Mesh repair for lateral inguinal hernias: a non-evidence-based practice.

Hernia 2021 May 13. Epub 2021 May 13.

División Cirugía General, Sanatorio Municipal "Dr. Julio Méndez", Sucre 1437, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Introduction: The EHS clinical guidelines recommend the use of mesh to repair symptomatic primary inguinal hernias (PIH) in adult males but, in spite of this, it begs the question as to why there is still place for tissue techniques. Lack of stratification of patients according to risk of recurrence in RCTs might be a cause of results disparity, since medial and mixed are hernias with higher risk of recurrence (HRRH), whereas lateral hernias present a lower risk (LRRH).

Objective: To determine whether the lack of stratification may lead to questionable conclusions regarding the protective effect of mesh techniques and to identify other methodological flaws. Read More

How to do a combined endoscopic and tailored open extraperitoneal approach for large congenital inguinoscrotal hernia.

ANZ J Surg 2021 May 13. Epub 2021 May 13.

Department of General Surgery, Bankstown Lidcombe Hospital, Bankstown, New South Wales, Australia.

Large inguinoscrotal hernias require experienced and skilful laparoscopic hernia surgeons to reap the benefits of laparoscopic versus open surgery. We advocate for an alternative hybrid TEP-open technique that allows tissue extraction away from the groin area, whenever necessary, thus avoiding more painful conventional open herniorrhaphy incision.

An educated guess - Distance estimation by surgeons.

Surg Open Sci 2020 Jul 30;2(3):113-116. Epub 2020 Apr 30.

University of Maryland, Department of Surgery, Baltimore, MD, USA.

Introduction: Estimating distance is a common task in surgery, yet development of distance estimation ability receives little attention in surgical training. Although the Small bites versus large bites for closure of abdominal midline incisions (STITCH) trial reinforced the importance of suture spacing by demonstrating reduced incisional hernia incidence in placement of 5-mm fascial sutures over 1 cm, we hypothesize that neither trainee nor attending surgeons possess the ability to estimate these distances with accuracy.

Methods: We distributed a 4-question distance estimation exercise and a 6-question survey to resident and attending surgeons at a single academic medical center. Read More

Development and Implementation of Preoperative Optimization for High-Risk Patients With Abdominal Wall Hernia.

JAMA Netw Open 2021 May 3;4(5):e216836. Epub 2021 May 3.

Division of Minimally Invasive Surgery, Department of Surgery, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.

Importance: Real-world surgical practice often lags behind the best scientific evidence. For example, although optimizing comorbidities such as smoking and morbid obesity before ventral and incisional hernia repair improves outcomes, as many as 25% of these patients have a high-risk characteristic at the time of surgery. Implementation strategies may effectively increase use of evidence-based practice. Read More
