Prenatal diagnosis and management of congenital diaphragmatic hernia.

Best Pract Res Clin Obstet Gynaecol 2019 Jan 5. Epub 2019 Jan 5.

Academic Department of Development and Regeneration, Cluster Woman and Child, Biomedical Sciences, KU Leuven, Belgium; Clinical Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology, KU Leuven, Leuven, Belgium; Institute for Women's Health, University College London, London, UK; European Reference Network on Rare and Inherited Congenital Anomalies "ERNICA". Electronic address:

Congenital diaphragmatic hernia is characterized by failed closure of the diaphragm, thereby allowing abdominal viscera to herniate into the thoracic cavity and subsequently interfering with normal lung development. At birth, pulmonary hypoplasia leads to respiratory insufficiency and persistent pulmonary hypertension (PHT), that is lethal in up to 32% of patients. In isolated cases, the outcome may be predicted prenatally by medical imaging and advanced genetic testing. Read More

Negative pressure therapy in combination with mesh-mediated fascial traction in the treatment of infected pancreatic necrosis. A new therapeutic option.

Cir Cir 2019 ;87(2):219-223

Departamento de Cirugía General y Endoscópica, Hospital Dr. Manuel Gea González.

Background: Acute pancreatitis represents one of the most frequent digestive pathologies worldwide, which can be complicated as an infected necrotizing acute pancreatitis, that may require treatment with necrosectomy and open abdomen with the risk that this leads to the appearance of intestinal fistula and giant incisional hernias difficult to manage.

Clinical Case: A 35-year-old woman underwent laparoscopic cholecystectomy for acute cholecystitis, which was re-admitted due to jaundice and abdominal pain 3 days after her hospital discharge. Diagnostic laparoscopy is performed, where a 3200 cc biliperitoneum secondary to a cystic duct stump leak is located and drained. Read More

Department of Pediatrics, University of Minnesota, 2450 Riverside Ave, East Building, 5th Floor, Minneapolis, MN, 55454, USA.

Purpose Of Review: This review aims to describe the assessment of pulmonary hypertension and ventricular function in neonates with congenital diaphragmatic hernia and the long-term follow-up of their pulmonary vascular disease.

Recent Findings: In 2015, the pediatric pulmonary hypertension guidelines from the American Heart Association and American Thoracic Society suggested class I level of evidence B guidelines for routine evaluation of patients with congenital diaphragmatic hernia, including longitudinal care in an interdisciplinary pulmonary hypertension program and following the recommendations offered for all children with pulmonary hypertension.

The Pediatric Surgical Team: a Model for Increased Surgeon Index Case Exposure.

J Pediatr Surg 2019 Jan 21. Epub 2019 Jan 21.

Kapi'olani Medical Center for Children, 1319 Punahou St., Honolulu, HI, USA 96826.

Background/purpose: High surgical volume for both surgeons and hospital systems has been linked to improved outcomes for many surgical problems, yet case volumes per pediatric surgeon are diminishing nationally in complex pediatric surgery. We therefore sought to review our experience in a geographically isolated setting where a surgical team approach has been used to improve per-surgeon exposure to index pediatric surgical cases.

SYSTEMIZATION OF LAPAROSCOPIC INGUINAL HERNIA REPAIR (TAPP) BASED ON A NEW ANATOMICAL CONCEPT: INVERTED Y AND FIVE TRIANGLES.

Arq Bras Cir Dig 2019 Feb 7;32(1):e1426. Epub 2019 Feb 7.

Department of Surgery, Hospital das Clínicas, Botucatu Medical School, Botucatu, SP, Brazil).

Background: Laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair has been shown to be superior than open repairs with faster return to daily activities and decrease in the occurrence of chronic pain. However, higher direct costs and mandatory use of general anesthesia are arguments against their use. In addition, increased complexity of surgery resulting from an anatomy that is unusual to general surgeons prevents the widespread adoption of laparoscopic approach. Read More

Nationwide Propensity-Score Matched Study of Mesh Versus Suture Repair of Primary Ventral Hernias in Women with a Subsequent Pregnancy.

World J Surg 2019 Feb 12. Epub 2019 Feb 12.

