Physical and mathematical modelling of implant-fascia system in order to improve laparoscopic repair of ventral hernia
This paper describes an investigation of biomechanical behaviour of hernia repair, which is focused on the selection of safe linking of certain type of implant with fascia in laparoscopic operation. The strength of various fixations of the implant to the fascia is analysed. Methods: The research is based on experimental observations of operated hernia model behaviour during a dynamic impulse load corresponding to post-operative...
A PRELIMINARY STUDY ON THE OPTIMAL CHOICE OF AN IMPLANT AND ITS ORIENTATION IN VENTRAL HERNIA REPAIR
This paper addresses the problem of ventral hernia repair. The main goals are to find an optimal surgical mesh for hernia repair and to define its optimal orientation in the abdominal wall to minimise the maximum force at the tissue-implant juncture. The optimal mesh is chosen from a set of orthotropic meshes with different stiffness ratios for typical hernia placement in the abdominal area. The implant is subjected to an anisotropic...
Two-criteria optimisation problem related to laparoscopic ventral hernia repair is formulated in this paper. An optimal implant from a given set and its orientation is sought. The implant is subjected to kinematic extortions due to a patient’s body movement and intra-abdominal pressure. The first criterion of the optimisation problem deals with the reaction force in the implant fastener, while the deflection of the implant constitutes...
