On Monday, 23 November 2020 Y. (Yağmur) Yurtkap will defend her dissertation entitled: ‘New Fundamental and Clinical Perspectives on Abdominal Wall Hernia Research'.
This thesis focused on improving closure techniques for the linea alba and subsequently preventing incisional hernia formation. Additionally, treatments for giant and contaminated abdominal wall hernias were studied in several experiments. Finally, clinical questions regarding prevention, risk for incarceration and the treatment of (mainly) incisional hernias were answered.
Due to Corona, the PhD defences do not take place publicly in the usual way in the Senate Room or the Professor Andries Querido Room. The candidates will defend their dissertation either in a small group or online.
