Surgical Outcomes in Lateral Abdominal Wall Reconstruction: A Comparative Analysis of Surgical Techniques.

J Am Coll Surg 2019 Apr 15. Epub 2019 Apr 15.

Department of Plastic Surgery, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX.

Background: Lateral abdominal wall (LAW) myofascial defects are a challenging reconstructive problem, and no consensus exists on their surgical management. We hypothesized that mesh repairs anchored to the non-yielding LAW boundaries [pillar-anchored repairs (PARs)] would provide more durable reconstructions with lower hernia recurrence and bulge occurrence rates compared to mesh repairs anchored to the surrounding oblique muscle complexes [direct repairs (DRs)].

Study Design: We retrospectively reviewed LAW reconstructions at a single center from 2004-2010. Read More

Multi-dimensional bioinspired tactics using an engineered mussel protein glue-based nanofiber conduit for accelerated functional nerve regeneration.

Acta Biomater 2019 Apr 9. Epub 2019 Apr 9.

Department of Chemical Engineering, Pohang University of Science and Technology, Pohang 37673, Republic of Korea. Electronic address:

Limited regenerative capacity of the nervous system makes treating traumatic nerve injuries with conventional polymer-based nerve grafting a challenging task. Consequently, utilizing natural polymers and biomimetic topologies became obvious strategies for nerve conduit designs. As a bioinspired natural polymer from a marine organism, mussel adhesive proteins (MAPs) fused with biofunctional peptides from extracellular matrix (ECM) were engineered for accelerated nerve regeneration by enhancing cell adhesion, proliferation, neural differentiation, and neurite formation.
