Drainage Versus Sealant in Double Blinded Monocentric Open Incisional Hernia Repair

Mesh repair for open incisional hernia repair with fibrin sealant or with drainage


Functional Outcome After Incisional Hernia Repair: Open Versus Laparoscopic Repair

Midline incisional hernia is reported from 0,5 to 11% after abdominal operations. Discomfort, pain, body image alteration and diminished quality of life influences functional well being. Alteration in pulmonary function, risk of visceral incarceration or cutaneous complications are potential medical complications. Primary repair without mesh reinforcement is almost abandoned because ...


Functional Outcome After Groin Hernia Mesh Repair: Open Versus Laparoscopy

Hernia repair is the most frequent elective operation performed in general surgery. Chronic pain or persistent neuralgia has been recognized as a complication after inguinal hernia repair but was reported in the 1980s as a rare and infrequent condition. Studies from the mid 1990s have reported a higher frequency, with ...


Effects of Local Anesthesia on Post-operative Pain During Laparoscopic Inguinal Hernia Repair

To assess effect of local anesthetic into the preperitoneal space during laparoscopic hernia repair on post-operative pain.


Effect of Intraoperative Infiltration With Bupivacain on the Development of Chronic Pain After Inguinal Hernia Repair

264 patients scheduled for an inguinal hernia repair using one of three procedures (Lichtenstein, Barwell and TEP = total extraperitoneal hernioplasty) are being randomly allocated intra-operatively into two groups. Group I patients receive a local injection of 20ml Carbostesin® 0.25% at the end of the operation according to a standardised ...


PROPHYlactic Implantation of BIOlogic Mesh in Peritonitis (PROPHYBIOM)

To evaluate the efficacy of the use of swine dermal collagen prosthesis implanted preperitoneally as a prophylactic procedure against incisional hernia in patients operated in urgency/emergency setting in contaminated/infected fields with peritonitis. The aim of the study is to reduce the incidence of incisional hernia from 50% to 20%.


Biologic Versus Synthetic Mesh for Treatment of Paraesophageal Hernia

Patients will be randomized to either a synthetic (light weight synthetic or biologic (small intestinal submucosa [SIS]) mesh group. Endpoints will be measured up to 5 years for the study as a whole, at 6 months and at 60 months. Prior to and following laparoscopic paraesophageal hernia repair, patients will ...


Prophylaxis of Ileostomy Closure Site Hernia by Placing Mesh

Experimental: Reinforcement with Absorbable Mesh Closure of the ileostomy closure incision is reinforced with insertion of a rectangular segment (1 cm wide and the length corresponding to the incision) of a prosthetic commercially available GORE BIO-A Tissue Reinforcement prosthesis (W. L. Gore & Associates, Flagstaff, Arizona, USA) mesh. The BIO-A ...


Heavy Weight Versus Medium Weight Mesh in Ventral Hernia Repair

Approximately five million laparotomies are performed annually in the United States with upwards of 25% of these patients developing a ventral hernia postoperatively. Despite the prevalence of ventral hernias, the surgical approach to these procedures lacks standardization. In fact, nearly 20%-50% of patients undergoing ventral hernia repair (VHR) will experience ...


Hernia Surgery Urinary Retention

The purpose of this study will be to investigate whether pre-operative treatment with a selective alpha1-adrenoceptor antagonist affects the likelihood of male patients developing post-operative urinary retention following hernia repair surgery. It is also of interest to determine whether or not a well-known urological screening tool, the IPSS, can identify ...
