The purpose of the present study is to investigate whether or not the use of mesh is indicated in the repair of all size umbilical hernias as to reduce the rate of recurrence. This method is regularly used in umbilical hernia reconstruction although most surgeons repair small hernias using suture repair (fascia adaptation). Especially risk factors for hernia recurrence such as hernia size and BMI > 30 kg/m2 need to be evaluated and correlated to the method of hernia repair.

The research hypothesis for this study is to possibly reduce the incidence of incisional hernia 2 years postoperatively after midline laparotomy for treatment of aortic aneurysm from 25% t...
Aim of the study is to evaluate the risk reduction of intraperitoneal mesh-implementation after laparotomy (Group 1) in a randomized control trial compared with patients with standard abdo...
This study aim to assess long-term results of an incisional hernia-prophylactic mesh placement during stoma reversal after total mesorectal excision (TME) for rectal cancer
The aim of the present project is to investigate whether use of biological mesh at the donor site of the rotation flap in closure of the abdominal wall reduce the frequency of incisional h...
The purpose of the study is to test the use of "Deflux" injections in a minimally invasive closure of umbilical (belly button) hernias in infants between birth and five years. The study i...
The application of mesh-reinforced hiatal closure has resulted in a significant reduction in recurrence rates in comparison with primary suture repair. However, the use of meshes has not completely ex...
Giant omphalocele is a rare, large abdominal wall defect in which the intra-abdominal organs herniate through the umbilical cord and are covered by a sac. Surgical management of giant omphalocele is c...
Purpose A sutureless gastroschisis repair allows for spontaneous closure of abdominal wall defect. We report our experience focusing on final esthetic outcome. Methods Retrospective data were coll...
Failure of primary closure in classic bladder exstrophy (CBE) is a significant cause of morbidity, and yet its relative economic impact has not been well characterized. The authors aim to determine wh...
There are many closure techniques available to cutaneous surgeons. One of them is the purse-string suture which is used to provide complete or partial closure of round skin defects. In our animal stud...
A HERNIA due to an imperfect closure or weakness of the umbilical ring. It appears as a skin-covered protrusion at the UMBILICUS during crying, coughing, or straining. The hernia generally consists of OMENTUM or SMALL INTESTINE. The vast majority of umbilical hernias are congenital but can be acquired due to severe abdominal distention.
The surgical closure of the incompetent cervix uteri with suture material.
A syndrome of multiple defects characterized primarily by umbilical hernia (HERNIA, UMBILICAL); MACROGLOSSIA; and GIGANTISM; and secondarily by visceromegaly; HYPOGLYCEMIA; and ear abnormalities.
The tendency to perceive an incomplete pattern or object as complete or whole. This includes the Gestalt Law of Closure.
Therapeutic closure of spaces caused by the extraction of teeth, the congenital absence of teeth, or the excessive space between teeth.
Of all the types of Dementia, Alzheimer's disease is the most common, affecting around 465,000 people in the UK. Neurons in the brain die, becuase 'plaques' and 'tangles' (mis-folded proteins) form in the brain. People with Al...
