Endoscopic Diastasis Recti Repair
Rectus abdominis diastasis (or diastasis recti) is mainly an acquired condition with clinically evident separation of the rectus abdominis muscle pillars. The result is a characteristic bulging of the abdominal wall that is sometimes mistaken for a ventral hernia despite the fact that the midline aponeurosis is intact and no hernia defect is present. This condition has no associated mortality or morbidity other than cosmetic concerns.
