[New laparoendoscopic and minimally invasive extraperitoneal mesh augmentation techniques for ventral hernia repair].

Authors:
G Köhler

Chirurg 2019 Mar 25. Epub 2019 Mar 25.

Abteilung für Allgemein- und Viszeralchirurgie, Krankenhaus der Barmherzigen Schwestern - Ordensklinikum Linz, Seilerstätte 4, 4010, Linz, Österreich.

In recent years techniques for ventral hernia repair have undergone a dynamic evolution with the development of minimally invasive and laparoendoscopic techniques. Despite the multitude of methods, five main criteria for setting the target have emerged: 1) functional and morphological reconstruction of the abdominal wall, 2) extraperitoneal mesh augmentation, 3) abandonment of penetrating fixation elements, 4) minimal surgical access trauma of the abdominal wall and 5) minimized intraperitoneal dissection that jeopardizes adherent intestinal structures. The mesh position varies between preperitoneal retromuscular and supraneurotic or preaponeurotic on the anterior rectus sheath. Read More

Ultrasound-guided transverse abdominis plane block for ED appendicitis pain control.

Am J Emerg Med 2019 Apr 26;37(4):740-743. Epub 2019 Jan 26.

Department of Emergency Medicine/Alameda County Medical Center, Highland General Hospital, Oakland, CA 94602-1018, USA.

The ultrasound-guided transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block or TAP block is a well-established regional anesthetic block used by anesthesiologists for peri-operative pain control of the anterior abdominal wall. Multiple studies have demonstrated its utility to control pain for a range of procedures from inguinal hernia repair, laparoscopic cholecystectomies to cesarean sections [1-3]. There are no cases describing the efficacy of the ultrasound-guided TAP block in the emergency department as a part of a multimodal pain pathway for patients diagnosed with acute appendicitis.
