Pneumoperitoneum in ventral hernia repair

Raafat Y Afifi, Mokhtar Hamood, Maged Hassan
BACKGROUND: Complex ventral hernia is a challenging surgical entity, commonly attended with huge defect, loss of domain and possible soft tissue infection. It is difficult to repair, especially with multiple recurrences. Numerous methods of repair have been described with no evidence-based data available to prefer one method over the other. The purpose of this study is to determine the long-term outcome of the proposed new modification of intraperitoneal mesh repair procedure in complex ventral hernia...

INTRODUCTION: Operative management of complex ventral hernia still remains a significant challenge for surgeons. Closure of large defects in the unprepared abdomen has serious pathophysiological consequences due to chronic contraction and retraction of the lateral abdominal wall muscles. We report outcomes of 56 consecutive patients who had preoperative Botulinum toxin A (BTA) abdominal wall relaxation facilitating closure and repair. METHODS: This was a prospective observational study of 56 patients who underwent ultrasound-guided BTA into the lateral abdominal oblique muscles prior to elective ventral hernia repair between November 2012 and January 2017...

BACKGROUND: An increasing number of patients have large or complex abdominal wall defects. Component separation technique (CST) is a very effective method for reconstructing complex midline abdominal wall defects in a manner that restores innervated muscle function without excessive tension. Our goal is to show our results by a modified CST for treating large ventral hernias. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 351 patients with complex ventral hernias have been treated over a 10-year period...

Patients who undergo laparoscopic ventral hernia repair can have significant post-operative pain and discomfort from both somatic pain due to mesh fixation and visceral pain due to CO2 insufflation pressure. In an attempt to improve outcomes, a Clinical Quality Improvement (CQI) project was implemented by a multi-disciplinary hernia team. CQI tools were applied for consecutive patients who underwent laparoscopic ventral hernia repair from June 2012 through September 2015 (39 months). Initiatives for improved patient outcomes during this period included the administration of a transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block and/or an intra-operative block with long-acting local anesthetic first, and then a low pressure pneumoperitoneum (LPP) system was implemented later in the project...

BACKGROUND: A rarely used technique for enabling closure of large ventral hernias with loss of domain is preoperative progressive pneumoperitoneum (PPP), which uses intermittent insufflation to gradually stretch the contracted abdominal wall muscles, increasing the capacity of the abdominal cavity. This allows the re-introduction of herniated viscera into the abdominal cavity and assists in closure of giant hernias which may otherwise be considered inoperable. METHODS: This was a prospective study assessing 16 patients between 2013 and 2015 with multi-recurrent ventral hernia...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Reconstruction with reconstitution of the container function of the abdominal compartment is increasingly being performed in patients with massive ventral hernia previously deemed inoperable. This situation places patients at great risk of severe intra-abdominal hypertension and abdominal compartment syndrome if organ failure ensues. Intra-abdominal hypertension and especially abdominal compartment syndrome may be devastating systemic complications with systematic and progressive organ failure and death...

INTRODUCTION: The authors introduce a unique programme in the Czech Republic focused on extreme herniology. Patients with giant complex ventral hernias (monster hernias) have been concentrated in a high-volume hernia center with the most advanced perioperative intensive care since 2012. The authors present their single centre experience with the support of literature. RESULTS: Between 20122015 we operated on 36 patients with a giant complex hernia. Minimal inclusion criteria for enrolment in the very heterogeneous group included: a defect over 15 cm wide, loss of domain of 20% and higher, and the mean surface area of at least 225 cm²...

Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) in congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) repair has recently been gaining popularity and is the first choice in most departments. Loss of space in an undeveloped abdomen may cause serious problems such as difficult visceral reduction and need for conversion or postoperative complications such as abdominal compartment syndrome. A 4-month-old boy with delayed diagnosis of CDH underwent MIS repair via thoracoscopy, but the abdominal space was not large enough to accept the herniated viscera so a wide transverse fasciotomy was performed via laparoscopy and an iatrogenic ventral hernia induced...

Giant inguinal hernia is a formidable surgical problem. It is defined as inguinal hernia extending up to mid thigh or below in standing position. Giant inguinal hernia is usually associated with compromised quality of life due to sexual discomfort and constant weight bearing. It is a challenge for the operating surgeon since it is rare. It may require multistage repair with recurrence being common. A 45-year-old male patient presented with Giant inguinal hernia and compromised quality of life due to pain and sexual discomfort...

BACKGROUND: forced repair of a giant abdominal wall defect end with unsatisfactory results despite development of prosthetics materials. The enlargement of abdominal wall dimensions could be realized altogether other methods with the aid of pneumo-peritoneum. The aim of the study is to evaluate early results of the method used for patients with giant incisional hernias. MATERIAL AND METHODS: between june 1998 - june 2013, 17 patients (4 males) with giant abdominal wall defects (incisional and inguinal hernias) were prepaired for radical surgery with pneumoperitoneum...

BACKGROUND: Over the past 2 decades, laparoscopy has been established as a superior technique in many general surgery procedures. Few studies, however, have examined the impact of the use of a laparoscopic approach in patients with symptomatic congestive heart failure (CHF). Because pneumoperitoneum has known effects on cardiopulmonary physiology, patients with CHF may be at increased risk. This study examines current trends in approaches to patients with CHF and effects on perioperative outcomes...

The interpretation of images obtained in patients who have recently undergone abdominal or pelvic surgery is challenging, in part because procedures that were previously performed with open surgical techniques are increasingly being performed with minimally invasive (laparoscopic) techniques. Thus, it is important to be familiar with the normal approach used for laparoscopic surgeries. The authors describe the indications for various laparoscopic surgical procedures (eg, cholecystectomy, appendectomy, hernia repair) as well as normal postoperative findings...

BACKGROUND: Open and laparoscopic approaches to ventral hernia repair are generally exclusive of each other. However, select patients with difficult hernias may benefit from combined open/laparoscopic hybrid techniques to avoid dissection of large subcutaneous flaps. METHODS: Seven patients underwent combined laparoscopic and open approaches for ventral hernia repair. Records were reviewed for technical details, demographics, hernia and mesh characteristics, and postoperative outcomes...

INTRODUCTION: Patients with giant hernias with loss of domain require proper planning of surgical repair, because of the high associated comorbidity. The progressive preoperative pneumoperitoneum technique described by Goñi Moreno allows a more physiological adaptation of the patient and the abdominal cavity to the reinstatement of the viscera to the abdomen, enabling adequate surgical repair. The objective of this study was to analyze our experience in the treatment of this type of hernia...

BACKGROUND: During laparoscopic incisional hernia repair, conversion to open surgery is sometimes needed, especially in cases of large complicated incisional hernias. No guidelines exist for determining when conversions should be considered. This study aimed to investigate the safety of a combined technique as an alternative to conversion in the laparoscopic repair of large complicated incisional hernias and to evaluate the impact of early conversion to the combined technique on patient outcome...

Large incisional hernias are difficult to treat surgically because of the post-operative respiratory complications and abdominal compartment syndrome. Pre-operative progressive pneumoperitoneum is a technique which has been used in such cases. We describe a case of a large incisional hernia, where this technique was employed by objectively calculating abdominal and hernial sac volumes on the basis of computerized tomography scan of abdomen with a satisfactory outcome. A review of literature and issues involved in pre-operative progressive pneumoperitoneum have been discussed...
