The Wittmann Patch™ is a Velcro-like temporary abdominal prosthesis used for bridging abdominal wall openings where primary closure is not possible, and for repeat laparotomies. It allows for gradual closure of the fascial edges, minimizing or avoiding the big hernias associated with the open abdomen. There is only one size for the hospital to stock and no expiration date on the sterile package.
