Delayed hypersensitivity and lymphocyte subsets in a group of adult splenectomized patients after abdominal trauma without associated disease have been studied. The results were compared with those observed in healthy individuals. The results show a decreased cutaneous reaction against extracts of Streptococcus and diphtheria antigens. Moreover, an increase(More)
BACKGROUND To compare the results with complete mesh removal (CMR) versus partial mesh removal (PMR) in the treatment of mesh infection after abdominal wall hernia repair (AWHR). METHODS Retrospective review of all patients who underwent surgery for mesh infection between January 2004 and May 2014 at a tertiary center. RESULTS Of 3470 cases of AWHR, we(More)
Humoral immunity was examined in a population of one hundred adult patients splenectomized after abdominal trauma without associated disease, and the results were compared with those observed in healthy individuals. We found, in addition to the disorders, a large increase in the seric concentration of total IgE, and increased presence of autoantibodies and(More)
An increasing number of patients have large or complex abdominal wall defects.

BACKGROUND The main objective was to identify predictive factors associated with prosthesis infection and mesh explantation after abdominal wall hernia repair (AWHR). METHODS This is a retrospective review of all patients who underwent AWHR from January 2004 to May 2014 at a tertiary center. Multivariate analysis identified predictors of mesh infection(More)
Introduction: Laparoscopic totally extraperitoneal (TEP) hernia repair is a well accepted technique for groin hernias. Staple fixation of mesh during laparoscopic TEP groin hernia repair is thought to be necessary to prevent recurrence. However, mesh fixation may increase surgical complications like chronic groin pain, osteitis pubis, increased operative(More)
