An Evaluation of Parastomal Hernia Repair Using the Americas Hernia Society Quality Collaborative.

An Evaluation of Parastomal Hernia Repair Using the Americas Hernia Society Quality Collaborative. Am Surg. 2017 Aug 01;83(8):881-886 Authors: Fox SS, Janczyk R, Warren JA, Carbonell AM, Poulose BK, Rosen MJ, Hope WW Abstract The purpose of this review was to evaluate outcomes relating to parastomal hernia repair. Data from the Americas Hernia Society Quality Collaborative were used to identify patients undergoing parastomal hernia repair from 2013 to 2016. Parastomal hernia repairs were compared with other repairs using Pearson's test and Wilcoxon test with a P value

CONCLUSIONLaparoscopic plug removal for nociceptive pain due to a plug meshoma is effective. However, since there is insufficient evidence to recommend mesh removal without triple neurectomy, informed consent and further consideration of techniques and diagnostic methods are needed.

This study aimed to determine patients ’ experiences following inguinal hernia repair at a tertiary hospital and associated cottage hospital in terms of postherniorraphy pain and follow-up.MethodsAfter exclusions, 373 adult patients undergoing inguinal hernia repair at Derriford and Tavistock hospitals during a 1-year period from October 2017 were sent a questionnaire regarding preoperative pain experience, current symptoms, and pain severity at 28  days and other intervals postoperatively. Statistical analysis of responses included unpairedttest to compare means andχ2 test for discrete variables with ap value

Authors: Voeller GR, Chin AK, LeBlanc KA Abstract Laparoscopic ventral hernia repair incorporating a prosthetic mesh underlay, first described in 1993, has demonstrated a lower long-term recurrence rate versus open non-mesh repair. However, over the past 25 years, the laparoscopic approach to ventral/incisional hernias is utilized in only approximately 30% of cases. One of the reasons that prevents it from being utilized more often is the inability to readily, reliably, and easily close the fascial defect. A novel technique has been developed for full-thickness abdominal wall closure in laparoscopic ventral herniop...

To investigate the feasibility, efficacy, and safety of laparoscopic totally extraperitoneal (TEP) repair in patients with inguinal hernia accompanied by liver cirrhosis. Between October 2015 and May 2018, 17 patients with liver cirrhosis who underwent TEP repair were included in this study. The baseline characteristics, perioperative data, and recurrence were retrospectively reviewed. Seventeen patients with a mean duration of 18.23 ± 16.80 months were enrolled. All TEP repairs were successful without conversion to trans-abdominal pre-peritoneal (TAPP) surgery or open repair, but 4 patients had peritoneum rupture...

ConclusionThe E/MILOS concept allows the endoscopically assisted (MILOS) or endoscopic (EMILOS) transhernial minimal invasive sublay mesh repair of primary umbilical and epigastric hernias with or without rectus diastasis with low complication, recurrence, and chronic pain rates.

We are pleased to present this issue of Thoracic Surgery Clinics dedicated to the surgical repair of paraesophageal hernias. Over the decades, our understanding and approach to the management of patients with substantial transhiatal herniation of the stomach and other abdominal viscera into the chest have changed significantly, while simultaneously still adhering to the traditional principles of repair that have stood the test of time. Traditionally approached from the chest by open thoracotomy, abdominal approaches have become the dominant route of repair, with minimally invasive laparoscopic approaches being the route of...

Authors: Sikar HE, Çetin K Abstract Introduction: Recurrent hernias can be treated by laparoscopy without the need for mesh removal. However, shrinkage of the mesh following recurrence affects most of the patients, and leaving a partially floating and rigid foreign body could be discussed. Aim: To compare the outcomes of patients regarding the removal of previous mesh during laparoscopic repair of recurrent abdominal wall hernias. Material and methods: Patients who underwent laparoscopic repair for recurrent ventral hernias between August 2012 and March 2015 were included in the study. The patients w...

In this study, 14% of patients underwent diagnostic laparoscopy, and bowel resection was completed laparoscopically in only 3 patients. Why did they not prefer transabdominal preperitoneal (TAPP) approach in the same session? In addition, although the authors mentioned that “Further current literature consisting of a limited number of highly selected patients and s upporting that emergent groin hernia repair is feasible laparoscopically through both TAPP or totally extraperitoneal approaches have not raised safety concerns” in the Discussion, there are many studies in the literature comparing laparoscopic and c...

Conclusions: Our systematic review suggests that, in experienced hands, safety, feasibility and clinical outcomes of minimally invasive repair of IH in patients previously treated with prostatectomy, are comparable to those patients without previous RP.
