Stoma prolapse represents one of the most common late complications, occurring in 1-16%. Final rate depends on systematic follow up of the patient and the primary technique. A 49-year-old male patient presented in the Emergency Department, complaining about stoma prolapse, pain and stoma care difficulties. On admission, his colostomy protruded ~20 cm from the skin. The symptoms were local pain and psychological stress. The prolapse was repaired successfully with a simple revision procedure under local anesthesia, by resecting the prolapsed part of the bowel and reconstruction of stoma...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to compare length of stay (LOS) after robotic-assisted and open retromuscular ventral hernia repair (RVHR). BACKGROUND: RVHR has traditionally been performed by open techniques. Robotic-assisted surgery enables surgeons to perform minimally invasive RVHR, but with unknown benefit. Using real-world evidence, this study compared LOS after open (o-RVHR) and robotic-assisted (r-RVHR) approach. METHODS: Multi-institutional data from patients undergoing elective RVHR in the Americas Hernia Society Quality Collaborative between 2013 and 2016 were analyzed...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic ventral hernia repair (LVHR) is associated with decreased wound morbidity compared to open repair. It remains unclear whether primary fascial closure (PFC) offers any benefit in reducing postoperative seroma compared to bridged repair. We hypothesized that PFC would have no effect on seroma formation following LVHR. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study was performed using data from the prospectively maintained Americas Hernia Society Quality Collaborative...

BACKGROUND: Anecdotally, obese patients experience increased morbidity with emergent ventral hernia repair (VHR). We hypothesized obese patients are over-represented in emergent VHRs and experience increased 30-day morbidity. METHODS: American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database (2011 to 2013) was queried for patients undergoing open VHR. Patients were stratified by body mass index (BMI) categories: underweight, normal weight, overweight, and obesity classes I, II, and III; 30-day postoperative complications (surgical site infections, return to operating room, dehiscence, death) were evaluated across BMI for elective vs emergent VHR...

PURPOSE: Since the introduction of the first prosthetic mesh for abdominal hernia repair, there has been a search for the "ideal mesh." The use of preclinical or animal models for assessment of necessary characteristics of new and existing meshes is an indispensable part of hernia research. Unfortunately, in our experience there is a lack of consensus among different research groups on which model to use. Therefore, we hypothesized that there is a lack of comparability within published animal research on hernia surgery due to wide range in experimental setup among different research groups...

PURPOSE: The purpose of study was to develop bioengineered scaffolds by seeding primary mouse embryo fibroblast cells (p-MEF) on polypropylene mesh and to test its efficacy for the repair of abdominal wall defects in rats. METHODS: The study was conducted on 18 clinically healthy adult Wistar rats of either sex. The animals were randomly divided into two equal groups having nine animals in each group. In both the groups a 20mm×20mm size full thickness muscle defect was created under xylazine and ketamine anesthesia in the mid-ventral abdominal wall...

BACKGROUND: Abdominal wall hernias are a common problem. Composite meshes placed intraperitoneally for abdominal wall hernia repair are widely used. This registry evaluated the safety and efficacy of one specific composite mesh with polypropylene and expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (Intramesh(®) T1) in laparoscopic ventral hernia repair. METHODS: A prospective multicentre registry with data from seven centres was collected between January 2013 and September 2014...

Traumatic abdominal wall hernias (TAWHs) can be defined as a herniation through disrupted musculature and fascia associated with blunt trauma. They are seen in approximately 1% of patients with blunt abdominal trauma. Data on TAWH in the pediatric population are very limited and principally based on case reports and a few case series. Past reports have indicated that the presence of the "handlebar sign" confers an increased risk of internal injury. Concomitant internal injuries are reported with an incidence between 25% and 70%, and occult hernias may also occur and are usually detected only by abdominal computed tomography scan and ultrasonography...

Abdominal wall reconstruction is a rapidly evolving area of surgical interest. Due to the increase in prevalence and size of ventral hernias and the high recurrence rates, the academic community has become motivated to find the best reconstruction techniques. Whilst interrogating the abdominal wall reconstruction literature, we discovered an inconsistency in hernia nomenclature that must be addressed. The terms used to describe the anatomical planes of mesh implantation 'inlay', 'sublay' and 'underlay' are misinterpreted throughout...

