Surgical Outcomes in Lateral Abdominal Wall Reconstruction: A Comparative Analysis of Surgical Techniques.

J Am Coll Surg 2019 Apr 15. Epub 2019 Apr 15.

Department of Plastic Surgery, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX.

Background: Lateral abdominal wall (LAW) myofascial defects are a challenging reconstructive problem, and no consensus exists on their surgical management. We hypothesized that mesh repairs anchored to the non-yielding LAW boundaries [pillar-anchored repairs (PARs)] would provide more durable reconstructions with lower hernia recurrence and bulge occurrence rates compared to mesh repairs anchored to the surrounding oblique muscle complexes [direct repairs (DRs)].

Study Design: We retrospectively reviewed LAW reconstructions at a single center from 2004-2010. Read More

Biomechanical Behaviour and Biocompatibility of Ureidopyrimidinone-Polycarbonate Electrospun and Polypropylene Meshes in a Hernia Repair in Rabbits.

Materials (Basel) 2019 Apr 10;12(7). Epub 2019 Apr 10.

(A.W.B.).

Although mesh use has significantly improved the outcomes of hernia and pelvic organ prolapse repair, long-term recurrence rates remain unacceptably high. We aim to determine the in vivo degradation and functional outcome of reconstructed abdominal wall defects, using slowly degradable electrospun ureidopyrimidinone moieties incorporated into a polycarbonate backbone (UPy-PC) implant compared to an ultra-lightweight polypropylene (PP) textile mesh with high pore stability. Twenty four New-Zealand rabbits were implanted with UPy-PC or PP to either reinforce a primary fascial defect repair or to cover (referred to as gap bridging) a full-thickness abdominal wall defect.

Leg Med (Tokyo) 2019 Mar 25;38:32-35. Epub 2019 Mar 25.

Department of Forensic Medicine, Institute of Biomedical Sciences, Tokushima University Graduate School, Tokushima, Japan.

Internal abdominal hernia, defined as protrusion of viscera through a defect of the mesentery, has been considered a rare clinical entity. Recent clinical reviews reported a wide range of onset age (from newborns to the elderly) and symptoms (from minimal abdominal symptoms to severe acute abdomen). Sudden and unexpected death due to internal abdominal hernia is rare in infants or toddlers, and only 4 autopsy cases had been reported previously. Read More

Hernia 2019 Mar 28. Epub 2019 Mar 28.

Life Memorial Hospital, Bucharest, Romania.

Purpose: The aim of this article is to describe the technique and early follow-up results of abdominal wall reconstruction (AWR) by minimally invasive surgery (MIS); it concerns the already described endoscopic (retromuscular) Rives procedure (e-Rives) and posterior component separation with transversus abdominis release (TAR) by endoscopic approach (eTEP-TAR).

Method: This is a prospective study which consists of 60 patients operated on between May 2016 and December 2017 by a single surgeon and monitored until July 2018. This is a heterogenic cohort with different hernia types (lateral, median, combined) which were also treated with different meshes. Read More

Intraperitoneal alloplasty combined with the anterior separation technique in giant incisional hernias.

Pol Przegl Chir 2018 Dec;91(1):1-5

Ukrainian Hernia Society P.L. Shupyk National Medical Academy of Postgraduate Education, Department of Surgery and Proctology; Ukrainian Center for Surgical Treatment of Abdominal Hernia.

The use of the anterior technique for abdominal wall components separation combined with "onlay" alloplasty (ACST + onlay) in giant incisional hernias (IH) may pose a surgical challenge as it does not exclude increased intra-abdominal pressure (IAP) and the occurrence of abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS). There remains a high incidence of surgical site complications. In our view, the use of intra-abdominal alloplasty combined with anterior separation of the anterior abdominal wall components (ACST + IPOM) will contribute to the improvement of surgical outcomes in giant IH.
