Longā€‘term outcomes after contaminated complex abdominal wall reconstruction

Abstract Purpose Complex abdominal wall repair (CAWR) in a contaminated operative field is a challenge. Available literature regarding long-term outcomes of CAWR comprises studies that often have small numbers and heterogeneous patient populations. This study aims to assess long-term outcomes of modified-ventral hernia working group (VHWG) grade 3 repairs. Because the relevance of hernia recurrence …

The development and validation of riskā€‘stratification models for shortā€‘term outcomes following contaminated complex abdominal wall reconstruction

Abstract Background Short-term outcomes for patients undergoing contaminated complex abdominal wall reconstruction (CCAWR), including risk stratification, have not been studied in sufficiently high numbers. This study aims to develop and validate riskstratification models for Clavienā€“Dindo (CD) grade ā‰„ 3 complications in patients undergoing CCAWR. Methods A consecutive cohort of patients who underwent CCAWR in two …

A meta-analysis comparing open anterior component separation with posterior component separation and transversus abdominis release in the repair of midline ventral hernias

Abstract Purpose This study aims to compare the outcomes of posterior component separation and transversus abdominis release (PCSTAR) with the open anterior component separation (OACS) technique. OACS, first described by Ramirez et al. (Plast Reconstr Surg 86(3):519-526, 1990), has become an established technique for local myofascial advancement in abdominal hernia surgery. PCSTAR, described by Novitsky …
