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

Hernia 2019 Feb 5. 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.

Combined open and laparoscopic approach for repair of flank hernias: technique description and medium-term outcomes of a single surgeon.

Hernia 2019 Jan 30. Epub 2019 Jan 30.

Hernia Center, Hospital Alemão Oswaldo Cruz, R. Treze de Maio, 1815, 01327-001, São Paulo, SP, Brazil.

Purpose: A residual bulge in the lateral abdominal wall is a reason for patient dissatisfaction after flank hernia repair (FHR). We hypothesized that combining a laparoscopically-placed intraperitoneal mesh (IPOM) with onlay hernia repair performed through a small open incision would increase repair durability and decrease such residual bulges. We aim to report our medium-term outcomes with this technique. Read More

Closed-incision negative-pressure therapy decreases complications in ventral hernia repair with concurrent panniculectomy.

Hernia 2018 Dec 17. Epub 2018 Dec 17.

Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, University of Maryland Medical Center, 22 South Greene St., S8D18, 21201, Baltimore, MD, USA.

Purpose: Ventral hernia repair with concurrent panniculectomy (VHR-PAN) is associated with high wound complication rates despite reported increased patient satisfaction. Some surgeons believe negative-pressure therapy after primary closure of the surgical incision (ciNPT) may lower wound complications in high-risk abdominal wounds. This study aims to evaluate if ciNPT improves outcomes in patients undergoing VHR-PAN. Read More

Systematic review of transversus abdominis release in complex abdominal wall reconstruction.

Hernia 2018 Dec 11. Epub 2018 Dec 11.

Department of Surgery, Elkerliek Hospital, Helmond, The Netherlands.

Background: Transversus abdominis release (TAR), as a type of posterior component separation, is a new myofascial release technique in complex ventral hernia repair. TAR preserves rectus muscle innervation, creates an immense retromuscular plane and allows bilaminar ingrowth of the mesh. The place of the TAR within the range of established anterior component separation techniques (CST) is unclear. Read More

Causes of recurrences after open inguinal herniorrhaphy.

Hernia 2018 Dec 5. Epub 2018 Dec 5.

Mayne Medical School, School of Medicine, University of Queensland, Brisbane, QLD, Australia.

Purpose: One of the most important measures of success of open inguinal herniorrhaphy is the incidence of recurrence. Reports suggest that up to 13% of all inguinal hernia repairs worldwide, irrespective of the approach, are repaired for recurrence. The reason as to why inguinal hernias recur is most likely multifactorial. Read More

Hybrid robotic-assisted transversus abdominis release versus open transversus abdominis release: a comparison of short-term outcomes.

Hernia 2018 Nov 19. Epub 2018 Nov 19.

William Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak Michigan, 3601 West 13 Mile Rd, Royal Oak, MI, 48067, USA.

Background: Although the open transversus abdominis release (oTAR) is an effective operation for large ventral hernias, it is historically associated with a relatively long length of stay. Robotic retromuscular transversus abdominis release (rTAR) allows minimally invasive repair of complex ventral hernias with shorter length of stay (LOS) compared to open repairs (TAR), but hybrid robotic TAR (hrTAR), partial open intervention via incision through the overlying hernia sac for fascial closure, may be required to accomplish effective repair of large defects. We compare LOS and short-term outcomes of a cohort of our hrTAR patients to our historical oTAR patients. Read More
