Long-Term Follow-up of Incisional Hernia Repaired With Intraperitoneal Mesh

2010-07-15 17:00:00 | BioPortfolio


The intraperitoneal repair has been proven safe for the repair of incisional hernia and is accepted, together with the subfascial or retromuscular repair as the "gold-standard" for the repair of incisional hernia. However no studies have convincingly proven that this approach is better than the on-lay repair.

The authors believe that the intraperitoneal repair performs better than the on-lay repair for incisional hernia.

Observational Biologic or Prosthetic Mesh

The purpose of this study is to assess the incidence of hernia recurrence with the use of biologic and prosthetic mesh in ventral hernia repair.

Mesh and Mesh Fixation in Laparoscopic Groin Hernia Surgery

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...

Comparison of Two Mesh/Fixation Concepts for Laparoscopic Ventral and Incisional Hernia Repair

This is a monocenter randomized controlled trial comparing two systems of mesh and fixation device for the laparoscopic ventral and incisional hernia repair with respect to pain. It has be...

Prevention of Parastomal Hernia by Primary Mesh Insertion

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 ...

Tacking Mesh Versus Self-fixating Mesh for Inguinal Hernia Repair

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...

Laparoscopic Ventral Hernia Repair with a Non-Woven Hernia Mesh.

Laparoscopic ventral hernia repair is a commonly performed procedure with a variety of mesh options. A relatively new mesh option is a non-woven polypropylene mesh with a silicone barrier designed for...

Dynamic creep properties of a novel nanofiber hernia mesh in abdominal wall repair.

Incisional hernia is the most common complication following abdominal surgery. While mesh repair is common, none of the current meshes mimic the physiology of the abdominal wall. This study compares s...

Clinical Value of Hernia Mesh Pathology Evaluation.

Hernia mesh removal is growing in demand. Meanwhile, there is no standard in handling the mesh specimen, nor is there any consensus on the clinical value of the surgical pathology findings.

Prevention of parastomal hernia after abdominoperineal resection with a prophylactic 3D-funnel mesh.

A prophylactic 3D-funnel mesh with keyhole technique (IPOM position) in abdominoperineal resection may significantly decrease parastomal hernia index without increasing morbidity. The aim of this retr...

Robotic approach to modified Sugarbaker parastomal hernia repair by performing transversus abdominis release - a video vignette.

Parastomal hernia (PH) is a common complication of r stoma surgery. Different mesh positions, mesh types and mesh configurations have been described for both open and minimally invasive approaches. Ho...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
