Abdominal hernias are an increasingly common presentation due to obesity, ageing and prevalence of prior abdominal surgery. Mesh repair is the mainstay of treatment; however, mesh selection remains largely subjective. There are little data available to assess the performance of biosynthetic meshes against synthetic meshes across all wound types. This study assessed the 6-month outcomes of a single surgeon's cohort of ventral hernia repairs performed with either GORE BIO-A (BioA) or Parietex ProGrip (ProGrip).

Controversy remains over appropriate mesh selection during ventral hernia repair (VHR) in a contaminated field. Fear of mesh infection has led to increased use of biologic and absorbable synthetic mes...
Synthetic mesh and acellular dermal matrix reinforcement during complex abdominal wall reconstruction (CAWR) have significantly improved outcomes. In an attempt to further improve outcomes, we combine...
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...
To compare the efficiency of the partial mesh removal (PMR) versus subtotal mesh removal (SMR) on urogenital distress and sexual functions in patients who experienced vaginal mesh extrusion.
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...
Ventral hernias are common following abdominal surgery. Currently, there is no equipoise on when synthetic and biologic meshes should be used. Among open ventral hernia repairs, half are r...
The potential value of biological and biosynthetic meshes is their ability to integrate and remodel the wall in a contaminated environment in complex surgical situations. However, postoper...
Eventration corresponds to the dehiscence of the abdominal wall, with passage of peritoneum and / or intra-abdominal viscera, through an acquired orifice of the abdominal wall. It is secon...
The purpose of this study is to determine if mesh weight has an impact on postoperative pain, ventral hernia recurrence, incidence of deep wound infection, and overall quality of life foll...
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.
Comparison of various psychological, sociological, or cultural factors in order to assess the similarities or diversities occurring in two or more different cultures or societies.
A large group of nuclei lying between the internal medullary lamina and the internal capsule. It includes the ventral anterior, ventral lateral, and ventral posterior nuclei.
The region of the telencephalon located rostral and ventral to the STRIATUM comprising AMYGDALA; SEPTAL NUCLEI; SUBSTANTIA INNOMINATA and ventral pallidum.
Steroidal compounds related to TESTOSTERONE, the major mammalian male sex hormone. Testosterone congeners include important testosterone precursors in the biosynthetic pathways, metabolites, derivatives, and synthetic steroids with androgenic activities.

Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
