    Nonmidline incisional hernia is a surgical problem of major interest, but to date, little information on this problem is available. This study aimed to analyze the results of nonmidline laparoscopic incisional hernioplasty in a multidisciplinary abdominal wall unit over the past 10 years. This...

    The reconstruction of massive midline abdominal wall defects as a result of intra-abdominal catastrophes has long challenged the reconstructive surgeon. Previously, the lack of autogenous tissue often forced the surgeon to resort to synthetic materials, which may be complicated by adhesions,...

    Iatrogenic biliary injury is the most significant complication after laparoscopic cholecystectomy. We present our experience with an alternative diagnostic approach using transcatheter cholangiography (TCC) through a Jackson-Pratt (JP) drain and discuss potential benefits and limitations of the...

    This article reports on a study which analyzed the diagnostic delay, frequency and outcome of bile leaks after laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC). Findings revealed that the incidence of bile leaks was 14 of 1,895. It is also noted that bile leaks were more frequently associated with longer...

    Purpose: In a previous study, we have shown that non-cross-linked porcine dermal scaffolds (NCPDS) are a safe and effective alternative to prosthetic mesh in the reconstruction of complicated abdominal wall defects. Here, we report the long-term outcomes of abdominal wall reconstruction using...
