MEsh FIxation in Laparoendsocopic Repair of Large M3 inguinal hernias: multicenter, double-blinded, randomized controlled trial-study protocol for a MEFI Trial.

Trials 2023 Sep 5;24(1):572. Epub 2023 Sep 5.

General Surgery and Hernia Centre, Swissmed Hospital, Gdańsk, Poland.

Background: International guidelines of groin hernia treatment strongly recommend to fixate the mesh in large M3 medial defects during TAPP/TEP procedures. The main purpose of fixation is to decrease the recurrence rate which is alarmingly high in case of those defects. In 2022, a team consisting of hernia surgeons and scientists from universities of technology conducted an experimental study with the use of 3D groin model to verify the hypothesis that fixation is not necessary in above cases.

Boston Hernia and Pilonidal Center, 20 Walnut Street, Suite 100, Wellesley, MA, 02481, USA.

Introduction: The Lichtenstein repair has been synonymous with "open" inguinal hernia repair (IHR) for 40 years. However, international guidelines have suggested that posterior mesh placement results in advantageous biomechanics and reduced risk of nerve-related chronic pain. Additionally, the use of local anesthetics has been shown to reduce postoperative pain and complication risks. Read More

Ten steps for proper peripheral nerve handling during inguinal hernia surgery.

Hernia 2023 Aug 7. Epub 2023 Aug 7.

The Institute for Reconstructive Surgery, Houston Methodist Hospital, Weill Cornell Medicine, 6560 Fannin, Suite 2200, Scurlock Tower, Houston, TX, 77030, USA.

Introduction: Post-inguinal pain after a hernia surgery is prevalent and can be quite frustrating for the surgeon and patient alike. There are several sources for possible post-operative inguinal pain after a successful hernia repair; however, in the setting where a recurrent inguinal hernia is not present, it is likely related to the nerves in the inguinal canal or pelvis. Chronic inguinal groin pain after hernia repairs have been reported in a high percentage of patients following inguinal hernia surgery despite being one of the most common procedures performed annually in the USA and worldwide.

Comparison of Early Postoperative Outcomes Between Totally Extraperitoneal and Lichtenstein Repair of Inguinal Hernia: A Prospective Randomized Study.

J Laparoendosc Adv Surg Tech A 2023 Aug 3. Epub 2023 Aug 3.

Department of General Surgery, Uskudar University Faculty of Medicine, Memorial Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey.

Surgical repair of inguinal hernia is among the most commonly performed surgical interventions in general surgery clinics, with minimal postoperative complications, less pain, and maximum cosmetic results. The aim of this study is to compare the outcomes of patients who underwent Lichtenstein repair (LR), which is currently the most commonly used open surgical procedure to repair inguinal hernias, and laparoscopic totally extraperitoneal (TEP) repair with regard to postoperative cosmesis, patient satisfaction, pain, and inflammatory response. The study consisted of male patients 18-65 years of age, who were operated for inguinal hernia with two different methods between February 2022 and January 2023 in the general surgery clinic of Elazig Fethi Sekin City Hospital.

Implanting the proximal stump of the nerve in the inguinal fat tissue as an effective technique to avoid inguinal pain after accidental inguinal nerve transection: Case report.

Int J Surg Case Rep 2023 Aug 29;109:108590. Epub 2023 Jul 29.

Magister Clinical Medicine Program, Faculty of Medicine, Universitas Airlangga, Jl. Mayjen Prof. Dr. Moestopo 47, Surabaya 60132, Indonesia.

Introduction: A neuroma can occur after the inguinal nerve is injured by accident during the inguinal repair surgery. The neuroma, formed at the tip of the proximal site of the transected inguinal nerve, promotes the growth of neuroma fascicles and causes a painful/tingling sensation if tapped or pressed on the inguinal area.

Presentation Of Case: To decrease the neuropathic pain caused by accidental transection of the inguinal nerve, the proximal stump of the transected inguinal nerve is implanted into the subcutan fat tissue in the inguinal area through a different opening away from the incision of the external oblique aponeurosis.

Quality of life assessment of patients after removal of late-onset infected mesh following open tension-free inguinal hernioplasty: 3-year follow-up.

Hernia 2023 Aug 1. Epub 2023 Aug 1.

Department of General Surgery, Shaanxi Provincial People's Hospital, Xi'an, China.

Purpose: Open tension-free inguinal hernioplasty is one of the common surgical methods used today to treat inguinal hernias due to its simplicity and low recurrence rate. With the widespread use of tension-free inguinal hernia repair, the number of patients with mesh infections is gradually increasing. However, there is a lack of studies assessing the quality of life of patients after the removal of late-onset infected meshes in open inguinal hernias. Read More

Standardization and learning curve in laparoscopic hernia repair: experience of a high-volume center.

BMC Surg 2023 Jul 28;23(1):212. Epub 2023 Jul 28.

Department of General Surgery, Sesto San Giovanni Hospital, Viale Matteotti, 83, Milan, MI, 20099, Italy.

Purpose: Groin hernias are a common condition that can be treated with various surgical techniques, including open surgery and laparoscopic approaches. Laparoscopic surgery has several advantages but its use is limited due to the complexity of the posterior inguinal region and the need for advanced laparoscopic skills. This paper presents a standardized and systematic approach to trans-abdominal pre-peritoneal (TAPP) groin hernioplasty, which is useful for training young surgeons. Read More
