Abdominal Wall Closure With Triclosan-coated Suture (TCS09-10)
After open colo-rectal surgery the surgical site infection (SSI) is very high among abdominal surgeries. The goal of the investigators randomized, prospective, multicentric, internet-based study is to compare rate of SSI after surgery of colon and rectum by using triclosan-coated suture for abdominal wall closure. 180-180 cases in seven centres are involved in this study. Two arms are separeted by computer randomization at abdomial wall closure: application of triclosan-coated and non-coated PDS suture (PDS vs. PDS-Plus). Triclosan is an antiseptic material which the investigators hope will provide better local infection control at the site with reducing the risk of bacterial colonisation.

Abdominal Wound Closure Techniques
Methods to repair breaks in abdominal tissues caused by trauma or to close surgical incisions during abdominal surgery.
A birth defect in which the URINARY BLADDER is malformed and exposed, inside out, and protruded through the ABDOMINAL WALL. It is caused by closure defects involving the top front surface of the bladder, as well as the lower abdominal wall; SKIN; MUSCLES; and the pubic bone.
A protrusion of abdominal structures through the retaining ABDOMINAL WALL. It involves two parts: an opening in the abdominal wall, and a hernia sac consisting of PERITONEUM and abdominal contents. Abdominal hernias include groin hernia (HERNIA, FEMORAL; HERNIA, INGUINAL) and VENTRAL HERNIA.
The outer margins of the ABDOMEN, extending from the osteocartilaginous thoracic cage to the PELVIS. Though its major part is muscular, the abdominal wall consists of at least seven layers: the SKIN, subcutaneous fat, deep FASCIA; ABDOMINAL MUSCLES, transversalis fascia, extraperitoneal fat, and the parietal PERITONEUM.
Negative-pressure Wound Therapy
The application of a vacuum across the surface of a wound through a foam dressing cut to fit the wound. This removes wound exudates, reduces build-up of inflammatory mediators, and increases the flow of nutrients to the wound thus promoting healing.
The aim of this study was to ascertain if the use of Vicryl plus® reduced the number of wound infections after transverse laparotomy comparing to polydioxanon suture. Between 10/03 and 1...
2-octylcyanoacrylate (2-OCA) has been used extensively in clinical practice in trauma, plastic surgery, orthopaedic surgery, emergency medicine and paediatrics. Most studies on 2-OCA to da...
Objective: To determine the effect of non-closure of the visceral and parietal peritoneum during Cesarean section on the formation of adhesions. Study design: A prospective randomized tri...
MonoMax will be used for a continuous all-layer (except skin) suture to close abdominal wall after midline incision. The primary objective of this trial is to demonstrate that the frequenc...
Within the last decade the customary trend of using non absorbable sutures has changed, with numerous studies and meta-analyses advocating the use of slowly absorbable sutures, claiming co...
Background: Primary bite wound suturing in the emergency department remains controversial in some cases. Objective: We conducted a study to investigate the infection rate and cosmetic appearance betwe...
BACKGROUND: Stoma closure is associated with high wound infection rates. The aim of this study was to evaluate risk factors for infection rates in such wounds, with particular emphasis on assessing th...
BACKGROUND: The Rives-Stoppa incisional hernia repair is the gold standard for mesh repair of complex incisional hernias. The risk of infection can be reduced if fascia is closed over the prosthetic m...
PURPOSE: Different suture techniques and various suture materials are in use to close midline incisions after primary laparotomy. The ISSAAC study aimed to assess the safety and...
ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: Hyperthermic chemotherapy applies thermal energy to both abdominal wall as well as the intra-abdominal viscera. The combination of the hyperthemia, chemotherapy and cytoreductive...
