Abdominal Wall Reconstruction and Hernia Repair.

Abdominal wall reconstruction procedures are common. Abdominal wall hernias can occur after abdominal procedures. The components of the abdominal wall can be separated and biologic mesh can be used as a load sharing principle to repair the hernia. Protein intake is important before surgery and after surgery to prevent seroma formation post-surgery. We instruct many of our patients to eat 80- 100 mg of protein before surgery. The prevention of seroma can facilitate healing and make the post-operative course steady.
