PURPOSE: To evaluate abdominal ventral wound healing by using a specific biomaterial, a handmade polyamide surgical mesh. METHODS: A surgical incisional defect was made in ten rabbits to simulate a hernia in the ventral abdominal musculature. A polyamide surgical mesh was used in hernioplasty. They were monitored for surgical wound healing, and macroscopically and histologically evaluated at the end of the experiment. The polyamide surgical mesh did not cause foreign body reaction, pain, edema, or infection in the surgical site...

Background: Both synthetic and bioprosthetic meshes play important roles in surgical procedures such as ventral hernia repair. Although sometimes used interchangeably, these devices have inherently different properties. We therefore sought to better understand how these materials interact with the host environment to optimize surgical techniques and to improve outcomes. Methods: Synthetic mesh (polypropylene, Prolene) or bioprosthetic mesh (acellular fetal/neonatal bovine dermis, SurgiMend) was implanted intraperitoneally into rats lateral to a ventral incision in a novel intra-abdominal implant model...

A 75-year-old woman underwent laparoscopic abdominoperineal resection. Four months after abdominoperineal resection, the patient complained of a perineal bulge and urination disorder. Abdominal CT showed protrusion of the small intestine and bladder to the perineum. The patient underwent laparoscopic hernia repair with mesh. The size of the hernial orifice was 7.0 × 9.0 cm, and it had no solid rim. The mesh was tacked ventrally to the pectineal ligament and dorsally to the sacrum, and then sutured on the lateral side...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this meta-analysis was to examine postoperative pain and surgical outcomes (operative time, hospital stay, the incidence of seroma and recurrence) with different mesh fixation methods following laparoscopic ventral hernia repair (LVHR). METHODS: Randomized clinical trials compared different methods of mesh fixation in LVHR and reported on pain outcome measures analyzed. The results were expressed as odds ratio (OR) for combined dichotomous and mean difference (MD) for continuous data...

PURPOSE: Ventral hernias are a common surgical issue and a myriad of surgical mesh designs has been developed for their treatment. Many of these new mesh designs have not been extensively tested and their complications rates are largely unknown. The C-QUR V-Patch Mesh™ combines a unique knit construction polypropylene mesh with an omega-3 fatty acid coating. There has only previously been one reported study investigating this mesh. METHODS: A multicentre cohort study, with a single surgeon, of 168 consecutive patients with ventral hernias underwent repair using a standardized open pre-peritoneal approach with the novel C-QUR V-Patch Mesh™ between January 2013 and June 2015...

OBJECTIVE: To compare sublay and onlay techniques of ventral hernia repair in terms of postoperative drain removal time and wound infection. METHODS: This randomised controlled study was conducted from June to December 2016 at Jinnah Medical and Dental College Hospital, Karachi, and comprised hernia patients who were divided into two equal groups A and B. The former were subjected to onlay technique while the latter underwent sublay technique. Operative repair was performed at least 1 year after the index surgery, as this time was required for scar maturation...

PURPOSE: The seroma rate following laparoscopic incisional ventral hernia repair (LIVHR) is up to 78%. LIVHR is connected to a relatively rare but dangerous complication, enterotomy, especially in cases with complex adhesiolysis. Closure of the fascial defect and extirpation of the hernia sack may reduce the risk of seromas and other hernia-site events. Our aim was to evaluate whether hybrid operation has a lower rate of the early complications compared to the standard LIVHR. METHODS: This is a multicenter randomized-controlled clinical trial...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic ventral hernia repair is a common surgical procedure. However, muscle contractions and general muscle tension may impair the surgical view and cause difficulties suturing the hernial defect. Deep neuromuscular blockade (NMB) paralyses the abdominal wall muscles and may help to create better surgical conditions. OBJECTIVES: The current study investigated if deep compared with no NMB improved the surgical view during laparoscopic ventral hernia repair...

BACKGROUND: Primary ventral hernia (PVH) and incisional hernia (IH) repair using a mesh appears to reduce hernia recurrence. However, are the benefits of mesh offset in part by mesh-related complications? The aim of this study was to compare placement of a mesh versus simple suture for recurrence and postoperative complications in the repair of PVH or IH. METHODS: Five databases were searched for randomized controlled trials (RCTs). The study population was patients with a PVH or IH undergoing hernia repair...

