Laparoscopic ventral hernia repair is a commonly performed procedure with a variety of mesh options. A relatively new mesh option is a non-woven polypropylene mesh with a silicone barrier designed for...
The use of extraperitoneal mesh in place of intra-peritoneal mesh is gaining popularity in laparoscopic ventral hernia repair. We have adopted a robotic assisted laparoscopic technique using a lateral...
Laparoscopy of abdominal wall defects becomes more and more actual, considering the well-known advantages of minimally invasive surgery, and the reduced incidence of post-operative ventral infections ...
Self-fixating mesh has been introduced to further improve the quality results already seen with laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair. An observational study was undertaken to evaluate the technical lea...
Laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair has gained importance during last few decades, because of its several advantages. However, it has its own set of complications, which can be avoided by following th...
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 purpose of the study is 1. To compare the recurrence rate of the laparoscopic total extra peritoneal inguinal hernia repair without fixation of the mesh to mesh fixation under ...
1. General - antibiotic prophylaxis: cefazoline (Cefacidal™) 2 gram iv administered 30 minutes before surgery 2. Laparoscopic surgery - at least 5 cm o...
This purpose of this study is to compare the recovery after an operation of an incisional hernia within the limits of the rectus muscles of the abdominal wall. The use of a mesh in the rep...
The purpose of the study is to evaluate a new laparoscopic technique for parastomal hernia repair using an intraperitoneally placed Proceed mesh, looking at postoperative complications, re...
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.
Any woven or knit material of open texture used in surgery for the repair, reconstruction, or substitution of tissue. The mesh is usually a synthetic fabric made of various polymers. It is occasionally made of metal.
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 groin hernia occurring inferior to the inguinal ligament and medial to the FEMORAL VEIN and FEMORAL ARTERY. The femoral hernia sac has a small neck but may enlarge considerably when it enters the subcutaneous tissue of the thigh. It is caused by defects in the ABDOMINAL WALL.
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.
