ConclusionOur results indicate similar outcome after laparoscopic and open techniques for groin hernia repair in children. The surgeon ’s preference as well as the wishes of the patient and parents should therefore determine the surgical approach.

ConclusionThis case demonstrates that robotic repair of a Morgagni hernia, even with massive hernia content, is feasible in adolescents. However, whether robotic surgery in general, and for Morgagni hernia in particular, is superior to laparoscopy in children, remains to be proven.

(CHICAGO) — When emergency tests showed the telltale right-sided pain in Heather VanDusen’s abdomen was appendicitis, she figured she’d be quickly wheeled into surgery. But doctors offered her the option of antibiotics instead. A new study from Finland shows her choice is a reasonable alternative for most patients with appendicitis. Five years after treatment with antibiotics, almost two-thirds of patients hadn’t had another attack. It’s a substantial change in thinking about how to treat an inflamed appendix. For decades, appendicitis has been considered a medical emergency requiring immediat...

Abstract Morgagni hernia (MH) is a very rare congenital defect found in the anterior aspect of the diaphragm between the costal and sternal portions of the muscle. The most common defect is congenital diaphragmatic hernia, 90% of which are Bochdalek type. MHs account for approximately 3% of all diaphragmatic hernias. Most MHs are found and repaired in children, but 5% are found in adults. Here, we present the case of an incarcerated and strangulated MH with synchronous prolapse of the liver and transverse colon in a 77-year-old man who was admitted to our hospital for abdominal pain and symptoms of intestinal obst...

Purpose of review Pediatric inguinal hernias are a commonly performed surgical procedure. Currently, they can be approached via open or laparoscopic surgery. We summarize the current evidence for laparoscopic inguinal hernia repairs in children. Recent findings Laparoscopic and open inguinal hernia repair in children are associated with similar operative times for unilateral hernia, as well as similar cosmesis, complication rates and recurrence rates. Bilateral hernia repair has been shown to be faster through a laparoscopic approach. The laparoscopic approach is associated with decreased pain scores and earlier recov...

Inguinal hernias are common in infants and children. While the gold standard for hernia repair in the pediatric period has been via an open inguinal incision with dissection and high ligation of the hernia sac, over the past two decades laparoscopic herniorrhaphy has increased in popularity. The advantages of laparoscopy include decreased post-operative pain, improved cosmetic results, ability to easily assess the contralateral side for an open internal inguinal ring, and decreased risk of metachronous hernias.

DiscussionLP procedure appeared to be as quick as the open procedure. Our results were similar to others series for intraoperative complications. According to operative time, this technique does not have an impact on operative room utilization. Vomiting duration at presentation in HPS does not seem to have a significant impact on postoperative outcomes. LP procedure causes little pain during the postoperative period. No wound complications were registered.

Discussion Cystic fibrosis (CF) is an autosomal recessive disorder caused by mutations in the cystic fibrosis transmembrane receptor (CFTR). It is found in the epithelium of the bronchi, intestine, pancreatic duct and biliary tree. It regulates chloride, bicarbonate and water secretion. The heterozygous state helps prevent against secretory diarrhea, but the homozygous state causes thickened secretions in the hollow tubes of the lungs and digestive tract. There are multiple mutations (> 2000) which have been currently classified into classes depending on their protein production and activity. CF patients generally are l...

Laparoscopic hernia repairs are used increasingly in children. The purpose of this single-center cohort observational research study was to analyze the outcome of children treated surgically for unilateral or bilateral inguinal hernia using laparoscopy. We did a STROBE-compliant retrospective outcome analysis of pediatric, laparoscopic hernia repair. Consecutive laparoscopic herniorrhaphies in 123 children done between March 2, 2010, and March 1, 2014, were included in this analysis. Data analysis was based on reviewing the hospital records and a prospective questionnaire. We evaluated postoperative hernia recurrence rat...
