Case in brief
Revisional hernia repair with abdominoplasty.
A 33-year-old female presented for elective surgery to correct ventral abdominal hernias and marked laxity of the anterior rectus fascia. The patient’s history included giving birth to twins, significant weight loss of more than 60 pounds, and previous correction of ventral hernia and periumbilical hernia. She was a nonsmoker and in good health.
The surgical plan was to perform a ventral and periumbilical hernia repair, directly followed by fascial plication and abdominoplasty. SERI® Surgical Scaffold would be placed as an overlay for abdominal wall soft tissue reinforcement.