Digestive Disease Center, Bispebjerg Hospital, Bispebjerg Bakke 23, 2400, Copenhagen, NV, Denmark.

Background: Mesh reinforcement is recommended for repair of primary ventral hernias; however, this recommendation does not consider a potential subsequent pregnancy. The aim of this prospective cohort study was to compare mesh and suture repair of a primary ventral hernia in women with a subsequent pregnancy.

Methods: All women of childbearing age who underwent repair of a primary ventral hernia between 2007 and 2014 were identified in the Danish Ventral Hernia Database. Read More

Transnasal stent-assisted targeting technique for percutaneous jejunostomy placement in patients with hiatal hernias.

Abdom Radiol (NY) 2019 Feb 12. Epub 2019 Feb 12.

Division of Interventional Radiology, Department of Radiology, University of California Los Angeles, 757 Westwood Plaza, Los Angeles, CA, 90095, USA.

Purpose: To report the transnasal stent-assisted targeting technique for percutaneous jejunostomy placement in patients with hiatal hernias.

Materials And Methods: Four patients, including three (75%) females and one (25%) male, with mean age of 77.5 years (range 73-78 years), and with a hiatal hernia and intrathoracic stomach precluding gastrostomy placement and loop snare placement into the mid-jejunum underwent the transnasal stent-assisted targeting technique for percutaneous jejunostomy placement.

Laparoscopic Inguinal Hernia Repair Using ProGrip™ Self-Fixating Mesh: Technical Learning Curve and Mid-Term Outcomes.

Surg Technol Int 2019 Feb 11;34. Epub 2019 Feb 11.

Advanced Laparoscopic and Bariatric Surgery Fellowship, Associate Professor of Surgery, Northeast Ohio Medical University, Summa Health, Akron, OH.

Purpose: Self-fixating mesh has been introduced to further improve the quality results already seen with laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair. An observational study was undertaken to evaluate the technical learning curve and mid-term outcomes associated with the use of ProGrip™ (Medtronic, Minneapolis, MN, USA) laparoscopic self-fixating mesh in transabdominal preperitoneal (TAPP) inguinal herniorrhaphy.

Methods: Patients who underwent elective laparoscopic TAPP inguinal herniorrhaphy by a single surgeon using ProGrip™ laparoscopic self-fixating mesh within a one-year period were studied. Read More

Properly Diluted Fat (PDF): An Easy and Safe Approach to Periocular Fat Grafting.

Aesthet Surg J 2019 Feb 12. Epub 2019 Feb 12.

Private practice in Rome, Italy.

Background: The main challenge of periocular fat grafting is the risk of contour irregularities, especially in the lower eyelid. Injection of diluted fat can decrease the likelihood of poor contour.

Objectives: The authors developed a simple method of periocular fat grafting in which the fat was harvested through unconventional cannulas and diluted before the injection to avoid the risk of contour irregularities. Read More

Propensity Score Adjusted Comparison of Pelviperineal Morbidity With and Without Omentoplasty Following Abdominoperineal Resection for Primary Rectal Cancer.

Dis Colon Rectum 2019 Feb 7. Epub 2019 Feb 7.

Background: Abdominoperineal resection is associated with a high incidence of perineal complications, and whether this is reduced by an omentoplasty is still unclear.

Objective: This study aimed to investigate the impact of omentoplasty on pelviperineal morbidity in patients undergoing abdominoperineal resection for rectal cancer.

Design: This was a retrospective comparative cohort study using propensity score analyses to reduce potential confounding. Read More

An Analysis of Early Postoperative Returns after Inguinal Hernia Surgery.

Am Surg 2018 Oct;84(10):1613-1616

Kaiser Permanente, Southern California, Los Angeles, California, USA.

Although inguinal herniorrhaphy is low risk, patients still return to the urgent care or ED. We performed a retrospective study on 19,296 inguinal hernia operations across 14 Southern California Kaiser Permanente medical centers over five years. Unplanned returns within the first postoperative week were evaluated focusing on four potentially avoidable diagnoses (AD): pain, constipation, urinary retention, and nausea/vomiting. Read More
