Reconstructive surgery with synthetic or biological materials is commonly performed to repair abdominal wall musculofascial defects that result from ventral hernias. A study was conducted to investigate the feasibility of using silk fibroin and chitosan blend (SFCS) scaffolds for ventral hernia repair in guinea pigs. We compared SFCS with biodegradable human acellular dermal matrix (HADM) and nonbiodegradable polypropylene mesh by implanting each to repair an incisionally created ventral hernia… CONTINUE READING
