surgery for inguinal hernia , surgery for laparocele, Chivasso, Chivasso Hospital, inguinal hernia, abdominal hernia, laparoceleAlready for some months we have introduced, In our hospital in Chivasso, some important technical news in the inguinal and abdominal hernia and laparocele surgery.

Especially with regard to laparoscopic, minimally invasive surgery of abdominal hernia and laparocele, we have introduced, first in Italy, a new technique that allows us not to place nets in contact with the intestinal loops. In fact, it is now increasingly common within scientific societies and specialized websites to report serious complications related to prostheses; in particular, it is now clear that there is no mesh that does not cause the formation of adhesions, and expose the patient to the risk of intestinal injury and occlusive crisis. For this reason, we have begun to place prostheses outside the peritoneum, with a technique known as TAPP (trans abdominal pre peritoneal) and previously used only for inguinal hernias. We have also modified, in suitable cases, the surgical access so that the scars are truly invisible. The following is a video of this new technique.

We also introduced a new and revolutionary surgical technique for the treatment of large abdominal hernias and large laparoceles (i.e., when the defect is greater than 12 cm). This is the anatomical separation of components sec. Carbonell-Bonafé, which was passed on to us precisely by Prof. Fernando Carbonell Tatay of the University of Valencia-currently one of the greatest wall surgeons in Europe.

The technique, as complex as it is effective, involves placing two large nets in the
(behind the rectus abdominis muscles and in the space between the external oblique and internal oblique muscles, to be precise); in cases of loss of right of domicile (i.e., when the abdominal space has shrunk so much that it can no longer accommodate herniated viscera), the use of botulinum toxin infiltrated preoperatively allows a good portion, if not all, of the lost volume to be recovered. Here is a video of the technique, made by our team for a recent scientific meeting of the Sociedad Hispanoamericana de Hernia.

In short, placing these new techniques alongside the already established procedures of hernioplasty according to Trabucco and laparoscopic inguinal hernioplasty, ' inguinal and abdominal hernia surgery in Chivasso becomes increasingly effective, refined, and safe.
