Abstract

Approximately 350,000 ventral hernia repairs are performed in the United States each year. Patients expect fast recovery after laparoscopic ventral hernia repair (LVHR) and undisturbed postoperative quality of life (QOL). We examined the utility of a brief, validated 10-point Linear Analog Self-Assessment coupled with the Visual Analog Scale pain scale to discern risk factors for decreased postoperative QOL. Between January 2011 and May 2013, we prospectively assessed patient-reported outcomes for patients who underwent LVHR. Visual Analog Scale pain scale and Linear Analog Self-Assessment items were recorded preoperatively and postoperatively at four hours, one day, and seven days. Eighteen patients were included, 11 were female (61%) and 8 > 60 years old (44%). Patient-reported fatigue increased clinically and statistically from baseline over time (P = 0.007) as did pain (P < 0.001). There was a statistically significant difference in QOL scores over time by gender with women reporting worse scores than men (P = 0.001). In conclusion, our study detected significant changes from baseline in both fatigue and pain over the seven days after LVHR. Age is associated with postoperative differences in physical well-being. Gender is associated with differences in postoperative course in QOL and physical well-being.
