BOMBIL, I; PUTTERGILL, B  e  NGUTSHANE, BS. Abdominal wall reconstruction with reconstructive tissue matrix. S. Afr. j. surg. [online]. 2018, vol.56, n.3, pp.30-31. ISSN 2078-5151.  http://dx.doi.org/10.17159/2078-5151/2018/v56n3a2430.

A giant desmoid tumour required full thickness excision of the lower abdominal wall. The resultant massive defect was closed with reconstructive tissue matrix (Strattice™). The mesh acted as successful scaffold for regenerative repair enabling skin grafting of a stable granulation bed giving a satisfactory mechanical and cosmetic result. This mesh should be explored further as a simpler alternative to complex plastic reconstructive techniques for large abdominal soft tissue defects.
