Visible tissue responsiveness: Metabolic and fibroblast activity during utilization of a bioabsorbable matrix in abdominal wall reconstruction
In this issue of General Surgery News Special Report, Eric Mallico, M.D., FACS, describes the quality of life of patients after ventral and hiatal hernia repairs, and reviews long-term patient outcomes.
A fundamental goal of hernia repair is providing a durable closure.
The influx of more high-risk and obese patients in need of abdominal wall hernia repair naturally leads to larger, more complex hernia cases and the need for strong mesh.
GORE® ENFORM Biomaterial is a reinforcement for soft tissue composed of synthetic bioabsorbable polyglycolic acid and trimethylene carbonate which has proven to be effective for hernia repair.
Today, mesh closure is the standard in hernia repair, a credit to advances in materials and surgical techniques since usher.
A surgeon reviewing their clinical experience with GORE® SYNECOR Intraperitoneal Biomaterial and MEDTRONIC PARIETEX Composite Mesh for Umbilical / Epigastric Hernias.
Many repaired incisional or ventral hernias recur; thus, the primary objective of research and technological developments pertaining to these hernias has long been to minimize recurrences without increasing treatment-related complications.
GORE® BIO-A® Tissue Reinforcement is an excellent choice in soft tissue repair, including complex hernia.
The aim of this study was to compare costs of the GORE® BIO-A® Device, ALLERGAN ALLODERM Device, and ALLERGAN STRATTICE Device in relation to the outcomes in terms of length of stay and recurrence rate following PEH repair.
This study demonstrates that the open, porous structure of the GORE® BIO-A® Tissue Reinforcement is able to recruit the Pax7+ cells residing in host muscle, a critical step in muscle regeneration.
GORE® BIO-A® Tissue Reinforcement is a three dimensional resorbable mesh which has demonstrated to be a ideal “scaffold” facilitating tissue generation and healing without the risk of a non-resorbable implant.
