Secondary Abdominoplasty: Management of the Umbilicus after Prior Stalk Transection.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2019 04;143(4):729e-733e

San Diego, Calif.; Baton Rouge, La.; and New York, N.Y. From the Division of Plastic Surgery, Department of Surgery, University of California San Diego Medical Center; Associates in Plastic Surgery; and Hofstra Northwell Health System, Manhattan Eye, Ear, and Throat Hospital.

Patients with prior umbilical stalk detachment, secondary to limited abdominoplasty or prior umbilical hernia repair, may in the future be candidates for full abdominoplasty. In these patients, a circumferential incision around the umbilicus detaches the remaining cutaneous blood supply, prompting concern for umbilical viability. Minimal literature exists to guide clinical decision-making for these patients. Read More

An evolutionary and developmental biology approach to gastroschisis.

Birth Defects Res 2019 Apr 28;111(6):294-311. Epub 2019 Feb 28.

Division of Medical Genetics, Department of Pediatrics, University of Utah School of Medicine, Salt Lake City, Utah.

Recent advances have now made it possible to speak of gastroschisis narrowly in morphogenetic terms invoking the Rittler-Beaudoin (R-B) model. This proceeds from the appreciation of gastroschisis as a congenital intestinal herniation (without cover or liver) within the primordial umbilical ring, mostly to the right side of a normally formed umbilical cord. Presently, it is unresolved whether this visceral prolapse represents failure of ring closure before return of the physiological hernia into the abdomen or rupture of the delicate amniotic/peritoneal membrane at the ring's edge to the right of the cord.

A rare complication of umbilical venous catheter (UVC) insertion is the extravasation of the infusate into the peritoneal cavity. We report 3 cases of abdominal extravasation of parenteral nutrition (PN) fluid via UVCs. Two of these cases presented as "acute abdomen" which were assumed to be necrotizing enterocolitis clinically; however, during postmortem, PN ascites and liver necrosis were found. Read More

Open mesh versus suture repair of umbilical hernia: Meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials.

Int J Surg 2019 Feb 22;62:62-66. Epub 2019 Jan 22.

Northern General Hospital, Sheffield, United Kingdom. Electronic address:

Background: The optimal methodology of surgical treatment of umbilical hernia in adults remains controversial. Previously published randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and cohort studies have demonstrated advantage for open mesh over suture repair. Two published meta-analyses, including RCTs and retrospective cohort studies, have compared the outcomes of open mesh versus suture repair of umbilical hernia in adult, which were flawed since they included both elective and emergency repairs of umbilical hernias.

Return of the intestinal loop to the abdominal coelom after physiological umbilical herniation in the early fetal period.

J Anat 2019 Apr 25;234(4):456-464. Epub 2019 Jan 25.

Human Health Science, Graduate School of Medicine, Kyoto University, Kyoto, Japan.

The intestine elongates during the early fetal period, herniates into the extraembryonic coelom, and subsequently returns to the abdominal coelom. The manner of herniation is well-known; however, the process by which the intestinal loop returns to the abdomen is not clear. Thus, the present study was designed to document and measure intestinal movements in the early fetal period in three dimensions to elucidate the intestinal loop return process. Read More

1 Department of Surgical Gastroenterology, Command Hospital, Lucknow, India.

Introduction: Creation of pneumoperitoneum and laparoscopic entry into the abdominal cavity are crucial initial steps of laparoscopic surgery and associated with bowel and major vessel injuries. Various methods have been described in literature such as Veress needle, open access technique (OAT), direct trocar insertion (DTI), and optical port. There is no consensus on the safest method of gaining access to the peritoneal cavity to create a pneumoperitoneum. Read More

School of Pharmacy, Master Program in Clinical Pharmacy, College of Pharmacy, Kaohsiung Medical University, Kaohsiung, Taiwan.

BACKGROUND Hepatorenal syndrome (HRS), which is a type of functional renal impairment, is one of the most serious complications in patients with liver cirrhosis. Terlipressin can induce splanchnic vasoconstriction, which increases the renal blood flow and has beneficial effects on HRS. However, terlipressin administration may cause serious ischemic complications such as skin ischemia, peripheral gangrene, and ischemic bowel necrosis. Read More

Endo-laparoscopic reconstruction of the abdominal wall midline with linear stapler, the THT technique. Early results of the first case series.

Ann Med Surg (Lond) 2019 Feb 12;38:1-7. Epub 2018 Dec 12.

General Surgery Division, Cavalese Hospital, Cavalese, Italy.

Background: Midline primary hernias represent one of the most frequent abdominal wall defects in the adult population and in almost half of the cases they are associated with a rectus abdominis diastasis (RAD). Despite the high incidence of these defects there is currently no consensus in the literature on what is the preferred surgical technique for treatment. In this paper we present the first case series treated with an innovative technique that aims to repair the defects of the midline and RAD, while combining the advantages of the sublay Rives-Stoppa technique with those of the minimally-invasive surgery.
