Recent meta-analyses have shown that the application of a monofile, late-absorbable suture using a continuous suture technique with a suture-to-wound length ratio of at least 4:1 is the method of choice for the closure of midline laparotomies. Monomax, a new ultra-long term absorbable, high elastic monofilament suture, was approved in 2009 and its safety and efficacy were proven in a selected patient population under controlled conditions for elective midline abdominal wall closure (ISSAAC Study...

Abstract Introduction Various suture materials and suture techniques are used to perform gastrointestinal anastomosis after tumour resection, but the best combination is still a matter of debate. Methods This multi-centre, international, single-arm, prospective observational study aimed at demonstrating the non-inferiority of a mid-term absorbable monofilament in comparison to braided sutures in gastrointestinal anastomosis. Monosyn suture was used to create the gastrointestinal anastomosis and ...

Background Intra-abdominal surgical intervention can cause the development of intra-peritoneal adhesions. To reduce this problem, different agents have been tested to minimize abdominal adhesions; however, the optimal adhesion prophylaxis has not been found so far. Therefore, the A-Part® Gel was developed as a barrier to diminish postsurgical adhesions; the aim of this randomized controlled study was a first evaluation of its safety and efficacy.

Background Incisional hernia is the most frequent long-term complication after visceral surgery, with an incidence of between 9 and 20 per cent 1 year after operation. Most controlled studies provide only short-term follow-up, and the actual incidence remains unclear. This study evaluated the incidence of incisional hernia up to 3 years after midline laparotomy in two prospective trials. Methods Three-year follow-up data from the ISSAAC (prospective, multicentre, historically controlled) and INS...

Abstract Objective Postoperative peritoneal adhesions following gynaecological surgery remain a clinically relevant problem. One approach to prevent adhesion formation is to apply physical barriers such as hydrogels. Study design A physically crosslinked polyvinyl alcohol and carboxymethylcellulose (PVA/CMC) hydrogel (A-Part) was characterized in vitro . Three different traumatization methods were evaluated in a rabbit uterine study. To determine its anti-adhesion efficacy, the hydrogel was firs...

Purpose Postpancreatectomy hemorrhage (PPH) is one of the most serious complications after pancreatoduodenectomy (PD). This study analyzed and validated the International Study Group of Pancreatic Surgery (ISGPS) definition of PPH and aimed to identify risk factors for early (<24 h) and late PPH.

Background: Delayed gastric emptying (DGE) is a common complication after pancreatoduodenectomy. The International Study Group of Pancreatic Surgery (ISGPS) definition of DGE has not been evaluated and validated in a high-volume centre. Methods: Complete data sets including assessment of gastric emptying were identified from a database of patients undergoing pancreatoduodenectomy between 2001 and 2008. Factors associated with DGE (grades A, B and C) were assessed by univariable and multivariable...
