Incisional hernias due to trauma, infection, or tumor are a common abdominal wall defect. Repair of these defects when autogenous tissue is insufficient or inadequate often results in abdominal tissue adhesion. These adhesions often lead to complications such as intestinal obstruction and enterocutaneous fistula. Previous reports have shown that application of prosthetic materials, such as polypropylene mesh and anionic polysaccharides, has been effective in reducing the amount of tissue… CONTINUE READING
