"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.

Secondary ventral hernia or incisional hernia occurs in at least 20 % of cases after laparotomy and most patients are symptomatic. The pathogenesis of incisional hernia is believed to be based on a...

Lichtenstein hernia repair is a common surgical procedure and one of the first procedures performed by a surgical trainee. However, formal assessment tools developed for this procedure are few and spa...
Inguinal hernia remains the most commonly encountered surgical problem. Various methods of repair have been described, and the most suitable one debated. Single port access (SPA) surgery is a rapidly...
This study provides epidemiologic data on the incidence of inguinal hernia repair in preschool children using the Taiwan National Health Insurance Research Database. We believe that the data on hernia...
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...

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...
The intraperitoneal repair has been proven safe for the repair of incisional hernia and is accepted, together with the subfascial or retromuscular repair as the "gold-standard" for the rep...
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.
