dimensional ...

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

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

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 ...

Phase

A Comparison of Fortiva and Strattice Tissue Matrices in Complex Ventral Hernia Repair

This is a randomized, prospective, double-blinded study evaluating the efficacy of Fortiva Porcine Dermis versus Strattice Reconstructive Tissue Matrix in 120 patients with large complex abdominal wall ventral hernias undergoing single stage repair. The patient will be blinded to treatment as well as an independent qualified evaluator to confirm evidence ...

Phase N/A

The neoClose Abdominal Closure vs Carter-Thomason Trial

Both the neoClose abdominal closure to the standard Carter-Thomason closurewill be used to close 12 mm camera and stapler port sites upon completion of a robotic assisted laparoscopic gastric bypass. The procedure requires a 12 mm port be placed in the midline approximately 3 cm cephalad to the umbilicus and ...
