(2/4) Mini-abdominoplasty combined with mesh used for abdominal wall endometriosis.

BACKGROUND: Wide excision is considered the treatment of endometriosis. It is difficult to surgeon for reconstruction of a large full-thickness defect through the abdominal-wall. We introduce a method of mini-abdominoplasty combined with mesh that can be used for reconstruction of a large full-thickness defect through the abdominal-wall after wide excision of abdominal wall endometriosis. METHODS: This retrospective study includes a series of patients who underwent wide excision of abdominal wall endometriosis and reconstruction of a large full-thickness defect through the abdominal-wall over a 5-year period. Information obtained from chart reviews includes age, size of lesion and defect, complications and revisions. RESULTS: The method was used for 8 patients including 2 patients with recurrence. The mean size of the masses was (3.5 +/- 2.0) cm. The mean size of the fascia defects was 7.1 cm x 8.6 cm. The mean length of follow-up was (24 +/- 12) months. There was no recurrence, no hernia, and no other complications. The technique generated only a horizontal scar. The scar and contour of the lower abdomen provided a more pleasant appearance than the traditional procedure. CONCLUSIONS: Mini-abdominoplasty combined with mesh is a useful and acceptable reconstruction method for large full-thickness defects through the abdominal wall after endometriosis resection. It is feasible for wide excision with 1 cm normal tissues around the margin. It provides an aesthetically pleasing result.  (+info)
