Primary non-complicated midline ventral hernia: overview of approaches and controversies.

Umbilical hernias and epigastric hernias are some of the most common hernias in the world. Umbilical and epigastric hernia defects can range from small (

Primary Umbilical Hernia Repair: A Large-Volume Single-Surgeon Study.

There are conflicting views regarding techniques for repair of small umbilical hernias (UHs). Here, we compare the recurrence rate in primary repair with that reported for mesh repair by examining a s...

Do Equivalence Trials Display Superiority Over the Traditional Comparative Study Methods in Orthopedic Surgery?

Superiority and equivalence trials are 2 commonly encountered methods of designing randomized controlled trials. Traditionally, the goal of a randomized controlled trial is to show superiority. Howeve...

Mesh Versus Suture Repair for Umbilical Hernias

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 ...

Mesh Versus Suture Repair in Umbilical Hernias - A Multicenter Trial

Umbilical hernia repair is one of the most common surgical performance in general surgery. Up to now, the use of suture repair has been the preferred technique for small umbilical hernia d...

Visible vs. Non-Visible Mesh in Underlay Positon After Repair of Umbilical Hernias

The purpose of this study is to determine the exact position of a mesh which is placed in underlay position in umbilical hernia in vitro. The investigators want to gain information if the ...

Minimally Invasive Closure of Umbilical Hernias

The purpose of the study is to test the use of "Deflux" injections in a minimally invasive closure of umbilical (belly button) hernias in infants between birth and five years. The study i...

The aim of this study was to analyze the shrinkage of two different screens in the repair of inguinal hernias in men . 32 patients with unilateral inguinal hernia were assigned randomly. ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Works about a study where participants are assigned to a treatment, procedure, or intervention by methods that are not random. Non-randomized clinical trials are sometimes referred to as quasi-experimental clinical trials or non-equivalent control group designs.

Clinical trials involving one or more test treatments, at least one control treatment, specified outcome measures for evaluating the studied intervention, and a bias-free method for assigning patients to the test treatment. The treatment may be drugs, devices, or procedures studied for diagnostic, therapeutic, or prophylactic effectiveness. Control measures include placebos, active medicines, no-treatment, dosage forms and regimens, historical comparisons, etc. When randomization using mathematical techniques, such as the use of a random numbers table, is employed to assign patients to test or control treatments, the trials are characterized as RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIALS AS TOPIC.

Clinical trials that involve at least one test treatment and one control treatment, concurrent enrollment and follow-up of the test- and control-treated groups, and in which the treatments to be administered are selected by a random process, such as the use of a random-numbers table.

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.

Strategy for the analysis of RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIALS AS TOPIC that compares patients in the groups to which they were originally randomly assigned.
