BACKGROUND Porcine small intestinal submucosa (SIS) has been studied for body wall repair. However, the best method to implant the biological material has not been investigated. The objective of this study was to compare tensile strengths achieved after healing when SIS was placed using three implant techniques (onlay, inlay, underlay) in a porcine model of abdominal wall defect. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty female domestic pigs had three abdominal midline sites assigned to one of five test… CONTINUE READING
