Intraoperative fascial traction (IFT) for treatments of large ventral hernias

Niebuhr, H., Malaibari, Z.O., Köckerling, F. et al.

This study summarises a retrospective analysis of 50 cases treated with IFT. 94 % of the patients had a hernia width above 10 cm (W3 according to EHS). Mean defect size before traction was measured at 16.1 cm intraoperatively.

  • 90% successful closure
  • Low complication rate: 12% postoperative complications whereof 50% didn't need surgical intervention
  • all patients received augmentation in sublay position
  • No cases of abdominal compartment syndrome

Intraoperative Fascial Traction in Robotic Abdominal Wall Surgery; An Early Experience

A. L. A. Bloemendaal

The first article reporting of 3 cases combining robotic ventral hernia repair and  intraoperative fascial traction. A retromusculular hernia repair was performed followed by a transcutaneous IFT.

  • First cases showed promising results
  • IFT is easily combinable with robotic hernia repair
  • IFT facilitates robotic suturing of the hernia defect
  • IFT can potentially be used in robotic repair for very large defects
