Diastasis recti associated with midline hernias: Totally subcutaneous video-endoscopic repair

Walter Sebastian Nardi, Guido Luis Busnelli, Ariel Tchercansky, Daniel E Pirchi, Pablo José MedinaJournal of Minimal Access Surgery 2018 14(2):161-163A 63-year-old man with a history of a conventional cholecystectomy was referred to our department for an incisional subcostal hernia and chronic back pain. Physical examination also showed an umbilical hernia and diastasis recti measuring 6 cm that was confirmed with a computed tomography scan. Subcutaneous video-endoscopic repair was done repairing all defects simultaneously.

Authors: Hosokawa T, Suzuki S, Tanami Y, Sato Y, Ko Y, Nomura K, Oguma E, Yamada Y Abstract In contrast to computed tomography, ultrasound can be performed without radiation exposure, repeatedly performed by the patients' bedside. Hence, in this case series, we describe the evaluation of complications including hematoma, superficialsurgical site infection, mediastinitis, and pseudoaneurysm associated mediastinitis using ultrasound in pediatric patients after cardiovascular surgery. To our knowledge, no previous reports have evaluated such complications using ultrasound. Ultrasound may be useful for the early diagno...

Authors: Morisaki T, Fukuhara T, Matsuda E, Moritani S, Miyake N, Koyama S, Fujiwara K, Takeuchi H Abstract Lymphadenopathy is frequently observed in immunoglobulin G4 (IgG4)-related disease in some cases, and such cases are known as IgG4-related lymphadenopathy. The ultrasonography findings associated with IgG4-related lymphadenopathy have not been described in previous reports. Herein, we describe ultrasonography findings in two cases of IgG4-related lymphadenopathy in conjunction with histopathological findings. Combined ultrasound scanning with Doppler examination accurately represented the specific histopathol...

Authors: Gavrila IL, Badea RI, Jude C, Socaciu MA, Comsa M, Badea AF Abstract Abdominal ultrasound (US) performed as a "primary imaging procedure" is an important diagnostic tool in gastroenterol-ogy. Expanding the routine investigation to the lower thoracic region might sometimes accelerate the diagnosis in inconclusive manifestations such as pulmonary pathology.US is a valuable tool in evaluating patients with breathing difficulties, chest pain, hypoxia, or chest trauma. This paper presents the particular situation of a patient hospitalized in the gastroenterology depart-ment, where the US identified si...

Authors: Maconi G, Sousa M Abstract Gastrointestinal ultrasound (GIUS) has been increasingly used for the management of gastrointestinal disorders due to its potentialities as a cheap, widely available and safe examination with comparable accuracy to other techniques such as Computed Tomography or Magnetic Resonance Imaging. However, some limitations have been stated to justify its underuse such as its dependency on the operator, small field of view and penetration and need of expertise. However, most of these limitations are inherent to any technique. The main problems with GIUS are lack of standardized definition...

The location of targeted tumors was within the thorax, abdomen, pelvis, and limbs. A questionnaire containing numerical rate scales (0-10) regarding procedural a...

CONCLUSIONS: In cases of BCCs with thickness of ≤1 mm, there was a high correlation (r=0.870) of the tumor spread depth between micromorphological measurements and the results obtained using a 75 MHz transducer and in cases of BCCs with thickness of>1 mm, a very high correlation (r=0.951) of the tumor spread depth was observed between histomorphometry and30 MHz transducer measurements.

CONCLUSIONS: EUS guided fine needle aspiration/biopsy of focal liver lesions is safe, provides a very high diagnostic accuracy and should not be considered only as a rescue method after failure of percutaneous guided biopsies. PMID: 32096783 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusion: It is important to consider mesh graft migration to viscus as a cause of persistent abdominal pain and bleeding per rectum irrespective of the time of presentation post hernia repair. PMID: 31788028 [PubMed]

ConclusionsThe Rives technique requires a sound knowledge of inguinal preperitoneal space anatomy, but it is an excellent technique for the larger and difficult primary inguinal hernias, giving a low rate of recurrences and chronic pain.

Discussion Varicoceles are caused by high venous back pressure which causes a tortuous dilatation of the testicular veins (pampiniform plexus) of the spermatic cord. They occur more on the left than right because the left renal vein has a higher pressure than the inferior vena cava which drain the left and right gonadal veins respectively. Varicoceles are not very common in young children (3% in
