To compare the complete repair of the abdominal wall at the level of the former incision with only a partial repair at the level of the hernia in patients with an incisional hernia after m...
The objective of the study is reduction of the incidence of the most frequent complication of abdominal surgery, incisional hernia. In this multi center double-blinded prospective randomi...
This study will collect data on patients undergoing hernia repair using the Bard Ventrio Hernia Patch. The study will evaluate hernia recurrence rates, operating time, quality of life and...
The study attempts to quantify the relative risks for recurrence depending on complex combinations of plausible risk factors, in particular mesh, mesh fixation, hernia size and hernia type...
This study will determine whether laparoscopic and open hernia repair have the same recurrence and complication rates in the under 60yr old age group. The overall financial costs of each r...
Lindbom's hernia is very rare; treatment in symptomatic patients is hernia reduction. This can be temporary, performed endoscopically, but definitive cure is surgical. The surgeon can choose between s...
Developments in inguinal hernia surgery have substantially lowered recurrence rates, yet recurrences remain an important outcome parameter of inguinal hernia repair. The aim of this study was to analy...
Laparoscopic groin hernia repair has become increasingly popular. In Denmark, all groin hernia repairs are registered in the Danish Hernia Database. However, many surgical technical parameters are not...
Amyand's hernia is a rare type of hernia in which vermiform appendix is found in the hernial sac. We describe the case of an 18 month old boy in which a non-inflamed appendix was found incidentally in...
Statins and sildenafil have been shown to exert beneficial effects in cardiac injury. We hypothesized that antenatal maternal administration of simvastatin and/or sildenafil might also promote benefit...
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.
Groups that serve as a standard for comparison in experimental studies. They are similar in relevant characteristics to the experimental group but do not receive the experimental intervention.
A pelvic hernia through the obturator foramen, a large aperture in the hip bone normally covered by a membrane. Obturator hernia can lead to intestinal incarceration and INTESTINAL OBSTRUCTION.
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 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.
