Rectus sheath closure technique

Simple technique for rectus sheath closure after laparoscopic surgery using straight needles, with review of the literature J Laparoendosc Adv Surg Tech A. 1999 Apr;9(2):205-9. doi: 10.1089/lap.1999.9.205. Authors I K Chatzipapas 1 , R J Hart, A Magos. Affiliation 1 Endoscopy. Incisional hernias can occur at the stoma site following reversal. To minimise the risk of this complication, we have used a technique to close the rectus sheath in two layers. The posterior rectus sheath is sutured intra-abdominally using a continuous looped polydiaxanone suture No studies were found examining suture techniques or materials for closure of the rectus sheath or subcutaneous fat. Implications for practice: Closure of the subcutaneous fat may reduce wound complications but it is unclear to what extent these differences affect the well-being and satisfaction of the women concerned Different techniques and suture materials are used in caesarean section for closure of the rectus sheath (fibrous material enclosing the muscles of the abdominal wall). No research has examined whether any technique for closing the rectus sheath is preferable Another advantage of the current technique is that the point of entry in the rectus sheath is done before the incision is made, hence ensuring that the approximation of all the rectus sheaths and muscles is adequately closed by a single loop suture at the end of the procedure as a single loop suture

The component separation technique is a type of rectus abdominis muscle advancement flap that reconstructs ventral hernia and large abdominal wall defects. Component separation is a fascial release of the external oblique fascia with creation of musculofascial advancement flaps A longitudinal split is made in the rectus sheath. The sheath is elevated from the muscle. At the point of the rectus inscriptions, the sheath is adherent and required dissection with the electrocautery. At the lateral inferior muscle, the thing fascial layer over the deep fat is divided and the muscle is gently retracted medially

Closure of the midline laparotomy wound in cases of peritonitis using the rectus sheath relaxation technique is safe and less painful, provides increased wound elasticity and decreased tension on the suture line, and significantly decreases the incidence of wound dehiscence Component separation techniques allow medial advancement of the rectus abdominis muscle to create a midline tension-free fascial closure. In this case, we describe a posterior component separation with retrorectus mesh placement, also known as a Rives-Stoppa retromuscular repair By this technique the mesh is fixed to the anterior rectus sheath. The procedure is advantageous because it is very simple to perform, but is associated with a high rate (∼15%) of infection of the foreign body.48 The recurrence rate of 15% is an additional disadvantage as opposed to alternative techniques. 48 6.638.

Abstract Background. Gastric perforation is life-threatening and requires urgent surgical treatment with a reliable and durable repair. We describe a novel technique in which a pedicled rectus abdominis muscle and peritoneal (RAMP) pull-in flap is used as an alternative technique for the repair of a large iatrogenic gastric perforation when faced with the inability to use other conventional. A modification of the extraperitoneal colostomy technique is described in this paper that keeps posterior rectal sheath intact instead of having a conventional incision, to further reduce the risk.

Lateral retractors are placed for exposure. F. Inferior retractors placed for exposure. G. Closure midline and inferior rectus To perform this technique in the setting of free TRAM flaps, the segment of rectus muscle not included in the flap requires separation from its posterior sheath to reach the transversalis muscle plane. Although sample size and follow-up are limited, we have found that this technique has several advantages over traditional techniques Component separation involves separating and creating musculofascial advancement flaps to facilitate closure of large midline hernia defects. In one component separation technique, an anterior release mobilizes the entire rectus sheath toward the midline by incising the aponeurosis of the external oblique from the costal margin to the pubis. We describe a laparoscopic surgical technique which achieves harvesting a rectus abdominis muscle flap for perineal closure while it avoids making a large abdominal laparotomy wound. Method : After doing the laparoscopic dissection of the colon and rectum and division of the colon, the right rectus abdominis muscle flap is harvested with the.

Before the closure of the fascia, the rectus muscles and the subfascial tissues are inspected to ensure hemostasis. The rectus muscles can be reapproximated in advance of fascial closure. Some surgeons believe that suturing the muscles reduces the risk of subsequent diastasis recti and decreases the incidence of intra-abdominal adhesion. Technique. To achieve midline fascial closure, especially in larger hernias, Often called the Rives-Stoppa, or retro rectus, repair this procedure involves incision of the posterior rectus sheath on both sides, sewing the posterior rectus sheath together, placing a mesh prosthetic in the retro rectus space, and then closing the. A 5-cm-long transverse incision was made on the anterior abdominal wall, 2 cm above the suprapubic region (3 to 5 cm above the symphysis pubis) and dissected to the rectus sheath. A 10-cm by 2-cm strip of rectus sheath was harvested [Fig. 1]. Each end of the strip was secured with a non-absorbable suture—nylon 2/0 stitches. The two ends of.

The sub-cutaneous tissue was closed with 2-0 polyglycolic acid violet (Vicryl). Skin was closed with either skin staplers or 2- The fused tendons of the lateral muscles form a sheath to surround the rectus muscles, fusing in the midline linea alba. Above the so-called arcuate line the sheath completely surrounds the rectus muscles, but below the arcuate line the posterior sheath is absent, replaced by the transversalis fascia, deep to which is peritoneum 6. Separation of Extenal Oblique from the Internal Oblique Muscle: this plane is avascular: this dissection can be extended all the way upto Mid-Axillary line. This will release the underlying Internal Oblique and Transversus Abdominis Muscle so that the Rectus Muscle, Sheath and the Linea Alba can be pulled towards midline for closure 7 Conclusions: Early fascial closure using the anterior rectus abdominis sheath turnover flap may reduce the need for skin grafting and subsequent abdominal wall reconstruction. This approach can be considered as an alternative technique in the early management of patients with open abdomen

LARGE VARIATION in the distance from skin to the pre-peritoneal nerve plane. The thickness of abdominal wall fat and muscle at the umbilicus varies by over 50mm. 4 Current methods for targeting the posterior rectus sheath are inefficient and dangerous, because they approach the nerves from the anterior wall.

All these modalities have risks and benefits that must be considered when planning post-operative pain management. In our institution we are using rectus sheath catheters placed by the operating surgeon with increasing frequency and have found this to be an efficient and safe technique

Surgery can be performed either by open technique or laparoscopically. Simple closure of defect in the form of herniorrhaphy was recommended by Spangen. 1 According to Nozoe et al., hernioplasty by suturing the internal oblique and transversus muscles to the rectus sheath is an ideal procedure.7 Nowadays in the era of tension free meshplasty linea alba ( anterior and posterior rectus sheath) and realigns the rectus muscles, and places the abdominal wall muscles under the physiological tension needed for optimal function [1, 2].

They performed TAR or only posterior rectus sheath release in relatively smaller hernias and ACST along with posterior rectus sheath release in larger hernias. At the end of 1, 6, and 12 months, there was no difference in CCS pain scores, movement limitation, or mesh sensation among the groups ( P < 0.05) No difference was seen in the risk of wound infection between blunt needles and sharp needles, and no trials were found investigating suture techniques or materials for closure of the rectus sheath or subcutaneous fat. Closure of the subcutaneous fat may reduce wound complications, especially when subcutaneous fat is >2 cm, but further trials. The rectus abdominis can reliably be advanced to allow for a midline abdominal closure. This technique can be used in non-midline hernias, subxiphoid or suprapubic hernias, and in patients who previously had an anterior component separation - patients who previously had few or very difficult reconstructive options layers with catgut for peritoneum and nylon for rectus sheath or sutured with single-layer nylon to the rectus sheath alone.
