What Does the Data Tell Us: Long Term Clinical Outcomes with 3D Mid-Term Absorbable Biomaterials in CAWR

October 18 @ 12:00 pm 12:20 pm

Matthew I. Goldblatt, M.D., FACS will lead the group in an interactive discussion on long term clinical outcomes with 3D mid-term absorbable biomaterials in CAWR.

What does the data tell us? This Innovation Theater symposium will provide general and plastic surgeons the opportunity to learn more or further refine their knowledge of different types of biomaterials utilized in abdominal wall and soft tissue reconstruction and hernia repair. Clinical discussions will be supported with didactic instruction, video case presentations and a question and answer session with participants.

Learning outcomes

Participants will:

  • Develop a better understanding of approaches to repairs, based on a review of the current data in the clinical literature on these repairs.
  • Expand their knowledge of mesh and biomaterials associated with complex hernia repairs.
  • Become knowledgeable about biomaterial choices, and the similarities and differences between biosynthetics, biologics and synthetic devices.
  • Understand patient risk factors that may influence choice of repair or biomaterial.
