What Is Abdominal Wall Reconstruction? Center

Abdominal wall reconstruction is a surgery involving the reconstruction of the abdominal wall in order to restore anatomy and function. For example, abdominal wall reconstruction can be used to repair a hernia of the front of the abdomen.

The abdominal wall also assists in important body functions such as coughing, urination, and defecation. Read more: What Is Abdominal Wall Reconstruction? Article
