Flexible tack for ventral hernia repair.
Summary of "Flexible tack for ventral hernia repair."
A mesh repair of a ventral hernia from the anterior approach is relatively difficult because it is necessary to fix the edge of the mesh from the hernial orifice. We developed a flexible tack for hernia repair, and used it for five lesions in four patients. The flexible tack allowed us to fix the edge of the mesh to the abdominal wall through the peritoneum without any complications. The durations of surgery were 123, 76, 124, and 89 min. We conclude that the flexible tack is useful device to perform hernia repair that provides an alternative to using mesh under the anterior approach.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A hernia caused by weakness of the anterior ABDOMINAL WALL due to midline defects, previous incisions, or increased intra-abdominal pressure. Ventral hernias include UMBILICAL HERNIA, incisional, epigastric, and spigelian hernias.
A protrusion of abdominal structures through the retaining ABDOMINAL WALL. It involves two parts: an opening in the abdominal wall, and a hernia sac consisting of PERITONEUM and abdominal contents. Abdominal hernias include groin hernia (HERNIA, FEMORAL; HERNIA, INGUINAL) and VENTRAL HERNIA.
Ventral Thalamic Nuclei
A large group of nuclei lying between the internal medullary lamina and the internal capsule. It includes the ventral anterior, ventral lateral, and ventral posterior nuclei.
A pelvic hernia through the obturator foramen, a large aperture in the hip bone normally covered by a membrane. Obturator hernia can lead to intestinal incarceration and INTESTINAL OBSTRUCTION.
A groin hernia occurring inferior to the inguinal ligament and medial to the FEMORAL VEIN and FEMORAL ARTERY. The femoral hernia sac has a small neck but may enlarge considerably when it enters the subcutaneous tissue of the thigh. It is caused by defects in the ABDOMINAL WALL.
INTRODUCTION: The laparoscopic approach is an increasingly popular option for ventral hernia repair. In the wake of this new technology, unexpected complications have been reported. CASE PRESENTATION:...
Ventral hernias, whether naturally occurring or the result of previous surgery, comprise one of the most common problems confronting general surgeons. As many as 25% of laparotomy incisions develop a...
BACKGROUND: A systemically altered connective tissue metabolism has been demonstrated in patients with abdominal wall hernias. The most pronounced connective tissue changes are found in patients with...
BACKGROUND: Although still under development, single-port access (SPA) approach may be of interest in patients prone to port-side incisional hernia, ensuring absence of increased fascial incision. Thi...
PURPOSE: Fibrin sealant for mesh fixation has significant positive effects on early outcome after laparoscopic ventral hernia repair (LVHR) compared with titanium tacks. Whether fibrin sealant fixatio...
The laparoscopic repair of ventral hernias is still a controversial therapeutic option. To evaluate the efficacy and safety of laparoscopic repair we compare the results of the open and la...
This is a multi-center, observational study of incisional/ventral hernia repair with NG-TSM laparoscopically. The study is not randomized and has a single treatment design assessing NG-TSM...
