BACKGROUND Mesh implantation during abdominal wall reconstruction decreases rates of ventral hernia recurrence and has become the dominant method of repair. The authors provide a comprehensive comparison of surgical outcomes and complications by location of mesh placement following ventral hernia repair with onlay, interposition, retrorectus, or underlay(More)
BACKGROUND Published assessment tools have attempted to investigate patient-centered outcomes after abdominal wall defect repairs, including quality-of-life measures, functional outcomes, pain assessment, and overall satisfaction scores; however, health-related quality of life following hernia repair remains unclear. METHODS The MEDLINE, PubMed, and(More)
BACKGROUND Acellular dermal matrices have been increasingly used in abdominal wall reconstruction. Unique characteristics of these grafts have allowed surgeons to reconstruct increasingly complex abdominal wall defects. This has resulted in a myriad of complications related to the acellular dermal matrix with unique management strategies as compared with(More)
Complication rates following abdominal wall reconstruction (AWR) remain high. Early complications are related to skin necrosis and delayed healing, whereas late complications are related to recurrence. When concomitant body contouring procedures are performed, complication rates can be further increased. It is hypothesised that fluorescent angiography using(More)
PURPOSE Component separation (CS) is an effective technique for complex abdominal wall reconstruction (AWR). Reinforcement of the repair with mesh can add durability. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the indications and outcomes following CS combined with a porcine acellular dermal matrix (PADM) for reinforcement. METHODS A retrospective review(More)
BACKGROUND Outcomes using the porcine acellular dermal matrix (PADM) in abdominal wall reconstruction (AWR) have been reported when used for midline reinforcement; however, there have been no reports focused on outcomes when used as a bridging mesh. METHODS A retrospective review was conducted of all patients who underwent AWR with a non-cross-linked PADM(More)
Background: The laparoscopic approach to hernia repair has been advocated by many as a potentially superior method of herniorraphy. Several techniques have been described, each with its own proposed advantages. These techniques involve different anatomic approaches, the most recent of which is the totally extraperitoneal approach (TEPA). One presumed(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to systematically review patients who underwent laparoscopic ventral hernia repair (LVHR) and assess quality of life, pain, functionality, and patient satisfaction. DATA SOURCES MEDLINE, PubMed, and Cochrane database search identified 880 relevant articles. After the limits were applied, 14 articles were accepted(More)
Placement of retrievable inferior vena cava filters (rIVCF) may be beneficial in high-risk morbidly obese patients undergoing bariatric procedures. Patients with a previous history of venous thromboembolism (VTE) are at high risk for postoperative deep venous thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE). A prospective database of bariatric surgery patients(More)
