BACKGROUND: The recurrence rate after groin hernia repair (GHR) has been estimated to be between 1-10% in adult patients. Neither national rates nor trends in recurrence over time have been reliably established for Medicare patients in the USA. MATERIALS: We evaluated patients undergoing GHR (inguinal = IHR; femoral = FHR) from 2011 to 2014 from the Medicare Provider Analysis and Review database. Patients were identified using ICD-9 diagnosis and ICD-9 and CPT procedure codes, stratified both by primary vs...

PURPOSE: Incisional hernia is a complication following abdominal operation. Patients undergoing liver transplantation have a high risk of developing incisional hernia because of immunosuppression. The purpose of this study was to evaluate incisional hernia after liver transplantation and to identify risk factors for hernia formation in those patients. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 1044 adult patients with more than 2 years of follow-up in patients who underwent liver transplantation from January 2000 to December 2015...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to evaluate using quilting sutures in a prospective randomized controlled manner the decrease in the incidence of seroma formation among patients subjected to ventral hernia repair. METHODS: The study was a prospective randomized controlled study. 370 patients with large ventral hernias were randomly distributed among two groups. Group A (control group) included 180 patients in whom the repair was done without quilting sutures...

Purpose Laparoscopic transperitoneal endoscopic (TAPP) and totally extraperitoneal (TEP) hernia repair have been well established in primary and recurrent inguinal hernias [1]. Only few studies [2-5] evaluate the surgical outcome of patients with inguinal hernias after radical prostatectomy, using the TAPP or TEP procedure. But controversies remain including its feasibility, safety and recurrence rate. The mesh size to be used and the necessity of a complete dissection of the scared retropubic space are discussed controversially...

PURPOSE: Infectious complications (ICs) after mesh-reinforced ventral hernioplasty often lead to prolonged and complicated hospitalizations. As early diagnosis and management can mitigate complications, early prediction is important. Our aim was to determine whether postoperative blood tests are valuable predictors of IC. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed 373 patients who underwent conventional ventral hernioplasty with mesh augmentation between 2008 and 2011...

PURPOSE: The occurrence of incisional hernia (IH) is one of the main complications after open abdominal surgery. However, its incidence in hepatobiliary and pancreatic surgery is not known. Studies on hepatectomy and necrotizing pancreatitis show that the incidence can reach up to 42%. This study aims at evaluating the incidence of IH and its risk factors. METHODS: Patients submitted to open hepatobiliary and pancreatic surgery at our centre between 2010 and 2016 were selected...

PURPOSE: Deciding between surgery and non-operative management of a non-obstructive ventral hernia (VH) in a high-risk patient often poses a clinical challenge. The aim of this study is to evaluate a national series of open and laparoscopic ventral hernia repair (VHR), and to assess predictors of mortality after elective VHR. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of 2008-2014 data from the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project-Nationwide Inpatient Sample was performed...

PURPOSE: Since 2004, composite prosthesis repair is the preferred procedure for umbilical hernia repair in our centre, although long-term results of this technique are lacking. The aim of this study was to analyze the long-term results of a cohort of patients who underwent umbilical hernia repair with this procedure. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study of patients who underwent umbilical hernia repair with composite prosthesis was conducted. Data were obtained from electronic medical records...

Since more and more hernia registries are being created and the number of patients included is increasing, knowledge of potential pitfalls in interpretation of registry data has to be known and dealt with. This invited commentary is to discuss some of these topics. The aim is to present and discuss the main shortcoming of register-based studies and how to deal with these problems, to contribute to more validated results and eventually improved surgical outcomes.

PURPOSE: As more mesh is implanted for hernia repairs, mesh-related complications may increase, with some requiring mesh removal. We describe our experience as to indications and perioperative factors that surround hernia mesh removal. METHODS: All patients who underwent hernia mesh removal from the abdomen (ventral, flank) and pelvis (inguinal, femoral, obturator, perineal) were captured from a single hernia center database. RESULTS: Over 4...

PURPOSE: Recurrence is a concerning area in pediatric inguinal hernia repair. Various laparoscopic repair methods are available to treat recurrent pediatric inguinal hernia. We analyzed previous laparoscopic hernia repairs and report the outcomes of laparoscopic inguinal hernia reoperations in patients with recurrent inguinal hernia. METHODS: Fifty-one patients who presented for recurrent inguinal hernia after laparoscopic hernia repair from September 2012 to May 2017 were retrospectively evaluated...

PURPOSE: Transversus abdominis muscle release (TAR) combines retromuscular mesh placement with posterior component separation and muscle release. TAR is usually an open technique for abdominal wall reconstruction; however, several centers have performed this operation robotically and claim better clinical outcomes when compared to open surgery. We sought to compare robotic versus open TAR utilizing a porcine model. METHODS: Animals were randomized to open versus robotic TAR with mesh placement, survived for 4 weeks, then underwent diagnostic laparoscopy to assess adhesive burden and adhesion tenacity...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to identify any potential correlation between postoperative mortality and bowel resection in patients with obturator hernias. METHODS: In total, 21 patients who underwent emergency surgery for a primary incarcerated obturator hernia during a 9-year period were retrospectively assessed regarding the correlation between postoperative mortality within 30 days from surgery and bowel resection. RESULTS: The 21 hernias occurred in 20 women and 1 man...

PURPOSE: The lumbar abdominal wall hernia is a rare hernia in which abdominal contents protrude through a defect in the dorsal abdominal wall, which can be of iatrogenic, congenital, or traumatic origin. Two anatomical locations are known: the superior and the inferior lumbar triangle. The aim of this systematic review is to provide a clear overview of the existing literature and make practical clinical recommendations for proper diagnosis and treatment of the primary lumbar hernia. METHODS: The systematic review was conducted according to the PRISMA guidelines...

BACKGROUND: The prevalence of incisional hernias (IHs) is still high after midline laparotomy (ML). There is an increasing body of evidence that prophylactic mesh placement (PMP) can be safe and efficient in the short-term outcomes, but there still are some concerns about the potential long-term complications of these meshes. This study describes our long-term PMP experience. METHODS: Observational and prospective study including all patients undergoing the use of prophylactic onlay large-pore polypropylene meshes for the closure of ML since 2008 to 2014...

PURPOSE: Surgical site infection is the most common hospital-acquired infection in surgical patients. Recently, public health organizations have updated prevention guidelines. This review discusses surgical site infections as a complication of abdominal wall reconstruction. METHODS: The authors reviewed guidelines on prevention of surgical site infections from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, World Health Organization, and National Institute for Health and Care Excellence and put them into context with the relevant abdominal wall reconstruction literature...

BACKGROUND: Complex ventral incisional hernia repair represents a challenging clinical condition in which biologically derived graft reinforcement is often utilized, but little long-term data inform that decision. Urinary bladder matrix (UBM) has shown effectiveness in diverse clinical settings as durable reinforcement graft material, but it has not been studied over a long term in ventral incisional hernia repair. This study evaluates the clinical, radiographic, and histological outcome of complex incisional hernia repair using UBM reinforcement with 12-70 months of follow-up...
