By In Abdominal Wall Reconstruction

Incisional hernia following abdominal surgery is a common complication with a multifactorial etiology and has been defined as “any abdominal wall gap with or without bulge in the area of a postoperative scar perceptible or palpable by clinical examination or imaging.” This broad definition encompasses a range of hernia defect sizes, patients, and clinical situations. Consequently, the differentiation between incisional hernia repair and abdominal wall reconstruction is vague. This chapter covers the perioperative management of patients with incisional herniae, operative strategies for hernia repair, and choice of mesh. Adjuncts for tissue expansion and the management of excess adipose tissue in the most complex cases are also reviewed. No single hernia repair technique is suitable for all patients, and tailored approaches are advocated. Preoperative patient optimization in terms of diabetic control, smoking cessation, and obesity management are associated with significant improvements in recurrence and complication rates and should be considered the most important determinants of a good outcome.
