OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study is to measure abdominal wall myopathic histologic and mechanical changes during incisional herniation and its effect on incisional hernia repairs. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: Unloaded skeletal muscles undergo characteristic atrophic changes, including change in fiber type composition, decreased cross-sectional area, and pathologic fibrosis. We hypothesize that these atrophic changes decrease muscle elastic properties and may contribute to the high laparotomy wound failure rate observed following incisional hernia repair...

PURPOSE: Ventral hernia repair (VHR) lacks standardization of care and exhibits variation in delivery. Complications of VHR, notably recurrence and infection, increase costs. Efforts at obtaining federal funding for VHR research are frequently unsuccessful, in part due to misperceptions that VHR is not a clinical challenge and has minimal impact on healthcare resources. We analyzed national trends for VHR performance and associated costs to demonstrate potential savings resulting from an improvement in outcomes...

BACKGROUND: In the clinical literature on abdominal hernia repair, no sound criteria have been established to support the use of biological meshes as opposed to synthetic ones. Furthermore, the information on biological meshes is quite scarce, and so their place in therapy has not yet been defined. METHODS: The treatment of primary and incisional ventral hernia was the target intervention evaluated in our analysis. Our study consisted of the following phases: a) Identification of the biologic meshes available on the market; b) Literature search focused on efficacy and safety of these meshes; c) Analysis of the findings derived from the literature search...

BACKGROUND: Posterior component separation with transversus abdominis release technique is increasingly being used for abdominal wall reconstruction in complex abdominal wall repair. The main purpose of this study is to present a modification of the surgical technique originally described that facilitates the surgical procedure and offers additional advantages. METHODS: Based on the knowledge of the anatomy of the retromuscular space and the preperitoneal aerolar tissue distribution, we start the incision on the posterior rectus sheath from the arcuate line in a down to up direction...

Diastasis recti abdominis is a condition in which both rectus abdominis muscles disintegrate to the sides, this being ac-companied by the extension of the linea alba tissue and bulging of the abdominal wall. DRA may result in the herniation of the abdominal viscera, but it is not a hernia per se. DRA is common in the female population during pregnancy and in the postpartum period. There is a scant knowledge on the prevalence, risk factors, prevention or management of the abovemen-tioned condition. The aim of this paper is to present the methods of DRA treatment based on the results of recent studies...

PURPOSE: This study aims to compare the outcomes of posterior component separation and transversus abdominis release (PCSTAR) with the open anterior component separation (OACS) technique. OACS, first described by Ramirez et al. (Plast Reconstr Surg 86(3):519-526, 1990), has become an established technique for local myofascial advancement in abdominal hernia surgery. PCSTAR, described by Novitsky et al. (Am J Surg 204(5):709-716, 2012), is being used more frequently and is rapidly becoming the technique of choice in complex ventral hernia repair...

INTRODUCTION: Abdominal wound closure is a challenge in patients undergoing colorectal surgery with a complex history of multiple abdominopelvic operations. Loss of domain of the abdominal fascia because of prior laparotomies precludes the use of simple, everyday abdominal wound closure techniques. Furthermore, ongoing intra-abdominal sepsis, with or without a concurrent entero- or colocutaneous fistula, increases the risk of postoperative morbidity and mortality in this patient population...

PURPOSE: The incidence of incisional hernia (IH) at ileostomy closure site has not been sufficiently evaluated. Temporary loop ileostomy is routinely used in patients after low anterior resection for rectal cancer. The goal of this study was to compare the IH rates of standard suture skin closure and purse-string skin closure techniques. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Patients undergoing ileostomy reversal and follow-up CT scan at the University Hospital Frankfurt between January 2009 and December 2015 were retrospectively analyzed regarding IH and associated risk factors...

The authors present a study of 775 patients who underwent a Shouldice herniorrhaphy between 1987 and 2000, as performed by one surgeon. Average patient age was 52 years, and 93% of patients were male. Local anesthesia with sedation was used in 643 cases (83%) and regional anesthesia in 13%. The length of the incision was 9.5 cm. The average duration of surgery was 57.5 min (40-75). Tolerance to local anesthesia with sedation was 93%, a similar percentage to that of general anesthesia. The most significant postoperative complications were: urinary retention 8%, headache 7%, and ecchymosis 6%...

BACKGROUND: Inguinal hernia repair is the most frequent operation in general surgery. There are several techniques: the Shouldice technique is sometimes considered the best method but different techniques are used as the "gold standard" for open hernia repair. Outcome measures, such as recurrence rates, complications and length of post operative stay, vary considerably among the various techniques. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the efficacy and safety of the Shouldice technique compared to other non-laparoscopic techniques for hernia repair...

BACKGROUND: Both mesh and suture repair are used for the treatment of umbilical hernias, but for smaller umbilical hernias (diameter 1-4 cm) there is little evidence whether mesh repair would be beneficial. In this study we aimed to investigate whether use of a mesh was better in reducing recurrence compared with suture repair for smaller umbilical hernias. METHODS: We did a randomised, double-blind, controlled multicentre trial in 12 hospitals (nine in the Netherlands, two in Germany, and one in Italy)...

A 74-year-old male patient with prostate cancer under remission was admitted with left inguinoscrotal swelling. He underwent scrotal ultrasound demonstrating a giant in-guinoscrotal hernia. Contrast-enhanced computerized tomography of the abdomen and pelvis demonstrated a left pelvic kidney associated with severe hydroureteronephrosis secondary to a ureteral inguinoscrotal hernia. Upon exploration with left inguinal incision, a paraperitoneal ureteral in-guinoscrotal hernia and a hypertrophic left spermatic cord were observed...

BACKGROUND: In low-resource countries, a suture repair is still in common use due to the limited access to commercial mesh implants. The search for less expensive alternatives to the synthetic meshes has led to using mosquito nets. Sterilized mosquito net appears to be a low-cost and commonly available product that closely resembles commercially available meshes. However, the extent to which sterilization alters the structure of mosquito nets is still unknown. The aim of this research was to assess the effects of different sterilization types on physico-mechanical properties of mosquito nets...

PURPOSE: Surgical site infection (SSI) is one of the most frequent complications after stoma closure and the optimal skin closure technique is still not clear. The goal of this review was to compare outcomes with purse-string closure technique (PSC) versus conventional closure technique (CCT) for skin closure after stoma reversal. METHODS: We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis of available randomized controlled trials (RCTs) to compare SSI rate within 30 days, operative time, hospital stay, incisional hernia and intestinal obstruction rates between PSC and CCT...

BACKGROUND: Incisional hernia is a common problem following open abdominal surgery. Hernia repair in patients with relevant medical conditions is a topic of controversy due to the high risk of morbidity and recurrence. We investigated the risk of recurrence in patients with relevant medical conditions managed with a prosthesis in the retromuscular position. METHODS: A retrospective review of the data of patients undergoing midline incisional hernia repair was performed...
