Hi Samuel,

I am glad the articles were useful,

With mesh patients I don’t have any particular advice,

If the abdominal wall has been repaired using mesh I use the same technique and thought processes as scanning a native abdominal wall.

So I look for the gap between the rectus abdomens muscles (linea alba) for divarication or hernia. If there is a hernia it means the mesh has failed to prevent it.

I do look at the mesh as you can usually see it and I check around the edges of the mesh for hernia recurrence.

Also check for collections in the post operative phase, they can be serums, haematomas or infections (abscess)
