Incisional and Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH): Risk Factors, Management and Outcomes


Roosevelt Collins

Series: New Developments in Medical Research
BISAC: MED031000

Incisional hernia (IH) represents a postoperative abnormal orifice or weakness in the abdominal wall through which normally contained viscera protrude beneath the skin. This book examines the risk factors, prevention methods, and management options for incisional hernias. It also provides a biomolecular basis of IH; discusses the loss of abdominal domain; examines preoperative techniques for the management of giant hernias; studies intraabdominal pressure modification in “component separation” techniques for the repair of incisional hernias; reviews the incidence, and repair of IH after abdominal organ transplantation; and finally, provides an overview of the diagnostic, prognostic and therapeutic implications of right sided congenital diaphragmatic hernias (CDH).
