The aim of this study was to identify procedure-specific risk factors independently associated with incisional hernia (IH) and demonstrate the feasibility of preoperative risk stratification through the use of an IH risk calculator app and decision–support interface.
About 90 percent of hernia repair surgeries in the U.S. use hernia mesh. Surgeons in the U.S. use hernia mesh in one million surgeries every year. Mesh can prevent a hernia from recurring. But hernia mesh can also cause serious complications. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration blames recalled meshes for many reports of hernia mesh complications.
An inguinal hernia happens when a weakness in the muscle of the groin allows a section of the intestine to bulge through.
Incisional hernia recurrence after open elective repair: expertise in abdominal wall surgery matters
Recurrence after incisional hernia repair is one of the major problems related with this operation. Our objective is to analyze the influence of abdominal wall surgery expertise in the results of the open elective repair of incisional hernia.
Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is often associated with hiatal hernia (HH). However, the need for fundoplication during hiatal hernia repair (HHR) remains controversial. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of HHR with concomitant laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication (HHR-LNF) in HH patients.
Surgical researchers have developed an online tool to help patients undergoing ventral hernia repair visualize how their results will be affected by factors such as weight gain, smoking cessation, and various surgical techniques.
Biliary colic is severe pain in your upper abdomen caused by a gallbladder problem. Your gallbladder stores bile, which helps break down the fats that you eat.
While the most common cause of gallbladder disease is gallstones (called cholelithiasis), there are a number of other causes, including gallbladder inflammation (called cholecystitis), biliary dyskinesia, functional gallbladder disease, primary sclerosing cholangitis, and gallbladder cancer.
An inguinal hernia happens when a weakness in the muscle of the groin allows a section of the intestine to bulge through. The first sign of an inguinal hernia is usually an unexplained bulge in the groin area. This type of hernia can be present at birth or develop over time.
An extended-release formulation, HTX-011includes the local anesthetic bupivacaine in a fixed-dose combination with the anti-inflammatory meloxicam and is aimed at helping to manage post-operative pain.
