NCT ID: NCT02445729 Enrolling by invitation - Clinical trials for Abdominal Wall Wound

Impact of Timing of Wound Dressing Removal After Cesarean Section

Start date: March 2015
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

The purpose of this study is to determine if surgical dressings removed at 24 hours or 48 hours improves wound healing and appearance, and to determine if surgical dressings removed after 24 hours or 48 hours decreases the incidence of post-operative wound infections.

NCT ID: NCT01901068 Completed - Clinical trials for Abdominal Wall Wound

MonoMax for Abdominal Wall Closure

MULTIMAC
Start date: February 2013
Phase: N/A
Study type: Observational

A great number of different suture techniques and suture materials are in use in order to reconstitute the abdominal wall integrity, but there is no surgical gold standard for abdominal wall closure until today. Various Meta-Analyses and randomized controlled trials have been performed, which compared non-absorbable or long-term absorbable versus rapid absorbable suture materials or monofilament versus multifilament suture materials, or continuous versus interrupted suture techniques respectively. This lack of evidence has the following outcome: burst abdomen is observed in 1-3% of patients within the first days after a laparotomy. The incidence of abdominal wall hernias 12 months postoperatively is estimated to be up to 20% (range 9 to 20%) . Wound infections develop in 3 to 21% of patients undergoing a median laparotomy within the first 30 days. At present most surgeons favour monofilament long-absorbable continuous sutures as the most suitable material for closing abdominal wounds after midline laparotomy.
