Endoscopic technique is a valid and safe approach for the treatment of abdominal wall defects. To combine the advantages of complete endoscopic extraperitoneal surgery with those of sublay mesh repair we propose Totally Endoscopic Sublay Anterior Repair (TESAR) a safe and feasible approach for the treatment of ventral and incisional midline hernias. Methods: From May to November 2018, 12 patients were referred to our unit for clinical and radiological diagnosis of midline ventral or incisional hernia and selected for TESAR. Exclusion criteria were: complicated ventral or incisional hernia (i.e., incarcerated hernia), maximum defect width >7 cm, and contraindications to general anesthesia. Results: All procedures were completed with endoscopic approach, with no conversion to laparoscopy or open surgery. No intraoperative complications were registered. Total mean operative time was 148 ± 18.5 minutes. No postoperative major complications were registered. Only one subcutaneous seroma was registered (8.3%) and treated conservatively. The mean postoperative stay was 2.6 ± 0.6 days. Conclusions: TESAR is a safe and feasible technique for the extraperitoneal sublay repair of ventral hernias with a totally endoscopic approach. It provides accurate hernia repair with good outcomes in terms of resolution of symptoms and postoperative complications.

Abstract

Endoscopic technique is a valid and safe approach for the treatment of abdominal wall defects. To combine the advantages of complete endoscopic extraperitoneal surgery with those of sublay mesh repair we propose Totally Endoscopic Sublay Anterior Repair (TESAR) a safe and feasible approach for the treatment of ventral and incisional midline hernias. Methods: From May to November 2018, 12 patients were referred to our unit for clinical and radiological diagnosis of midline ventral or incisional hernia and selected for TESAR. Exclusion criteria were: complicated ventral or incisional hernia (i.e., incarcerated hernia), maximum defect width >7 cm, and contraindications to general anesthesia. Results: All procedures were completed with endoscopic approach, with no conversion to laparoscopy or open surgery. No intraoperative complications were registered. Total mean operative time was 148 ± 18.5 minutes. No postoperative major complications were registered. Only one subcutaneous seroma was registered (8.3%) and treated conservatively. The mean postoperative stay was 2.6 ± 0.6 days. Conclusions: TESAR is a safe and feasible technique for the extraperitoneal sublay repair of ventral hernias with a totally endoscopic approach. It provides accurate hernia repair with good outcomes in terms of resolution of symptoms and postoperative complications.
