Tissue Adhesion, Surgery-Induced Clinical Trial
A Randomized, Multicenter, Subject and Assessor Blind, Parallel, Comparative Non-inferiority Clinical Trial Study to Assess the Anti-adhesive Effect and Safety of MEDICURTAIN® Applied to Undergoing Thyroid Surgery
This study was designed to demonstrate the non-inferiority of MEDICURTAIN® (investigational device) compared to commercially available GUARDIX-SG® (control device) in treatment of subject who underwent total thyroidectomy for prevention of adhesion formation at 6 weeks after the surgery.
This clinical trial is a randomized, multi center, subject and evaluator blinded, parallel, comparative and non-inferiority clinical trial study to assess the prevention of adhesion formation in the subjects treated either MEDICURTAIN® or GUARDIX-SG at 6 weeks after total thyroidectomy. The primary endpoint was defined as abnormal findings of esophageal motility evaluated by the independent third evaluator using marshmallow esophagography. The objective of this study was to demonstrate the non-inferiority of investigational device versus control device for adhesion formation at 6 weeks after the administration of investigational or control devices. Esophageal motility score and clinical symptoms assessed by the independent third evaluator using marshmallow esophagography at 6 weeks after administration of investigational device were secondary outcome. ;
