OBJECTIVE To reduce the incidence of incisional hernia (IH) in colorectal surgery by implanting a mesh on the overlay position. BACKGROUND The incidence of IH in colorectal surgery may be as high as 40%. IH causes severe health and cosmetic problems, and its repair increases health care costs. MATERIAL AND METHODS Randomized, controlled, prospective(More)
Survival in critically ill non-trauma patients may be improved by performing temporary abdominal closure using different surgical techniques. We describe the use of expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) mesh for temporary abdominal closure in a group of critical patients. We also evaluate definitive abdominal wall closure in these patients once they are(More)
Results: From the oncological database of rectal cancer patients treated from 2003 till 2012 (n = 317) a cohort of 153 patients that fulfilled the inclusion criteria was identified. Rectal cancer resection was performed by laparoscopy in 53 patients (34.6%) and by laparotomy in 100 patients (65.4%). A total of 18 IH (11,8%) were diagnosed at the stoma(More)
A fundamental problem of future networks is to get fully selforganized routing protocols with good scalability properties that produce good paths in a wide range of network densities. Current approaches, geographic routing and table based routing, fail to provide very good scalability with good paths in sparse networks. We propose a method based on the(More)
