Are you planning on having a hernia repaired?
Jean Brown Research is conducting a clinical research study for an investigational medication given after Hernia Repair surgery. Participants that qualify for the study may receive surgery, study-related care and medication at no cost to them. Qualified participants may also be compensated for their time and travel.
Basic qualifications are:
- Ages 18 and older
- Male or Female
- Generally in good health
- Have been planning on having a ventral hernia repair surgery
If you qualify you may receive:
- No cost hernia repair
- No cost study-related care
- No cost investigational medication
You also may be compensated for your time and travel related to the study.
To see if you qualify, please complete and submit your information or call 801-261-2000.
What is a Ventral Hernia?
A ventral hernia is a bulge (of tissues) through an opening, or defect, within the abdominal wall muscles. It can occur at any location on the abdominal wall. Many are called incisional hernias because they often form at the healed site of past surgical incisions where the skin has become weak or thin.
What is an Incisional Hernia?
An incisional hernia is a type of hernia caused by an incompletely-healed surgical wound. Since median incisions in the abdomen are frequent for abdominal exploratory surgery, ventral incisional hernias are often also classified as ventral hernias due to their location. Some hernias have no apparent cause or could be the result of a congenital weakness (something you were born with) in the abdominal wall.
Hernia Treatment Options
Not all hernias need immediate surgery, but if you are experiencing pain or your hernia is growing, you may need hernia surgery. Hernias can be repaired surgically or laparoscopically (a minimally invasive procedure).
