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 implanted prosthesis, comparing the two most useful position of mesh in abdominal wall hernia surgery.

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 protocol is to determine the safety and efficacy of abdominal wall transplantation as a treatment for the reconstruction of abdominal wall defects. Abdominal wall trans...
Mesh infection is the main complication in abdominal hernia repair. In case of infection, a conservative management of mesh is not always possible. The removal of the mesh (occurring in 5....
Background: A detailed study of the biomechanical changes before and after abdominal wall reconstruction (AWR) has not been performed. Changes in abdominal wall tension and intra-abdominal...
Quantitative radiographic imaging holds promise as a novel and innovative strategy to assess ventral hernia patients. Assessing abdominal wall changes surrounding ventral hernia using shea...
Assess the utility of a hands-on workshop on abdominal wall reconstruction for teaching the posterior components separation (PCS) with transversus abdominis release.
Porcine acellular dermal matrix (PADM) has been promoted as a suitable material for the reinforcement of the abdominal wall in Ventral Hernia Working Group (VHWG) Grade 3/4 wounds by Ventral Hernia Wo...
Traumatic abdominal wall hernias are often accompanied by intra-abdominal injuries, and a stoma may be required. Although rare, stomal stenosis can develop after the repair of a traumatic abdominal wa...
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...
Preoperative intramuscular-administered botulinum toxin A (BTA) in the lateral abdominal muscles prior to abdominal wall reconstruction has been reported to produce a flaccid paralysis and improve the...
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.
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.
An abdominal hernia with an external bulge in the GROIN region. It can be classified by the location of herniation. Indirect inguinal hernias occur through the internal inguinal ring. Direct inguinal hernias occur through defects in the ABDOMINAL WALL (transversalis fascia) in Hesselbach's triangle. The former type is commonly seen in children and young adults; the latter in adults.
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.
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.
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...
An anesthesiologist (US English) or anaesthetist (British English) is a physician trained in anesthesia and perioperative medicine. Anesthesiologists are physicians who provide medical care to patients in a wide variety of (usually acute) situations. ...
