Aloplasty of lumbar lateral postoperative abdominal hernia (LLPAH), using modified polypropilene mesh, buth this is accompanied by a fairly high freguency of postoperative complications from the postoperative wound. In our view, the use of a nanomodified polypropylene mesh modified by carbon nanotubes and an antiseptic of polyhexamethleneguanidme chloride the results of operative treatment of LLPAH. Aim – to improve the results of surgical treatment of lumbar lateral postoperative abdominal hernia using modified polypropylene mesh. Object and methods. The analysis of surgical treatment of 184 patients with LLPAH of has been performed. Depending on the type of mesh used during surgical treatment, patients were divided into 2 groups. In 92 (50%) of Group I patients using modified polypropilene mesh. In the 2nd group, 92 (50%) patients using classic polypropylene mesh. Results and discussion. Statistically significant results were obtained in patients of Group I compared to Group II: seroma was in 26 (28.3±1.2%) in Group II compared to 6 (6.5±0.6%) in Group I (p<0.05), respectively, the suppuration of the postoperative wound – 12 (13.0±0.4%) to 2 (2.2±0.3%) (p<0.05). The terms of stay of patients of group II on inpatient treatment – 12,1±2,2 days, group II – 7,1±1,3 days. Long-term results: ligature fistulas of the anterior abdominal wall were detected in 4 (5.3±0.4%) patients of group II, in patients of group I of the ligature fistulas were not detected (p<0.05), meshoma – in 3 (3.9±0.2%) of patients in group II, in group I there was no stir (p>0.05). Chronic pain in the abdominal wall in 6-8 months after surgery was observed in 8 (10.5±0.5)% patients in group II and in 2 (2.6±0.3%) group I (p>0.05), recurrences of hernia were found in 8 (10.5±0.5%) patients of group II, in group I – in 1 (1.3±0.3)% (p<0.05). Conclusion. Surgical treatment of LLPAH using modified polypropilene mesh more effective compared with the use of the classical polypropylene mesh, namely, reducing the freguency of seroma from 28.3±1.2% in the II group of patients to 6.5±0.6% in group I, respectively, suppurations of postoperative wounds – from 13.0±0.4% to 2.2±0.3%, inflammatory infiltrates – from 14.1±0.4% to 2.2±0.3%, ligaturial fistulas of the abdominal wall – from 5.3±0.4% to 0%, meshoma – from 3.9±0.2% to 0%, chronic postoperative pain – from 10.5±0.5% to 2.6±0.3%, recurrence of hernia – from 10.5±0.5% to 1.3±0.3%
