Manufacturer Narrative
Conclusion: upon review of the article received, there is one death event listed in the randomization table for biological mesh at the end of the article but not in the results section or in complication data. We do not know if this death event is outside the study or if the patient completed the study. The device has not been returned to allergan for evaluation. Based on limited information, a relationship between the event and the strattice could not be determined. Due to lack of information, strattice as a contributing factor cannot be ruled out. Lifecell reports the event in abundance of caution. Multiple attempts to obtain additional information are being made; however to date, no further information has been obtained. Article citation: ¿preventing recurrence in clean and contaminated hernias (price): a randomized trial of biologic versus synthetic mesh in ventral hernia repair¿, hobart w. Harris, md, et. Al.
Event Description
During a literature review of a study manuscript titled ¿preventing recurrence in clean and contaminated hernias (price): a randomized trial of biologic versus synthetic mesh in ventral hernia repair¿ by hobart w. Harris, md, et. Al. , was identified which reported hernia repairs for 163 patients operated on by one of eight surgeons participating in the study. Of these patients , 81 were implanted with strattice. Following implantation surgery for hernia repair, one death was documented, the cause of which was not stated. As it is unknown which patients experienced which events, this record has been created to capture the event of death. The affected location was not specified for the patients; therefore, the location will be captured as unknown. The overall conclusion reported that use of biologic mesh rather than synthetic mesh to repair potentially contaminated or contaminated ventral hernias increases the risk of hernia recurrence without a reduction in postoperative complications.
