Abstract

Learning Objectives: After studying this article, the participant should be able to: 1. Describe the anatomy of the anterior abdominal wall, including the neurovasculature and musculofascial layers. 2. List the goals of abdominal wall reconstruction. 3. Discuss the components of the preoperative evaluation of abdominal wall reconstruction. 4. Discuss the considerations in determining immediate versus delayed repair. 5. Be familiar with the following techniques: tissue expansion, vacuum-assisted closure device, abdominal components separation, prosthetic materials, local and distant muscle flaps, free tissue transfer.
