Primary incisional hernia repair is rarely successful, with recurrence rates ranging from 18% to 62%. We describe the integration of "components separation" herniorrhaphy with panniculectomy.
Twenty-two patients were treated. Standard panniculectomies and component separation were performed. Intravesical pressure was measured preoperatively, intraoperatively, and postoperatively. Measurement variations were compared using the Wilcoxon test. Complications or hernia recurrence were evaluated. The clinical appearance of the abdomen was subjectively evaluated by patients.
Secure abdominal defect closure with midline approximation of the fascia was achieved in all patients. No major early complications occurred. Hernia recurred in 1 patient (4.5%). Intra-abdominal pressure increased in all the patients in our series but remained well below the danger level. Fifteen patients were fully satisfied with the appearance of their abdomen, whereas 7 were satisfied.
Abdominal component separation provides a reliable autologous reconstructive option. Hernia repair combined with abdominoplasty provides functional and esthetic benefits.

Inguinal hernia is a recognized complication of radical prostatectomy. Previous hernia repair, wound infection, midline incision, low body mass index, and preexisting or subclinical hernia contribute ...
De Garengeot hernia is a rare type of femoral hernia, defined as a sac containing a vermiform appendix. Due to its rare occurrence the information available on diagnosis and management is scarce. We r...
To minimize the invasiveness of laparoscopic transabdominal preperitoneal hernia repair (TAPP) for the treatment of adult inguinal hernia, we developed a new operative technique with the use of only o...
The aim of this study was to assess the extent of reoperations after hernia repair in Denmark that are being performed at a different facility than the primary repair and thereby investigate whether o...
To compare the complete repair of the abdominal wall at the level of the former incision with only a partial repair at the level of the hernia in patients with an incisional hernia after m...
The effectiveness of laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair still remains unclear. During a one year period a total of 1208 inguinal hernias in 952 patients were consecutively operated using ...
The purpose of the study is to evaluate a new laparoscopic technique for parastomal hernia repair using an intraperitoneally placed Proceed mesh, looking at postoperative complications, re...
This is a new inguinal hernia repair technique.
The objective of the study is reduction of the incidence of the most frequent complication of abdominal surgery, incisional hernia. In this multi center double-blinded prospective randomi...
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.
A cell-separation technique where magnetizable microspheres or beads are first coated with monoclonal antibody, allowed to search and bind to target cells, and are then selectively removed when passed through a magnetic field. Among other applications, the technique is commonly used to remove tumor cells from the marrow (BONE MARROW PURGING) of patients who are to undergo autologous bone marrow transplantation.
A hybrid separation technique combining both chromatographic and electrophoretic separation principles. While the method was invented to separate neutral species, it can also be applied to charged molecules such as small peptides.
A technique which uses synthetic oligonucleotides to direct the cell's inherent DNA repair system to correct a mutation at a specific site in an episome or chromosome.
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.
