  17. 17. Why Mesh? Pathogenesis of Hernia  Defective Collagen  Reduced ratio of type I and type III collagen  Type I: Mature Collagen, strong and normal tissue  Type III: Immature Collagen, weak, in healing wounds  Type I : Type III ratio normally is 4:1  Connective tissue pathology is not only a cause of primary herniation but its presence can prevent cure!  Increased matrix metalloproteinase activity(MMP) ‘Understand the Wound Biology’ A role for the collagen I/III and MMP-1/-13 genes in primary inguinal hernia? Raphael Rosch, Uwe Klinge, Zhongyi Si, Karsten Junge, Bernd Klosterhalfen, and Volker Schumpelick, BMC Med Genet. 2002; 3: 2.
  18. 18. Lichtenstein’s Mesh Repair Tension Free repair •Under LA •Day care •Low recurrence rate!
  19. 19. Billroth’s Vision ‘‘If we could artificially produce tissues of the density and toughness of fascia and tendon the secret of the radical cure of hernia would be discovered’’. - Beitrage zur Chirurgie (1878)

  23. 23. Types of Mesh  Synthetic Mesh  Non absorbable      Polyprophylene(Prolene) Polyethylene(Marlex) Polyester(Dacron) PTFE (Teflon/Gordex) Absorbable  Vicryl  Combined  Vipro  Synthetic with Absorbable Barrier( Dual mesh)    Parietex Proceed Etc  Biological Mesh   Surgisis ( Porcine submucosa) Alloderm (Cadaveric human dermis)
  24. 24. What Mesh Light weight Vs Heavy weight? Light weight Mesh Heavy weight Mesh Definition? Light wt, thin fibres, macro pores (>1.5mm) Less amt of FB Heavy wt, thick fibres, micro pores (< 1.5mm) So more amount of FB Qualities Flexible Less FB reaction and pain Stiffer More FB reaction and pain (Problem of adhesion, fistula) Shrinks more Stronger! - so what Examples Ultrapro, Vipro Marlex, Dacron, PTEF The lightweight and large porous mesh concept for hernia repair. Klosterhalfen B, Junge K, Klinge U. Expert Rev Med Devices. 2005 Jan;2(1):103-17.

Mesh Related Complications…  Infection  Surgeon’s nightmare  Intestinal adhesions  Composite mesh for laparoscopic ventral hernia repair  Bowel obstructions  Erosion of the prosthesis into the adjacent hollow viscus  Contraction of prosthesis  At least 5cm larger than the size of the defect
  40. 40. Prevention of Mesh infection Consider  Patient factors      Smoking DM Obesity Re operation Big incision  Type of Mesh  Macroporous vs microporous  Impregnated mesh  Prophylactic antibiotics  Avoid unplanned enterotomy  Infected field  Absorbable mesh  Biological mesh  Technique  Lap Vs Open  On lay Vs In lay Ventral hernia repair •Risk of infection is 3-10% in Open mesh repair •Risk of infection is < 1% in Lap Mesh repair
  41. 41. Conclusion  Mesh repair of abdominal wall hernia is the Standard of Care.  Composite mesh has to be used for ventral hernia  Avoid Mesh related complications , if possible
