Abstract


The purpose of our study is to evaluate expediency of Platelet-Rich Plasma with self-fixated ProgripTM mesh use in hiatal hernia repair. The study was performed on 144 patients with gastroesophageal reflux with large hiatal hernias (the size of hernias 10-20 cm2 ), who underwent Nissen fundoplication and crurarrhaphia. All patients were divided into two groups: I group (71 patients) - we used non-absorbable self-fixating  ProgripTM mesh for reinforcement of crurarrhaphia, II group (73 patients) – crurarrhaphia was done without mesh. In the patients of I group pieces of mesh were infiltrated by 2-4 ml of autologous PRP. Follow-up was completed in 128 (88,9%) patients with a mean follow-up duration of 39 months (range 12-60 months). There were no serious complications in the patients of both groups. During the 60 months of follow-up, 2 recurrences occurred in the mesh group and 14 recurrences appeared in the non-mesh group (p<0.05). Patient satisfaction was significantly higher in the mesh group (p<0.05). Our study has shown that the collagen content is reduced in patients with large HH. Thus, in such patients it is advisable to use mesh for crural reinforcement. The use of PRP provides a fast ingrowth of mesh, acts as catalyst to increase collagen synthesis and deposition, which promote to reduce the risk of recurrences.