An open posterior component separation (PCS) is a commonly utilized surgical approach for repair of complex abdominal wall defects and hernias. Although this approach may improve surgical outcomes, significant postoperative pain can be expected given the required laparotomy and extensive abdominal wall manipulation. Both systemic opioids and thoracic epidural analgesia (TEA) are viable postoperative analgesic options, and both are commonly utilized. Although the benefits of TEA have been investigated following a variety of surgeries, there is a paucity of literature related to its efficacy for this particular surgery...

OBJECTIVE: We report a prospective study of repairs using the Rives technique of the more difficult primary inguinal hernias, focusing on the immediate post-operative period, clinical recurrence, testicular atrophy, and chronic pain. A mesh placed in the preperitoneal space can reduce recurrences and chronic pain. METHODS: For the larger primary inguinal hernias (Types 3, 4, 6, and some 7), we favour preperitoneal placement of a mesh, covering the myopectineal orifice by means of a transinguinal (Rives technique) approach...

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...

BACKGROUND: Female patients of reproductive age constitute a substantial portion of patients undergoing ventral hernia repair, however the impact of pregnancy on the risk of recurrence is scarcely documented. The aim of the study was to evaluate if pregnancy following ventral hernia repair was associated with an increased risk of recurrence. METHODS: This nationwide cohort study included all female patients of reproductive age registered in the Danish Ventral Hernia Database with ventral hernia repair between 2007 and 2013...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to evaluate biosynthetic absorbable mesh in single-staged contaminated (Centers for Disease Control class II and III) ventral hernia (CVH) repair over 24 months. BACKGROUND: CVH has an increased risk of postoperative infection. CVH repair with synthetic or biologic meshes has reported chronic biomaterial infections and high hernia recurrence rates. METHODS: Patients with a contaminated or clean-contaminated operative field and a hernia defect at least 9 cm had a biosynthetic mesh (open, sublay, retrorectus, or intraperitoneal) repair with fascial closure (n = 104)...

BACKGROUND: Mesh placement during repair of acutely incarcerated ventral and groin hernias is associated with high rates of surgical site infection (SSI). The utility of preoperative CT in this setting is unclear. We hypothesized that CT evidence of bowel wall compromise would predict SSI while accounting for physiologic parameters. METHODS: We performed a four-year retrospective cohort analysis of 50 consecutive patients who underwent mesh repair of acutely incarcerated ventral or groin hernias...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to investigate the reoperation rates after open indirect inguinal hernia repair with and without mesh in young males and other age groups. Younger males have higher risk of developing chronic pain after open inguinal hernia repair with mesh compared with older patients. Avoiding mesh among younger patients could be justified, if they have an acceptable low risk of recurrence compared with other groups and compared with Lichtenstein repair. METHODS: Data were extracted from the nationwide Danish Hernia Database which is recording prospectively...

BACKGROUND: Previous studies suggest that bridged mesh repair for abdominal wall reconstruction may result in worse outcomes than mesh-reinforced, primary fascial closure, particularly when acellular dermal matrix is used. We compared our outcomes of bridged versus reinforced repair using ADM in abdominal wall reconstruction procedures. METHODS: This retrospective study included 535 consecutive patients at our cancer center who underwent abdominal wall reconstruction either for an incisional hernia or for abdominal wall defects left after excision of malignancies involving the abdominal wall with underlay mesh...

Traumatic abdominal wall hernias due to blunt abdominal trauma in pediatric patients can pose a diagnostic challenge because of spontaneous hernia reduction. Ultrasonography may be superior to computed tomography for this indication in some cases because of the ability to dynamically and repeatedly assess the area of injury. Herniation can be induced or exaggerated via Valsalva maneuvers, which can facilitate its detection during dynamic assessment. We present the case of a 3-year-old boy who sustained blunt abdominal trauma, with a resultant abdominal wall hernia that was diagnosed using point-of-care ultrasound imaging...
