Patient reported outcome following incisional hernia repair: A survey on 163 patients at two maximum care hospitals

ConclusionsDue to our findings we assume that the AB may induce immobility and reduce postoperative pain. A prolonged period of physical rest and wearing an AB does not seem to have an impact on the postoperative outcome following IHR. Therefore, a shortened duration of physical rest and wearing an AB following IHR should be taken under consideration. To reveal more evidence on this topic further clinical trials are essential.

ConclusionIn a selected patient collective with small and lateral incisional hernias and with a large proportion of women, outcomes obtained for the onlay and sublay techniques do not differ significantly.

ConclusionsThe present study failed to show an advantage of tacks over suture fixation and even there are more severe adverse events. Using tacks significantly increases the costs of hernia repair.

ConclusionThe use of self-gripping mesh with ACS can be performed without increasing the operative time or causing short-term surgical complications. This technique may be recommended for large IH because of its simplicity and secure abdominal reinforcement provided.

AbstractOpen inguinal hernia repair remains the most universal, ubiquitous, reliable, and cost-effective method of addressing the global burden of groin hernias. Advances in anatomic understanding and technique have refined a few well-established techniques that can address the majority of the burden of disease with low rates of morbidity, recurrence, and chronic pain. Prosthetic reinforcement has become routine because of the clear reduction in recurrence rates in general practice conferred by mesh and the less-appreciated consideration of simplification of the repair whereby operator variability, hernia type, anatomic va...

Conclusion: Judging from our short-term results, we suggest that the eTEP technique can be adapted in centres with advanced laparoscopic skills with the careful patient selection.

Conclusion: Modified placement of composite mesh is safe and helps in minimising mesh-related complications of the Sugarbaker technique for parastomal hernias.

ConclusionThis meta-analysis and trial sequential analysis report no difference in recurrence rates between laparoscopic and open primary unilateral inguinal hernia repairs. Rates of acute and chronic pain are significantly less in the laparoscopic group.

CONCLUSIONS: Based on abdominal pain characteristics, we can reasonably postulate the presence of remittent bowel torsions (remittent internal hernia) in many patients after antecolic RYGB, only occasionally complicating. Therapeutic management of these cases remains controversial, being laparoscopic exploration a reasonable option when symptomatology is suggestive. PMID: 31125004 [PubMed - in process]

ConclusionIn our experience of almost 30 years we have been able to experiment and refine more and more the sutureless technique proposed by Trabucco for the treatment of primitive inguinal hernia, peer to peer, improving the local anaesthesia and the ability to detect hidden defects during the repair (Spigelian included), reducing the width of the incisions and tractions on the tissues, introducing the concept of a gentle and bloodless “finger surgery” according to a minimally invasive, extremely anatomic, safe, inexpensive, very effective anterior open approach.

ConclusionHernia surgery, although an everyday event for many practitioners, requires the same rigor as all other visceral surgery.