BACKGROUND: Primary hernias in the triangle of Grynfeltt are very rare and therefore pose a difficulty in diagnosis and treatment. Due to the lack of systematic studies, the surgical approach must be chosen individually for each patient. Here, we describe an easy and safe surgical approach. CASE PRESENTATION: We report the case of a 53-year-old male patient with a history of mental disability and pronounced scoliosis, who presented with a Grynfeltt-Lesshaft hernia with protrusion of the ascending colon and the right ureter...

BACKGROUND: Patients undergoing ventral hernia repair (VHR) are at risk of an inadvertent enterotomy during surgery. Inadvertent enterotomies potentially contaminate the surgical field presenting a management dilemma for the surgeon. The aim of our study was to define the incidence and risk factors for a recognized inadvertent enterotomy and determine its impact on short-term outcomes after ventral hernia repair. METHODS: Using a nationwide hernia registry, the Americas Hernia Society Quality Collaborative, we reviewed all ventral hernia repair performed between 2013 and 2017...

In male patients with asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic ventral and inguinal hernias, a watchful waiting strategy should be considered. Even though one third to two thirds of these patients will eventually undergo hernia repair, they may still benefit from a watchful waiting strategy, as hernia repair is associated with a range of complications, e.g. wound infection, haematoma, seroma, fistulas and chronic pain. Delay of hernia repair in these patients is not associated with any significant increase in morbidity or mortality, and the risk of incarceration is very low...

BACKGROUND: Elective abdominal surgeries in patients with cirrhosis have been discouraged due to the high risk of complications. This study investigates the outcomes and safety of surgeries for hernias, and laparoscopic cholecystectomies in cirrhotic patients. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study that compared 91 cirrhotic patients to a control group of non-cirrhotic patients operated by liver transplant surgeons was conducted between 2009 and 2015. RESULTS: No statistical significance found in re-admission rates or complication rates (p = 0...

PURPOSE: The method of anchoring the mesh in laparoscopic ventral hernia repair is claimed to cause postoperative pain, affecting the quality of life of the patients. The aim of this randomized study was to compare the effect of three types of fixation devices on postoperative pain, patient quality of life, and hernia recurrence. METHODS: Patients with ventral hernias between 2 and 7 cm were randomized into one of three mesh fixation groups: permanent tacks (Protack™), absorbable tacks (Securestrap™), and absorbable synthetic glue (Glubran™)...

BACKGROUND: Consensus lacks concerning management of ventral hernia in women who are, or might become pregnant. The aim of this systematic review was to examine the risk of recurrence following pre-pregnancy ventral hernia repair, and secondly the prevalence of ventral hernia during pregnancy and the risk of surgical repair pre- and post-partum. DATA SOURCES: PubMed, Embase, CINAHL, Cochrane Library and Web of Science were systematically searched for randomized controlled trials, case-control, cohort studies and larger case-series on ventral (umbilical, epigastric or incisional) hernia repair in relation to pregnancy...

Introduction: There has been a surge of innovative procedures in the field of abdominal wall hernias. Works of pioneers such as Dr. Yuri Novitsky, Dr. Jorge Daes and Dr. Igor Belyansky have started a new era in the field of hernia surgery. Conventional and popular surgeries for ventral hernias are open onlay mesh hernioplasty, open retromuscular mesh hernioplasty (Rives-Stoppa procedure) and laparoscopic intraperitoneal mesh hernioplasty. Evidence seems to suggest that retromuscular mesh hernioplasty has advantages over other procedures regarding recurrence and surgical site occurrences...

Seroma is a common postoperative finding after ventral hernia repair with an incidence of 20%. Often, it can be managed conservatively, but in the case of persistent or chronic seroma, reinterventions may be required. Closed drain suction has been the mainstay of seroma management for the last 40 years. Other alternative technologies have been evaluated to improve outcomes with mixed results. Because seroma is common, it is often an accepted outcome. Patient morbidity and costs to the healthcare system are underestimated, which begs for a re-evaluation of the current state of seroma management that is nearly a half-century old...

BACKGROUND: The optimal method of fascial closure, interrupted versus continuous (IFC and CFC respectively) has never been studied exclusively in the setting of emergency surgery. We hypothesized that IFC decreases postoperative incisional hernia development following emergent laparotomies. METHODS: Between August 2008 and September 2015, patients undergoing emergent laparotomies were consented and randomly assigned to either IFC or CFC. Patients were followed postoperatively for at least three months and assessed for incisional hernia, dehiscence, or wound infection...
