BACKGROUND: Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) use for ventral hernia repair has increased over the last decade. Whether outcomes are improved by robotic assistance remains a subject of debate. The aim of this study is to evaluate outcomes (including cost, complications, length of stay (LOS), and pain medication utilization) in patients who underwent an open (OVHR), laparoscopic (LVHR), or robotic (RVHR) ventral hernia repair (VHR). METHODS: The Vizient database was queried using ICD-9 procedure and diagnosis codes for patients who underwent VHR from January 2013 to September 2015...

Pathologists rely on microscopy to diagnose disease states in tissues and organs. They utilize both high-resolution, high-magnification images to interpret the staining and morphology of individual cells, as well as low-magnification overviews to give context and location to these cells. Intravital imaging is a powerful technique for studying cells and tissues in their native, live environment and can yield sub-cellular resolution images similar to those used by pathologists. However, technical limitations prevent the straightforward acquisition of low-magnification images during intravital imaging, and they are hence not typically captured...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic ventral hernia repair (LVHR) is associated with decreased wound morbidity compared to open repair. It remains unclear whether primary fascial closure (PFC) offers any benefit in reducing postoperative seroma compared to bridged repair. We hypothesized that PFC would have no effect on seroma formation following LVHR. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study was performed using data from the prospectively maintained Americas Hernia Society Quality Collaborative...

BACKGROUND: It is not yet clearly known whether laparoscopic ventral hernia repair (LVHR) is superior to the open approach in recurrent hernias. The aim of this study is to determine the safety and efficacy of laparoscopic technique for ventral hernias and investigate whether these outcomes are affected by the number of previous failed repairs. METHODS: Data from 124 consecutive patients who underwent LVHR using a standardized technique between September 2007 and June 2014 were collected prospectively...

Laparoscopic ventral hernia repair (LVHR) remains a safe, reproducible, and popular method employed by surgeons to repair abdominal wall hernias. Patient selection, operative technique, instrumentation, and implant choice all remain surgeon dependent. Inherent in the technique is the option of using mesh. The decision of where to place the mesh and how to optimally fixate the mesh in the onlay, sublay, or intraabdominal positions also remain surgeon dependent and has been the subject of ongoing debates for the past two decades...

INTRODUCTION: Abdominoplasty procedures sometimes reveal the presence of ventral hernias (umbilical or trocar-site hernias). Our objective is then to deal with the excess abdominal skin and fat tissue at the same time as the ventral hernia. This can be done with a single surgical procedure combining abdominoplasty with umbilical transposition and laparoscopic ventral hernia repair (LVHR) with mesh. The main objective of our study is to assess the outcome of the combined procedure of abdominoplasty and LVHR with mesh, compared to abdominoplasty alone...

INTRODUCTION: Laparoscopic ventral hernia repair (LVHR) with intraperitoneal mesh placement is well established; however, the fate of patients requiring future abdominal operations is not well understood. This study identifies the characteristics of LVHR patients undergoing reoperation and the sequelae of reoperation. METHODS: A retrospective review of a prospectively maintained database at a hernia referral center identified patients who underwent LVHR between 2005 and 2014 and then underwent a subsequent abdominal operation...

BACKGROUND: Previous studies demonstrated laparoscopic ventral hernia repair (LVHR) to be associated with fewer short-term complications than open ventral hernia repair (OVHR). Little literature is available comparing LVHR and OVHR in chronic liver disease (CLD) patients. METHODS: Patients with model for end-stage liver disease score ≥9 who underwent elective ventral hernia repair in the National Surgical Quality Improvement Program Database were included. 30-day outcomes were compared between LVHR and OVHR after adjusting for hernia disease severity, baseline comorbidities and demographic factors...

Approximately 350,000 ventral hernia repairs are performed in the United States each year. Patients expect fast recovery after laparoscopic ventral hernia repair (LVHR) and undisturbed postoperative quality of life (QOL). We examined the utility of a brief, validated 10-point Linear Analog Self-Assessment coupled with the Visual Analog Scale pain scale to discern risk factors for decreased postoperative QOL. Between January 2011 and May 2013, we prospectively assessed patient-reported outcomes for patients who underwent LVHR...

William D Tobler, Kamal M F Itani
Laparoscopic repair of ventral hernias gained strong popularity in the late nineties with some of the early enthusiasm lost later in time. We review the current status and challenges of laparoscopy in ventral hernia repair and best practices in this area. We specifically looked at patient and hernia defect factors, technical considerations that have contributed to the successes, and some of the failures of laparoscopic ventral hernia repair (LVHR). Patients best suited for a laparoscopic repair are those who are obese and diabetic with a total defect size not to exceed 10 cm in width or a "Swiss cheese" defect...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopy, specifically the bridged mesh technique, is a popular means used for ventral hernia repair. While laparoscopy has decreased the incidence of surgical site infection (SSI), hernia recurrence rates remain unchanged. Some surgeons advocate laparoscopic primary fascial closure (PFC) with placement of intraperitoneal mesh to decrease recurrence rates. We hypothesize that in patients undergoing laparoscopic ventral hernia repair (LVHR), PFC compared to a bridged mesh repair decreases hernia recurrence rates...

INTRODUCTION: Seroma is one of the most common complications after laparoscopic ventral hernia repair (LVHR), even if the incidence brought in literature is varying because definition and criterions of evaluation employed in the different studies are not always the same. This study proposes a classification for seroma after LVHR based on ultrasound findings, useful for an assessment of this complication. MATERIALS AND METHODS: On 93 patients submitted to LVHR an ultrasound of the abdominal wall after 3, 7, 15, 21 and 28 days and subsequently at a distance of 3 and 6 months was performed postoperatively...

BACKGROUND: Obesity's influence on postoperative complications in either laparoscopic ventral hernia repair (LVHR) or open ventral hernia repair (OVHR) has yet to be defined. Although 30-day postoperative complications increase with higher body mass index (BMI), we propose LVHR minimizes surgical site infections (SSIs) and surgical site occurrences (SSOs) for given BMI categories. METHODS: Retrospective review of the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database (2009 to 2012) for patients aged 18 years or more undergoing elective ventral hernia repair...
