Fig. 1. Representative example of surgical placement of the ultra-thick amniotic membrane. A 74-year-old Caucasian male that had multiple risk factors including former smoker, heart failure, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease underwent laparoscopic-assisted low anterior resection surgery for diverticulitis. During the procedure, 140 mm colon was resected followed by end-to-end anastomosis. Two 6 cm × 3 cm ultra-thick amniotic membranes (A) were sutured together lengthwise (B) and then sutured over the anastomosis site (C).
