ConclusionAs PDH can lead to major and life threatening complications, it must remain in our minds as a possible cause of intestinal obstruction.

ConclusionRecent high-level literature recommends the use of mesh repair (flat mesh) in all patients with hernia width  ≥ 1 cm. This evidence is limited to the use of flat mesh through an open approach. While AHSQC surgeons do offer mesh repair in the majority of cases, this is most commonly using a mesh patch, and is selective towards larger hernias and obese patients. Further research is required to evaluat e the safety of mesh patches, and a mesh repair should be offered to a young non-obese healthy patient, as they benefit similarly from the use of mesh.

Publication date: Available online 7 October 2019Source: Urology Case ReportsAuthor(s): Joshua Winston, James Salinas, Fadi NuwayhidAbstract:Inguinal hernias involving the ureter or inguino-scrotal ureters are a rare and infrequently described finding with both clinical and surgical consequence. While the majority are asymptomatic and rarely cause obstructive uropathy our case aptly highlights the risk to a general surgeon prior to an elective hernia repair. A review of the literature outlines a systematic approach of investigation if clinical suspicion of an inguino-scrotal ureter is raised, with careful operative plannin...

Hernia patients had a higher incidence rate and hazard ratio of dementia than those in non ‐hernia group. Advanced age, hypertension, head injury, and stroke were found to be risk factors for dementia. Patients with high socioeconomic status and history of coronary artery disease were unlikely to develop dementia in our cohort study. AbstractObjectiveMatrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) may play a role in the pathophysiology of neurodegenerative disease and hernia formation. This retrospective cohort study was designed to assess whether there is an association between hernia and the risk of dementia.Materials and MethodsPati...

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...

Authors: Zhang M, Ding K Abstract Megacolon is a congenital disorder. Adult congenital megacolon (ACM), also known as adult Hirschsprung's disease, is rare and frequently manifests as constipation. ACM is caused by the absence of ganglion cells in the submucosa or myenteric plexus of the bowel. Most patients undergo treatment of megacolon at a young age, but certain patients cannot be treated until they develop bowel obstruction in adulthood. Bowel obstruction in adults always occurs in complex clinical situations and it is frequently combined with comorbidities, including bowel tumors, volvulus, hernias, hypertens...

CONCLUSIONWe believe that careful preoperative diagnosis and strategy can lead to a good outcome and that the significance of emergency laparoscopic approach without sufficient decompression will keep increasing.
