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.

Pol Przegl Chir 2019 02;91(1):47-68

Klinika Anestezjologii i Intensywnej Terapii, Centrum Medyczne Kształcenia Podyplomowego w Warszawie

It is estimated that there are over 310 million surgeries performed in the world every year. Appropriate analgesic management in the perioperative period constitutes a fundamental right of every patient, significantly reducing the number of postoperative complications and the time and costs of hospitalization, particularly in the high-risk group of patients (ASA III-V) subject to extensive surgical procedures and hospitalized in intensive care units. Despite such significant arguments speaking for the conduct of effective analgesia in the perioperative period, nearly 79% of patients operated in hospitalization settings and 71% of patients operated in outpatient settings (so-called first day surgery) experienced postoperative pain of moderate, strong or extreme intensity.
