Purpose: To investigate the safety and outcomes of laparoscopic control of intraperitoneal mesh positioning in open umbilical hernia repair.Methods: This study is a retrospective review of a series of adult patients with uncomplicated umbilical hernia who underwent elective open repair with a self-expanding patch with laparoscopic control from March 2011 to December 2018. The adequacy of mesh positioning was inspected with a 5-mm 30 degrees scope in the left flank. The primary endpoint was recurrence. Secondary endpoints were rate of mesh repositioning, intraoperative complications and time, length of stay and postoperative pain.Results: Thirty-five patients underwent open inlay repair of primary umbilical hernia with laparoscopic control. Six patients (17.1%) were obese. The mean operating time was 63.3 min. The mean defect size was 2.6 cm (0.6-5) and the mean mesh overlap was 3.2cm (2.2-4.5). There were no intraoperative complications. Laparoscopic control required mesh repositioning in 5 cases (14.3%). The median length of stay was 2 days. Perioperative complications were recorded in three cases (8.6%): one seroma and two serous wound discharge (Clavien-Dindo I). The recurrence rate was 2.9% (1 case) at a median follow-up of 60 months. B/VII>30 was associated with a higher rate of intraoperative mesh repositioning (p=0.001). Non-reabsorbable mesh and COPD were associated with a higher incidence of postoperative complications (p=0.043). Postoperative pain scores were consistently at mild levels, with no statistically significant differences between patients who had their mesh repositioned and those who had not.Conclusions: Laparoscopic control of mesh positioning is a safe addition to open inlay umbilical hernia repair and enables the accurate verification of correct mesh deployment with low complication and recurrence rates.

Abstract

Purpose: To investigate the safety and outcomes of laparoscopic control of intraperitoneal mesh positioning in open umbilical hernia repair.Methods: This study is a retrospective review of a series of adult patients with uncomplicated umbilical hernia who underwent elective open repair with a self-expanding patch with laparoscopic control from March 2011 to December 2018. The adequacy of mesh positioning was inspected with a 5-mm 30 degrees scope in the left flank. The primary endpoint was recurrence. Secondary endpoints were rate of mesh repositioning, intraoperative complications and time, length of stay and postoperative pain.Results: Thirty-five patients underwent open inlay repair of primary umbilical hernia with laparoscopic control. Six patients (17.1%) were obese. The mean operating time was 63.3 min. The mean defect size was 2.6 cm (0.6-5) and the mean mesh overlap was 3.2cm (2.2-4.5). There were no intraoperative complications. Laparoscopic control required mesh repositioning in 5 cases (14.3%). The median length of stay was 2 days. Perioperative complications were recorded in three cases (8.6%): one seroma and two serous wound discharge (Clavien-Dindo I). The recurrence rate was 2.9% (1 case) at a median follow-up of 60 months. B/VII>30 was associated with a higher rate of intraoperative mesh repositioning (p=0.001). Non-reabsorbable mesh and COPD were associated with a higher incidence of postoperative complications (p=0.043). Postoperative pain scores were consistently at mild levels, with no statistically significant differences between patients who had their mesh repositioned and those who had not.Conclusions: Laparoscopic control of mesh positioning is a safe addition to open inlay umbilical hernia repair and enables the accurate verification of correct mesh deployment with low complication and recurrence rates.
