Ultrasound detection and closure of contralateral patent processus vaginalis in pediatric patients with unilateral inguinal hernia and hydrocele: a longitudinal study to prove efficacy in avoiding contralateral hernia development.

Authors:
P K F Yip

Hernia 2019 Apr 19. Epub 2019 Apr 19.

Minimally Invasive Paediatric Surgery Centre, Room 1105, 11/F, Nathan Road, Mong Kok, Kowloon, Hong Kong.

Background: Open herniotomy has been the gold standard of pediatric hernia treatment with the advantages of simplicity in surgical technique, fast post operative recovery, and minimal recurrence rate, but its inability to prevent hernia development from a contralateral patent processus vaginalis (PPV) after a unilateral herniotomy is its major drawback. By contrast, laparoscopic hernia repair has the advantage of contralateral internal ring inspection, and, therefore, has become popular in recent years, although open herniotomy is still the favorable surgical technique among many surgeons. A simple and reliable tool to detect contralateral PPV will be valuable to surgeons who practice conventional open hernia surgery on children, although ultrasound has been applied for this purpose, but there is no long-term data to support such application.

An in vitro study on the biocompatibility of fibroblasts in sterile and non-sterile low-cost and commercial meshes.

Hernia 2019 Apr 4. Epub 2019 Apr 4.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University of Rostock, Rostock, Germany.

Introduction: Despite several successful studies with low-cost meshes (LCM) for the treatment of inguinal hernias in India and Africa, a nationwide application has not been possible for a variety of reasons. One problem is the special preparation and sterilization of these meshes-naturally, they should comply with international standards and demands, which is often difficult to achieve in Africa. Our primary approach was to determine whether there are differences in the biocompatibility of fibroblasts between non-sterile and sterile LCMs and commercial meshes (CM). Read More

Simultaneous robotic assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy (RALP) and inguinal herniorrhaphy (IHR): proof-of-concept analysis from a high-volume center.

Hernia 2019 Mar 15. Epub 2019 Mar 15.

Director Endourology and Robotic Fellowship Program, International Robotic Prostatectomy Institute, Larkin University Hospital, Pavilion, 3650 N W 82nd Avenue, Suite 501, Doral, FL, 33166, USA.

Purpose: Inguinal hernia (IH) is detected in approximately 33% of RALP's either pre or intraoperatively wherein all are repaired during RALP to circumvent future herniorrhaphy (Fukuta et al., Urology 68(2):267-271, 2006; Nielsen, Urology 66(5):1034-1037, 2005). Some debate this policy by quoting the potential risk of mesh lying close to the vesicourethral anastomosis leading to infections and adhesions. Read More

Complex abdominal wall reconstruction, harnessing the power of a specialized multidisciplinary team to improve pain and quality of life.

Hernia 2019 Apr 23;23(2):205-215. Epub 2019 Feb 23.

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Dermatology and Plastic Surgery Institute, Cleveland Clinic Foundation, A60 Crile building 9500 Euclid Avenue, Cleveland, OH, 44195, USA.

Introduction: Patients who require highly complex abdominal wall hernia repair with composite soft tissue free flap coverage represent the most challenging population, and the most difficult to definitively treat. For many, this combined procedure represents their last chance to restore any sense of normalcy to their lives. To date, patient reported post-operative outcomes have been limited in the literature, in particular, quality of life has been an under-reported component of successful management. Read More

Department of General Surgery, Comprehensive Hernia Center, Digestive Disease and Surgery Institute, The Cleveland Clinic Foundation, 9500 Euclid Avenue, A-100, Cleveland, OH, 44195, USA.

Background: Incisional hernias (IH) after orthotopic liver transplant (OLT) are challenging due to their concurrent midline and subcostal defects adjacent to bony prominences in the context of lifelong immunosuppression. To date, no studies evaluated the posterior component separation with transversus abdominis release (TAR) to repair complex IH after OLT. We aim to report the outcomes of TAR in this scenario.

Robotic retromuscular ventral hernia repair and transversus abdominis release: short-term outcomes and risk factors associated with perioperative complications.

Hernia 2019 Apr 15;23(2):375-385. Epub 2019 Feb 15.

Good Samaritan Medical Center, Tufts University School of Medicine, One Pear Street, Brockton, MA, 02301, USA.

Background: Retromuscular ventral hernia repairs have become increasingly popular, both with and without transversus abdominis release. We aim to describe our 90-day outcomes in patients who underwent robotic retromuscular ventral hernia repair (RRVHR).

Methods: All patients were subcategorized into those who underwent a TAR (TAR+) as part of their repair, and those who did not (TAR-). Read More

Prolene hernia system versus Lichtenstein repair for inguinal hernia: a meta-analysis.

Hernia 2019 Feb 15. Epub 2019 Feb 15.

Department of General Surgery, Worthing Hospital, Lyndhurst Road, Worthing, BN11 2DH, UK.

Background: Lichtenstein repair is standard practice for inguinal herniorrhaphy, but there is increasing public concern in the use of mesh and postoperative chronic pain. New mesh technology, such as the prolene hernia system, has a preperitoneal component to reinforce the myopectineal orifice aim to reduce the risk of recurrence and chronic pain. This meta-analysis compares outcomes using prolene hernia system versus lichenstein repair for inguinal hernias. Read More

One-year outcome after repair of giant incisional hernia using synthetic mesh or full-thickness skin graft: a randomised controlled trial.

Hernia 2019 Apr 8;23(2):355-361. Epub 2019 Feb 8.

Department of Surgery and Perioperative Sciences, Umeå University, Daniel Naezéns väg, 90185, Umeå, Sweden.

Purpose: Repair of giant incisional hernia often requires complex surgery and the results of conventional methods using synthetic mesh as reinforcement are unsatisfactory, with high recurrence and complication rates. Our hypothesis was that full-thickness skin graft (FTSG) provides an alternative reinforcement material for giant incisional hernia repair and that outcome is improved. The aim of this study was to compare FTSG with conventional materials currently used as reinforcement in the repair of giant incisional hernia. Read More

Intraoperative adjunctive techniques to reduce seroma formation in laparoscopic inguinal hernioplasty: a systematic review.

Authors:
J Li W Gong Q Liu

Hernia 2019 Feb 8. Epub 2019 Feb 8.

Department of General Surgery, Affiliated Zhongda Hospital, Southeast University, Nanjing, 210009, China.

Background: Seroma formation is the most common postoperative complication after laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair. Recurrence and seroma formation may be difficult to distinguish. Many adjunctive techniques with which to reduce the incidence of seroma formation after laparoscopic inguinal repair have been described in the literature; however, the evidence for using intraoperative adjunctive techniques is limited.

Hernioscopy: a reliable method to explore the abdominal cavity in incarcerated or strangulated inguinal hernias spontaneously reduced after general anaesthesia.

Hernia 2019 Apr 5;23(2):403-406. Epub 2019 Feb 5.

East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust, William Harvey Hospital, Ashford, Kent, TN24 0LZ, UK.

Purpose: The diagnosis of bowel or omental ischaemia in strangulated inguinal hernias needs visual exploration of the content of the hernia sac. In some cases, the content of the sac retracts spontaneously into the abdomen at the induction of anaesthesia, so making sure of its viability can be quite difficult. Hernioscopy can allow direct inspection of the whole abdominal cavity and the performance of surgical procedures such as small bowel, large bowel or omental resection, without the need of a formal laparotomy.
