ARTISS will be used as an adjuvant to standard of care.
Biological: FS VH S/D 4 s-apr (= two-component fibrin sealant, double virus inactivated, made from pooled human plasma)
Dosage form: spray (aerosolized sealant), Dosage frequency: once (1 layer). ARTISS will be applied onto the fascia or the wound bed.
Other Name: ARTISS

Standard of care
- Total Drainage Volume Collected Until Drain Removal [ Time Frame: Day 0 (Surgery Day) to Day 90 ]Drainage fluids were to be collected through the Blake drain and into the collection bulb. The drainage volume was measured and recorded daily until the removal of the drain. During scheduled visits, measurement was to be performed at the study site, and on non-visit day recording of the drainage volume was to be done by a visiting home care nurse (or other study personnel). The drain was ready to be removed when the drainage volume in a given 24 hour period was <=30 cc.
- Occurrence of Seroma [ Time Frame: Day 0 (Surgery Day) to Day 90 ]The investigator inspected each subject post surgery (Day 0) an each scheduled visit (Day 3, 7, 14, 28, 60, 90) to determine whether there were any areas on the abdominal wall that meet the definition of seroma. A seroma is a pocket of clear serous fluid that sometimes develops in the body after surgery. This fluid is composed of blood plasma that has seeped out of ruptured small blood vessels and inflammatory fluid produced by the injured and dying cells.
- Occurrence of Hematoma [ Time Frame: Day 0 (Surgery Day) to Day 90 ]The investigator inspected each subject post surgery (Day 0) an each scheduled visit (Day 3, 7, 14, 28, 60, 90) to determine whether there were any areas on the abdominal wall that meet the definition of hematoma. A hematoma is a collection of blood outside of a blood vessel.
- Time to Drain Removal [ Time Frame: Day 0 (Surgery Day) up to Day 90 ]The drain was ready to be removed when the drainage volume in a given 24 hour period was <=30cc.
- Number of Fluid Aspiration for Seromas [ Time Frame: Day 0 (Surgery Day) to Day 90 ]Number of interventions recorded.
- Total Volume of Fluid Aspirations for Seromas [ Time Frame: Day 0 (Surgery Day) to Day 90 ]Volume of fluid recovered was recorded.
- Change From Baseline in Postoperative Skin Sensitivity 2 Inches Above Umbilicus [ Time Frame: Days 0 (Baseline), 3, 7, 14, 28, 60, 90 ]
Test administered on abdomen midline using a set of different size Semmes-Weinstein monofilaments. These instruments are used to measure the cutaneous sensory perception threshold of patients. Each monofilament represents a unique amount of force. The force applied by each monofilament increases with each ascending size. Testing begins with small to large monofilaments. A higher score indicates a greater loss of sensation.

- Change From Baseline in Postoperative Skin Sensitivity 1 Inch Below Umbilicus [ Time Frame: Days 0 (Baseline), 3, 7, 14, 28, 60, 90 ]Test administered on abdomen midline using a set of different size Semmes-Weinstein monofilaments. These instruments are used to measure the cutaneous sensory perception threshold of patients. Each monofilament represents a unique amount of force. The force applied by each monofilament increases with each ascending size. Testing begins with small to large monofilaments, pressing at a 90 degree angle for approximately 1.5 seconds against the skin until it bows then it is removed. The patient is instructed to respond when a stimuli is felt, and a score is applied based on the monofilament in use. A higher score indiactes a greater loss of sensation.
- Summary of Pain Assessment by Visit [ Time Frame: Day 3, 7, 14, 28, 60, 90 ]Subjects were to be presented with a non-verbal visual analogue scale (VAS) to measure the level of pain (rating 0 [no pain] to 10 [worst possible pain]) the patient experienced at the site of surgery at the time of the visit.
- Summary of Numbness Assessment by Visit [ Time Frame: Day 3, 7, 14, 28, 60, 90 ]Subjects were to be presented with a non-verbal VAS to measure the level of numbness (rating 0 [no numbness] to 10 [complete numbness]) that the patient experienced at the time of the visit.
