Laparotomy clinical trials at UCSF
1 research study open to eligible people
Laparotomy is a surgery to cut through the abdomen. There is a clinical trial called "Prophylactic Reinforcement of Ventral Abdominal Incisions Trial" recruiting at UCSF to test a new implant called Phasix™ Mesh. The trial will compare how well the implant works during surgery compared to traditional stitches.
open to eligible people ages 18 years and up
This trial is being conducted to evaluate the efficacy of Phasix™ Mesh implantation at the time of midline fascial closure compared to primary suture closure in preventing a subsequent incisional hernia in subjects at risk for incisional hernia after open midline laparotomy surgery.
