Inguinal Bladder Hernia: A Case Report and Literature Review

ConclusionWe present a case report of inguinal bladder hernia in a middle-aged man that presented as left lower quadrant pain, groin pain, and dysuria. Diagnosis was confirmed preoperatively with radiographic imaging. The hernia was surgically reduced and the defect repaired without complications.

Conclusions: Similar to previous studies, our results suggest that patients suffering from CLBP differ with regard to the magnitude of mental burden and the presence of physical impairment. These differences ascertain the need for precise targeting of treatment for CLBP. Inpatient pain centers therefore should offer different multimodal therapy pathways and integrate a meaningful triage, taking into account the multifaceted nature of CLBP based on sophisticated knowledge about forms, differences, and relationships among the biopsychosocial components of CLBP.

Publication date: Available online 16 November 2019Source: Life SciencesAuthor(s): Yalda Jahanbani, Soudabe Davaran, Maryam Ghahremani-Nasab, Leili Aghebati-Maleki, Mehdi YousefiAbstractTissue engineering and the use of scaffolds have shown high therapeutic potentialities about male and female infertility. Nowadays, many couples are suffering from infertility problems. There are different causes for infertility including chemotherapy (for male and female), uterine injuries, and intrauterine adhesions. Extra-cellular matrix in tissue engineering provides a supportive medium for blood or lymphatic vessels making it a suitabl...

We examined US sensitivity for diagnosis of HCC in obese patients. Methods: Liver transplant patients data with HCC in explant was used (January 2012-December 2017). All patients underwent liver US within 3 months of diagnosis of HCC. Number/size of HCC lesions were extracted from radiologic and pathologic reports. Obesity was defined as BMI ≥30 kg/m2. Results: One hundred sixteen patients were included. 80% were male, with mean BMI of 31 kg/m2. The most common underlying liver disease was hepatitis C virus (62%). At the time of diagnosis, median number of HCC lesions was 2 (interquartile range [IQR], 1-3), and ...

Post-bariatric, de-novo hiatal hernias are associated with a cluster of symptoms including Bloating (nausea/vomiting), Abdominal pain, Regurgitation, and Food intolerance or dysphagia (BARF). Patients with this cluster are at risk mis-diagnosis, malnutrition and maladaptive eating.

This study aims to describe the clinical experience in terms of efficacy and safety with laparoscopic ventral hernia repair using the ParietexTM Composite mesh (Covidien Sofradim Production, Trevoux, France) in severely obese patients (body mass index ≥35) compared with non-severe obese patients in a seven-year single-center cohort. MATERIAL AND METHODS: All patients with a primary ventral or incisional hernia admitted to our hospital from 2006 until December 2012 who underwent a laparoscopic repair with the Parietex Composite mesh were included in this study. Pain scores using a numeric rating were collected prospe...

Perforated duodenal ulcer after gastric bypass is rare. There have been less than 25 reported cases of duodenal perforation after Gastric bypass. Although most peptic ulcers after gastric bypass surgery occur in the roux limb as marginal ulcers, duodenal ulceration and perforated ulcers in the secretory limb can also present with acute abdominal pain with or without free air in the peritoneal cavity on imaging studies. Laparoscopy is recommended for post gastric bypass patients presenting with acute abdominal signs to rule out internal hernias and other pathology.

Question: A 64-year-old, obese women with a history of schizophrenia and multiple bariatric surgeries had been attending clinics for 4 years for assessment and adjustment of her gastric band. The patient had largely been unsuccessful in losing weight and had remained oscillating around a body mass index of 46 kg/m2. In November 2016, a computed tomography scan revealed 2 hernias, which were to be repaired after further weight loss (Figure A). Two months later, the patient presented to accident and emergency with vomiting and severe abdominal pain.

ConclusionsThe laparoscopic approach to IHR in obese patients has similar outcomes as an open approach with regard to 30-day wound events. Preoperative risk stratification of obese patients is important to determining the appropriate surgical approach to IHR. Further studies are needed to investigate the long-term effects of the open and laparoscopic approaches to IHR in the obese population.

Authors: Muresan M, Muresan S, Bara T, Brinzaniuc K, Sala D, Suciu B, Radu N Abstract AIM: Incisional hernias represent a late onset complication of any type of laparotomy, with a relatively high incidence, and reported in 2% to 11% of all laparotomies. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We performed a prospective longitudinal study that included a total number of 102 patients. The following parameters were monitored: patient history clinical findings, time of hospitalization, laboratory test results, types of surgery. Intra-abdominal pressure variations were measured using a specialized kit. RESULTS: Obesity was presen...
