Special Issue Introduction
Abdominal wall reconstruction has benefited from a number of scientific and technologic advances over the past decade, including improvements in mesh materials, risk-stratification, prehabilitation concepts, enhanced recovery strategies, and evolving surgical techniques. Despite the large volume of literature, several controversies remain, including the type of mesh used, optimal mesh plane, soft tissue management techniques, and strategies for reducing fascial closure tension. This Special Issue will provide an up-to-date summary of these topics and more, written by contemporary experts in the field.
Given the complexity of abdominal wall reconstruction, achieving durable and reproducible results is not easy, requiring a detailed understanding of the anatomy, a command of the current literature, meticulous surgical technique, clinical experience, and sound surgical acumen. To this end, it is our intention that this issue of Plastic and Aesthetic Research will serve as a repository of current, clinically-relevant information regarding abdominal wall reconstruction, benefitting not only our colleagues, but also our patients.
