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.

  • Prophylactic Reinforcement of Ventral Abdominal Incisions Trial

    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.
