Virtual Case Study - Matthew Goldblatt, M.D., FACS: Visible tissue responsiveness: Metabolic and fibroblast activity during utilization of a bioabsorbable matrix in abdominal wall reconstruction

Matthew Goldblatt, M.D., FACS, analyzes tissue responsiveness, and the metabolic and fibroblast activity during utilization of a bioabsorbable matrix in abdominal wall reconstruction.

This patient was undergoing treatment for simultaneous colon and rectal cancers and had a prior low anterior colon resection procedure with a diverting ileostomy. The patient developed a significant hernia at his former ostomy site, which necessitated a repair that included a Transverses Abdominas (TAR) muscle release.

Due to the comorbidities and risk factors present, the patient, family and surgeon decided to use GORE® ENFORM Preperitoneal Biomaterial, as part of the hernia repair to reinforce the soft tissue and support the TAR procedure.
