Ahvaz Jundishapur University of Medical Sciences, Department of Pediatric Surgery, Imam Khomeini Hospital, Ahvaz, Khouzestan, Iran.

Background: Inguinal herniotomy is the most common surgery performed by pediatric surgeons.

Aim: To compare the results and complications between two conventional methods of pediatric inguinal herniotomy with and without incising external oblique aponeurosis in terms of recurrence of hernia and other complications.

Methods: This one blinded clinical trial study was conducted on 800 patients with indirect inguinal hernia. Inclusion criterion was children with inguinal hernia. The first group underwent herniotomy without incising external oblique aponeurosis and second group herniotomy with incising external oblique aponeurosis. Recurrence of hernia and other complications including ileoinguinal nerve damage, hematoma, testicular atrophy, hydrocele, ischemic orchitis, and testicular ascent were evaluated.

Results: Recurrence and other complications with or without incising external oblique aponeurosis had no significant difference, exception made to hydrocele significantly differed between the two groups, higher in the incision group.

Conclusion: Herniotomy without incising oblique aponeurosis can be appropriate choice and better than herniotomy with incising oblique aponeurosis. Children with inguinal herniotomy can be benefit without incising oblique aponeurosis, instead of more interventional traditional method.

Successful closure of a large abdominal wall defect using endoscopic component separation technique in an infant with a giant ventral hernia after staged surgery for omphalocele.

Surg Case Rep 2021 Jan 6;7(1). Epub 2021 Jan 6.

Department of Pediatric Surgery, Ibaraki Children's Hospital, 3-3-1, Futabadai, Mito, Ibaraki, 311-4145, Japan.

Background: The management of large abdominal wall defects, such as omphalocele or gastroschisis, remains a challenge for pediatric surgeons. Though several techniques have been described to repair those conditions, there is no procedure considered to be the standard worldwide. We report an infant girl with a giant ventral hernia after staged surgery for omphalocele in whom delayed closure of a large abdominal wall defect was performed successfully using "endoscopic component separation technique (ECST)" without serious complications.

An anatomical study of the anterior wall of the hypopharyngeal and the cervical esophageal junction.

Auris Nasus Larynx 2020 Oct 4;47(5):849-855. Epub 2020 May 4.

Department of Clinical Anatomy, Graduate School of Medical and Dental Sciences, Tokyo Medical and Dental University, 1-5-45 Yushima, Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo, Japan. Electronic address:

Objective: The upper esophageal sphincter plays a significant role by forming a physical barrier at the junction of the hypopharynx and the cervical esophagus. As few studies have focused on the ventral aspect of this junction, the contribution of the anterior wall of the cervical esophagus to upper esophageal sphincter function remains unknown. The purpose of this study was to examine the muscle fibers' arrangement at the junction, especially of those forming its anterior wall. Read More
