[The surgical treatment of the diastasis recti abdominis: an original technique of prosthesis repair of the abdominal wall].

Abstract

The Authors talk about on the surgical correction of the diastasis recti abdominis and underline its indications and aims. Firstly, they specify the possibilities and define the limits of the traditional surgical method. Secondly, they illustrate the rational of an innovating and original technique of prosthesis repair of the abdominal anterior wall setted up to treat the important diastasis recti abdominis. Particularly, this technique is the result of a kind of eclecticism and integration of some phases of the Quénu's self-plastic surgery and of the Welti-Eudel and Chevrel's technique. Thirdly, the authors describe the sequence of the times of the new technique and present the preliminary clinical experience carried out with it. Therefore, they determine gratifying and encouraging the findings of this method as regards the immediate and enduring curative efficacy (cosmetic and functional), the security and the compliance of the patient. Finally, in accordance with the outcomes, the authors decide to defend the undoubted reliability of the prosthesis repair of the abdominal wall to treat the big diastasis recti abdominis. Moreover, they intend to pass definitive judgement on the method after further clinical experiences on larger series of cases.
