Summary of "Implementation of the small bites closure of abdominal midline incisions in clinical practice is correlated with a reduction in surgical site infections."

Small steps wound closure of midline laparotomy has been reported to decrease the incidence of incisional hernia development in two randomized controlled trials. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect of implementing the small steps wound closure technique in clinical practice with regards to the development of incisional ventral hernia (IVH) and surgical site infections (SSI) in clinical practice.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Methods to repair breaks in abdominal tissues caused by trauma or to close surgical incisions during abdominal surgery.

A birth defect in which the URINARY BLADDER is malformed and exposed, inside out, and protruded through the ABDOMINAL WALL. It is caused by closure defects involving the top front surface of the bladder, as well as the lower abdominal wall; SKIN; MUSCLES; and the pubic bone.

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 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.

The effects, both local and systemic, caused by the bites of SPIDERS.
