New, simple and reliable volumetric calculation technique in incisional hernias with loss of domain

AbstractIntroductionThe management of hernias with loss of domain is a challenging problem. It has been shown that the volume of the incisional hernia/peritoneal volume ratio

Left-sided diaphragmatic injuries are more commonly reported in literature. Bilateral injuries are extremely rare, occurring in about 3% of the patients and just few cases reported in literature. Traumatic diaphragmatic hernias are definitely a m...

Cirrhosis is a life-threatening condition and a major cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Improvement in the management of its related complications, of its aetiologies (i.e. viral eradication), and the option of liver transplantation have increased life expectancy of patients with cirrhosis. In this setting, it is not unusual that patients with cirrhosis are proposed for major surgical procedures for orthopaedic, malignancy or cirrhosis related complications. In fact, patients with cirrhosis have a high incidence of gallstones and abdominal wall hernias that require surgical repair[1 –4].

ConclusionsThis is the second case of isolated congenital intercostal pulmonary hernia reported in the French and English literature. It is the first to be treated by thoracoscopy. Based on this case we performed a review of the diagnosis and therapeutic aspect of pulmonary hernias.

ConclusionsThe true incidence of occult contralateral inguinal hernia may be higher than originally thought. When inguinal hernia repair is performed through a transabdominal approach, these occult hernias may be easily addressed during the same operation without additional skin incisions. This may ultimately prevent the morbidity of developing a metachronous hernia that requires repair.

AbstractPurposeWe compared the outcomes of laparoscopic surgery (LS) with those of open surgery (OS) for unilateral and bilateral pediatric inguinal hernia.MethodsUsing a nationwide claim-based database in Japan, we analyzed data from children younger than 15  years old, who underwent inguinal hernia repair between January 2005 and December 2017. Patient characteristics, incidence of reoperation, postoperative complications, length of hospital stay, and duration of anesthesia were compared between LS and OS for unilateral and bilateral hernia.ResultsAmong 5554 patients, 2057 underwent LS (unilateral 1095, bilateral 96...

ConclusionThe introduction of a liquid material which solidifies after injection in a short time (hydrogel) using a needle is feasible. The combined CT-scan and US image guidance allows for the percutaneous placement of the needle in the required location. The introduced hydrogel remains in this space, corresponding to the inguinal region, without moving. The placed hydrogel compresses the posterior wall composed of the transversalis fascia, supporting the potential use of hydrogel for hernia defects.

AbstractPurposeTo provide an overview of the available literature on prevention of incisional hernias after stoma reversal, with the use of prophylactic meshes.MethodsA literature search of Pubmed, MEDLINE and EMBASE was performed. Search terms for stoma, enterostomy, mesh, prophylaxis and hernia were used. Search was updated to December 31th 2018. No time limitations were used, while English, Geman, Dutch and French were used as language restrictions. The primary outcome was the incidence of incisional hernia formation after stoma reversal. Secondary outcomes were mesh-related complications. Data on study design, sample s...

Peppas, Eran RosenbergAbstractLipoblastomas are rare, encapsulated tumors arising from embryonic white fat. They primarily occur in infancy and early childhood and have a male predominance. Lipoblastomas are usually located on the trunk and extremities although may develop on the head and neck, mediastinum, abdomen, and retroperitoneum. They are seldom encountered in the inguinal region. A complete resection of the tumor followed by diligent postoperative imaging are essential to detect r...
