Posterior component separation has become a common approach to complex abdominal wall reconstructions. This technique includes creation of an extraperitoneal retromuscular space for subsequent large synthetic mesh reinforcement. In certain cases, when complete restoration of “posterior” layer is precluded by significant tissue loss/damage, one proposed strategy is to replace the posterior fascia with an absorbable synthetic polyglactin (Vicryl) mesh. However, the safety of this strategy to… CONTINUE READING
