Use of a Biological Mesh (StratticeTM) for the Prevention of Parastomal Hernia After Colorectal Surgery With Colostomy


Brief description of study

In France around 5,000 colostomies are performed after elective or emergency surgery. These colostomies could be associated with major outcomes including parastomal hernia (4 - 53%) of cases.

To reduce the incidence of these outcomes, several methods have been proposed but the more pertinent consist in the use of a biological mesh during the stoma's conception.

Nevertheless there is no data on the use of a biological mesh (StratticeTM) for the prevention of parastomal hernia.
