About this Special Issue
Other Surgical Plasties of the Abdominal Wall
(e.g. Chevrel's technique, hernia sac plasty, modifications)
Abdominal wall reconstruction techniques underwent a continuous evolution in the past. Beyond commonly used mesh-based techniques like laparoscopic IPOM, open sublay repair, or the evolving minimally invasive or robotic repairs, there are still some alternative repair techniques that are rarely subjects of debate and scientific evaluation. Also, the role of using the hernia sac as a tissue source for the reconstruction of abdominal wall defects and intestinal coverage is worth to be looked at.
This Special Issue of the Journal of Abdominal Wall Surgery (JAWS) aims to fill the gap and collects articles covering the other surgical plasties of the abdominal wall (e.g. Chevrel's technique, hernia sac plasty, modifications). Thus, the journal calls for case series, reviews/overviews and method descriptions (how I do it) to discuss the variety and evidence of alternative reconstruction techniques.
