BACKGROUND AND AIM: Incisional hernia following laparotomy and recurrent herniation after its repair are still common problems in spite of mesh augmentation. The underlying biological mechanism may be related to collagen metabolism. Recently, some members of growth factors family have been tested in the prevention of wound failure and incisonal hernia formation. Growth factors may promote fibroblast proliferation and collagen deposition. In the present study, we searched the effects of basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) loaded polypropylene meshes in an incisional hernia model in rats...

INTRODUCTION: Recurrence rates for open repair of ventral/incisonal hernias historically range from 6% for the classic Rives-Stoppa repair to 35-45% for some of the techniques more commonly used in the United States. We report a modification to the classic Rives-Stoppa repair that allows intraperitoneal placement of the prosthetic, secured with a running suture. The abdominal muscles are closed over the mesh to protect it from any superficial wound problems that might develop and to restore normal architecture of the abdominal wall...

BACKGROUND: With the increasing experience in laparoscopic ventral and incisonal hernia repair this minimal invasive technique has also been used to repair parastomal hernias. Different types of laparoscopic repair have been described. METHODS: Laparoscopic repairs can mainly be divided in two groups: "keyhole-techniques" and "Sugarbaker techniques". We reviewed the literature and described our current technique, using a "modified Sugarbaker technique" in detail...

BACKGROUND: Open Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGBP) has proven to be an effective method for weight control for the morbidly obese patient. With technologic and surgical skill advancement in the application of laparoscopic surgery, laparoscopic RYGBP has also been found to be of value in surgical control of obesity. Risk/benefit ratios in comparison of the 2 methods are undergoing definition by experience. METHODS: 779 patients who underwent RYGBP between March 1, 2000 and June 30, 2002 were evaluated retrospectively...

The authors report a case of incisonal hernia occurring 5 years after laparoscopic treatment of extra-uterine pregnancy. This involved incarceration of the hepatic suspensor ligament during insertion of a 10 mm umbilical trocard. Laparoscopy permitted diagnosis and treatment of the hernia. Parietal complications after laparoscopy usually concern epigastric vascular lesions, infections at trocard sites, and residual abdominal wall pain. Incisonal umbilical and extra-umbilical hernias, described for the first time in 1968, are highly unusual complications, with an incidence of 21/100,000 in the Mintz study...
