CONCLUSIONS TEP is superior to Lichtenstein with shorter hospitalization duration and lower rates of early postoperative pain. No difference between the two techniques was found for chronic pain. We believe that laparoscopic hernioplasty approach may be the best alternative technique for inguinal hernia repair.RESUMO OBJETIVOS As t écnicas de hernioplastia inguinal foram melhoradas desde a primeira hernioplastia. Técnicas livres de tensão que aplicam materiais de malha sintética, como na abordagem de Lichtenstein, são o padrão ouro. A hernioplastia laparoscópica é a a...

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) has a reported incidence of between 10 to 20% in western populations with an even higher incidence in populations with obesity (1). The vast majority of patients are managed medically with surgical intervention undertaken in those with recalcitrant GERD. Populations with obesity and recalcitrant GERD who are interested in weight loss surgery have historically undergone Laparoscopic Roux En Y Gastric Bypass (LRYGB). De Goot et al in their 2009 meta-analysis demonstrated improvement in GERD in people with obesity following LRYGB(2).

This study compared quality of life and symptom resolution and morbidity after eLPEHR between octogenarians and younger patients.MethodsA retrospective review was conducted comparing octogenarians (n=23) to younger patients (n=162) undergoing eLPEHR. Primary outcomes were pre and post-operative disease-specific quality of life (GERD-HRQL) and symptom scales (GERSS) and post-operative morbidity and length of stay (LOS).ResultsOctogenarians presented with higher ASA and lower preoperative BMI. Compared to controls, octogenarians exhibited higher overall morbidity (34.8% vs 16.1%, p=0.03), including cardiac events (8.7% vs 0....

Authors: Tamura T, Kaneko K, Yokota S, Kitao T, Ando M, Kubo Y, Nishiwaki K Abstract This randomized, observer-blinded prospective study aimed to compare the postoperative analgesic effects of ultrasound-guided rectus sheath block with those of local anesthetic infiltration of the surgical field in children undergoing inguinal hernia repair. Children aged 2 to 14 years, scheduled for elective single-incision laparoscopic percutaneous extraperitoneal closure, were randomly allocated to receive ultrasound-guided rectus sheath block (group R) or local anesthetic infiltration of the surgical field (group L). In group R...

Authors: Voeller GR, Chin AK, LeBlanc KA Abstract Laparoscopic ventral hernia repair incorporating a prosthetic mesh underlay, first described in 1993, has demonstrated a lower long-term recurrence rate versus open non-mesh repair. However, over the past 25 years, the laparoscopic approach to ventral/incisional hernias is utilized in only approximately 30% of cases. One of the reasons that prevents it from being utilized more often is the inability to readily, reliably, and easily close the fascial defect. A novel technique has been developed for full-thickness abdominal wall closure in laparoscopic ventral herniop...

The objective of this study was to evaluate if there ’s a difference in postoperative complications after LUHR versus OUHR with the goal of indicating an optimal approach.MethodsA retrospective analysis was completed using the 2016 National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (NSQIP) database to identify patients with obesity (Body Mass Index (BMI) ≥ 30 kg/m2) who underwent LUHR or OUHR. Patients were divided into OUHR and LUHR groups, and post-operative outcomes were compared, focusing on wound complications.ResultsA total of 12,026 patients with obesity who underwent umbilical hernia repair were ide...

ConclusionThe E/MILOS concept allows the endoscopically assisted (MILOS) or endoscopic (EMILOS) transhernial minimal invasive sublay mesh repair of primary umbilical and epigastric hernias with or without rectus diastasis with low complication, recurrence, and chronic pain rates.

The transthoracic approach to PEH repair has been displaced by the laparoscopic methods of repair for valuable reasons. Despite the pressures of performing minimally invasive surgery, the experienced esophageal surgeon will appreciate the benefits of the transthoracic repair in select circumstances as outlined in this article. In this writing, we discussed our indications, the salient anatomy and important steps in performing a successful transthoracic PEH repair.
