ConclusionWhile sciatic hernias are rare, lipomatous/ liposarcomatous tumors presenting as sciatic hernias are extremely rare. This case report highlights a combination of rare phenomena. The information presented adds to the current evidence that will guide accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment of future cases.

Pedrosa Coutinho Ledur Scrotal hernias (SH) are common congenital defects in commercial pigs, characterized by the presence of abdominal contents in the scrotal sac, leading to considerable production and animal welfare losses. Since the etiology of SH remains obscure, we aimed to identify the biological and genetic mechanisms involved in its occurrence through the whole transcriptome analysis of SH affected and unaffected pigs’ inguinal rings. From the 22,452 genes annotated in the pig reference genome, 13,498 were expressed in the inguinal canal tissue. Of those, 703 genes were differentially expr...

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.

CONCLUSION: Morgagni hernias are amenable to minimally invasive repair with this simple technique. With large defects, synthetic patches should be used. Recurrences are rare, and morbidity is low. PMID: 31926567 [PubMed - in process]

ConclusionThe use of CST versus No-CST in the repair of large VHs results in an increased risk of wound complications but does not increase the hernia recurrence rate. In the largest QOL comparative study to date, CST ’s generation of myofascial advancement flaps does not negatively impact patient QOL in the repair of large ventral hernias in the short or long term.

AbstractPurposeThere is increasing emphasis on value in health care, defined as quality over cost required to deliver care. We analyzed outcomes and costs of repairing medium-sized ventral hernias to identify whether an open retromuscular or laparoscopic intraperitoneal onlay approach would provide superior value to the patient and healthcare system.MethodsA retrospective analysis of prospectively collected data from the Americas Hernia Society Quality Collaborative was performed for patients undergoing clean, elective repair of ventral hernias between 4 and 8  cm in width at our institution between 4/2013 and 12/2016...
