A Clinical Study to Evaluate the Clinical Performance and Safety of LiquiBand FIX8 ® Versus AbsorbaTack™ for Hernia Mesh Fixation and Peritoneal Closure in Groin Hernia Repair
Conditions: Hernia; Inguinal Hernia; Femoral Hernia; Groin Hernia Interventions: Device: LiquiBand FIX8®; Device: AbsorbaTack™ Sponsor: Advanced Medical Solutions Ltd. Not yet recruiting
ConclusionsThe current study shows a favorable response to reinforced biologics, which were associated with an initial inflammatory response, resolving by later time points, followed by active remodeling, and the formation of new morphologically functional collagen.
CONCLUSION: Closure of the fascial defect in laparoscopic umbilical hernia IPOM repair significantly reduced early seroma formation and long-term recurrence without inducing side-effects such as pain, or other early or late PROMs. Registration number: NCT01962480 ( https://www.clinicaltrials.gov).

AbstractBackgroundIncisional hernia repair requires detailed anatomic knowledge. Regarding median subxiphoidal hernias, the proper preparation of the fatty triangle is challenging. To foster proficiency-based training, a cost-efficient model for open median retromuscular mesh repair resembling the human body was developed, including the main anatomical structures related to the procedure. The aim is to create and validate a high-fidelity model on open retromuscular mesh repair suitable for"training before doing".Materials and methodsDifferent types of fabrics for imitation of connective tissue and 2-component sil...
CONCLUSIONS: Early-onset hernia mesh infection is mostly caused by St.aureus through exogenous contamination, whereas its late-onset counterpart might be a result of hematogenous or contact spread of intestinal flora. PMID: 31690215 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
ConclusionsWe discuss the two concepts of effective porosity and biofilm and propose potential measures to reduce mesh-related complications. This includes choosing mesh with superior mesh construct and technical nuances in implanting mesh to improve effective porosity. Furthermore, measures to reduce bacterial biofilm and its consequences are suggested.
ConclusionDirect defect closure has proven to be effective in reducing recurrence and seroma formation post-operatively in patients undergoing laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair. Randomized controlled trials will be required to further evaluate these outcomes.
CONCLUSION: Surgeons must work with the implant that best suits their patients' needs and that also provides good results and adequate working comfort. The PUMP technique performs well for ventral hernias sized between 2 and 4 cm without the need of midline reconstruction due to diastasis of the rectus muscles. It enables a local extraperitoneal mesh augmentation without the risk of intraperitoneal complications. PUMP repair lowers the risk of recurrence in comparison with suture repair without increasing the risk of complications. PMID: 31394581 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractObjectiveThe aim of the study was to develop, validate and analyze the educational impact of a high-fidelity simulation model for open preperitoneal mesh repair of an umbilical hernia.Summary of background dataThe number of surgical simulators available for training residents is limited. Primary for ethical reasons and secondary for the emerging pay-per-quality policies, practicing-on simulators rather than patients is considered gold standard. Validated full-procedural surgical models will become more and more important in training residents. Such models may assure that evidence-based standards regarding technical...
