Abstract

Background: Many studies have evaluated the use of grafts in the reconstruction of abdominal wall defects. In this study, the effects resulting from the presence or absence of the omentum were evaluated in the setting of infection or serosal defects in the formation of adhesions in abdominal closures using mesh grafts.
