Mesh displacement, improper or blind application of metal tacks and staples in laparoscopic surgery are the main causes of complications such as seroma, postoperative pain and recurrence of hernia. The well-established use of fibrin glue, or self-gripping commercial meshes, or suture meshes to fix prosthesis to damaged tissue may represent a risk associated to the transmission of unknown diseases related to the use of blood-derived materials or pain caused by nerve entrapment or displacement. Moreover, it has been observed[1,5] that the use of fibrin glue for mesh fixation may be associated with incidence of postoperative seroma. An effective alternative to the conventional prosthesis fixation methods may be represented by devices able to adhere strongly and quickly[1,5] on wet biological tissue. In view of a possible application of BP as adhesive absorbable tape in surgery, preliminary in vivo experiments were carried out on large-size pigs. Methods: We investigated the potential applicability of BP, a self-standing felt composed of multi-walled carbon nanotubes, as an adhesive tape on biological tissue compared with traditional methods of fixation of prosthetic meshes. Based on biological materials from experimentation on rabbits (in progress) we carried out a comparative study on two sets of meshes: one of the sets was fixed with BP and the other set was fixed with traditional methods. We did this by carrying out bench surgery and performing mechanical peeling and shear adhesiveness tests on each set[5,8,9,10]. The in vivo experimentation was carried out on 30 Landrace female pigs weighing about 15 kg initially and 60 kg when they were sacrificed. The subjects were divided into two sets i.e., 15 for laparoscopic procedure and 15 for laparotomic procedure. Each group was further subdivided into an experimental set of 11 subjects for mesh fixation with BP and a control set of 4 subjects for traditional mesh fixation. Results: Experimental and control subsets did not show mortality or morbidity. Even after 90 days from the operation no significant neurovegetative or behavioral differences were observed. The BP fixing method shows stronger adhesiveness on wet tissues than the mentioned traditional fixing methods. Checks on body weight monitoring curves show no significant differences between BP and control groups. Necroscopical and histological investigations show that BP elicits minimal adverse tissue response. Nanometric carbon nanotube aggregates were phagocytized by macrophages. Further, BP fragments were also observed in Bowman's urinary space. Finally, around the BP, a capsule of loose fibrous tissue is formed by collagen fibers deposited by fibroblasts which indicate a moderate cicatrisation reaction. Conclusion: Findings from our experiment are compatible with a stronger adhesiveness on wet biological tissue for the BP fixing method compared to traditional methods. Further studies are required to fully assess the nature of the BP debris, their toxicity potential and their metabolization. References 1. B. P. Jacob, N. J. Hogle, E. Durak, T. Kim, D. L.
