BACKGROUND Incisional hernias occur at surgical abdominal incision sites, but the association with caesarean section (CS) has not been examined. [] Key MethodMATERIALS AND METHODS Population-based cohort study in Australia using linked birth and hospital data for women who gave birth from 2000 to 2011. Survival analysis was used to explore the association between CS and subsequent incisional hernia repair. Analyses were adjusted for confounding factors, including other abdominal surgery.
Incisional hernia after cesarean section: A systematic review.
Cesarean scar characteristics after scheduled and emergency Cesarean deliveries: A single center study
Scars resulting from scheduled cesarean sections are more thick, and with little incidence of defects than in emergency sections.
Ventral hernia: Patient selection, treatment, and management.
Despite the increasing use of advanced surgical techniques, availability of modern prosthetic materials, and increasing understanding of ventral hernias, the long-term outcome remains poor, with a 10-year failure rate (recurrence) of 30% in the simplest Ventral hernia defects and more than 70% in more complex ventralHernia repair.
Individualisierter oder Standardzugangsweg zum Abdomen
An analysis of the recent literature was carried out to clarify which access routes have advantages over other types of incision and to keep complications low.
Surgical complications after caesarean section: A population-based cohort study
More than one section, obesity and smoking significantly increased the risk for complications after caesarean section, and prevention of smoking and obesity among fertile women worldwide must continue to be a high priority.
Risk factors for repeat hernia repair in women of childbearing age
Among reproductive-aged women, childbirth, increasing age, comorbidities, smoking, obesity, and obesity increase risk of subsequent herniorrhaphy.

The present report shows that removal of mesh can safely control surgical site infection during pregnancy.
Standard of Open Surgical Repair of Suprapubic Incisional Hernias
The open approach for SIH repair was safe and efficient and could help moving toward a standardization of SIH surgical management, due to the paucity of adequate scientific studies.

The incidence of incisional hernia was influenced by the type of incison, as all those who developed incisionals had a midline incision, the need for additional operative procedures and antibiotic administration longer than usual with more potent antibiotics, and the presence of postoperative abdominal distention.
Incisional hernia after elective midline caesarean section: Incidence and risk factors -
An incisional hernia is higher than previously estimated in women undergoing ElMCS and Counseling on the family size will reduce the chance for further CS with its associated risk.
The modern management of incisional hernias
This work searched PubMed from 1970-2012 and Embase and the Cochrane Library from inception using the terms “hernia” and “incisional”and “ventral” (using the Boolean operator AND) and the reference lists were also used to identify studies of interest.
Comparison of transverse and vertical skin incision for emergency cesarean delivery.
Although the incidence of severe postcesarean delivery adhesions may be low, the presence of adhesion seems to be a more important factor associated with the delayed incision-to-delivery interval at repeat cesarean deliveries than does skin-incision type.
Elective Midline Laparotomy Closure: The INLINE Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
No further trials should be conducted for evaluation of technique and available materials for elective midline abdominal fascial closure, according to the results of the cumulative meta-analysis.
A survey of women and health providers about information regarding the timing of driving a car after experiencing a caesarean section
In NSW, around 30% of women experience a caesarean section, and few receive consistent information regarding driving after a caESarean delivery, according to a report commissioned by the Department of Health.
The Pfannenstiel or so called “bikini cut”: Still effective more than 100 years after first description
The original Pfannenstiel incision is discussed including the technique, history, current indications, advantages, and disadvantages, including the principles of less traumatic surgery and long-time use.
No consensus on restrictions on physical activity to prevent incisional hernias after surgery
Major disagreements exist on the degree of restrictions on physical activity that should be recommended for patients after colorectal surgery, as there is no evidence to support that specific restrictions prevent hernia formation.
