PURPOSE: Incisional hernia remains a frequent complication after abdominal surgery associated with significant morbidity and high costs. Animal and clinical studies have exhibited some limitations. The purpose of this study was to develop an artificial human abdominal wall (AW) simulator in order to enable investigations on closure modalities. We hypothesized that a physical model of the human AW would give new insight into commonly used suture techniques representing a substantial complement or alternative to clinical and animal studies...

PURPOSE: Healthcare professional engagement is increasing. This study aims to identify levels of adoption and engagement of several social media platforms by a large international cohort of hernia surgery specialists. METHODS: Hernia specialists attending the 38th International Congress of the European Hernia Society were identified. A manual search was then performed on Twitter, ResearchGate, and LinkedIn to identify those who had named accounts. Where accounts were identified, data on markers of utilisation were assessed...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic hernia repair in infancy and childhood is still debatable. The objective of this study is to compare laparoscopic-assisted hernia repair (LH) versus open herniotomy (OH) as regards operative time, postoperative complications, recurrence rate, and contralateral metachronous hernia rate. METHODS: We analyzed all the patients with inguinal hernia who underwent surgery in our hospital from January 1, 2015 to December 31, 2015. There were 1125 patients, of which 202 patients received laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair (group A) and 923 patients received open herniotomy (group B)...

PURPOSE: Laparoscopic hernioplasty has become a popular choice for inguinal hernia repair since its advent in 1990s. Postoperative pain is an undesirable clinical outcome impairing daily activity of 22.5% of patients. The aim of this study is to evaluate postoperative acute and chronic pain via inflammatory markers as an objective assessment following tacks or glue mesh fixation in TEP repair. METHODS: Sixty-six (66) patients with unilateral uncomplicated inguinal hernia were randomized into 34 patients in the tacker and 32 patients in cyanoacrylate glue mesh fixation in TEP repair...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the short- and long-term results after a modified Chevrel technique for midline incisional hernia repair, regarding surgical technique, hospital stay, wound complications, recurrence rate, and postoperative quality of life. These results will be compared to the literature derived reference values regarding the original and modified Chevrel techniques. METHODS: In this large retrospective, single surgeon, single centre cohort all modified Chevrel hernia repairs between 2000 and 2012 were identified...

PURPOSE: Abdominal wall hernia is a common surgical condition, with more than 20 million estimated to be repaired each year. Mesh repair is the standard for most repairs; however, the mesh material itself may be a barrier to care, the cost prohibitively high for some populations and healthcare systems. The aim of this systematic review and meta-analysis was to produce a pooled comparison between the adverse event rate associated with mosquito net mesh and commercial hernia mesh. METHODS: A systematic review was carried out in accordance with PRISMA guidelines...

BACKGROUND: Incisional hernia is one of the most frequent complications after abdominal surgery, with incidences up to 30%. A reliable biomarker for the prediction of this complication is lacking. Advanced glycosylation end products (AGEs), also known as non-enzymatic collagen crosslinks, are correlated with aging, smoking, hyperglycemia, hyperlipidemia and oxidative stress. In this study the accumulation of AGEs and the relation between AGEs and incisional hernia were investigated. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In an exploratory case-control study, 23 patients with incisional hernia after midline incision were compared with 17 patients without clinical or radiological signs of incisional hernia after midline incision, AGEs were measured using a Skin Auto Fluorescence (SAF)-reader...

PURPOSE: Postoperative surgical complications arising from ventral hernia repair have been assessed by a variety of outcome measures. The objective of this study was to correlate the Clavien Dindo Classification (CDC) graded complications with the 30-day readmission rate as early outcome measures in ventral hernia repair. Secondarily, we wanted to investigate whether the risk factors for Clavien Dindo class ≥1 and 30-day readmission were comparable. METHODS: Single-centre retrospective study including all patients (≥18 years) who underwent ventral hernia repair between January 1, 2009 and September 1, 2014 at Zealand University Hospital...

PURPOSE: To compare clinical outcomes and institutional costs of elective laparoscopic and open incisional hernia mesh repairs and to identify independent predictors of prolonged operative time and hospital length of stay (LOS). METHODS: Retrospective observational cohort study on 269 consecutive patients who underwent elective incisional hernia mesh repair, laparoscopic group (N = 94) and open group (N = 175), between May 2004 and July 2014. RESULTS: Operative time was shorter in the laparoscopic versus open group (p < 0...

BACKGROUND: The potential utility of both non-absorbable and absorbable meshes to reinforce the esophageal hiatus and prevent recurrent hernia has been investigated in observational studies and a few randomized clinical trials. Use of absorbable mesh has been associated with lesser side-effects, but the long-term safety and effectiveness are still debated. This rather scanty clinical evidence is due to heterogeneity and bias regarding the type of mesh and operation used, the modalities of follow-up, and the reporting of objective results...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effect of constipation on the development of inguinal herniation and type of herniation using the Constipation severity scale. METHODS: A total of 100 patients who underwent surgical inguinal hernia repair (study group) and 100 healthy volunteers without inguinal herniation (control group) were included in this study. The constipation severity scale was administered to all patients. The type of the herniation was classified using Nyhus scale during surgery and the side of the herniation was recorded on completed questionnaires...

BACKGROUND: Knotting sutures by hand is still important in daily surgical routine, especially laparotomy closure. The expectation is that hand suturing relies on the experience and subjective estimation of the surgeon. The aim of this study was to investigate whether hand suturing tension is reproducible and if surgical experience influences reproducibility. METHODS: At the annual Congress of the German Association of Surgery, 118 surgeons performed repetitive sutures on a standardized and certified measuring device simulating the final knot of a fascial closure...

OBJECTIVE: A number of case reports have demonstrated FDG uptake around mesh prostheses after hernia repair surgery. This study characterizes FDG PET-CT findings after hernia repair with synthetic mesh in a series of cancer patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: FDG PET-CT studies were reviewed for increased FDG uptake consistent with CT appearances of post-surgical hernia repair in cancer patients. The findings were correlated with clinical data and follow-up studies...

PURPOSE: Colonic diverticulosis and abdominal wall hernia are common pathologies. Studies have suggested that connective tissue alterations play a role in the formation of both diverticulosis and abdominal wall hernia. The aim of this cohort study was to evaluate the association between diverticulosis and abdominal wall hernia in a large cohort of patients undergoing colonoscopy. METHODS: All consecutive patients who underwent colonoscopy between 2001 and 2013 at Bispebjerg Hospital were eligible for inclusion...
