Abstract

Purpose

Ventral hernias are a common surgical issue and a myriad of surgical mesh designs has been developed for their treatment. Many of these new mesh designs have not been extensively tested and their complications rates are largely unknown. The C-QUR V-Patch Mesh combines a unique knit construction polypropylene mesh with an omega-3 fatty acid coating. There has only previously been one reported study investigating this mesh.

Methods

A multicentre cohort study, with a single surgeon, of 168 consecutive patients with ventral hernias underwent repair using a standardized open pre-peritoneal approach with the novel C-QUR V-Patch Mesh between January 2013 and June 2015. A median follow-up of 37 months was completed to assess the patients for hernia infection and recurrence rates. Mesh infections were further classified into early and late infections for further subgroup analysis.

Results

Infection and recurrence rates of the C-QUR V-Patch® were compared with similar published results of alternate mesh designs. Surgical site infection rates were 7.7% and recurrence rates were 2.4%. The infection rate rose dramatically to 19.0% when the mesh was placed intra-peritoneally. The rate of mesh explantation was 2.4% and usually occurred between 4 and 12 months post-operatively. Smoking was the only factor that appeared to be associated with recurrence.

Conclusion

This series finds that recurrence rates associated with the novel C-QUR V-Patch Mesh is acceptably low; however, infection rates appear to be higher when compared to comparable products for use in ventral hernia repairs.
