Investigation of abdomen surface deformation due to life excitation: implications for implant selection and orientation in laparoscopic ventral hernia repair
Ventral hernia is a common medical problem. Statistically there are around 10% recurrences of the sickness. The authors' former investigation proved edges of the hernia orifice displacements to be one of the factors causing recurrence. Thus, experimental investigation of the abdomen surface deformation due to some normal activities of people is studied.The extreme strains, their localization and directions are identified. The acquired...
The paper includes a case study of modelling a real historic church using the finite element method (FEM) based on laser scans of its geometry. The main goal of the study was the analysis of the causes of cracking and crushing of masonry walls. An FEM model of the structure has been defined in ABAQUS. A non-linear dynamic explicit analysis with material model including damage plasticity has been performed. A homogenization procedure...
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...
