BACKGROUND: In hernia surgery, soaking of meshes in antibiotics before implantation is a prophylactic strategy for minimizing the risk of infection while providing minimal, local, drug doses. This study describes the development and application of an antibacterial mesh coating comprising a carboxymethylcellulose gel loaded with rifampicin in a preclinical model of Staphylococcus aureus and S. epidermidis infection in rabbits. METHODS: Antibacterial activity and cytocompatibility (with fibroblasts) of unloaded carboxymethylcellulose gel and 0...

BACKGROUND: FD occurs in up to 14.9% of high-risk patients undergoing emergency laparotomy. While prophylactic mesh may prevent FD, its use in emergency surgery remains controversial. STUDY DESIGN: A prospective randomized clinical trial was conducted at the Hospital das Clínicas from Faculdade de Medicina da Universidade de São Paulo in Brazil. It was performed among high-risk patients, defined according to Rotterdam risk model, undergoing midline emergency laparotomy...

PURPOSE: Laparoscopic intraperitoneal onlay mesh in hernia repair can result in adhesions leading to intestinal obstruction and fistulation. The aim of this systematic review is to compare the effects of mesh coatings reducing the tissue-to-mesh adhesion in animal studies. METHODS: Pubmed and Embase were systematically searched. Animal experiments comparing intraperitoneally placed meshes with coatings were eligible for inclusion. Only studies with comparable follow-up, measurements, and species were included for data pooling and subsequent meta-analysis...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this paper is to communicate two new concepts with the potential to cause major morbidity in hernia repair, effective porosity and biofilm. These 2 concepts are interrelated and have the potential to result in mesh-related complications. Effective porosity is a term well described in the textile industry. It is best defined as the changes to pore morphology after implantation of mesh in situ. It is heavily dependent on mesh construct and repair technique and has the potential to impact hernia repair by reducing mesh tissue integration and promoting fibrosis...

BACKGROUND: Incisional hernias are a common complication of emergency laparotomy and are associated with significant morbidity. Recent studies have found a reduction in incisional hernias when mesh is placed prophylactically during abdominal closure in elective laparotomies. This systematic review will assess the safety and efficacy of prophylactic mesh placement in emergency laparotomy. METHODS: A systematic review was performed according to the PROSPERO registered protocol (CRD42018109283)...

Management of incarcerated hernias is a common issue facing general surgeons across the USA. When hernias are not able to be reduced, surgeons must make decisions in a short time frame with limited options for patient optimization. In this article, we review assessment and management options for incarcerated ventral and inguinal hernias.

BACKGROUND: Incisional hernia (IH) is one of the most frequent complications after abdominal surgery. Follow-up with regard to IH remains challenging. Physical examination and imaging to diagnose IH are time-consuming and costly, require devotion of both the physician and patient, and are often not prioritized. Therefore, a patient-reported diagnostic questionnaire for the diagnosis of IH was developed. Objective of this study was to validate this questionnaire in a consecutive sample of patients...

PURPOSE: Primary (PVHs) and incisional (IHs) ventral hernias represent a common indication for surgery. Nevertheless, most of the papers presented in literature analyze both types of defect together, thus potentially introducing a bias in the results of interpretation. The purpose of this systematic review and meta-analysis is to highlight the differences between these two entities. METHODS: Methods MEDLINE, Scopus, and Web of Science databases were reviewed to identify studies evaluating the outcomes of both open and laparoscopic repair with mesh of PVHs vs IHs...

PURPOSE: In a subset of patients with massive and multiply recurrent hernias, despite performing a transversus abdominis release (TAR), anterior fascial re-approximation is not feasible and a bridged repair is required. We aim to report on the outcomes of this patient population at our institution. METHODS: Patients that underwent a TAR-bridged repair at the Cleveland Clinic were identified retrospectively within the Americas Hernia Society Quality Collaborative (AHSQC) database...

