Trends, Tools, Trials: Complex Abdominal Wall Repair in 2020Matthew I. Goldblatt, M.D., FACS, discusses a case study of a patient undergoing treatment for simultaneous colon and rectal cancers and had a prior low anterior colon resection procedure with a diverting ileostomy.
General Surgery News Special Report: Clinical Discussion of Advances in Tissue Reinforcement for Abdominal Wall ReconstructionIn early 2021, as part of the Gore Medical Mastery Series, a faculty of surgeons convened in a virtual hybrid symposium in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic to discuss their approaches to AWR, hernia repair, and tissue reinforcement.
Retromuscular Onlay Hernia Repair Using GORE® ENFORM Preperitoneal BiomaterialThis is an educational surgical technique video demonstrating a retromuscular onlay hernia repair using GORE® ENFORM Preperitoneal Biomaterial. A cadaver model is used for demonstration to facilitate visualization of the anatomy. This educational content provided by John P. Fischer, M.D.
Patient quality of life with innovative biomaterials: Clinical review with over seven years of follow upJohn Scott, MD, FACS, provides a post-operative clinical review of patients' quality of life after a hernia repair.
28-Day Strength Charts: GORE® SYNECOR Intraperitoneal BiomaterialGORE® SYNECOR Biomaterial PTFE Knit provides greater strength for the duration of hernia repair.
Bioabsorbable Mesh for Hernia Repair: Know your OptionsGORE® BIO-A® Tissue Reinforcement is intended for use in the reinforcement of soft tissue.
