Predicting abdominal closure after component separation for complex ventral hernias: maximizing the use of preoperative computed tomography.


BACKGROUND Component separation techniques (CSTs) have allowed for midline fascial reapproximation in large midline ventral hernias. In certain cases, however, fascial apposition is not feasible, resulting in a bridged repair that is suboptimal. Previous estimates on myofascial advancement are based on hernia location and do not take into account… (More)
