APSTRACT

Purpose: To investigate short and long-term outcome after the open preperitoneal flat mesh technique (OPFMT) for umbilical, epigastric, spigelian, small incisional and „port-site“ hernia performed as a day case procedure. 

Methods: We retrospectively analyzed records of patients who underwent OPFMT for umbilical, epigastric, Spigelian, small incisional and „port-site“ hernia in ambulatory settings between 2004 and 2020 at Clinical Center of Serbia. Demographic and clinical characteristics, operative data and postoperative complications were compared between the groups. Univariate and multivariate analyses were performed to identify predictive factors for mesh infection and recurrence. 

Results: Overall, 476 patients were divided according to the type of hernia. Early postoperative complications were similar in all study groups. Mesh infection, chronic pain and recurrence were different between groups (p = 0.013, p = 0.019 and p = 0.011, respectively). Overall recurrence rate after OPFMT was 2.5%. Hernia defect, hematoma and length of postoperative stay at the Day Surgery Unit were identified as potential predictors of mesh infection (Odds ratio 6.449, 22.143 and 1.546, respectively; p = 0.027, p = 0.011 and p = 0.038, respectively) while mesh infection was the only potential predictor of recurrence in univariate analysis. Hematoma was an independent predictor of recurrence (Odds ratio 27.068; 95% Confidence interval 2.355-311.073; p = 0.008). 

Conclusion: The OPFMT performed under local anesthesia as a day case procedure is a safe technique associated with favorable long-term outcome. Hematoma is an independent predictor of mesh infection occurrence.

APSTRAKT

Background: The aims of this study were to present the concept of original technique in the management of major incisional subcostal hernias and to evaluate short- and long-term outcome.

Method: Between January 2010 and January 2020, 280 patients underwent hernia repair surgery for incisional lateral abdominal hernia at Clinic for Digestive Surgery, Clinical Center of Serbia. Among them, 37 patients underwent the modified sublay technique for major incisional subcostal hernia with minimal hernia defect surface of 100 cm2 or greater or minimal hernia defect width or height of 10 cm or greater. The operative techniques are as follows: retromuscular dissection of rectus muscle from posterior sheath on the both sides of hernia defect, external oblique muscle dissection from internal oblique muscle in a circle around hernia defect at the side of the hernia defect, complete reconstruction of the posterior myofascial layer, large heavyweight polypropylene mesh placement in a sublay position, and complete or partial reconstruction of anterior myofascial layer.

Results: A median (range) hernia defect surface was 150 (100-500) cm2. A median operative time was 130 (90-330) minutes. The morbidity rate was 18.9%. A median (range) postoperative hospital stay was 7 (2-24) days. After the median follow-up of 50 (1-108) months, 2 patients (5.4%) developed recurrent hernia.

Conclusions: The modified sublay technique using large heavyweight polypropylene mesh provides good results in the management of major subcostal abdominal wall defects.
