Hernia 2020 Jul 7. Epub 2020 Jul 7.

Beverly Hills Hernia Center, 450 N Roxbury Drive #224, Beverly Hills, CA, 90210, USA.

Purpose: The iliopubic tract repair was first introduced by Nyhus in 1959, as an open non-mesh posterior preperitoneal repair for inguinal hernia. We have adapted this repair using a robotic approach to offer a minimally invasive (MIS) non-mesh inguinal hernia repair, termed the robotic iliopubic tract (r-IPT) repair. The aim of this pilot study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of this new technique. Read More

Completely laparoscopic repair for recurrent inguinal hernia that developed after open posterior mesh repair.

Asian J Endosc Surg 2020 Jun 8. Epub 2020 Jun 8.

Department of Surgery, Yokohama Ekisaikai Hospital, Yokohama, Japan.

Surgeons tend to avoid performing completely laparoscopic repair (CLR) for recurrent inguinal hernia (RIH) that developed after the open posterior mesh repair (OPMR). For many, totally extraperitoneal repair or transabdominal preperitoneal repair after OPMR seems difficult because the previously placed mesh may pose an obstacle during the exfoliation of the parietal peritoneum. Moreover, these procedures could cause chronic pain if the "trapezoid of disaster" is injured. Read More
