Abdominal Wall Closure With Triclosan-coated Suture (TCS09-10)

2014-07-23 21:09:05 | BioPortfolio

Summary

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.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Surgical removal of excess abdominal skin and fat and tightening of the ABDOMINAL WALL. Abdominoplasty may include LIPECTOMY of INTRA-ABDOMINAL FAT, tightening of the ABDOMINAL MUSCLES, and re-creation of the UMBILICUS.
