2014-08-27 03:12:12 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This is a multi-center, observational study of incisional/ventral hernia repair with NG-TSM laparoscopically. The study is not randomized and has a single treatment design assessing NG-TSM intra-operatively, its ease of use and handling characteristics.

Description

The objectives of the study are to evaluate the ease of use of NG-TSM intra-operatively in laparoscopic incisional/ventral hernia repair, and assessing early outcomes post-operatively following mesh implantation, including seroma formation, hematoma, wound complications, infections, early recurrences, adverse events, and subject comfort, as well as health economic data to include quality of life, subject satisfaction data, time of procedure, length of stay, re-hospitalization, and extended hospitalization.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

A pelvic hernia through the obturator foramen, a large aperture in the hip bone normally covered by a membrane. Obturator hernia can lead to intestinal incarceration and INTESTINAL OBSTRUCTION.

A groin hernia occurring inferior to the inguinal ligament and medial to the FEMORAL VEIN and FEMORAL ARTERY. The femoral hernia sac has a small neck but may enlarge considerably when it enters the subcutaneous tissue of the thigh. It is caused by defects in the ABDOMINAL WALL.

A hernia caused by weakness of the anterior ABDOMINAL WALL due to midline defects, previous incisions, or increased intra-abdominal pressure. Ventral hernias include UMBILICAL HERNIA, incisional, epigastric, and spigelian hernias.

A HERNIA due to an imperfect closure or weakness of the umbilical ring. It appears as a skin-covered protrusion at the UMBILICUS during crying, coughing, or straining. The hernia generally consists of OMENTUM or SMALL INTESTINE. The vast majority of umbilical hernias are congenital but can be acquired due to severe abdominal distention.
