BACKGROUND: There is no consensus agreement on the optimal management strategy for ventral hernia in women of childbearing age. The theoretical increased risk of ventral hernia recurrence can impact management strategies. We conducted a systematic review of the literature to report the ventral hernia recurrence rate in women of childbearing age who underwent hernia repair prior to their pregnancy and propose a management algorithm. METHODS: We systematically searched multiple databases including MEDLNE, PubMed, and the Cochrane Library sources from inception to August, 2017...

PURPOSE: To provide guidelines for all surgical specialists who deal with the open abdomen (OA) or the burst abdomen (BA) in adult patients both on the methods used to close the musculofascial layers of the abdominal wall, and regarding possible materials to be used. METHODS: The guidelines were developed using the Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation (GRADE) approach including publications up to January 2017. When RCTs were available, outcomes of interest were quantitatively synthesized by means of a conventional meta-analysis...

INTRODUCTION: Incisional hernias to the subxiphoid region are rare and anatomically challenging, with bony and cartilaginous structures attaching, as well as conflating abdominal fascia. The repair of hernias in this region is, therefore, difficult and prone to recurrence. The surgical treatment can be done by open or laparoscopic repair but very little is known about which method is superior. We, therefore, reviewed our data of patients undergoing repair of subxiphoid hernias. METHODS: Between January 2010 and June 2015 twenty-eight patients were treated by laparoscopic (n = 8) or open (n = 20) hernia repair due to an incisional hernia in the subxiphoid region...

BACKGROUND:  Infectious complications following mesh implantation for abdominal wall repair appear in 0.7 up to 26.6% of hernia repairs and can have a detrimental impact for the patient. To prevent or to treat mesh-related infection, the scientific community is currently developing a veritable arsenal of antibacterial meshes. The numerous and increasing reports published every year describing new technologies indicate a clear clinical need, and an academic interest in solving this problem...

INTRODUCTION: Internal hernias (IH) are late complications of bariatric surgery, specifically gastric bypass and manifest with diffuse abdominal pain and/or intestinal obstruction. They have a low incidence, however, are increasingly common in patients undergoing laparoscopic gastric bypass (LGBP). Petersen's internal hernia is one of the most frequent internal hernias following Bariatric surgery. METHODS: We describe our experience at a third-level surgical center using a prophylactic Petersen's space herniorrhaphy immediately following LGBP as a preventative strategy for post-bariatric internal hernias...

PURPOSE: To propose a new clinical classification for pediatric inguinal hernias modified from a similar classification system for adult inguinal hernia and to propose a tailored repair for each type. The impact of this approach on hernia recurrence will be assessed. METHODS: This prospective and retrospective cross-sectional study was conducted in two tertiary teaching university hospitals in Egypt (Alexandria and Tanta University Children's Hospitals) from January 2013 to December 2014 on children below 12 years of age with indirect inguinal hernias who were divided into two groups: (a) prospective group I, classified according to our proposed pediatric hernia classification and tailored treatment (PHCTT) into types: pediatric Nyhus 1 (PNI) assigned for herniotomy alone, pediatric Nyhus II (PNII) assigned for herniotomy plus deep ring narrowing, and type pediatric Nyhus III (PNIII) assigned for herniotomy plus posterior wall repair...

PURPOSE: To compare adhesion scores, repair strength and histological findings among sublay, onlay and primary repair incisional hernioplasty techniques. Surgical repairs were employed directly on healthy animals, without previous hernia induction, to avoid confounding factors related to hernia development. METHODS: Forty Wistar rats were divided into four groups, control, simulation, onlay and sublay. After 42 days, adhesion intensity, tensile strength of the abdominal wall and anatomopathological histological substrate were compared...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic ventral hernia repair (LVHR) has gained popularity, since it can decrease the incidence of surgical site complications while providing similar recurrence rates as open repairs. The role of defect closure in LVHR has been a subject of controversy and has not been fully elucidated. We aimed to compare outcomes of LVHR with and without defect closure in a contemporary cohort. METHODS: Single-institution retrospective review of consecutive adults undergoes elective LVHR for 2-8 cm defects...

PURPOSE: Recurrence after laparoscopic inguinal herniorrhaphy is poorly understood. Reports suggest that up to 13% of all inguinal herniorrhaphies worldwide, irrespective of the approach, are repaired for recurrence. We aim to review the risk factors responsible for these recurrences in laparoscopic mesh techniques. METHODS: A search of the Medline, Embase, Science Citation Index, Current Contents and PubMed databases identified English language, peer reviewed articles on the causes of recurrence following laparoscopic mesh inguinal herniorrhaphy published between 1990 and 2018...

PURPOSE: Synthetic non-absorbable meshes are routinely used in hernia surgery for clean cases but are avoided in the case of clean-contaminated or contaminated hernia or dirty cases to minimize the risk of infection. The present study was conducted to evaluate the outcome of polypropylene mesh in the settings of bowel resection performed for strangulated hernias of the abdominal wall. METHODS: This prospective observational study was conducted in the Department of Surgery of a teaching hospital in central India between 1st March 2015 and 31st Aug 2017...

PURPOSE: Lightweight meshes (LWM) have shown benefits compared to heavyweight meshes (HWM) in terms of less postoperative pain and stiffness in open inguinal hernia repair. It appears to have similar advantages also in TEP, but concerns exist if it may be associated with higher recurrence rates. The aim of the study was to compare reoperation rate for recurrence of LWM to HWM in laparoscopic totally extra-peritoneal (TEP) repair. METHODS: All groin hernias operated on with TEP between 1 January 2005 and 31 December 2013 at surgical units participating in The Swedish Hernia Register were eligible...

IPOM has become a common term used by hernia surgeons. It refers to the treatment of a ventral hernia using an intraperitoneal placed mesh and most consider it an acronym for Intra-Peritoneal Onlay Mesh. Since intraperitoneal placement of mesh has fallen out of favor with some hernia surgeons and key-opinion-leaders recently, this might be the correct time to write down and preserve the history of this intriguing acronym.

PURPOSE: Given the difficulty of durable repairs, there is continued interest in hernia prevention. One emerging prevention technique for parastomal hernias is prophylactic mesh placement, whereby mesh is inserted during the index procedure as hernia prophylaxis. We evaluated our experience using prophylactic mesh when creating an ileal conduit. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed patients undergoing robotic cystectomy with ileal conduit from 6/2010 to 8/2017. Patient demographics and operative/perioperative outcomes were documented...
