NCT ID: NCT00645684 Completed - Clinical trials for Gastrointestinal Diseases

Clinical Use of an Absorbable Coated Suture Material in Surgery (Safil)

Start date: April 1998
Phase: Phase 4
Study type: Interventional

The purpose is to test a coated polyglycolic acid multifilament suture in gastrointestinal surgery as part of a controlled randomized single blinded parallel group trial. The applicability and safety of the strand material used in two suture techniques (2-layer suture technique vs. 1-layer running) are to be tested on the basis of handling characteristics, the operative time consumed for the construction of the 1st anastomosis, the average time of the hospital duration for both patient groups, and the frequency of postoperative complications after discharge, 1 month and a maximum of 3-4 months. The used suture units are counted and the length of sutures determined which will be an indirect measurement of the costs of suture material for the two techniques.
