Brief Summary:
The REBUILD Study is a first-in-human evaluation of the safety and performance of REBUILD Bioabsorbable.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Laparotomy Device: REBUILD Bioabsorbable Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
REBUILD is an investigational medical device designed to be used with third-party suture to distribute suture tension in abdominal wall closures. In this study, REBUILD will be used in oncology patients undergoing an open, elective, intent-to-cure, laparotomy procedure. The study is a prospective, non-randomized, multi-center study designed to generate descriptive data about the use of REBUILD. The primary safety outcome is reported device-related adverse events. The primary performance outcome is the integrity of the abdominal wall over one year assessed by clinical examination of the abdomen. If available, CT studies performed within 12 months post-procedure will be used to confirm apposition of the medial border of the rectus muscles and integrity of the abdominal wall.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 30 participants
Allocation: N/A
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Intervention Model Description: Prospective, multi-center, single-arm, feasibility study
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Prospective, Multi-Center, Single Arm, Feasibility Study Using REBUILD Bioabsorbable™ for Closure of the Abdominal Wall After Oncologic Laparotomy
Actual Study Start Date : June 17, 2022
Estimated Primary Completion Date : March 2023
Estimated Study Completion Date : June 2023

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: REBUILD
Subjects who meet the inclusion criteria and agree to participate in the study will be enrolled and undergo oncologic laparotomy per the standard of care. The abdominal wall will be closed with REBUILD Bioabsorbable and suture of the surgeon's choice.
Device: REBUILD Bioabsorbable
REBUILD is an investigational medical device designed to be used with third-party suture to distribute suture tension in abdominal wall closures.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Adverse Events [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    The number of device-related adverse events

  2. Performance [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    The number of subjects with abdominal wall integrity at 3-, 6-, and 12-months post-surgery. Abdominal wall integrity will be assessed via clinical examination of the abdomen to identify a fascial defect, bulge, reducible palpable mass, or discomfort with a cough impulse. Standard of care CT or MR imaging that is performed within 12 months of the surgery will be evaluated to confirm apposition of the medial border of the rectus abdominis muscles and integrity of the abdominal wall.
