Am Surg 2018 Oct;84(10):1604-1607

Department of Surgery, Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, Torrance, California, USA.

Historically, hernias were repaired before peritoneal dialysis (PD) catheter placement to obviate hernia complications, or after PD catheter placement once hernias became symptomatic or complicated. The aim of this study was to evaluate the outcomes and safety of combined hernia repair and PD catheter placement (HPD) compared with PD catheter placement alone. Within the NSQIP databases (2005-2014), 4406 patients who underwent PD catheter placement alone and 330 patients who underwent HPD were identified. 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).

Hôpital de la Croix-Rousse, 69004 Lyon, France.

Background: Umbilical necrosis is a well-known complication of abdominoplasty, the risk of this complication can be increased when an associated umbilical hernia requires further dissection in peri-umbilical region, potentially leading to umbilical devascularisation. Multiple minimally invasive open techniques were described to avoid this problem. The combined approach of abdominoplasty with laparoscopic umbilical hernia repair is one promising solution to avoid devascularising the umbilicus. Read More

The primary aim was to assess differences, if any, in recurrence (clinical and reoperation), and secondary aim was to assess differences in infections, seroma formation, hematomas, chronic pain, cosmetic result, and quality of life.

Method:: A systematic review (predefined search strategy) and meta-analyses were conducted based on pre-study strict and well-defined methodology. Read More

Mesh trimming and suture reconstruction for wound dehiscence after huge abdominal intercostal hernia repair: A case report.

Int J Surg Case Rep 2018 22;53:381-385. Epub 2018 Nov 22.

Department of Gastroenterological Surgery II, Hokkaido University Faculty School of Medicine, North 15 West 7, Kita-ku, Sapporo 0608638, Hokkaido, Japan. Electronic address:

Introduction: Abdominal intercostal hernia repair for huge incisional hernia after thoracoabdominal surgery involves a complex anatomical structure. Hence, it is difficult to apply the laparoscopic approach to large hernias in the lateral upper abdomen. Further the optimal approach to mesh exposure without infection after incisional hernia repair is still controversial. Read More

Fetal Surgery and Delayed Cord Clamping: Neonatal Implications.

Authors:
Karen M Frank

Crit Care Nurs Clin North Am 2018 Dec 16;30(4):499-507. Epub 2018 Oct 16.

Department of Nursing, Towson University, LI 322, 8000 York Road, Towson, MD 21252, USA. Electronic address:

Advances made in the last several decades in the care of the fetus and newborn have had a significant impact on morbidity and mortality. Delayed umbilical cord clamping in the preterm newborn results in fewer transfusions for anemia, decreased intraventricular hemorrhage, and decreased necrotizing enterocolitis. Because of advances made in fetal ultrasound diagnosis and technological advances, fetal surgeries to treat congenital diaphragmatic hernia, myelomeningocele, twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome, fetal lower urinary tract obstructions, amniotic band syndrome, and congenital cystic adenoid malformation or congenital pulmonary airway malformations have improved the quality of life and survival for these patients.

Congenital diaphragmatic hernia in newborn infants: Variable endotracheal tube and umbilical venous catheter positions.

Early Hum Dev 2019 01 10;128:12-14. Epub 2018 Nov 10.

Women and Children's Health, School of Life Course Sciences, Faculty of Life Sciences and Medicine, King's College London, UK; MRC-Asthma UK Centre in Allergic Mechanisms of Asthma, King's College London, UK; National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Biomedical Research Centre Based at Guy's and St. Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust and King's College London, UK.

We reviewed the radiographs of 131 infants with congenital diaphragmatic hernia and report that the umbilical venous catheter usually deviates to the ipsilateral and the endotracheal tube to the contralateral side of the defect. The trachea and the umbilical vein, however, can be found on either side of the midline. Read More

Outcomes in omphalocele correlate with size of defect.

J Pediatr Surg 2018 Oct 22. Epub 2018 Oct 22.

Division of Pediatric Surgery, Department of Surgery, University of Florida College of Medicine, Gainesville, FL, USA. Electronic address:

Background: Omphaloceles can be some of the more challenging cases managed by pediatric surgeons. Single center studies have not been meaningful in delineating outcomes due to the length of time required to accumulate a large enough series with historical changes in management negating the results. The purpose of this study was to evaluate factors impacting the morbidity and mortality of neonates with omphaloceles. Read More
