The objective of this study was to verify the relationship between metachronous contralateral inguinal hernia (MCIH) and CPPV, and the risk factors of MCIH.MethodsChildren with unilateral inguinal hernia from three medical centers underwent either open or laparoscopic repairs. Clinical information, including demographics, morphological characteristics of CPPV, follow-up outcomes were collected.ResultsAmong 2942 patients (92.2%) who received open repair with successful follow-up, 185 (6.29%) developed MCIHs [125 (10.9%) on the right side and 60 (3.3%)] on the left including 156 (7.07%) younger than 3 years old and 29 (3.94%...

Conclusion: Our findings show the all-encompassing impact of a CAWH on the life of cancer survivors. They strongly suggest that hernia management should be viewed as an integral part in the continuum of cancer treatment to improve the quality of life of cancer survivors with hernias.

ConclusionTemporary RLV-induced dilation of the deep inguinal ring in pregnancy is not a common precursor for the development of inguinal hernias later in life. All findings support the theory that the hindrance of venous blood flow caused by the gravid uterus is an important contributing factor for RLV in pregnancy, which is self-limited but has a high risk of recurrence and is not an indication for surgery before or after delivery or for cesarean section.

The objective of this report is to describe four cases of robotic repair of MH in adults performed by a single surgeon to better delineate an emerging approach to this rare condition. A retrospective review of patients who underwent robotic repair of MH by a single surgeon was performed. Four consecutive patients were identified and included. The median age of patients was 43 (range: 23 –70). All patients had symptoms prior to diagnosis, including substernal chest pain (n = 3), dyspnea (n = 4), dysphagia (n = 1), and regurgitation (n = 1). All patients underwent...

Conclusion: In this series of 32 cases, laparoscopic cruroplasty with UBM graft reinforcement has been effective and durable at 12 months of followup. This technique may offer one satisfactory solution for large hiatal hernia repair concomitant with laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy that may achieve a durable repair with low GERD symptoms.

Abstract Hernias of pelvic floor are very rare condition, and herniations of ureter into sciatic foramen are extremely rare condition which is globally reported only by 32 cases. Clinical aspects of ureterosciatic hernias appeared variously according to the degree of hydronephrosis, inflammation and infection of kidney due to ureter obstruction. Herein, we report our experience of laparoscopic repair in a patient with ureterosciatic hernia combined urosepsis. PMID: 30882165 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This study examined patient-related outcome measures (PROMs) after repair of ventral primary or incisional hernias using Symbotex ™ composite mesh (SCM), a novel three-dimensional collagen-coated monofilament polyester textile.MethodsPre-operative, peri-operative, and post-operative data were obtained from the French “Club Hernie” registry with 12- and 24-month follow-up.ResultsOne-hundred consecutive patients (mean age 62.0  ± 13.7; 51% female) underwent repair of 105 hernias: primary (39/105, 37.1%, defect area 5.2 ± 5.6 cm2) and incisional (66/105, 62.9%, 31.9 ...
