• defect
  • All robotic hernia repairs are performed with sac excision, primary closure of the defect and intra corporeal suturing of mesh to posterior rectus sheath without tackers or transfascial sutures. (sages.org)
  • adhesions
  • 2. I thought to use the .58 modifier for staged or related since he previously saw the hernia but didn't believe that that is what was causing her abd pain, but if the lysis of adhesions didn't work then he would try fixing the hernia at a later time. (aapc.com)
  • I would only charge for the rpr of the incarcerated hernia, not for rpr of the enterotomy, and I would use a -79 since there's no reason to suppose that the hernia became incarcerated because of the prior laparoscopic lysis of adhesions. (aapc.com)
  • incisions
  • Relaxing incisions have been used to decrease suture line tension for primary hernia repairs. (google.com)
  • Laparoscopically means that your healthcare provider will use several small incisions to fix the hernia. (drugs.com)
  • The components separation technique, used to repair these massive hernias, employs bilateral relaxing incisions in the external oblique muscle and fascia in order to approximate the rectus abdominis muscles in the midline. (clinicaltrials.gov)
