Use of commercial mesh for hernia repair in a low resource setting: experience after 500 cases

Abstract Background The use of mesh has revolutionized the management of hernias in many parts of the world. There is, however, limited experience on its use in sub-Saharan Africa. This study describes a single hospital experience after 500 cases of mesh hernia repairs in a sub-Saharan...

An early experience with transversus abdominis release for complex ventral hernias: a retrospective review of 100 cases

Abstract Background Transversus abdominis release (TAR) is a relatively recent surgical technique for ventral hernia repair which allows placement of a large prosthesis in the retro-muscular plane with considerable myofascial medialization. A retrospective review of 100 cases who underwent...

A comparison of robotic mesh repair techniques for primary uncomplicated midline ventral hernias and analysis of risk factors associated with postoperative complications

Abstract Purpose We aim to compare short-term outcomes of robotic intraperitoneal onlay (rIPOM), transabdominal preperitoneal (rTAPP) and retromuscular (rRM) repair for uncomplicated midline primary ventral hernias (PVH) and determine risk factors associated with postoperative complications....
