Mesh Versus Suture Repair for Umbilical Hernias

2014-08-27 03:26:20 | BioPortfolio


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.

Laparoscopic extra-abdominal suturing technique for the repair of Larrey's diaphragmatic hernia using the port closure needle (Endo Close(®)): A case report.

Morgagni's or Larrey's diaphragmatic hernias are relatively uncommon. If the defect is too large for primary closure, the use of a mesh is inevitable. Although primary closure is adaptable for relativ...

Long-term results and complications related to Crurasoft(®) mesh repair for paraesophageal hiatal hernias.

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...

Cosmetic Outcomes of Sutureless Closure in Gastroschisis.

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...

Repair of Morgagni Hernia in Adults with Primary Closure and Mesh Placement: First Robotic Experience.

Morgagni hernia (MH) is an uncommon type of diaphragmatic hernia, especially in adults. Laparoscopic or thorascopic approaches have been described in adults. There are few reported cases using the Da ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
