Abstract

Incisional hernia, or post-laparotomy hernia, is a defect in the abdominal wall, which can produce mechanical and systemic changes in both respiratory and splanchnic circulation. This pathology has an important impact on Health and Society, with an incidence ranging from 2% to 20%, stimulating the improvement or development of surgical techniques, to reduce discomfort and complications, e.g. imprisonment, strangulation and recurrences. The growing availability of prostheses, with greater resistance and lower risk of visceral adhesions, has improved the result and reduced relapses. Over the past 15 years, further improvements have been achieved, thanks to the greater use of laparoscopy, decreasing relapses and complications and improving patient comfort. In this regard, the Ventralight Echo PS prosthesis, introduced for the first time in 2013 and routinely used by our team, have shown encouraging results. In this work, a retrospective study aims to compare in different aspects two groups of patients, suffering from defects on the abdominal wall and undergoing reconstructive surgery with laparoscopic technique. It has been used simple prostheses for the first, whereas the Echo PS~ Positioning System with Ventralight - ST Mesh or Composix - L/P Mesh for the second group. In our experience, we conclude that the use of prostheses, such as the Ventralight Echo PS, in the treatment of incisional hernias, regardless of the location of the defect, is a valid and safe alternative to the use of non-self-expandable prostheses.
