Primary inguinal hernia: systematic review and Bayesian network meta-analysis comparing open, laparoscopic transabdominal preperitoneal, totally extraperitoneal, and robotic preperitoneal repair
ConclusionsThis study suggests that Open, TAPP, TEP, and rTAPP seem comparable in the short term. The surgical management of inguinal hernia is evolving and the effect of the adoption of innovative minimally invasive techniques should be further investigated in the long term. Ultimately, the choice of the most suitable treatment should be based on individual surgeon expertise and tailored on each patient.
ConclusionThe E/MILOS concept allows the endoscopically assisted (MILOS) or endoscopic (EMILOS) transhernial minimal invasive sublay mesh repair of primary umbilical and epigastric hernias with or without rectus diastasis with low complication, recurrence, and chronic pain rates.
This article describes the role of imaging in diagnosis of complications in general ventral hernia surgery setting.
In this study, we revisited this claim by independently evaluating the proposed marker haplotype using 2 different patient cohorts recruited in different research settings. Meta-analysis of these new postmastectomy cohorts and the original cohort confirmed significant association of the CACNG2 haplotype with PMP. In addition, we tested whether the same markers would predict chronic postsurgical pain in men who underwent surgery for inguinal hernia repair, and whether there is significant genetic association with cutaneous thermal sensitivity in postmastectomy and postherniotomy patients. We found that the biomarker is sele...
ConclusionsThe available data of outcomes of flank hernia repair are not of high quality, and recommendations essentially consist of expert opinions. Operative approach (open vs. laparoscopic) and mesh insertion details have varied, but reasonable results appear possible with a number of techniques.
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.
ConclusionIn this study, we found low rates of recurrence and chronic pain following parastomal hernia repair using intraperitoneal reinforcement with a polyester monofilament composite mesh.
CONCLUSIONS: With comparable operative times, perioperative outcomes, and safety profile, SS-TEP appears to be a safe and effective surgical approach for the management of inguinal hernias in the short term. Furthermore, SS-TEP with a self-fixating mesh is a feasible approach. PMID: 28701857 [PubMed - in process]
DiscussionRefractory GERD can be surgically managed with various techniques. In obese individuals, laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass should be considered due to significant symptom improvement and lower incidence of recurrent symptoms with weight loss. Otherwise, laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication is the preferred surgical technique for treatment of this disease with concomitant hiatal hernia repair when present for either procedure. The short-term risks associated with these procedures include esophageal or gastric injury, pneumothorax, wound infection, and dysphagia. Emerging techniques for treatment of this disease ...
Conclusion Preperitoneal endoscopic approach is the recommended method in confirming the diagnosis and management of occult groin hernias. A sound knowledge of groin anatomy and a thorough preperitoneal inspection of all possible sites for rare groin hernias are needed to diagnose and repair all defects. The preperitoneal mesh repair with adequate overlap of all hernia orifices is the recommended treatment of choice.
Abstract Background By common perspective, it is generally considered that laparoscopic inguinal hernia repairs (LIHR) are comparable to conventional operative methods, as an equivalent treatment methodology in the management of inguinal hernias. The results of current studies, however, favour an LIHR in comparison to an open mesh repair (OMR) in selected patient populations. The advantages of LIHR lie in the clearer view of the spermatic cord contents it offers, and, as a result, it is a safer method in the preservation of testicular function, with fewer incidences of acute and chronic pain, ...
