BACKGROUND: Concomitant incisional and parastomal hernias is a challenging condition. We used a hybrid technique of sublay and onlay to treat patients with this condition.
MATERIAL AND METHODS: The clinical data of 32 consecutive patients treated from February 2008 to April 2014 for concomitant incisional and parastomal hernias were retrospectively reviewed. The mean diameter was 9 (range 4–13) cm of the incisional hernias, and 6 (range 4.5–8) cm of the parastomal hernias.
RESULTS: The mean operative time was 247 (range 220–290) min. The mean hospital stay was 20 (range 14–27) days. All surgical wounds healed by primary intention. Seven patients had postoperative seroma and were well managed with puncture and compression. All 32 patients were followed up for a mean of 48 (range 5–68) months. Four patients recurred with parastomal hernias and were treated with secondary surgery. No further recurrence occurred until the last follow-up.
CONCLUSIONS: This hybrid technique of sublay and onlay is only suitable for the repair of complex incisional and parastomal hernias.
