Journal of Long-Term Effects of Medical Implants
Preface: Hernia Surgery: Approaches, Implants, and Fixation Devices
Department of Surgery, University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, Penn Presbyterian Medical Center, Philadelphia, PA, USA
Over 1,000,000 hernias of all types are repaired in the United States each year, and the techniques for repair have evolved, with significant improvements in the last 30 years. Hernias can occur where something either traverses or has previously traversed the abdominal wall or where the abdominal wall has been violated. In general, de novo hernias occur in locations that are potential weaknesses such as the inguinal region, the esophageal hiatus, the umbilicus, and the pelvic floor. Additionally, hernias can also result where the abdominal wall has been opened for an incision or stoma creation. This edition of the Journal of Long-Term Effects of Medical Implants includes articles written by hernia surgery experts and covers the breadth of abdominal wall hernia surgery.
