Hernia repair for large and complex hernias presents challenges related to the availability of larger mesh sizes. When sizes beyond those manufactured are required, multiple meshes (MM) may be sutured to create a larger graft. With the availability of large polypropylene mesh up to 50 × 50 cm (LM), abdominal wall reconstruction (AWR) may be accomplished with a single mesh. This study evaluates clinical and economic outcomes following AWR with component separation utilizing MM and LM.

Anterior chest wall resection for oncological purposes is usually combined with a form of reconstruction. Most surgeons are convinced that ventrally located defects more than 4 to 5 cm require ad...
Abdominal wall reconstruction in patients presenting with enteric fistulas and mesh infection is challenging. There is a consensus that synthetic mesh must be avoided in infected operations, and the a...
Our aim was to report the results of open in-lay placement of a composite mesh for repair of small abdominal wall hernias compared to a control group of on-lay polypropylene mesh placement.
Perioperative outcomes in patients who undergo complex abdominal wall reconstruction (CAWR) may be associated with severe complications, mainly when these procedures are done urgently or emergently. T...
Although recommendations help guide surgeons' mesh choice in abdominal wall reconstruction (AWR), financial and institutional pressures may play a bigger role. Standardization of an AWR algorithm may ...
Hypothesis: TIGR mesh as a reconstruction material is a more effective mesh for the repair of the abdominal wall post Lipectomy, transverse rectus abdominus myocutaneous (TRAM) / deep infe...
Background: Abdominal wall reconstruction in patients presenting with enteric fistulas and mesh infection is challenging. There is a consensus that synthetic mesh must be avoided in infect...
The purpose of this study is to: 1. compare the long term results of mesh versus suture repair in treatment of abdominal wall defects; 2. find the optimal location of impl...
The purpose of this study is to determine the influence of anterior pelvic prolapse reconstruction with a titanized polypropylene mesh on patients quality of life.
To evaluate the safety and efficacy of the Lichtenstein's hernioplasty using Infinit® PTFE Mesh, and to compare it with the traditional Lichtenstein procedure performed with polypropylene...
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.
Either of two large arteries originating from the abdominal aorta; they supply blood to the pelvis, abdominal wall and legs.
The outer margins of the ABDOMEN, extending from the osteocartilaginous thoracic cage to the PELVIS. Though its major part is muscular, the abdominal wall consists of at least seven layers: the SKIN, subcutaneous fat, deep FASCIA; ABDOMINAL MUSCLES, transversalis fascia, extraperitoneal fat, and the parietal PERITONEUM.
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.
