This study is being done to evaluate the use of a material (Alloderm collagen mesh) during the stomal formation operation (surgery that will create a mouth-like opening on the surface of the body to an internal organ) that you have been scheduled for. The main purpose of this research study is to see if using this material will lower the hernia rate compared to normal repair without this material. The secondary purpose is to evaluate if using this material will increase or decrease complication rates.
This study seeks to examine the ability of an implantable collagen matrix to reduce the incidence of parastomal hernia formation. Patients will be randomized preoperatively by a computer generated random allocation to either receive collagen mesh at the time of stoma formation, or to have stoma formation without mesh. Stomas without mesh will be made in the standard surgical fashion dictated by the type of stoma: ileostomy, colostomy, ileal conduit. Patients randomized to receive mesh will undergo stoma formation in an identical fashion, and will have a 8 cm x 12cm piece of AlloDerm mesh placed as a tissue reinforcement at the stoma site and extending under the midline incision. Patients will be followed with physical examinations at approximately 2weeks post-op, 3, 6, 9, 12, 24 months post-op, and will undergo CT scanning of the abdomen and pelvis at 12 and 24months to determine hernia occurrence.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Prevention

This study aim to assess long-term results of an incisional hernia-prophylactic mesh placement during stoma reversal after total mesorectal excision (TME) for rectal cancer
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 ...
Knowing that the risk of stoma associated herniation (parastomal or incisional) is 30-50% and the associated morbidity significant, standard placement of a prophylactic mesh upon stoma cre...
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...
It has been demonstrated that incisional hernia incidence after laparotomy can be safely reduced with the addition of a mesh to the conventional closure of the abdominal wall. There still ...
Parastomal hernia is a frequent complication of an abdominal wall stoma. Surgical repairs have high complication and recurrence rates. Several different techniques have been suggested to prevent paras...
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...
Morgagni hernias are a rare form of congenital diaphragmatic hernia, accounting for 2%-3% of cases. The presence of a simultaneous Morgagni hernia and paraesophageal hernia (PEH) is even more rare, wi...
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...
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.
