Frequency of inguinal herniotomy in Australia (1998 –2017)

ConclusionThis study suggests that fewer 0 –4-year olds are undergoing inguinal herniotomy, compared with 20 years ago. This is likely due to a change in practice for the management of unilateral symptomatic hernias, from routine bilateral herniotomies, to unilateral surgery. As well as less aggressive surgical intervention for hydroceles in boys.Level of evidenceIII.

Congenital diaphragmatic hernias (CDH) are structural defects associated with significant mortality and morbidity. One-third are thought to have a genetic cause. Single gene associations are being explored with techniques such as whole-exome sequencing. We investigated whether fetuses with CDH at our institution had known or novel genetic mutation.

The recently published paper “Inguinal hernias in girls: A retrospective analysis of over 1000 patients” [1] inspires a few practical lessons for surgeons caring for girls with inguinal hernias so they will not miss cases of complete androgen insensitivity syndrome (CAIS) [2].

AbstractBackgroundBurnia is a suturless repair for inguinal hernias in girls. It is performed under laparoscopy by grabbing the sac, inverting it into the peritoneal cavity, and cauterizing. The aim of this study is to report our experience with single-site laparoscopic burnia (BURNIA) and compare them with open repair (OPEN).MethodsWith IRB approval, pediatric female patients younger than 18  years of age who underwent inguinal hernia repair between January 2015 and December 2017 were enrolled. Medical records were retrospectively reviewed. The patients were divided into two groups, BURNIA and OPEN.Results198 patient...

We describe 2 cases of TAWH due to blunt impact by bicycle handlebars that occurred in our department with a brief literature review. Our objectives are to describe the variable clinical presentations and management of these events. We hope to provide a useful tool for the clinician to increase early clinical suspicion and detection of this insidious injury.

Conclusion Service provision has been severely affected by COVID-19 leading to an inevitable increase in untreated surgical pathology. Better understanding of extrapulmonary infectivity, the risk of asymptomatic carriage in children, and the reliability of testing for surgical scenarios may allow appropriate use of conventional surgery, including laparoscopy and endoscopy, and rational development of the novel care pathways needed during the pandemic.

Background: It is still not clear if the contralateral side should be explored in children with unilateral inguinal hernias. The primary aim of the present study was to assess the incidence of metachronous contralateral inguinal hernias (MCIHs) in the pediatric population. The second aim was to assess factors associated with increased risk of MCIH development. Methods: Prospective studies including patients from 0-19 years undergoing unilateral inguinal hernia repair without surgical exploration of the contralateral side between 1947 and April 2020 with a minimal follow-up of one year were searched. Searches included ...
