Dr Jose Bueno will share insights on his latest study: Biosynthetic Resorbable Prosthesis is Useful in Single-Stage Management of Chronic Mesh Infection After Abdominal Wall Hernia Repair

Chronic mesh infection (CMI) is one of the most devastating complications after abdominal wall hernia repair (AWHR). Prosthesis explantation has been recommended when an infection is not resolved through conservative measures. However, the placement of new mesh during explantation has not been universally accepted. There is a high possibility of prosthesis reinfection even with biological scaffolds or permanent synthetic meshes. Consequently, two-stage management has been recommended as the ideal approach. This often results in the need for surgical procedures, such as autologous flap. reconstruction or additional mesh implantation, after the infection has been resolved.

The introduction of biosynthetic resorbable prostheses has led to new approaches and indications in cases of complex hernia repairs in contaminated fields. The use of these types of mesh for AWHR has shown a potential decrease in the hospital budget. The advantages, such as reabsorption after 15–18 months and the acceptable results in patients with risk factors and surgeries classified as Class II/III by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), have led to wider indications for AWHR in contaminated fields. However, for CMI (CDC Class IV), biosynthetic resorbable prostheses have not previously been used in a one-stage treatment approach that involves the simultaneous removal of the infected mesh and placement of the absorbable scaffold.
