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 of recurrent hernia after operative intervention is regrettably high. Preliminary investigations suggest a role for primary mesh placement to prevent parastomal hernia. The use of a mesh as a preventive measure is a safe procedure. This study will focus on the effect of primary mesh placement (two different operative procedures are used) compared to patients without mesh placement.

Parastomal hernias are randomised to either a conventional stoma formed through the rectus anterior muscle or to the same procedure with the addition of a prophylactic mesh in a sublay pos...
The purpose of this study is to determine if a mesh is effective in the prevention of a parastomal hernia when a permanent ostomy is performed through a laparoscopic approach.
Randomized, controlled, prospective study of 54 patients receiving surgery for cancer of the lower third of the rectum with a permanent end colostomy. The aim of the study was to reduce pa...
The purpose of the study is to evaluate a new laparoscopic technique for parastomal hernia repair using an intraperitoneally placed Proceed mesh, looking at postoperative complications, re...
Specific aim: To compare patients with colostomies with or without mesh at the primary operation. Primary endpoint is the incidence of parastomal hernia requiring surgery. All pat...
Given the difficulty of durable repairs, there is continued interest in hernia prevention. One emerging prevention technique for parastomal hernias is prophylactic mesh placement, whereby mesh is inse...
Parastomal hernia is the most common complication after stoma creation. They can create significant morbidity and are associated with a lower quality of life. Current parastomal hernia repair techniqu...
Parastomal hernia (PSH), defined as an incisional hernia at the abdominal wall defect resulting from stoma formation, is a frequent complication of enterostomy (ileostomy and jejunostomy), colostomy, ...
This study aimed to present a modified laparoscopic keyhole parastomal hernia repair technique with in situ re-ostomy and show its safety and feasibility at a mid-term follow-up.
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...
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.
