Hernia related Anatomy in Abdominal Wall Surgery

About this Research Topic

Advances in modern translational, applied anatomy for abdominal wall surgery have improved the efficacy of repairs with overall low recurrence rates and favorable outcomes for patients. Understanding the complex anatomy of the abdominal wall and inguinal canal leads to lower nerve injuries, lower chronic pain and helps to guide abdominal reconstruction techniques resulting from hernia, trauma, previous surgery, infections, or tumor resections.


The goal of this research topic is to address the different important topics in anatomically based abdominal wall surgery and repair such as the inguinal canal (from inside, from outside), fascias, meshes (3D-meshes) and also biomaterials. Especially with regard to the new minimally invasive extraperitoneal techniques for abdominal wall reconstruction, the anatomical aspects are valuable for achieving further improvements. The optimization of minimally invasive approaches should also be mentioned as a further goal in this context. 


The scope of this research topic is to present advances to our readers in applied abdominal wall anatomy and new methods in abdominal wall surgery. We welcome review, original research, metanalysis, and method articles focusing but not limiting to the following:

• Clinical anatomy of the abdominal wall

• Minimal invasive approaches for extraperitoneal abdominal wall repairs 

• Reconstructions using different component separation techniques in complex abdominal wall hernia

• Short and long term outcomes of 3D-meshes in connection with anatomically preformed spaces

• Short and long term outcomes of biomaterials


Keywords: Abdominal Wall Surgery, Hernia, Postoperative Groin Pain, Peripheral Nerves, Hernia Repair


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
