NCT ID: NCT01644695 Enrolling by invitation - Recurrent Hernia Clinical Trials

Review of Complex Recurrent Hernia Repair

Start date: October 2011
Phase: N/A
Study type: Observational

Abdominal wall incisional hernia is a common finding in patients who have undergone previous intra-abdominal surgeries. Common methods of abdominal fascial closure include primary closure, mesh inlay versus onlay, with or without component separation. All these methods have been shown to have recurrence rates for hernia between 3%-60% in the literature. The study describes the investigators innovative and preferred method for reconstruction of the abdominal wall as BARS (bony anchoring reinforcement system). This method manages the abdominal fascial integrity to reduce the recurrence of incisional hernia while providing an aesthetically superior abdominal wall contour.
