Use of Bioabsorbable Tissue Reinforcement Reduces Incidence of Internal Hernia in Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass Patients.

Am Surg 2018 Nov;84(11):1756-1761

Internal hernias are one of the most devastating late, postsurgical complications associated with laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB). The objective of this study was to determine whether placement of a bioabsorbable tissue matrix in soft tissue defects after gastric bypass resulted in a lower incidence of internal hernia development. Prospective database was used to identify all patients who underwent LRYGB between January 2002 and January 2016. Read More

The role of intraperitoneal ropivacaine in laparoscopic appendicectomy: a prospective, double-blinded randomized control Australian study.

ANZ J Surg 2019 Jan 24;89(1-2):101-105. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

Department of General Surgery, Armadale-Kelmscott Memorial Hospital, Armadale, Western Australia, Australia.

Background: Currently, intraoperative use of local anaesthetic is not routinely given in all laparoscopic appendicectomies. Although its use has been widely studied in laparoscopic hernia repairs, gynaecological laparoscopy and laparoscopic cholecystectomies, there are no published trials of the use of intraperitoneal local anaesthetic during laparoscopic appendicectomy in the Australasian setting. The aim of this study was to determine whether the use of intraperitoneal ropivacaine during laparoscopic appendicectomy will reduce the amount of post-operative opiate analgesia used, abdominal pain, post-operative nausea or vomiting, shoulder tip pain and length of hospital stay.

A Multimodality Navigation System for Endoscopic Fetal Surgery: A Phantom Case Study for Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia.

Surg Innov 2018 Nov 28:1553350618813244. Epub 2018 Nov 28.

2 King's College Hospital, Fetal Medicine Research Institute, London, UK.

This article presents a multi-modality tracking and navigation system achieved by merging optical tracking and ultrasound imaging into a novel navigation software to help in surgical pre-planning and real-time target setting and guidance. Fetal surgeries require extensive experience in coordination of hand-eye-ultrasound-surgical equipment, knowledge, and precise assessment of relative anatomy. While there are navigation systems available for similar constrained working spaces in arthroscopic and cardiovascular procedures, fetal minimally invasive surgery does not yet have a dedicated navigation platform capable of supporting robotic instruments that can be adapted to the set of unique procedures.

Is the Laparoscopic Approach Feasible for Reduction and Herniorrhaphy in Cases of Acutely Incarcerated/Strangulated Groin and Obturator Hernia?: 17-Year Experience from Open to Laparoscopic Approach.

J Laparoendosc Adv Surg Tech A 2018 Oct 27. Epub 2018 Oct 27.

2 Department of Gastrointestinal and Hepato-Biliary-Pancreatic Surgery, Nippon Medical School , Tokyo, Japan .

Purpose: Management strategies for acutely incarcerated/strangulated groin and obturator hernias may differ from institution to institution, although, conventionally, the open approach has been used. Recently, laparoscopic transabdominal preperitoneal (TAPP) repair and totally extraperitoneal (TEP) repair have become commonly used operative procedures for the repair of groin hernias. It is unclear whether laparoscopic reduction and herniorrhaphy can be successfully accomplished in all cases. Read More

Department of Pediatric Surgery, Dayton Children's Hospital/Boonshoft School of Medicine, Wright State University, Dayton, Ohio, USA.

Testicular torsion and acute incarcerated inguinal hernia are both common surgical emergencies in the paediatric population. We present the unusual case of a 16-year-old adolescent boy who presented with both of these conditions concurrently. He had a history of a right inguinal hernia, but ultrasound confirmed a testicular torsion and we employed manual detorsion in the emergency department prior to taking him to the operating room.

Controversies and Techniques in the Repair of Abdominal Wall Hernias.

J Gastrointest Surg 2018 Oct 18. Epub 2018 Oct 18.

Department of Surgery, Section of Minimally Invasive Surgery, Washington University School of Medicine, 660 S Euclid Ave., Box 8109, St. Louis, MO, 63110, USA.

Abdominal wall hernia repair is one of the most common operations done by general surgeons today. Patients with incisional hernias can be extremely challenging to manage due to a number of factors that include obesity, prior hernia repairs, previous mesh placement, loss of domain, and other variables. The approach to patients with incisional hernias has evolved considerably over the last 20 years due to both advances in mesh technology and surgical approaches. Read More
