AbstractPurposeIncisional hernia repair is a frequently performed operation worldwide. In this experimental study, our aim is to present the incisional hernia model after creating midline laparotomy and several type of defects on abdominal wall of the rats. Thereby, the method determined here may be used in future experimental incisional hernia repair studies.MethodsAfter approval, 32 male rats were randomly seperated into 4 groups of 8 animals each, and were operated to form an incisional hernia; Sham group, 5  cm incision group, 5 cm incision plus capitonnage group, and 5 cm incision plus 2 ×&...

ConclusionsLong-term implant results in abdominal wall repair and are not completely known, and literature is still lacking on this topic. Re-do surgery for subsequent pathological events may represent a way to increase our knowledge.

ConclusionRace is a contributing factor in who undergoes an emergent hernia repair in New York State. A significantly larger proportion of the African American population is undergoing hernia repair in the emergent setting. Socioeconomic status, as indicated by the significant number of Medicaid patients undergoing emergent hernia repairs, also plays a role.

ConclusionsForty-six cases were needed to achieve steadily decreasing operative times. We can assume that ensuring good-quality repairs, through maintenance of peritoneal flap integrity, was gradually improved after sixty-one cases. Moreover, familiarization with port placements and robotic docking was accomplished after forty-three cases.

ConclusionOur algorithm using both anterior or posterior component separation, together with  preoperative BTA injections and PPP, achieved an acceptable fascial closure rate. Further studies are needed to explore the individual potential of BTA injections and PPP, and to research whether these methods can prevent the need for component separation, as postoperative wound morbidity remains high in our study.

ConclusionWe present the first brazilian series to-date of the robotic assisted eTEP approach for ventral hernia repairs. Although long term outcomes require further analysis, its feasibility and reproducibility in experienced surgeons hands are evident, with safe and acceptable early postoperative outcomes.

AbstractPurposeTo evaluate and compare peri-operative outcomes through 30  days, including pain and quality of life (QOL) through 3 months across three cohorts of inguinal hernia repair (IHR) patients (robotic-assisted, laparoscopic, and open IHR).MethodsThe Prospective Hernia Study is an ongoing, multicenter, comparative, open-label analysis of clinical and patient-reported outcomes from robotic-assisted surgery (RAS) versus open and RAS versus laparoscopic IHR procedures. Patient responses to the Carolinas Comfort Scale (CCS) questionnaire provided QOL outcomes.Results504 enrolled patients underwent unilateral ...

AbstractBackgroundVentral hernia repair is common in the expanding aging population, but remains challenging due to their frequent comorbidities. The purpose of this study is to compare the surgical outcomes of open vs. laparoscopic ventral hernia repair in elderly patients.MethodsPatients  ≥ 65 years of age that underwent elective open or laparoscopic ventral hernia repair were identified from the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Project (NSQIP) database. To reduce potential selection bias, propensity scores were created for the likelihood of undergoing laparoscopic ...
