Stoma reversal might lead to stoma site incisional hernias. Recently, prophylactic mesh reinforcement of the stoma site has gained increased attention, supporting the need for accurate data on stoma site incisional hernia incidence and risk factors to identify high-risk patients. The aim of this study was to assess incidence, risk factors, and prevention of stoma site incisional hernias.

I read with great interest the systematic review and meta-analysis by Lambrichts et al, and congratulate them for a comprehensive study on stoma site incisional hernias. However, I wish to highlight ...
To evaluate the incidence and identify the risk factors of stoma-related complications in a consecutive series of patients treated at a single institution.
Parastomal hernia (PSH), defined as an incisional hernia at the abdominal wall defect resulting from stoma formation, is a frequent complication of enterostomy (ileostomy and jejunostomy), colostomy, ...
Incisional and parastomal hernias continue to be vexing problems for patients and surgeons. Risk factors are generally patient-related and/or technical in nature, and in some cases, can be altered, re...
The purpose of this study was to assess the incidence and risk factors for early postoperative hypotony after 25-gauge pars plana vitrectomy with nonexpansile endotamponade.
There are severel problems associated with the closing of a temporary loop-ileostomy after surgery for rectal cancer. The purpose of this study is to answer two questions: 1. The choice...
The risk factors for stoma reversal failure have been rarely studied, which is probably one of the worst scenarios for a case who has a sphincter preserving procedure for a rectal cancer a...
Parastomal hernias are randomised to either a conventional stoma formed through the rectus anterior muscle or to the same procedure with the addition of a prophylactic mesh in a sublay pos...
The purpose of this study is to learn if the stoma boot camp is a good and effective way to help people adapt to life with a stoma after surgery.
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 ...
The relating of causes to the effects they produce. Causes are termed necessary when they must always precede an effect and sufficient when they initiate or produce an effect. Any of several factors may be associated with the potential disease causation or outcome, including predisposing factors, enabling factors, precipitating factors, reinforcing factors, and risk factors.

A specialty which deals with the interrelationship of physical, psychological, social, behavioral, and ethical aspects of cancer. Psycho-oncology examines the behavioral and psychosocial factors that may influence the course of the disease, cancer risk, prevention, and detection.
A pyrrole and heptanoic acid derivative,HYDROXYMETHYLGLUTARYL-COA REDUCTASE INHIBITOR (statin), and ANTICHOLESTEREMIC AGENT that is used to reduce serum levels of LDL-CHOLESTEROL; APOLIPOPROTEIN B; AND TRIGLYCERIDES and to increase serum levels of HDL-CHOLESTEROL in the treatment of HYPERLIPIDEMIAS and prevention of CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES in patients with multiple risk factors.
Factors that can cause or prevent the outcome of interest, are not intermediate variables, and are not associated with the factor(s) under investigation. They give rise to situations in which the effects of two processes are not separated, or the contribution of causal factors cannot be separated, or the measure of the effect of exposure or risk is distorted because of its association with other factors influencing the outcome of the study.
