A modern approach to incisional hernia is oriented toward midline restoration to re-establish abdominal wall physiology and to restore muscular strength. A high-protein diet has been demonstrated to improve muscle function and mass. The aim of this prospective study was to evaluate the effect of a high-protein diet on abdominal muscle remodeling in patients submitted to abdominal wall reconstruction (AWR). Forty-five patients submitted to elective AWR were prospectively divided into two groups depending on pre- and postoperative daily protein assumption: Group A patients were submitted to a standard 2300 kcal diet with 103 g of protein intake (males) and 1800 kcal diet with 80 g of protein intake (females) starting one month before surgery and lasting for three months postoperatively; Group B patients were submitted to the same dietary regimen plus 34 g of purified proteins daily...

Tension-free repairs have revolutionized the way we repair hernias. To help reduce undue tension when performing ventral hernia repair, multiple different techniques of myofascial releases have been described. The purpose of this project is to evaluate tension measurements for commonly performed myofascial releases in abdominal wall hernia repair. Patients undergoing myofascial release techniques for their ventral hernias were enrolled in a prospective Institutional Review Board-approved protocol to measure abdominal wall tension from June 1, 2011 to August 1, 2019...

PURPOSE: Lower transverse abdominal incisions are typically used by obstetricians/gynecologists and colorectal surgeons. The suture technique and choice of material when closing the abdomen is an essential factor to decrease the risk of incisional hernia. We conducted a nationwide survey among obstetricians/gynecologists and colorectal surgeons investigating the surgical handling of the fascia, rectus muscle, subcutis, peritoneum, and skin, in lower transverse incisions. METHODS: All departments of obstetrics/gynecology and departments of surgery performing colorectal surgery in Denmark were invited to participate...

BACKGROUND: Recurrence rates after ventral hernia repair vary widely and evidence about risk factors for recurrence are conflicting. There is little evidence for risk factors for long-term recurrence. METHODS: Patients who underwent ventral hernia repair at our institution and were captured in the American College of Surgeons-National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database between 2002 and 2015 were included. We reviewed all demographic, procedural, and hernia-specific data...

BACKGROUND: Weight loss is often encouraged or required before open ventral hernia repair. This study evaluates the impact of weight change on total, intra-abdominal, subcutaneous, and hernia volume. METHODS: Patients who underwent open ventral hernia repair from 2007 to 2018 with two preoperative computed tomography scans were identified. Scans were reviewed using 3D volumetric software. Demographics, operative characteristics, and outcomes were evaluated. The impact of weight change on intra-abdominal, subcutaneous, and hernia volume was assessed using Spearman's correlation coefficients and linear regression models...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this systematic review and meta-analysis was to determine whether complete removal of infected hernia mesh (CMR) provides better results as compared to partial removal (PMR). METHODS: PubMed, EMBASE, Cochrane Library, and MEDLINE via Ovid were systematically searched for records published from 1980 to 2018 by three independent researchers (GM, GS, and GG). Quality assessment, data extraction and analysis were performed according to the Cochrane Handbook for Systematic Reviews of Interventions...

BACKGROUND: Despite recent advances in the operative management of complex ventral hernia (CVH), significant challenges remain. Closure of large defects can have serious pathophysiological consequences due to chronic contraction and retraction of the lateral abdominal wall muscles. Certain features of CVH make repair technically demanding and time consuming, such as massive fascial defects, unusual hernia locations, involvement of other abdominal wall structures and previous tissue trauma...

BACKGROUND: The open abdomen (OA) is an important approach for managing intra-abdominal catastrophes and continues to be the standard of care. Despite this, challenges remain as it is associated with a high incidence of complications and poor outcomes. The objective is to perform a systematic review on dynamic closure techniques for fascial closure during open abdomen management. METHODS: An electronic database search was conducted involving 4 different databases (MEDLINE (PubMed), SCOPUS, WEB OF SCIENCE (WOS) and EMBASE)...

PURPOSE: Lateral abdominal wall hernias are rare defects but, due to their location, repair is difficult, and recurrence is common. Few studies exist to support a standard protocol for repair of these lateral hernias. We hypothesized that anchoring our repair to fixed bony structures would reduce recurrence rates. METHODS: A retrospective review of all patients who underwent lateral hernia repair at our institution was performed. RESULTS: Eight cases (seven flank and one thoracoabdominal) were reviewed...

PURPOSE: The closure of midline in abdominal wall incisional hernias is an essential principle. In some exceptional circumstances, despite adequate component separation techniques, this midline closure cannot be achieved. This study aims to review the results of using both anterior and component separation in these exceptional cases. METHODS: We reviewed our experience using the combination of both anterior and posterior component separation in the attempt to close the midline...

PURPOSE: The approach to repairing an initial umbilical hernia (IUH) varies substantially, and this likely depends on hernia size, patient age, sex, BMI, comorbidities including diabetes mellitus, and surgeon preference. Of these, only hernia size has been widely studied. This cross-sectional study aims to look at the practice pattern of umbilical hernia repair in the United States. METHODS: A retrospective study was performed using data from the America Hernia Society Quality Collaborative...

INTRODUCTION: Currently, the need for additional myofascial release (AMR) in addition to retromuscular dissection during open Rives-Stoppa hernia repair is determined intraoperatively based on the discretion of the surgeon. We developed a novel method to objectively predict the need for AMR preoperatively using computed tomography (CT)-measured rectus width to hernia width ratio (RDR). METHODS: A retrospective chart review of all patients who underwent open retro-muscular mesh repair of midline ventral hernia between August 1, 2007 and February 1, 2018, who had a preoperative CT scan within 1 year prior to their operation...
