Principal Investigator: Nikolay Bugaev

Gore has developed and manufactures the GORE® SYNECOR Intraperitoneal Biomaterial device (GORE® SYNECOR IP Device) to offer clinicians a mesh material intended for the repair of ventral/incisional hernias that may require the addition of a nonabsorbable reinforcing or bridging material. The primary study objective is to assess SYNECOR Biomaterial performance on incisional hernia patients over an extended amount of time through multiple methods. The secondary study objective is to conduct configuration-specific assessments to address areas of medical interest. Including; -Characterizing the frequency and significance of complications in patient populations of differing risk by Modified Ventral Hernia Working Group (mVHWG) grade (SYNECOR IP Device) -Characterizing the frequency and significance of complications in patient populations with the implanted Extended Size Mesh (SYNECOR PRE Device)
