Phase

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 ...

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

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 ...

Phase

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

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 ...

Randomized to open mesh repair or laparoscopic preperitoneal mesh repair. Two surgeons (Dr Rodgers and Dr Hammodat) using ...

Phase N/A

Fetoscopic Tracheal Balloon Occlusion in Left Diaphragmatic Hernia

Left diaphragmatic hernia detected during fetal life carries a high risk for postnatal lung failure due to lung underdevelopment and pulmonary hypertension. In severe cases, extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is used as a life-saving intensive care means to enable survival of severely affected infants. Clinical experience from prospective controlled non-randomized ...
