Inguinal Hernia in Nonhuman Primates: From Asymptomatic to Life-Threatening Events.

Vet Sci 2022 Jun 8;9(6). Epub 2022 Jun 8.

Animal Science Department (ASD), Biomedical Primate Research Centre (BPRC), 2288 GJ Rijswijk, The Netherlands.

In this study, a review of available data and literature on the epidemiology and anamnesis of inguinal hernias in nonhuman primates, as well as on their clinical evaluation and surgical management, was conducted. Inguinal hernias are assumed to be relatively common in male nonhuman primates. Clinical signs are usually limited to a visible or palpable mass in the groin region without pain or systemic illness.

Learning curve analysis using the cumulative summation method for totally extraperitoneal repair of the inguinal hernia.

Langenbecks Arch Surg 2022 Jun 23. Epub 2022 Jun 23.

Department of Surgery, College of Medicine, Bucheon St. Mary's Hospital, The Catholic University of Korea, Seoul, Republic of Korea.

Purpose: The totally extraperitoneal repair (TEP) technique has been widely performed, and compared with open surgery, TEP results in less postoperative pain and similar surgical outcomes in the treatment of inguinal hernias. However, TEP has a longer learning curve than does conventional surgery.

Methods: The data for patients who underwent TEP for inguinal hernias by a single surgeon between April 2017 and July 2019 were analyzed retrospectively. Read More

Contemporary Matched-Cohort Comparison of Surgical Approach to Inguinal Hernia Repair: Are Minimally Invasive Approaches Associated with Higher Rates of Recurrence?

J Am Coll Surg 2022 Jul 15;235(1):119-127. Epub 2022 Apr 15.

From the Department of Surgery (Tonelli, Bunn, Kulshrestha, Cohn, Luchette, Baker), Loyola University Medical Center, Maywood, IL.

Background: Current studies evaluating outcomes for open, laparoscopic, and robotic inguinal hernia repair, in general, include small numbers of robotic cases and are not powered to allow a direct comparison of the 3 approaches to repair.

Study Design: We queried the Veterans Affairs Surgical Quality Improvement Program Database to identify patients undergoing initial elective inguinal hernia repair between 2013 and 2017. Propensity score matching and multivariable logistic regression were used to make risk-adjusted assessments of association between surgical approach and outcome. Read More

[Convalescence after groin hernia surgery].

Rev Med Suisse 2022 Jun;18(786):1205-1207

Service de chirurgie viscérale, Centre hospitalier universitaire vaudois, 1011 Lausanne.

Inguinal hernia repair represents one of the most common operations in general surgery worldwide. It is performed either as open surgery using a transinguinal approach or as minimal invasive procedure using a preperitoneal (endoscopic) or transabdominal (laparoscopic) approach, respectively. A mesh is always placed to reinforce the abdominal wall of the groin. Read More

Round Ligament Management in Female Patients Undergoing Inguinal Hernia Repair: Should We Divide or Preserve?

J Am Coll Surg 2022 Jun 8;234(6):1193-1200. Epub 2022 Apr 8.

From the Department of Surgery, Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, Columbus, OH.

Background: Although inguinal hernia repair in female patients is less common than in male patients, it remains a frequent procedure. The decision to divide or preserve the round ligament has largely been left to surgeon preference, but little data exists about its impact on outcomes. This study aimed to describe current practices for round ligament management and identify the impact of division on surgical and patient-reported outcomes. Read More

Perforated Appendicitis With Migrated Inguinal Mesh Involvement.

Am Surg 2022 Jun 13:31348221084957. Epub 2022 Jun 13.

Department of General Surgery, 440172AdventHealth Orlando University, Orlando, FL, USA.

Mesh-plug hernioplasty has been recognized as a safe and effective surgical repair for primary inguinal hernias and is a common procedure in the United States. Critics of the mesh-plug system describe erosion, migration, and chronic pain as reasons not to employ mesh plugs in primary hernia repair. To our knowledge, mesh graft infection associated with perforated acute appendicitis has been documented only once before in the surgical literature, highlighting an exceedingly rare but possible complication.

Mesh plug erosion into the small intestine after inguinal hernia repair: A case report.

World J Clin Cases 2022 Apr;10(12):3944-3950

Department of General Surgery, the Affiliated Hospital of Hebei University, Baoding 071000, Hebei Province, China.

Background: Mesh plug (MP) erosion into the intra-abdominal organs is a rare but serious long-term complication after inguinal hernia repair (IHR), and may lead to aggravation of symptoms if not treated promptly. It is difficult to diagnose MP erosion as there are no obvious specific clinical manifestations, and surgery is often needed for confirmation. In recent years, with the increased understanding of postoperative complications, MP eroding into the intra-abdominal organs has been a cause for concern among surgeons. Read More

Conversion From Open to Laparoscopic Surgery in Strangulated Hernia Repair: Toward a Gold Option Proposal.

Surg Technol Int 2022 May;40:104-106

Department of Surgery and Medical-Surgical Specialties, University of Catania, Catania, Italy.

Introduction: Strangulation is a common presentation of acute abdominal wall hernias that usually requires emergency surgery. The aim of this report is to propose a "reverse strategy" combining an open mesh-based anterior approach followed by a "conversion" to laparoscopy for the treatment of strangulated hernias.

Comparison of BMI on operative time and complications of robotic inguinal hernia repair at a VA medical center.

Surg Endosc 2022 May 11. Epub 2022 May 11.

Department of Surgery, University of California, Irvine Medical Center, 333 City Bldg. West, Suite 1600, Orange, CA, 92868, USA.

Background: BMI is a risk factor for recurrence and post-operative complications in both open and laparoscopic totally extraperitoneal approach (TEP) repair. Robotic surgery using the transabdominal preperitoneal approach (TAPP) is a safe and viable option for inguinal hernia repair (IHR). The objective of this study is to determine how difference in BMI influences rate of operative time, complications, and rate of recurrence in a robotic TAPP IHR. Read More

Defining Wider Indications for Stoppa Repair Other Than Recurrent Hernias.

Cureus 2022 Mar 31;14(3):e23671. Epub 2022 Mar 31.

Department of Urology, Deccan College of Medical Sciences, Hyderabad, IND.

Managing complex inguinal hernias has been a constant challenge for surgeons and its treatment is not without challenges with the routine current techniques. Complex inguinal hernias especially recurrent have been managed by the Rives-Stoppa technique which is an established suture-less, tension-free, and absolute method of treatment with minimal recurrence rates. Traditionally, this surgical technique is most indicated in recurrent inguinal hernias, but we aim to assess the usefulness of this procedure for the treatment of complex inguinal hernias in individuals presenting for the first time.

Department of Surgery, UMass Medical School - Baystate, Springfield, Massachusetts, USA.

While laparoscopy is now widely accepted for inguinal hernia repair in infants, it traditionally has required general anesthesia. We sought to evaluate the safety of laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair in infants under spinal anesthesia. We performed a retrospective cohort study of all inguinal hernia repairs at a single institution between December 2011 and June 2019 in patients younger than 6 months of age. Read More
