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: The implications of intraluminal thrombus (ILT) in abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) are currently unclear. Previous studies have demonstrated that ILT provides a biomechanical advantage by decreasing wall stress, whereas other studies have associated ILT with aortic wall weakening. It is further unclear why some aneurysms rupture at much smaller diameters than others. In this study, we sought to explore the association between ILT and risk of AAA rupture, particularly in small aneurysms...

BACKGROUND: Malignant transformation of endometriosis in the abdominal wall is a rare and still poorly understood event. Less than 30 cases have been reported in the worldwide literature. Most cases of solid tumors are report in a previous abdominal scar with malignant transformation of a focus of endometriosis. Presence of lymph node metastases in nearby chains is frequent and is associated with poor prognosis. CASE REPORT: We report a case of a 42-year-old woman with a history of abdominal surgery (Pfannenstiel) to resect abdominal wall endometriosis...

The biomechanics-based Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) rupture risk assessment has gained considerable scientific and clinical momentum. However, such studies have mainly focused on information at a single time point, and little is known about how AAA properties change over time. Consequently, the present study explored how geometry, wall stress-related and blood flow-related biomechanical properties change during AAA expansion. Four patients with a total of 23 Computed Tomography-Angiography (CT-A) scans at different time points were analyzed...

The increase of reconstructive microsurgery procedures leads to the development of various technologies. Before being validated in human clinical studies, these technologies and devices need to be validated on animal models. We present a simple, reliable and reproducible model of a cutaneous flap in pigs. This flap is pedicled on the superficial inferior epigastric pedicle (SIEP). The surgical technique is described. This flap can be buried and, if necessary, harvested on both sides. It did not alter the abdominal wall, and so it has allowed painless long-term follow-up of the animals...

BACKGROUND: Soft tissue sarcomas are rare neoplasms that can occur in the thoracic wall, abdominal wall, extremities, and inguinal region. Wide local resection, with precise histological margin control, results in large skin defects that are challenging to close. Various repair procedures, such as vertical rectus abdominis flaps (VRAM), latissimus dorsi flaps, and tensor fascia lata (TFL) flaps are used to cover broad thoracic wall defects. Although the cosmetic reconstruction results of using these flaps are often excellent, each has significant drawbacks...

BACKGROUND: The abdominal wall is frequently manipulated in a variety of reconstructive procedures, and its anatomy is well described. Our clinical observations, however, contradict the standard depiction of the components of the abdominal wall at various levels - particularly regarding the course of the transversus abdominis muscle (TA). Therefore, we sought to characterize the components of the rectus sheath at various anatomic levels corresponding to surgical landmarks in order to define key points relevant to abdominal wall repair...

BACKGROUND: The prognosis of stage IV gastric cancer (GC) still remains unfavorable. Multidisciplinary approaches should therefore be considered to improve the survival of patients with stage IV GC. We report here a case of primary GC with potentially unresectable metastasis, successfully treated by a multidisciplinary approach including chemotherapy, immunotherapy, and surgery. CASE PRESENTATION: A 74-year-old man presented with multiple left neck masses. Abdominal computed tomography showed a thickened gastric wall and multiple lymphadenopathies including left supraclavicular lymph node...

The pedicled transverse rectus abdominis myocutaneous (TRAM) flap procedure is still widely used for breast reconstruction. The repair of the flap harvest site in the transverse rectus abdominis muscle and sheath is often assisted by the use of prosthetic meshes. This decreases the risk of abdominal wall weakness and herniation but, being a foreign body, it also carries the risk of infection. In this report, we describe the case of a 63-year-old patient who, whilst receiving chemotherapy for metastatic breast cancer, presented with an infected polytetrafluoroethylene mesh 15 years after pedicled TRAM flap immediate breast reconstruction...

In the surgical management of large incisional hernias, the main target is the closure of the abdominal wall defect on the midline without a dangerous increase in the intraabdominal pressure. In this setting, new intraperitoneal prosthesis and components separation techniques were proposed to solve this problem. Both solutions present some critical issues. A new surgical approach with a free lateral double layer prosthesis totally in polypropylene both sides (FLaPp(®)) is proposed to overcome this problem...

Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans with fibrosarcomatous differentiation (DFSP-FS) is a rare soft tissue tumor with more aggressive behavior and it is not clear what causes this type of skin cancer. We describe the case of a 48-year-old woman who was born with a vascular malformation in the sternal region and presented suddenly with a soft tissue sarcoma (DFSP-FS) in the same territory. She was initially treated by embolization as the sarcoma was misdiagnosed but the tumor within 6 months seemed to be growing rapidly and reached a giant dimension with ulceration and required surgical intervention...

Despite advances in trauma care, a subset of patients surviving damage control cannot achieve fascial closure and require split-thickness skin grafting (STSG) of their open abdomen. Controversy exists as to whether reconstruction of the gastrointestine (GI) should be staged or performed at the time of abdominal wall reconstruction (AWR). Many surgeons do not believe that operations through the STSG can be completed safely or without loss of graft. This series reviews the outcomes of operations for GI reconstruction performed through the elevated healed STSG...

Ideal fixation techniques have not been fully elucidated at the time of complex open abdominal wall reconstruction (AWR). We compared operative outcomes and quality of life with retromuscular mesh fixation using fibrin glue (FG) versus transfascial sutures (TS). Retrospective review identified complex hernia patients who underwent open AWR with mesh from November 2012 through April 2016. Multivariate analysis examined postoperative outcomes between groups. Quality of life was assessed using the Carolinas Comfort Scale...

INTRODUCTION: Contaminated abdominal fascial defects, such as those seen in enterocutaneous fistula, or wound dehiscence with mesh exposure, are a significant source of morbidity and present unique reconstructive challenges. We present our technique of using the fascia lata, augmented with an interpositional omental flap, for complete autologous reconstruction of contaminated fascial defects, and the postoperative results of 3 cases. METHODS: Three patients with contaminated abdominal defects underwent wound debridement/fistula resection and immediate reconstruction with fascia lata and omentum flap...

A Pearce, L Thornton, P A Sutton, C J Walsh
INTRODUCTION: Abdominal wall reconstruction using posterior component separation with transversus abdominis release (AWTAR) produces a unique post-operative CRP profile, when compared to routine elective colorectal operations. Therefore, we aim to establish the normal post-operative C-reactive protein (poCRP) profile following AWRTAR and reduce the unnecessary invasive interventions in patients already at greater risk of septic complications. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of daily poCRP levels was performed both for patients who underwent uncomplicated AWRTAR (n=12), and a comparator group of uncomplicated open right hemicolectomies (RH) matched for age and sex (n=24)...

BACKGROUND: Open abdominal wall reconstruction (AWR) was previously one of the only methods available to treat complex ventral hernias. We set out to identify the impact of laparoscopy and robotics on our AWR program by performing an economic analysis before and after the institution of minimally invasive AWR. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed inpatient hospital costs and economic factors for a consecutive series of 104 AWR cases that utilized separation of components technique (57 open, 38 laparoscopic, 9 robotic)...

BACKGROUND: It is highly desirable in clinical abdominal MR scans to accelerate single-shot fast spin echo (SSFSE) imaging and reduce blurring due to T2 decay and partial-Fourier acquisition. PURPOSE: To develop and investigate the clinical feasibility of wave-encoded variable-density SSFSE imaging for improved image quality and scan time reduction. STUDY TYPE: Prospective controlled clinical trial. SUBJECTS: With Institutional Review Board approval and informed consent, the proposed method was assessed on 20 consecutive adult patients (10 male, 10 female, range, 24-84 years)...
