Languages of publication
Parastomal hernias continue to be a significant clinical problem. Use of a synthetic material results in the best results of treatment of this pathology. However, treatment results are still to present 6 cases of late complications of treatment of parastomal hernia using synthetic material, with successful surgical treatment.Material and methods. Among 52 surgical procedures of parastomal hernia repair using a synthetic material, 6 patients underwent late reoperation, including 4 women. Six reoperations were performed due to complications of parastomal hernia repair.Results. All cases of reoperation are presented and discussed in the study in order in which parastomal hernia repair procedures were performed.Conclusions. Presentation of 6 cases of patients treated for complications of the parastomal hernia repair procedure indicates that surgical technique of repair of this pathology is far from being perfect, although there has been a significant progress in this area over the past 20 years.
