Study Summary

Fascial closure was not originally a routine component of minimally invasive parastomal hernia repairs, but several recent advancements have made fascial closure more common in this context. These include barbed self-locking sutures that aid intracorporeal fascial closure under tension, and wristed instrumentation offered by the robotic platform when available. The investigator aims to characterize the clinical significance of closing the fascia adjacent to the stoma during a MIS parastomal hernia repair. The investigator hypothesizes that fascial closure will not have a significant impact on postoperative stoma specific quality of life but will reduce long-term recurrence.
