Study: 24% Complication Rate with AlloDerm Grafts

Posted on July 22nd, 2011 No Comments

The overall complication rate associated with the AlloDerm hernia repair patch is 24 percent, a new study says.

According to a study published in the medical journal “Hernia,” the complication rate among patients who were implanted with an AlloDerm mesh patch during hernia surgery was as high as 24 percent, with most of the complications resulting in hernia recurrence. The study also noted one incident of rejection and two infections.

Another study published recently found that approximately 8 percent of patients outfitted with the AlloDerm graft required explants surgery, compared to 1.6 percent in control groups.

AlloDerm is a tissue matrix developed by LifeCell and released in 1994. The graft was originally intended for burn patients, as it promotes tissue growth allowing patients cells to repopulate the treated area. The patch is made from donated human cadaver skin. It is now used primarily in hernia repair operations, but the product is also used in facial and breast reconstruction.
