Single-Arm, Prospective, Multi-Center Observational Study of a Flexible Composite Next Generation Tissue Separating Mesh(NG-TSM)to Assess Ease of Use and Early Outcomes in Laparoscopic Incisional/Ventral Hernia Completed

Brief description: This is a multi-center, observational study of incisional/ventral hernia repair with NG-TSM laparoscopically. The study is not randomized and has a single treatment design assessing NG-TSM intra-operatively, its ease of use and handling characteristics.

Detailed description: The objectives of the study are to evaluate the ease of use of NG-TSM intra-operatively in laparoscopic incisional/ventral hernia repair, and assessing early outcomes post-operatively following mesh implantation, including seroma formation, hematoma, wound complications, infections, early recurrences, adverse events, and subject comfort, as well as health economic data to include quality of life, subject satisfaction data, time of procedure, length of stay, re-hospitalization, and extended hospitalization.
