Short-term comparison between preperitoneal and intraperitoneal onlay mesh placement in robotic ventral hernia repair
ConclusionOur data suggest r-IPOM may be associated with increased complication rates in the immediate postoperative period when compared to r-TAPP. However, at 3 months, outcomes are comparable. More investigation is needed in this area, specifically with regards to long-term follow-up and multicenter data, to determine the true value of extra-peritoneal mesh placement.
ConclusionA tailored approach is now employed and seen more so in hernia surgery and this fact is referred to and highlighted in the contemporaneous hernia guidelines published to date. In addition, with the increasing complexity of abdominal wall surgery, the number of procedures actually performed by trainees is no longer considered adequate to overcome any recognized learning curve. Therefore, to supplement general surgery training young surgeons should be offered a clinical fellowship to obtain an additional qualification as an abdominal wall surgeon and thus improve their clinical and operative experience under superv...
Groin hernia repair is the most common elective operation performed worldwide with over 20 million operations per year. The rate of hernia surgery varies from 10 per 10000 people in the United Kingdom to 28 per 10000 people in the United States. Around 5% –15% of hernia patients have incarceration, of which approximately 15% of cases may evolve into bowel necrosis requiring bowel resection. Patients with bowel necrosis have a significantly longer hospitalization and a higher postoperative complications, which varied from 6% to 43%[4–7], with a mortality rate of 1%–7%[4,6].
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]
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]

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.
ConclusionsRobotics-assisted abdominal primary repair of the perineal hernia and overlying mesh placement offered a safe and effective repair of this rare disorder.
CONCLUSION: For the comparison of surgical techniques and outcomes, prospective randomized studies should be designed to standardize broad-based surgical techniques. PMID: 31701494 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSION: Although, the patch itself has tendency to make a dome formation when placed intra-abdominally, a composite polypropylene and ePTFE hernia patch has better outcomes if placed precisely with minimal extra-peritoneal and extensive intra-peritoneal dissection. We assume that inadequate liberation of omental attachments around the defect enhances the prior reported failures of the product. KEY WORDS: Composite mesh, Hernia, Ventralex patch.

CONCLUSIONLaparoscopic plug removal for nociceptive pain due to a plug meshoma is effective. However, since there is insufficient evidence to recommend mesh removal without triple neurectomy, informed consent and further consideration of techniques and diagnostic methods are needed.
