Enhanced recovery pathway for complex abdominal wall reconstruction

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Ventral hernia repair with abdominal wall reconstruction can be a challenging endeavor, as patients commonly present not only with complex and recurrent hernias but also often with comorbidities that increase the risk of postoperative complications including wound morbidity and hernia recurrence, among other risks. By optimizing patient comorbidities in the preoperative setting and managing postoperative care in a regimented fashion, enhanced recovery after surgery pathways allow for a systematic approach to reduce complications and speed up recovery following ventral hernia repair.
