Preaponeurotic endoscopic repair (REPA) of diastasis recti associated or not to midline hernias
ConclusionsDiastasis recti is a common pathology with aesthetic and symptomatic problems. Endoscopic surgery allowed us to resolve the parietal defect with plication of recti and placement of preaponeurotic reinforcement prosthesis, increasing the safety of the repair, without entering the abdominal cavity, with a short hospitalization and no complications or recurrence in 3 years.
Conclusion: The method provides an analytical solution to estimate the surface field intensity depending on the dipole location and orientation with a negligible computational cost. Significance: This efficient algorithm can be incorporated into an inversion algorithm for localization of wireless endoscopy sensors to allow precise targeted treatment.
From every indication of the text storm between reps, this year's NANS is the one **NOT** to miss. It's going to be the duck's nuts!
This week's very cool case was donated by Dr. Mike Feely. We haven't had anything like this one before on the blog!The specimen below was submitted by a young woman who found this " worm " by her arm, right below her mouth, upon waking from a nap. She reported having abdominal pain with associated diarrhea for several weeks prior to presentation, but was otherwise healthy. After being in formalin:Histologic sections (H&E):Identification? Any additional information that you would like?
A new study casts doubt on the popular notion that smoking weed or using CBD may help cancer patients cope with pain.
Researchers at the University of Israel assessed the sleep quality and levels of pain of 128 people over 50 being treated at a specialist clinic.
ConclusionsThe HerniaSurge Group has developed these extensive and inclusive guidelines for the management of adult groin hernia patients. It is hoped that they will lead to better outcomes for groin hernia patients wherever they live. More knowledge, better training, national audit and specialization in groin hernia management will standardize care for these patients, lead to more effective and efficient healthcare and provide direction for future research.
A powerful Instagram post is shedding light on the medical challenges that can follow childbirth and celebrating moms’ scars. Eighteen months ago, Kari Horn gave birth to her son via emergency C-section. Though becoming a parent has been a joyful experience for the Virginia mom, her postpartum journey involved umbilical hernias, more surgery and further complications. While recovering from these complications, Horn posted a striking photo of her abdomen on Instagram to share her story and remind other struggling moms that they are not alone. In the caption, Horn described her photo as one of “the part...
This article looks at the question "why do some women "bounce back" and others don't when it comes to our abs post baby." Both of the following people did not have the abs they wanted despite doing abdominal exercises. Let's take a deeper look into what causes a pooch belly and diastasis (ab separation) and why some people easily have the abs they want! What is a diastasis? Read about it here, including a step by step diastasis check. Subject #1: "Cameron" Cameron came in to see me for hip pain and didn't know about an abdominal separation. After hearing a complaint of occasional recur...
