Umbilical hernia is a common finding in patients undergoing abdominoplasty, especially those who are post-partum with rectus divarication. Concurrent surgical treatment of the umbilical hernia at abdominoplasty presents a "vascular challenge" due to the disruption of dermal blood supply to the umbilicus, leaving the stalk as the sole axis of perfusion. To date, there have been no surgical techniques described to adequately address large umbilical herniae during abdominoplasty.

Laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair has become a valid option for repair of an inguinal hernia. Due to there are several types of mesh fixation for laparoscopic repair of inguinal hernia. The study ai...
Although new techniques and prostheses have been introduced in ventral hernia surgery, abdominal hernia repair still presents complications, such as recurrence, pain, and discomfort. Thus, this work i...
The umbilicus is an important aesthetic landmark of the abdomen. It possesses a dual blood supply that allows it to survive either on its stalk if the skin surrounding the umbilicus is incised, or thr...
More than 20 million patients worldwide undergo groin hernia repair annually. Every year more than 800,000 inguinal hernia repairs are performed in the United States alone. Since the first report by ...
The aim of this study is to compare immediate and long-term (24 months) results of laparoscopic and open mesh repair of incisional and umbilical hernia.
The laparoscopic repair of ventral hernias is still a controversial therapeutic option. To evaluate the efficacy and safety of laparoscopic repair we compare the results of the open and la...
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 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 ...
Inguinal hernia repair is one of the most commonly performed general surgery operations. However, to date, the ideal surgical approach for inguinal hernia surgery. The investigators theref...
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.
A syndrome of multiple defects characterized primarily by umbilical hernia (HERNIA, UMBILICAL); MACROGLOSSIA; and GIGANTISM; and secondarily by visceromegaly; HYPOGLYCEMIA; and ear abnormalities.
A hernia caused by weakness of the anterior ABDOMINAL WALL due to midline defects, previous incisions, or increased intra-abdominal pressure. Ventral hernias include UMBILICAL HERNIA, incisional, epigastric, and spigelian hernias.
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.
Surgical removal of excess abdominal skin and fat and tightening of the ABDOMINAL WALL. Abdominoplasty may include LIPECTOMY of INTRA-ABDOMINAL FAT, tightening of the ABDOMINAL MUSCLES, and re-creation of the UMBILICUS.
Vascular relates to blood vessels (Oxford Medical Dictionary) and can be used to describe the supply of blood, a disease affecting the blood vessels or molecules associated with these structures. For example, <!--LGfEGNT2Lhm-->atherosclerosis ...
