We present a case of a 60-year-old male patient presented with bilateral inguinal swelling associated with urinary hesitancy and intermittency. He had undergone transabdominal preperitoneal (TAPP) repair for a left inguinal hernia 8 years ago. CT scan confirmed the presence of a bilateral hernia with the bladder herniating bilaterally. He underwent an elective bilateral open Lichtenstein tension-free mesh repair.

ConclusionThe plan of care for patients with acutely symptomatic hernias discharged from the ED depends on outpatient follow-up, but more than 50% of patients are lost to follow-up, and nearly 1 in 5 return to the ED. The uninsured are at particularly high risk.

ConclusionA high number of patients present emergently for groin hernia repair at a county hospital in Guatemala compared to developed countries. Our data suggest that emergent hernias are likely the result of patient-related issues rather than health care system limitations.

AbstractObjectiveIn this systematic review, we evaluated all literature reporting on the surgical treatment of primary epigastric hernias, primarily focusing on studies comparing laparoscopic and open repair, and mesh reinforcement and suture repair.MethodsA literature search was conducted in Embase.com, PubMed and the Cochrane Library up to 24 April 2019. This review explicitly excluded literature on incisional hernias, ventral hernias not otherwise specified, and isolated (para)umbilical hernias. Primary outcome measures of interest were early and late postoperative complications.ResultsWe  obtained a total of ...

AbstractForamen of Winslow hernia (FWH) is an extremely rare entity accounting for up to 8% of internal hernias and 0.08% of all hernias. Only 150 cases of FWH have been described in the literature to date with a peak incidence between the third and sixth decades of life. Three main mechanisms seem to be implicated in the FWH pathogenesis: (a) excessive viscera mobility, (b) abnormal enlargement of the foramen of Winslow, and (c) changes in the intra-abdominal pressure. The presence of an abnormally long bowel, enlargement of the right liver lobe or cholecystectomy, a “wandering cecum,” and defects of the gastr...

CONCLUSIONS: Mesh repair for all hernia types is more common than suture repair. However, for umbilical and other abdominal wall hernias, a significant proportion are repaired without the use of mesh. PMID: 31418302 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Fundoplication is performed routinely during laparoscopic repairs of a paraesophageal hernia, but the degree of fundoplication remains controversial. The purpose of this study is to assess postoperative dysphagia and reflux after a Dor versus a Nissen fundoplication in patients undergoing laparoscopic repair of giant paraesophageal hernias.
