Abstract: Large umbilical hernias of buffalo calves pose a clinical challenge to the surgeons due to their large sized rings and immense distortion of hernial margins. If not managed timely, the deformity gets even worse because of inadequate tissue at the site to enable a satisfactory closure. In such cases, hernioplasty with implantation of synthetic or animal origin biomaterials is required. In the present study, a biomaterial i.e. bubaline rumen derived extracellular matrix was prepared and evaluated in umbilical hernioplasty in buffalo calves (n=26). The bubaline rumen derived extracellular matrix allowed a tension free repair of hernias and significant reduction in postoperative pain, length of recovery period and recurrence.
