BACKGROUND: Symptoms arising from giant ventral hernia have been considered to be related to weakening of the abdominal muscles. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between the area of the abdominal wall defect and abdominal wall muscle strength measured by the validated BioDex system together with a back/abdominal unit. METHODS: Fifty-two patients with giant ventral hernia (>10 cm wide) underwent CT scan, clinical measurement of hernia size and BioDex measurement of muscle strength prior to surgery...

BACKGROUND: The failure of sutures to maintain tissue in apposition is well characterized in hernia repairs. A mesh suture designed to facilitate tissue integration into and around the filaments may improve tissue hold and decrease suture pull-through. METHODS: In vitro, the sutures were compared for resistance to pull-through in ballistics gel. In vivo, closure of midline laparotomy incisions was done with both sutures in 11 female pigs. Tissue segments were subsequently subjected to mechanical and histological testing...

OBJECTIVE: Patients suffering from an incisional hernia after abdominal surgery have an impaired quality of life (QoL). Surgery aims to improve QoL with a minimum risk of further complications. The aim was to analyze QoL, predictors for outcome, including recurrence and reoperation rates during the first postoperative year. METHODS: In a randomized controlled trial comparing laparoscopic and open mesh repair, 133 patients were assessed preoperatively and after 1 year with regard to QoL using the Short Form-36 (SF-36), visual analog scale (pain, movement limitation, and fatigue), and questions addressing abdominal wall complaints...

Fournier's gangrene is the necrotizing fasciitis of perianal, genitourinary, and perineal regions. Herein, we present a case of scrotal Fournier's gangrene as a postoperative complication of inguinal hernia repair. A 51-year-old male with giant indirect hernia is presented. Patient underwent inguinal hernia repair, and after an unproblematic recovery period, he was discharged. He applied to our outpatient clinic on the fifth day with swollen and painful scrotum and it turned out to be Fournier's gangrene. Polypropylene mesh was not infected...

Resection of abdominal wall tumors often leaves patients with debilitating soft tissue defects. Modern reconstructive techniques can be used to restore abdominal wall integrity. In this article, we present an overview of preoperative patient evaluation, analysis of the defect, surgical planning, and the spectrum of available surgical techniques, ranging from simple to complex. The established clinical evidence in the field of abdominal wall reconstruction is summarized and a case example is provided.

PURPOSES: Although surgery is commonly used to treat parastomal hernia, it is very difficult and has shown poor results. Recently, repair with prosthetic materials has been thought to be a more promising method. METHODS: The Sugarbaker technique with e-PTFE mesh (Dualmesh(®)) performed via open surgery was adopted for seven patients with parastomal hernia. Two of them were recurrent cases. Three of the patients experienced incarceration of the intestine and recovered conservatively before surgery...

BACKGROUND: Numerous mesh materials are available for laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair. The role of fixation of mesh in laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair remains controversial. Mesh materials have been engineered to anatomically conform to the pelvis to potentially reduce or eliminate the need for fixation. This study evaluates the outcomes of laparoscopic inguinal hernia utilizing a device consisting of a lightweight polypropylene mesh with a nitinol frame (Rebound HRD) compared with repair with lightweight polypropylene mesh with permanent tack fixation...

Hernia repair remains one of the most common surgical procedures performed around the world. Over the past several decades, in response to various mesh-related complications and coinciding with the influx of laparoscopy into the field of general surgery, numerous advancements have been made in regards to the technology of mesh products being used in hernia repair today. Along these same lines, devices used for mesh fixation have evolved at a similar pace. The goal of this chapter is to review the various materials and methods of mesh fixation being utilized in both ventral and inguinal hernia repair today...

Present available fixation devices in laparoscopic hernia repair include transfascial sutures, (permanent or absorbable) tacks, and fibrin or synthetic sealants, all of which have advantages and disadvantages. Tack fixation has been applied since the introduction of laparoscopic inguinal and ventral hernia repair during the end of the 1980s and the beginning of the 1990s, respectively. However, although this type of penetrating fixation offers a reliable method to keep the mesh in place, several negative aspects have been highlighted in recent years...

BACKGROUND: Pathological examination of hernia sac specimens adds additional steps and cost to a surgical procedure but has no proven benefit. Although well studied in pediatrics, there are limited data in the adult literature pertaining to this practice. METHODS: This is a retrospective analysis from a single institution referral center over a 4-year period (2007 to 2011). All inguinal, incisional, ventral, and umbilical hernia repairs greater than 18 years of age were included...
