Meta-analysis and systematic review of the use of a prosthetic mesh for prevention of parastomal hernia. Ann Surg 2021; 274: 20-28.

Authors: Prudhomme M, Fabbro-Peray P, Rullier E, Occean BV, Bertrand MM
All published RCTs were analysed, though there was great heterogeneity in terms of surgical technique, mesh position, and diagnosis of parastomal hernia. There is no evidence yet that mesh should be used routinely.Pubmed Link
