Surgeons at University of California San Diego Perform 1st TRAM Flap Procedure in an International Multi-Center Study Using TIGR® Matrix Surgical Mesh, the World's 1st Long-Term Resorbable Mesh
Date:1/25/2011

SINGAPORE, Jan. 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Novus Scientific Pte. Ltd, a Singapore company, announced today that Dr. James Chao of the University of California San Diego (UCSD) has operated on his first TRAM Flap patient using TIGR® Matrix Surgical Mesh.

This is part of the international multi-center, randomized trial "Abdominal Wall Closure After Lipectomy, TRAM/DIEP Flap – Comparison of TIGR® Matrix (100% Resorbable) vs Polypropylene (Permanent) Mesh". This ground-breaking study involves UCSD in the U.S. as well as the National University Hospital and Tan Tock Seng Hospitals in Singapore.

"We're pleased to operate on our 1st patient for this study as we certainly see a trend towards bio-absorbable meshes and a move away from permanent meshes in abdominal wall and hernia repairs. TIGR® Matrix potentially gives the body optimal time to grow strong, functional tissue, yet avoids long-term complications associated with permanent meshes. We will be monitoring the patient with great interest during follow up." - James J. Chao, MD FACS, Study Investigator, Professor of Plastic Surgery and Orthopedic Surgery, University of California, San Diego (UCSD) Medical Centre

"We're very pleased to have Professor James Chao of UCSD as a collaborator in this multi-center study as he brings a wealth of experience and expertise to this area. If this study confirms TIGR® Matrix to be significantly better, this will influence our TRAM Flap treatment protocol to use a long-term 100% resorbable mesh rather than a permanent polypropylene mesh in the future. I'm sure surgeons and patients will be delighted to have a 100% synthetic option available that avoids long-term mesh complications."- Associate Professor
