ConclusionExperienced endoscopic laparoscopic hernia surgeons have the same or lower complication rates in TAPP therapy in complex inguinal and femoral hernias as in primary hernias with a high patient satifaction with the outcome of TAPP hernioplasty.

This study evaluates the relationship of PA to outcomes after open ventral hernia repair (OVHR).MethodsA prospective institutional database was queried for patients undergoing OVHR. Demographics, operative characteristics, and outcomes were evaluated by the reported PA and the administration of beta-lactam prophylaxis (BLP).ResultsAllergy histories were reviewed in 1178 patients. PA was reported in 21.6% of patients, with 55.5% reporting rash or hives, 15.0% airway compromise or anaphylaxis, and 29.5% no specific reaction. BLP was administered to 76.3% of patients, including 22.1% of PA patients and 89.9% of patients witho...

ConclusionsThese results indicated that bilateral inguinal hernia repair, preoperative pain, preoperative anxiety, and acute pain at 1  week after the surgery were the independent risk factors for CPSP while low-dose ketamine was the protective factor. These findings may assist with primary prevention by allowing clinicians to screen for individuals with the risk of CPSP.

Conclusion: Our network meta-analysis showed that there were no differences among the TAPP, TEP, and Lichtenstein procedures in terms of safety or effectiveness for treating inguinal hernias. However, TAPP and TEP could decrease the number of return-to-work days. A further study with more focus on this topic for inguinal hernia is suggested.

CONCLUSION: Closure of the fascial defect in laparoscopic umbilical hernia IPOM repair significantly reduced early seroma formation and long-term recurrence without inducing side-effects such as pain, or other early or late PROMs. Registration number: NCT01962480 ( https://www.clinicaltrials.gov).

ConclusionOur study suggests that AF had a significantly improved hernia-specific quality of life in all domains at 30-days postoperatively. We also identified that pain as a binary variable is inadequate for its states purpose. Thus, the overall well-being and morbidity should be taken into account when evaluating hernia patients postoperatively.
