PURPOSE: Intraoperative fascial traction (IFT) for the treatment of large ventral hernias and loss of domain (LOD) hernias is a promising tool in abdominal wall surgery. However, little is known about the extent of gain in myofascial advancement especially for the anterior rectus sheath. We, therefore, used a cadaveric model to determine the medialization during IFT. METHODS: 4 fresh frozen specimens were used. Retromuscular preparation was carried out followed by IFT with diagonal vertical traction for 30 min...

PURPOSE: We assessed clinical outcomes of patients undergoing open hernia repair using STRATAFIX™ Symmetric, a barbed triclosan-coated suture (TCS; Ethicon), versus conventional polydioxanone suture (PDS) for abdominal wall closure. METHODS: This single-center retrospective cohort study identified patients undergoing hernia repair. The site used PDS from 2013 to 2016 and switched exclusively to barbed TCS in 2017. Outcomes were assessed at 30, 60, and 90 days...

INTRODUCTION: Parastomal hernia repair is a real surgical challenge because of the high rate of recurrence. The Stapled Mesh Stoma Reinforcement Technique (SMART) is a keyhole-like technique in which the mesh is stapled to the fascia using a circular mechanical stapler. METHODS: A prospective study from January 2021 to February 2023 was conducted including all patients operated with the SMART technique. Primary endpoint was the recurrence rate during the follow-up...

BACKGROUND: Hiatal mesh repair remains a controversial topic among anti-reflux surgeons. Biosynthetic mesh cruroplasty may prevent early recurrence while avoiding late esophageal erosion and strictures associated with non-resorbable materials. So far, medium-term results on hiatal PH4B (Poly-4-Hydroxybutyrate) mesh repair from high-volume centers are lacking. METHODS: We analyzed the medium-term efficacy and safety of PH4B mesh cruroplasty in 176 consecutive patients (≥ 18 years) with symptomatic hiatal hernias...

BACKGROUND: Managing patients with abdominal wall hernias and multiple comorbidities can be challenging because these patients are at increased risk for postoperative complications. Preoperative optimization has been used to identify and intervene upon modifiable risk factors to improve hernia repair outcomes, however, waiting to achieve optimization may cause unnecessary delays. METHODS: We describe our approach to preoperative optimization in hernia and we review the current evidence for preoperative optimization...

PURPOSE: The safety of laparoscopic inguinal-hernia repair must be carefully evaluated in elderly patients. Very little is known regarding the safety of the laparoscopic approach in elderly patients under surgical and medical co-management (SMC). Therefore, this study evaluated the safety of the laparoscopic approach in elderly patients, especially patients with multiple comorbidities under SMC. METHODS: From January 2012 to December 2021, patients aged ≥ 65 years who underwent open or laparoscopic inguinal-hernia repair during hospitalization were consecutively enrolled...

BACKGROUND: Surgical management of large ventral hernias (VH) has remained a challenge. Various techniques like anterior component separation and posterior component separation (PCS) with transversus abdominis release (TAR) have been employed. Despite the initial success, the long-term efficacy of TAR is not yet comprehensively studied. Authors aimed to investigate the early-, medium-, and long-term outcomes and health-related quality of life (QoL) in patients treated with PCS and TAR...

INTRODUCTION: Large abdominal wall hernias often require techniques for wall expansion to improve surgical outcomes. The peritoneal flap hernioplasty (PF) is one such technique that utilizes the hernia sac to reconstruct the abdominal wall, however, with limited published data. It is a modification of the Rives-Stoppa mesh repair where a part of the bisected hernia sac is utilized to reconstruct the anterior fascia and the other part for the posterior fascia. We present a collated retrospective analysis of the outcomes from three centers performing PF with or without transverse abdominis release (TAR) in patients with complex ventral hernias...

PURPOSE: Abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS) is a well-known concept after trauma surgery or after major abdominal surgery in critically ill patients. However, ACS as a complication after complex hernia repair is considered rare and supporting literature is scarce. As complexity in abdominal wall repair increases, with the introduction of new tools and advanced techniques, ACS incidence might rise and should be carefully considered when dealing with complex abdominal wall hernias. In this narrative review, a summary of the current literature will highlight several key features in the diagnosis and management of ACS in complex abdominal wall repair and discuss several treatment options during the different steps of complex AWR...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic revisional surgery for recurrent hiatal hernia (HH) is technically demanding. Re-recurrences are common and esophageal hiatus mesh reinforcement might improve durability of the repair, thus minimizing the risk of re-herniation. PURPOSE: Assess safety and effectiveness of simple suture repair (no mesh group) vs. crural augmentation with a biosynthetic absorbable mesh (mesh group) in patients with recurrent HH. METHODS: Observational retrospective study from September 2012 to December 2022...

INTRODUCTION: Surgical treatment of type I hiatal sliding hernias aims to control the gastroesophageal reflux symptoms and prevention of hernia recurrence. Usually, a cruroplasty is performed to narrow the hiatal orifice. Here, it remains controversial if a mesh reinforcement of the cruroplasty should be performed, since benefits as well as mesh-associated complications have been described. METHODS: We performed a propensity-score matching analysis with data derived from the Herniamed registry comparing patients undergoing laparoscopic type I hiatal hernia repair with and without synthetic mesh...

PURPOSE: The New England VA Hernia Registry was created in 2011 to prospectively collect relevant details of ventral hernia repairs, with the intention to assess and improve long term outcomes. The goal of this study is to assess registry compliance. METHODS: All ventral hernia operations performed in five VA hospitals between 2011-2022 were obtained. We assessed compliance at the hospital and surgeon level. RESULTS: 3,516 cases were performed...

REVIEW
H Riediger, F Köckerling
INTRODUCTION: Incisional hernias with a defect width of more than10 cm are considered complex. The European Hernia Society guidelines recommend that such hernias should only be repaired by surgeons with experience of component separation. The standard component separation technique now is posterior component separation with transversus abdominis release (PCSTAR). Questions are raised about the limits of this technique. METHODS: A literature search of publications on PCSTAR was performed for any references to the limits of this technique in open incisional hernia repair...

PURPOSE: Repair of midline ventral incisional hernias (VIHR) requires mesh reinforcement. Mesh types can be categorised into synthetic, biosynthetic, or biological. There is a lack of evidence to support one type of mesh over another. The aim of this pilot study was to compare mesh sensation in patients having undergone elective open repair with synthetic or biosynthetic mesh. METHODS: Four years of prospectively collected data were retrospectively reviewed on 40 patients who had undergone VIHR, using either biosynthetic or synthetic mesh placed in the retromuscular plane...
