This book provides a useful guide for the management of complex abdominal wall problems from the perspective of a general surgeon, with sensible, practical clinical advice for the management of problems as they arise. Starting from managing the open abdomen and optimising the chances of achieving later definitive fascial closure, through to dealing with incisional and parastomal hernias throughout the abdomen. Expert guidance supported by an evidence-based review of the literature aids higher surgical trainees and consultant general surgeons who wish to expand their practice in this area.

  • Focuses on the needs of the general surgeon
  • Offers practical tips and advice for handling difficult cases
  • Based on current best evidence
  • Complemented by high quality images
