    Seroma formation has been documented as a common complication in laparoscopic ventral herniorraphy. However, there are no recent studies documenting the incidence of or protective strategies against seroma-related cellulitis. The purpose of this study was to evaluate 65 laparoscopic ventral...

    Background: Reinforcement of inguinal hernia repair with prosthetic mesh is standard practice but can cause considerable pain and stiffness around the groin and affect physical functioning. This has led to various types of mesh being engineered, with a growing interest in lighter-weight mesh....

    Background: Polypropylene meshes are commonly used in laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair, although they may cause complications. In this prospective study, a polyester mesh was compared to a polypropylene mesh. Methods: Transabdominal preperitoneal (TAPP) laparoscopic repair was performed in...

    Introduction: Seroma is a frequent complication of endoscopic totally extraperitoneal (TEP) mesh repair of direct inguinal hernia that may cause discomfort and anxiety. Its volume is proportional to the size of the preperitoneal dead space created after the reduction of the hernia. Attempts to...

    Introduction: Laparoscopic techniques are being used increasingly in the repair of ventral hernias, but different incidences and complications have been described as potential risks of this approach. Seroma formation has been documented as one of the most common complication, although most of...

    Background: Seroma formation is a common problem following axillary dissection. It is probably caused by a local inflammatory response. Local steroids may prevent this problem by inhibiting inflammatory response at the wound site. Methods: This randomized prospective study was undertaken to...

  • Mesh plug repair for paraumbilical hernia. Sinha, S.N.; Keith, T. // Surgeon (Edinburgh University Press);Apr2004, Vol. 2 Issue 2, p99 

    Background: The standard method of repair of paraumbilical hernia (PUH) is by the Mayo technique, using a double-breasted flap of the rectus sheath. The reproducibility of this technique in the hands of others is highly variable. The present study describes and evaluates the application of a...

    Recurrence rates for open repair of ventral/incisonal hernias historically range from 6% for the classic Rives-Stoppa repair to 35–45% for some of the techniques more commonly used in the United States. We report a modification to the classic Rives-Stoppa repair that allows...

    Background: Postoperative seroma formation remains the most frequent complication after full abdominoplasty. This study aimed to evaluate postoperatively the formation of a minor seroma when the superficial fascia is used for preparation. Methods: The study enrolled 50 patients who underwent a...

  • Intra-abdominal giant infected seroma following laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair. Aravind, B.; Cook, A. // Hernia;Oct2015, Vol. 19 Issue 5, p795 

    Seroma formation following open or laparoscopic mesh repair of inguinal hernia is common, albeit with no impact on recovery. One of the possible complication from such a seroma is infection. A patient presented with such an infective complication 6 years following a total extra peritoneal (TEP)...
