Incisional or Ventral Hernia Repair--Bangalore

A hernia occurs when part of an organ(usually the bowel or intestine) protrudes through a weak point or tear in the thin muscular wall that holds the abdominal organs in place.An incisional hernia can develop in the scar tissue around any surgery performed in the abdominal area, from the breastbone down to the groin. 

An incisional hernia usually arises in the abdominal wall where a previous surgical incision was made. This results in a bulge or a tear in the area where the abdominal muscles have weakened. Incisional hernias can increase in size with time.

Incisional hernia repair is a surgical procedure performed to correct an incisional hernia.An incisional hernia, also called a ventral hernia,is a bulge or protrusion that occurs near or directly along a prior abdominal surgical incision.The surgical repair procedure is also known as incisional or ventral herniorrhaphy.Ventral hernia results from a weakness in the musculoaponeurotic layer of the anterior abdominal wall. Almost all type of ventral hernia can be repaired by minimal access surgical approach.

The factors that increase the risk of incisional hernia are conditions that increase strain on the abdominal wall, such as obesity, advanced age, malnutrition, poor metabolism,pregnancy, dialysis, excess fluid retention, and either infection or hematoma (bleeding under the skin) after a prior surgery.

The best surgical approach for Incisional hernia repair is laporoscopic incisional herniorrhaphy, which uses small incisions and a tube-like instrument with a camera attached to its tip.This camera acts as an eye for the doctors for performing an accurate surgery.This minimally invasive laporoscopic surgery reduces the hospital stay,also quicker recovery,reduced wound infection.
