PURPOSE: The abdominal wall and musculoskeletal tendons share many anatomic, physiologic, and functional characteristics. This review aims to highlight these similar characteristics and to present a rationale why the treatment principles of successful musculoskeletal tendon reconstruction, including principles of surgical technique and physical therapy, can be used in the treatment of complex abdominal wall reconstruction or ventral hernia repair. METHODS: The MEDLINE/PubMed database was used to identify published literature relevant to the purpose of this review...

INTRODUCTION: A meta-analysis of studies has shown that the incidence of ventral hernias varies from 4 to 10%. During the last twenty years, the use of laparoscopic repair of ventral and other hernias of the abdominal wall has rapidly increased. PRESENTATION OF CASES: From January 2011 to March 2020 101 patients underwent laparoscopic ventral hernia repair (LVHR). The diameter of the hernial defect intraoperatively was in average 6.22 ± 5.17 cm (SD) (range 2-30 cm)...

BACKGROUND: Resorbable biomaterials have been developed to reduce the amount of foreign material remaining in the body after hernia repair over the long-term. However, on the short-term, these resorbable materials should render acceptable results with regard to complications, infections, and reoperations to be considered for repair. Additionally, the rate of resorption should not be any faster than collagen deposition and maturation; leading to early hernia recurrence. Therefore, the objective of this study was to collect data on the short-term performance of a new resorbable biosynthetic mesh (Phasix™) in patients requiring Ventral Hernia Working Group (VHWG) Grade 3 midline incisional hernia repair...

PURPOSE: Hernias severely impact patient quality of life (QoL), and 80% of patients require a surgical operation. Moreover, hernias are responsible for respiratory function alterations. This study aims to investigate the postoperative alterations in respiratory function after open ventral hernia repair in patients with incisional hernia. METHODS: Patients operated on at the Policlinico "Paolo Giaccone" at Palermo University Hospital between January 2015 and December 2016 were identified in a prospective database...

Incisional ventral hernia occurs after almost every fourth laparotomy. Still, both simple suturing of the hernia defect and open mesh repair, lead to a high incidence of infections and recurrences. In recent years, we have observed a further evolution of operational techniques used in order to reduce the number of complications. The search for effective repair methods is currently going in two directions: on the one hand, techniques to reduce tissue tension in the suture line are being developed and disseminated (including modifications to the so-called Ramirez technique); on the other hand, minimally invasive techniques are introduced that allow placement of large synthetic meshes without the need for extensive tissue dissection using open repair...

BACKGROUND: Ventral hernia repair (VHR) is one of the most common general surgery procedures; however, few studies with long-term follow-up of VHR outcomes exist. METHODS: We performed a retrospective review of VHRs performed from 2000 to 2009 at a single institution. Our primary outcome was recurrence, and secondary outcomes were reoperations and complications including seroma, hematomas, abdominal wall abscess, wound infections, and mesh infections. RESULTS: Our sample population (n=420; mean age 46...

BACKGROUND: Port site hernias (PSH) are underreported following laparoscopic ventral hernia repair (LVHR). Most occur at the site of laterally placed 10-12-mm ports used to introduce large pieces of mesh. One alternative is to place the large port through the ventral hernia defect; however, there is potential for increased risk of surgical site infection (SSI). This study evaluates the outcomes when introducing mesh through a 10-12-mm port placed through the hernia defect. METHODS: This was a retrospective case series of patients who underwent LVHR in three prospective trials from 2014-2017 at one institution...

Treatment of patients with ventral hernias remains one of the most pressing problems of abdominal surgery. Surgeons are trying to find a «gold standard» for the treatment of this pathology. Great hopes are placed on minimally invasive techniques, however, due to their high cost, they do not yet find mass distribution in everyday practice. In our opinion, this is short-sighted. We tried to analyze the feasibility of using minimally invasive techniques in the treatment of patients with ventral hernias of various locations, from the position of clinical and economic efficiency...

OBJECTIVES: Laparoscopic ventral hernia repair (LVHR) has been shown to decrease wound complications and length of stay (LOS) but results in more postoperative discomfort. The benefits of LVHR for the growing geriatric population are unclear. The aim of our study is to evaluate long-term outcomes and quality of life (QOL) after LVHR in the geriatric population. METHODS: A prospectively collected single-center database was queried for all patients who underwent LVHR (1999-2019)...

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...

BACKGROUND: Increased recognition of the dangers of opioid analgesia has led to significant focus on strategies for reducing use through multimodal analgesia, enhanced recovery protocols, and standardized guidelines for prescribing. Our institution implemented a standard protocol for prescribing analgesics at discharge after ventral hernia repair (VHR). We hypothesize that this strategy significantly reduces opioid use. METHODS: A standardized protocol for discharge prescribing was implemented in March 2018...

INTRODUCTION: Lateral ventral hernia (LVH) is rare and can be primary or secondary. Surgical treatment of this rare hernia type is challenging due the anatomic location and technical challenges in placement and secure anchoring of mesh. METHOD: Patient demographic data, intra-operative data and post-operative outcomes on all LVH repairs performed with endo-laparoscopic and robotic approach between 2016 to 2018 were reviewed and analysed. RESULTS: 22 LVH were repaired in 21 patients...

INTRODUCTION: Anterior component separation (ACS) is a well-established, highly functional technique to achieve fascial closure in complex abdominal wall reconstruction (AWR). Unfortunately, ACS is also associated with an increased risk of wound complications. Perforator sparing ACS (PS-ACS) has more recently been introduced to maintain the subcutaneous perforators derived from the deep epigastric vessels. The aim of this study is to evaluate wound-related outcomes in patients undergoing open AWR after implementation of a PS-ACS technique...

BACKGROUND: The merits of laparoscopic (LVHR) and open preperitoneal ventral hernia repair (OPPVHR) have been debated for more than 2 decades. Our aim was to determine peri-operative and long-term outcomes in large hernias. METHODS: A prospective, institutional database at a tertiary hernia center was queried for patients undergoing LVHR and OPPVHR. One-to-one propensity score matching was performed for hernia defect size and follow-up. RESULTS: Three hundred and fifty-two LVHR and OPPVHR patients were identified with defect sizes closely matched between laparoscopic (182...

BACKGROUND: Recent data on opioid consumption indicate that patients typically require far less than is prescribed. Prisma Health Upstate Hernia Center adopted standardized postoperative prescribing after hernia repair and began tracking patient-reported opioid utilization. The aim of this study is to evaluate patient opioid use after hernia repair in order to guide future prescribing. METHODS: All patients who underwent primary ventral (umbilical and epigastric), incisional, and inguinal hernia repair between February and May 2019 were reviewed...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to quantify the risk of incarceration of incisional hernias. BACKGROUND: Operative repair is the definitive treatment for incisional ventral hernias but is often deferred if the perceived risk of elective operation is elevated secondary to comorbid conditions. The risk of incarceration during nonoperative management (NOM) factors into shared decision making by patient and surgeon; however, the incidence of acute incarceration remains largely unknown...

A hernia is a common surgical problem. Although hernias during pregnancy are uncommon, they can be challenging for both the surgeon and the patient if present. To date, there is no consensus in the medical community regarding the elective repair of hernias in pregnant women. The debate mainly concerns three areas: the timing, the approach, and the surgical technique. This study aims to offer a clear pathway in this field based on the best available data. In this study, we collected reviews written in English and published in PubMed from 2010 to 2020 (the exception being three articles that were published before 2010, which we retained since they contained relevant information)...
