"Component separation" technique and panniculectomy for repair of incisional hernia.

Summary of ""Component separation" technique and panniculectomy for repair of incisional hernia."

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.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