BACKGROUND: The currently mainly used techniques of primary ventral hernia repair have specific disadvantages and risks. METHODS: To minimize complications of the existing open and laparoscopic techniques of ventral hernia repair, the endoscopic-assisted or endoscopic Mini- or Less-Open Sublay (E/MILOS) concept was developed. This paper reports on our experience with the E/MILOS concept for the management of primary umbilical and epigastric hernias. All E/MILOS operations were prospectively documented in the German hernia registry "Herniamed"...

BACKGROUND: Considering recently published high-level evidence on the management of primary midline ventral hernias, we set out to review current practices and reevaluate the literature surrounding this topic. METHODS: The Americas Hernia Society Quality Collaborative (AHSQC) was used to abstract all uncomplicated primary midline ventral hernias. The primary outcomes of interest were surgical approaches, including the use of mesh, the type and position of mesh, and the use of minimally invasive surgery (MIS)...

PURPOSE: Currently available local anesthetics have not demonstrated sufficient analgesia beyond 12-24 h postoperatively. The purpose of the study was to assess the safety and efficacy of HTX-011 (bupivacaine and meloxicam in Biochronomer® polymer technology), a long-acting investigational anesthetic, in reducing both postoperative pain over 72 h and postoperative opioid use compared to bupivacaine hydrochloride (HCl). METHODS: A phase 3, randomized, double-blind, active-controlled multi-center study (EPOCH 2; NCT03237481) in subjects undergoing unilateral open inguinal herniorrhaphy with mesh placement was performed...

BACKGROUND: Incisional hernia (IH) is one of the most common sequelae of laparotomy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We present a double-blind randomized study examining feasibility, safety and incisional hernia rate using a prophylactic Bio-A biosynthetic stripe (Gore) in a sub-lay position after midline laparotomy in patients undergoing operations in clean-contaminated and contaminated field. One hundred patients who underwent a midline laparotomy of at least 10 cm in a clean-contaminated and contaminated field were considered...

BACKGROUND: Abdominal wall reconstruction in patients presenting with enteric fistulas and mesh infection is challenging. There is a consensus that synthetic mesh must be avoided in infected operations, and the alternatives to using synthetic mesh, such as component separation techniques and biologic mesh, present disappointing results with expressive wound infection and hernia recurrence rates. METHODS: A prospective clinical trial designed to evaluate the short- and long-term outcomes of 40 patients submitted to elective abdominal wall repair with synthetic mesh in the dirty-infected setting, and compared to a cohort of 40 patients submitted to clean ventral hernia repairs...

BACKGROUND: The abdominal wall can be considered comprised of two compartments: an anterior and a posterior compartment. The anterior compartment includes the anterior rectus sheath and the rectus muscle. The posterior compartment comprises the posterior rectus sheath, the transversalis fascia, and the peritoneum. When a large defect in the anterior compartment has to be corrected, for example, a rectus diastasis or large incisional hernia, an action on the anterior compartment is necessary; therefore, an anterior component separation has to be considered...

PURPOSE: Ventral hernia repair has become a common procedure, but the way in which it is performed still depends on surgeon's skill, experience, and habit. The initial open approach is faced with extensive dissection and a high risk of infection and prolonged hospital stay. To tackle these problems, minimally invasive procedures are gaining interest. Several new techniques are emerging, but laparoscopic intra-peritoneal onlay mesh (IPOM) is still the mainstay for many surgeons. We will discuss why laparoscopic IPOM is still a valuable approach in the treatment of primary non-complicated midline hernias and review the current literature...

BACKGROUND: Due to the increased prevalence of overweight patients with ventral hernia, abdominal wall reconstruction combining ventral hernia repair (VHR) with panniculectomy (VHR-PAN) in overweight patients is increasingly considered. We present a retrospective comparison between VHR-PAN and VHR alone in overweight patients by examining costs, clinical outcomes, and quality of life (QoL). METHODS: Patients with body mass index (BMI) > 25.0 kg/m2 underwent VHR-PAN or VHR alone between September 2015 and May 2017 with a single surgeon and were matched into cohorts by BMI and age (n = 24 in each cohort)...
