We report a series of seven patients who presented with anterior vaginal wall “mass” or bulge after cystectomy and were found on magnetic resonance defecography (MRD) to have enteroceles or sigmoidoceles in the anterior rather than posterior compartment. MRD was instrumental for diagnoses in these patients and to exclude local recurrence of bladder malignancy. We also report five additional patients that were found to have bowel herniation anterior to the vaginal apex, but without history of cystectomy.

Conclusion Inguinal herniation of the transplant ureter leading to ureteral obstruction is a rare, probably underreported, cause graft of dysfunction. Therefore, we advocate elective repair of inguinal or incisional hernias in renal transplant recipients. PMID: 31690216 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ABSTRACT The anti-M üllerian hormone triggers the regression of uterus and fallopian tubes in male embryos; if there are problems in the synthesis or action of this protein, Müllerian structures persist in an otherwise phenotypic male. The most frequent clinical presentation of Persistent Mullerian Duct syndrome is c ryptorchidism and inguinal hernia. The few cases reported in adults are incidental findings or inguinal hernias. However, we present an adult male with history of bilateral cryptorchidism with unsuccessful orchidopexy, who presents with a large abdominal mass with the finding of a seminomatous tumor ...

CONCLUSIONS: Ovarian inguinal hernias should be considered among the differential diagnoses of a groin mass or swelling. In women of reproductive age, repair of the hernia with the intent to preserve fertility is of critical importance. PMID: 31696731 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract Patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) will often require abdominal surgical intervention for indications not directly related to their IBD. Because these patients often have a history of multiple previous abdominal operations and/or ostomies, they are at increased risk for incisional and parastomal hernias. They may also have develop symptomatic cholelithiasis, chronic pain, or desmoid disease. All of these potentially surgical issues may require special consideration in the IBD population.

Conclusions: Using a novel approach, we provide details of the esophageal hiatus in patients with various kinds of hiatal hernia. Impaired LES relaxation in paraesophageal hernia may play a role in its pathophysiology and genesis of symptoms. PMID: 31677612 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionWe strongly recommend employing a combined laparoscopic and thoracoscopic approach for an emergency repair of a tension gastrothorax in a hemodynamically stable patient as, it poses all the advantages of minimal access surgery and is available, at smaller centres, even in an emergency.

DEAR MAYO CLINIC: After a recent CT scan, endoscopy and colonoscopy, I learned that I have a hiatal hernia containing both stomach and colon, and extrinsic stenosis at the splenic flexure. My understanding is that this is rare and that I will need surgery. Will I need to find a surgeon who has seen this [...]
