Ventral hernia is a public health issue and millions of meshes are used to repair abdominal wall defects every year. Polypropylene-based composite meshes represent an important class of materials for intraperitoneal repair, but the meshes generally give rise to infection, seroma, migration, and adhesion, leading to severe consequence or even reoperation. Here, a facile and versatile one-way fabrication of lightweight, highly permeable, and biocompatible composite meshes with superior antiadhesion properties is proposed by modifying polypropylene meshes with well-defined polydopamine nanocoating...

REVIEW
Jeremy A Warren, Michael Love
A common surgical procedure, ventral hernia repair has long been a vexing problem, with no clear standard for repair and significant postoperative morbidity. Laparoscopic repair has the clear advantage of lower postoperative morbidity. However, application of laparoscopic ventral hernia repair is often limited by patient factors and hernia morphology. Long-term complications of intraperitoneal mesh and recurrence are concerning. Robotic-assisted surgery is the latest advance in minimally invasive hernia repair, combining the advantages of open repair with complete abdominal wall reconstruction and restoration of functional anatomy with the wound morbidity and decreased recovery time of laparoscopy...

REVIEW
Clayton C Petro, Ajita S Prabhu
This article reviews the literature that supports routine expectations for smoking cessation; weight loss; diabetic, nutritional, or metabolic optimization; and decolonization techniques before ventral hernia repair. These methods diminish postoperative complications. In an era of value-centric care, an upfront investment in patient optimization can improve the quality of the repair by reducing wound morbidity and hernia recurrence, naturally translating to a reduction in cost. The adoption of these practices and further study aimed at identifying other effective optimization techniques are encouraged...

REVIEW
Deepa V Cherla, Benjamin Poulose, Ajita S Prabhu
More research is needed with regards to gender, race, and socioeconomic status on ventral hernia presentation, management, and outcomes. The role of culture and geography in hernia-related health care remains unknown. Currently existing nationwide registries have thus far yielded at best a modest overview of disparities in hernia care. The significant variation in care relative to gender, race, and socioeconomic status suggests that there is room for improvement in providing consistent care for patients with hernias...

PURPOSE: Sarcopenia, or loss of muscle mass, is associated with increased morbidity and mortality in oncologic resections and several other major surgeries. Complex ventral hernia repairs (VHRs) and abdominal wall reconstruction are often performed in patients at high risk for morbidity and recurrence, though limited data exist on outcomes related to sarcopenia. We aimed to determine if sarcopenia is associated with worse outcomes in patients undergoing VHR. METHODS: We reviewed patients undergoing VHRs from 2014 to 2015...

PURPOSE: To investigate whether defect closure in laparoscopic ventral hernia repair reduces the re-operation rate for recurrence compared with no defect closure. METHODS: Data were extracted from the Danish Ventral Hernia Database. Adults with an elective laparoscopic ventral hernia repair with tacks used as mesh fixation were included, if their first repair was between the 1st of January 2007 and the 1st of January 2017. Patients with defect closure were compared with no defect closure...

BACKGROUND: The aim was to validate the potential use of a single, early procedure, operative task as a predictive metric for overall performance. The authors hypothesized that a shortcut psychomotor assessment would be as informative as a total procedural psychomotor assessment when evaluating laparoscopic ventral hernia repair performance on a simulator. METHODS: Using electromagnetic sensors, hand motion data were collected from 38 surgery residents during a simulated laparoscopic ventral hernia repair procedure...

PURPOSE: Transversus abdominis plane (TAP) blockade with long-acting anesthetic can be used during open ventral hernia repair (VHR) with posterior component separation (PCS). TAP block can be performed under ultrasound guidance (US-TAP) or under direct visualization (DV-TAP). We hypothesized that US-TAP and DV-TAP provide equivalent postoperative analgesia following open VHR. METHODS: A retrospective review of patients undergoing open VHR with PCS who received TAP blocks with 266 mg of liposomal bupivacaine was performed...

BACKGROUND: Continuing professional development (CPD) for the surgeon has been challenging because of a lack of standardized approaches of hands-on courses, resulting in poor post-course outcomes. To remedy this situation, SAGES has introduced the ADOPT program, implementing a standardized, long-term mentoring program as part of its hernia hands-on course. Previous work evaluating the pilot program showed increased adoption of learned procedures as well as increased confidence of the mentored surgeons...

Ventral and incisional hernias of the abdominal wall are common problems treated by surgeons around the globe. Incisional hernias are common postoperative complications of abdominal laparotomies with a reported incidence of up to 20 per cent. The increasing use of prosthetic mesh in open ventral hernia repairs necessitated the development of different operative techniques used in the repairs. It also required that surgeons become facile with placement of the mesh in different anatomical positions on the abdominal wall...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to identify risk factors for an adverse event, i.e. early surgical complication, need for ICU care and readmission, following ventral hernia repair. Our hypothesis was that there is an association between an increased complication rate following ventral hernia repair and specific factors, including hernia size, BMI > 35, concomitant bowel surgery, ASA-class, age, gender and method of hernia repair. METHODS: Data from a hernia database with prospectively entered data on 408 patients operated for ventral hernia between 2007 and 2014 at two Swedish university hospitals were analysed...

Management of congenital abdominal wall malformations is still a challenge in paediatric surgery due to visceroabdominal disproportion, large defects of abdominal wall and immature abdominal cavity. Most of the patients treated with primary closure need artificial substitutes like patches or biomaterials for non-permanent abdominal wall closure. Patches represent the source of constant infections and complications like separation of prosthesis from fascia. Removal of these patches and ventral hernia repair is essential afterwards...

Malakoplakia is a rare inflammatory disease, most commonly found in the urinary tract. It appears be related to a functional deficiency of macrophages, resulting in an inability to destroy digested bacteria and it is associated with various conditions that cause immunodeficiency. A rare case of malakoplakia of the colon in a healthy 68-year old male is presented. The patient underwent emergency surgery with colon resection and an end stoma with closure of the distal bowel (Hartmann's procedure), due to incarcerated ventral hernia and sigmoid-colon rupture...

The use of synthetic mesh in the abdominal compartment has recently become a topic of debate as high profile public cases have called into question their safety. Several case reports have demonstrated significant complications due to intra-abdominal mesh. Furthermore, some studies have suggested that the rates of these severe complications are underestimated. We present the case of a patient who developed an enteroenteric and enterocutaenous fistulae, an abdominal wall collection and an intraperitoneal inflammatory mass from intraluminal migration of a synthetic mesh inserted during laparoscopic incisional hernia repair...

Here we present a 32-y-old rhesus macaque (Macaca mulatta) with a large recurrent ventral incisional hernia. The initial surgery included midline celiotomy for treatment of endometriosis, in which the animal developed a hernia that was repaired with interposition of mesh. Hernia recurrence at 1 y resulted in a defect measuring 7 × 13 cm, with loss of abdominal domain. Skin breakdown was noted with areas of exposed mesh through the skin with associated acute on chronic infection. Clinically, the animal was lethargic, not eating, and failing to thrive...
