Current status of laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy in the treatment of pelvic organ prolapse.

CONCLUSIONS: Laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy is an adequate strategy that restores anatomy in POP, mainly apical, and function with minimal invasion. Technical development and better knowledge of the female pelvis functional anatomy is enabling today a more precise understanding of its physiopathology, so it facilitates the design of site-specific operations. Various surgical approaches and techniques are offered depending on the defect, where combined procedures give good solutions. It is necessary to have an appropriate surgical training to obtain the better competence, and a safe and correct repair. PMID: 28530619 [PubMed - in process]

Abstract The umbilicus is involved in a wide range of abnormalities in infants and children. The most severe are evident at birth and include exomphalos (omphalocele) and gastroschisis, both of which can be life‚Äźthreatening but are easy to diagnose. Exomphalos is often associated with other congenital abnormalities, whereas the associated problems in gastroschisis are largely confined to the gut. Infection of the umbilicus in the neonate presents as omphalitis. The causes of a moist umbilicus following separation of the umbilical stump are multiple, from the relatively minor umbilical granuloma or ectopic bowel mucosa to...

We report a 69-year-old woman with bilateral diaphragmatic paralysis who underwent a laparoscopic hernia repair and an open laparotomy for reversal of a Hartmann procedure under general anesthesia. Postoperative analgesia was provided by intravenous opioid and epidural local anesthetic and opioid, respectively. The patient’s trachea was successfully extubated at the end of both surgical procedures. Epidural analgesia was associated with better pain control and shorter intensive care unit stay.

Obese patients are often required to lose weight prior to incisional hernia repair as obesity is thought to increase postoperative complications and recurrence rates. The aim of this study was to determine the impact of BMI on the outcome after laparoscopic and open incisional hernia repair.

ConclusionAn evidence-based approach to the diagnosis and management of parastomal hernias reveals the lack of evidence on several topics, which need to be addressed by multicenter trials. Parastomal hernia prevention using a prophylactic mesh for end colostomies reduces parastomal herniation. Clinical outcomes should be audited and adverse events must be reported.

Abstract There has been an overall increase in pelvic organ prolapse due to demographic changes (increased life expectancy). Increasing sociocultural demands of women require treatments that are more effective with methods that are more successful. In the treatment of pelvic floor insufficiency and uterovaginal prolapse, pelvic floor reconstructions with mesh implants have proven to be superior to conventional methods such as the classic colporrhaphy, reconstructions with biomaterial, and native tissue repair in appropriately selected patients and when applying exact operation techniques, especially because of goo...

We present a case of a 78-year-old jaundiced male patient who sustained common hepatic duct injury during laparoscopic cholecystectomy eight months earlier. Exploratory laparotomy, ERCP and MRCP revealed a metal clip placed just below hepatic duct confluence and causing stricture of bile duct with dilatation of bile ducts proximal to the level of stenosis (Strasberg classification type E3 injury). Repair of the injury was performed by creating termino-lateral hepaticojejunostomy between the right and left hepatic ducts and retrocolic Roux en-Y jejunal limb. By presenting this case, we wish to emphasize the importance of ti...

ConclusionPSH repair with 3D funnel mesh in IPOM technique is safe, efficient and easy to perform in laparoscopic and open surgical approaches providing advantageous results compared to other techniques. Furthermore, simultaneous detection and treatment of concomitant incisional hernias has shown favorable. However, the mesh funnel distends and becomes shortened encasing a bulky bowel mesentery and further shrinkage happens eccentric. Changing mesh construction according to lengthening the funnel could possibly lead to reduction in recurrence.

Eur J Pediatr Surg DOI: 10.1055/s-0037-1608675Recurrent pediatric inguinal hernia is relatively rare. In large series, the recurrence rates vary from 0.3 to 1.2%. In a university hospital with surgical service for a wide spectrum of sick pediatric patients, the real recurrence rate may be 3 to 6%. Recurrence manifests typically 6 months after first repair. Current evidence indicates that recurrence rates in open and laparoscopic repair are similar. Laparoscopic repairs are, however, still performed by a minority of skilled pediatric surgeons, whereas the majority of pediatric surgeons rely on open repair not least because ...
