AbstractObjectiveIn this systematic review, we evaluated all literature reporting on the surgical treatment of primary epigastric hernias, primarily focusing on studies comparing laparoscopic and open repair, and mesh reinforcement and suture repair.MethodsA literature search was conducted in Embase.com, PubMed and the Cochrane Library up to 24 April 2019. This review explicitly excluded literature on incisional hernias, ventral hernias not otherwise specified, and isolated (para)umbilical hernias. Primary outcome measures of interest were early and late postoperative complications.ResultsWe  obtained a total of ...

CONCLUSION: Surgeons must work with the implant that best suits their patients' needs and that also provides good results and adequate working comfort. The PUMP technique performs well for ventral hernias sized between 2 and 4 cm without the need of midline reconstruction due to diastasis of the rectus muscles. It enables a local extraperitoneal mesh augmentation without the risk of intraperitoneal complications. PUMP repair lowers the risk of recurrence in comparison with suture repair without increasing the risk of complications. PMID: 31394581 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionHeightened awareness of the condition combined with our proposition of a Hybrid repair achieves optimal results in an emergency setting. A Laparoscopic assisted repair of a strangulated hernia provides a durable repair and at the same time offers the patient benefits of minimally invasive surgery.

This study is a retrospective analysis of a prospectively maintained database of all patients with groin hernia who underwent TEP repair in a single surgical unit between January 2004 and January 2018. Patients’ demographic profile and hernia characteristics (duration, side, extent, content, and reducibility) were noted in the prestructured proforma. Clinical outcomes included the operation time, intraoperative and postoperative complications, length of postoperative hospital stay, hernia recurrence, chronic pain, recurrence, seroma, and wound infections. Long-term follow-up was carried out in the outpatient departme...

AbstractIntroductionCollecting clinical data is viewed as the gold standard for assessing health-care quality. However, considerable investment is needed if the quality of care is to be recorded over a long period of time. Accordingly, the question arises as to whether routine administrative data may be used for quality assurance purposes if certain methodological standards are followed. This present study now compares the outcomes of inguinal hernia repair from the Herniamed Hernia Registry with routine data from Germany ’s largest sickness fund, the Local General Sickness Fund “AOK”.Materials and method...

Conclusions: Abdominal wall endometriosis is the presence of ectopic endometrial tissue in any layer of the abdominal wall. Patients with this diagnosis are referred to the general surgeon presenting a tumor, however, the preoperative diagnosis rate is erroneous in most cases. Abdominal wall ultrasound is useful in diagnosis; tomography and magnetic resonance determine the extent of the disease. The treatment must be related to the extension of the disease and its recurrence is associated with the presence of positive margins. PMID: 31264985 [PubMed - in process]

This study aimed to assess the role of Scarpa’s fascia preservation in patients with ventral hernias associated with abdominal wall deformity who underwent concomitant hernio-abdominoplasty in terms of early and late postoperative outcome and quality of life. Methods: Patients with ventral hernia and abdominal wall deformity underwent combined hernio-abdominoplasty. Patients were randomly allocated to 1 of 2 equal groups: group I underwent Scarpa’s fascia preserving hernio-abdominoplasty and group II underwent hernio-abdominoplasty with removal of Scarpa’s fascia. Volume of drainage, time to remove dra...
