Enhanced recovery after surgical repair of incisional hernias

ConclusionsLike in other surgeries, ERPs were feasible and probably efficient to improve the post-operative course of incisional hernia patients. But the level of evidence remains low.

Menon, Herbert Mössler, Hari Shanker SharmaAbstractThere is a growing trend of hypertension among military and civilian populations due to lifetime stressful situations. If hypertension is uncontrolled it leads to development of diabetes and serious neurological complications. Most of the World populations live in temperate zone across the World. Thus, a possibility exists that these hypertensive and diabetic people may have external heat as potential risk ...

Abstract A significant obstacle to the study of human cancer biology and the testing of human specific immunotherapeutics is the paucity of translational models that recapitulate both the growth of human tumors and the functionality of human immune systems. Humanized mice engrafted with human hematopoietic stem cells (HSC) and patient-derived xenografts (PDX) enable preclinical investigation of the interactions between the human immune system and human cancer. We use immunodeficient non-obese diabetic (NOD, scid, gamma) NSG™ or NSG™-SGM3 mice as hosts for establishment of human immunity following HSC i...

Authors: Shakhatreh M, Jehangir A, Malik Z, Parkman HP Abstract Introduction: Gastroparesis is a chronic disorder of the stomach characterized by delayed gastric emptying without mechanical obstruction. Diabetes is the most commonly known cause of gastroparesis. Management of diabetic gastroparesis involves lifestyle modifications, glycemic control, pharmacological drugs, and for refractory cases surgical treatments. Metoclopramide remains the only drug approved by the Food and Drug Administration for diabetic gastroparesis. The aim of this article is to provide a concise review of the pharmacology, clinical effica...

ConclusionSynchronous VHR and BS in a bariatric unit is feasible with low recurrence rate. Laparoscopic VHR has lower complication rates than open, apart from seroma formation. Patients with diabetes have higher risk of infection.

Patients with obesity have a higher incidence of ventral hernias and are at greater risk of developing complications after hernia repair [1,2]. These complications include a higher risk of recurrence, wound infection, wound breakdown, and venous thromboembolic episodes. The elevated intra-abdominal pressure, increased abdominal circumference, and visceral fat may play a role, as might the association of obesity with type 2 diabetes.

In conclusion, our series is one of the largest in the literature involving the suture anchor technique. Despite a high-risk patient population due to trauma, obesity, and prior smoking and MRSA history, we achieved an acceptable recurrence rate. Further study may benefit from a randomized trial design.

Conclusions: This is the first prospective study comparing management strategies in VH patients with comorbidities. Elective repair improves hernia-related QoL and function in low- to moderate-risk patients and should be considered in appropriately selected patients.
