Investigation of abdomen surface deformation due to life excitation: implications for implant selection and orientation in laparoscopic ventral hernia repair

Abstract

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 conclusions may be useful for surgeons in finding practical solutions to dilemmas concerning the choice of an implant (elastic or stiff) for a specific ventral hernia, its proper connection with fascia and orientation in the abdomen.
