BACKGROUND: A considerable number of patients undergoing incisional hernia repair are on anticoagulant or antiplatelet therapy or have existing coagulopathy which may put them at higher risk for postoperative bleeding complications. Data about the optimal treatment of these patients are sparse. This analysis attempts to determine the rate of postoperative bleeding complications following incisional hernia repair and the consecutive rate of reoperation among patients with coagulopathy or receiving antiplatelet and anticoagulant therapy (higher risk group) compared to patients who do not have a higher risk (normal risk group)...

Re-laparotomy with resection of the mesh after abdominal incisional hernia repair may cause recurrence of the hernia and infection of the mesh. In the present study, we performed laparoscopic distal gastrectomy(LDG)for early gastric cancer without the resection of the mesh in such a case. A 82-year-old man who had undergone abdominal vascular replacement, cholecystectomy, abdominal incisional hernia repair with the mesh, sigmoidectomy had local recurrence of gastric cancer after endoscopic submucosal resection...

Laparoscopic incisional and ventral hernia repair (LIVHR) has been largely employed by the surgical community worldwide, despite the use of different types of mesh and fixation devices. A large nationwide prospective multicentric database collected 2005 operations from 8 high-volume centers, to investigate the perioeperative and long-term outcomes. The laparoscopic operations were completed in 1979 patients (98.7%), with a mean age of 60.7 years and a Body Mass Index of 28.8 kg/m2. Two hundred and one patient (18...

OBJECTIVE: Improvement of ventral hernia repair. BACKGROUND: Despite the use of mesh and other recent improvements, the currently popular techniques of ventral hernia repair have specific disadvantages and risks. METHODS: We developed the endoscopically assisted mini- or less-open sublay (MILOS) concept. The operation is performed transhernially via a small incision with light-holding laparoscopic instruments either under direct, or endoscopic visualization...

Over the years, incisional hernia repair has evolved. Currently, primary closure of the defect before placing the mesh is a critical step in incisional hernia repair and minimally invasive surgery incorporation has an important role due to great advantages. Despite its benefits, laparoscopic closure with suture intracorporeal knotting is physically demanding and technically complex. Robotic technology provides an optimal three-dimensional view, maneuverability of the instruments but no study has assessed the impact of the DaVinci system in the ergonomics which is the objective in this study...

BACKGROUND: The incidence of incisional hernia in pediatric patients is low in comparison with that reported in adults. In the pediatric population, primary closure has generally been favored. However, synthetic or biomedical mesh offers advantages in the repair of larger defects when primary closure is difficult. The use of laparoscopic intraperitoneal onlay mesh (IPOM) in the adult population has been well documented. In the pediatric population, a few laparoscopic approaches with direct suturing have been proposed; however, there are no reports of laparoscopic repair with the use of IPOM...

Despite extensive experience and significant reduction of complications in recent years, laparoscopic treatment of complex abdominal hernias is a challenge even for the experienced endoscopic surgeon. Patients with severe incisional hernias or symptomatic rectus diastasis benefit from the closure of the linea alba as a morphological and physiological reconstruction of the abdominal wall followed by mesh implantation. Occasionally, an additional component separation is necessary. In open surgery, this is associated with very large wound areas, postoperative seromas, poor wound healing and, in the worst case, mesh infections...

BACKGROUND: Obese patients are often required to lose weight prior to incisional hernia repair as obesity is thought to increase postoperative complications and recurrence rates. The aim of this study was to determine the impact of BMI on the outcome after laparoscopic and open incisional hernia repair. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In a cohort study from May 2012 to August 2016, 178 patients underwent incisional hernia repair: 90 patients open SUBLAY and 88 patients laparoscopic intraperitoneal onlay mesh (IPOM)...

PURPOSE: Although new techniques and prostheses have been introduced in ventral hernia surgery, abdominal hernia repair still presents complications, such as recurrence, pain, and discomfort. Thus, this work implements a computational method aimed at evaluating biomechanical aspects of the abdominal hernia laparoscopic repair, which can support clinical research tailored to hernia surgery. METHODS: A virtual solid model of the abdominal wall is obtained from MRI scans of a healthy subject...

Abdominal incisional hernia is a common postoperative complication. With the development of a new type of surgical anti-adhesion mesh, mesh repair has become a widely-adopted procedure, particularly in the laparoscopic era. However, there were few reports about use of these new meshes to repair incisional hernia in the abdominal cavity. In this report, we present two cases: one a 72-year-old male and the other a 62-year-old female. Both of those patients suffered incisional hernias during abdominal operations, and therefore underwent open incisional hernia anti-adhesion mesh repair operations...

INTRODUCTION: Suprapubic hernia is the term to describe ventral hernias located less than 4 cm above the pubic arch in the midline. Hernias with an upper margin above the arcuate line encounter technical difficulties, and the differences in repair methods forced us to define them as large suprapubic hernias. AIM: To present our experience with laparoscopic repair of large suprapubic hernias that allows adequate mesh overlap. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Nineteen patients with suprapubic incisional hernias who underwent laparoscopic repair between May 2013 and January 2015 were included in the study...

BACKGROUND: The ideal technique for ventral primary and incisional hernia repair is unclear. There is a paucity of literature from South African authors. In this report, a standardised technique of intraperitoneal mesh placement and fixation is described. METHOD: A retrospective study of 152 patient records. Each patient underwent laparoscopic ventral hernia repair between 2007 and 2016 by a single surgeon. A standardised technique was used in every operation. In each case a circumferential mesh overlap of 5 centimetres from the defect was achieved...

INTRODUCTION: Incisional hernia is not an uncommon complication after abdominal operation, and laparoscopic ventral hernia repair with mesh is commonly performed nowadays. It is thought to have less complication compare to the traditional open repair, yet late complication is still observed occasionally and can be disastrous. CASE REPORT: We hereby report a case of abdominal wall necrotizing fasciitis 21 months after laparoscopic incisional hernia repair in lower midline with dual mesh, due to mesh migration and erosion into urinary bladder, resulting in fistulation between bladder and abdominal wall...
