Aim of the study is to evaluate the risk reduction of intraperitoneal mesh-implementation after laparotomy (Group 1) in a randomized control trial compared with patients with standard abdominal closure (Everett-suture). This is the primary endpoint. Second endpoints are the feasibility of mesh-implementation even after colorectal surgery, find risk factors for wound infection and incisional hernia.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Approximately 1/3 of patients with a permanent end-colostomy will experience a hernia around the stoma. In some cases these problems result in the need of surgical correction and the risk ...
Investigators are testing whether tacking mesh or self-fixating mesh used for inguinal hernia repair makes any difference in short-term pain or return to normal activities following the op...
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...
Optilene® Mesh Elastic and Ultrapro® Mesh will be used for incisional hernia repair. The primary objective of this clinical study is to demonstrate that Optilene® Mesh Elastic is superi...
The purpose of the study is 1. To compare the recurrence rate of the laparoscopic total extra peritoneal inguinal hernia repair without fixation of the mesh to mesh fixation under ...
Primary ventral hernia (PVH) and incisional hernia (IH) repair using a mesh appears to reduce hernia recurrence. However, are the benefits of mesh offset in part by mesh-related complications? The aim...
Postoperative chronic pain is an important outcome of hernia surgery. In laparoscopic hernia surgery, either fixation outside the trapezoid of disaster or no fixation is recommended to avoid postopera...
Ventral hernias are a common surgical issue and a myriad of surgical mesh designs has been developed for their treatment. Many of these new mesh designs have not been extensively tested and their comp...
Mesh migration is a rare complication of surgery for a hiatal hernia. Here, we present the case of a 72-year-old who complained of dysphasia and bodyweight loss. Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy revea...
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.
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 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.
