There is also a study investigating preoperative anxiety levels in patients scheduled for stoma surgery and another analyzing modifiable risk factors for parastomal hernia.

There is reemerging evidence in Hungarian as well as international literature for the clinical use in complicated incisional hernias [4-6], this experience has supported the effectivity of autologous dermis graft as reinforcement.
