Title: The experience with Mini- or Less-open Sublay operation
Author: Jan DANKO, Marian VIDISCAK

Abstract: INTRODUCTION: The MILOS concept binds the benefit of the sublay mesh augmentation in the way of functional and morphological reconstruction of the abdominal wall without the need to use penetrating fixation elements and with the benefits of minimal surgical access. The transhernial approach is carried out at low cost with standard laparoscopic instruments.
MATERIAL AND METHOD: The authors carried out retrospective analysis of the years 2018–2022. Included are all patients operated by the MILOS concept. The patients have suffered of the midline hernias type M according to European Hernia society, eventually combined with rectus diastasis. Authors present their own experience of this new treatment method. The evaluation of complications was performed.
RESULT: In the observed time we have operated 61 patients. In the years 2018 and 2019 together 35 patients were treated, none in the year of 2020. Because of the COVID plaque was the 2020 “Year of restrictions”. In the year 2021 and first quarter of 2022 we have already cured 26 patients. In this time 2 major complications and 3 minor complications were observed.
Since the 2nd quarter of 2022 we have already upgraded to eMILOS.
CONCLUSION: Our experience with this new hernia repair shows that this treatment possibility is feasible for general use also in small district departments without the need to use of robotic technology. This skill will be necessary for future F.E.B.S AWS (Tab. 2, Fig. 3, Ref. 15). Text in PDF www.elis.sk
