Long-term Outcome of Incisional Hernia Repairs Using the Erlangen Inlay Onlay Mesh (EIOM) Technique

The objective of this study was to investigate the long-term outcome of incisional hernias treated with the Erlangen Inlay Onlay Mesh (EIOM) repair technique, taking into account recurrence, complications, and patient satisfaction.

Groin hernia repair is the most common elective operation performed worldwide with over 20 million operations per year[1]. The rate of hernia surgery varies from 10 per 10000 people in the United Kingdom to 28 per 10000 people in the United States[2]. Around 5% –15% of hernia patients have incarceration, of which approximately 15% of cases may evolve into bowel necrosis requiring bowel resection[3]. Patients with bowel necrosis have a significantly longer hospitalization and a higher postoperative complications, which varied from 6% to 43%[4–7], with a mortality rate of 1%–7%[4,6].

Conclusion Inguinal herniation of the transplant ureter leading to ureteral obstruction is a rare, probably underreported, cause graft of dysfunction. Therefore, we advocate elective repair of inguinal or incisional hernias in renal transplant recipients. PMID: 31690216 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: Ovarian inguinal hernias should be considered among the differential diagnoses of a groin mass or swelling. In women of reproductive age, repair of the hernia with the intent to preserve fertility is of critical importance. PMID: 31696731 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionWe strongly recommend employing a combined laparoscopic and thoracoscopic approach for an emergency repair of a tension gastrothorax in a hemodynamically stable patient as, it poses all the advantages of minimal access surgery and is available, at smaller centres, even in an emergency.

CONCLUSION: Although, the patch itself has tendency to make a dome formation when placed intra-abdominally, a composite polypropylene and ePTFE hernia patch has better outcomes if placed precisely with minimal extra-peritoneal and extensive intra-peritoneal dissection. We assume that inadequate liberation of omental attachments around the defect enhances the prior reported failures of the product. KEY WORDS: Composite mesh, Hernia, Ventralex patch.

CONCLUSIONLaparoscopic plug removal for nociceptive pain due to a plug meshoma is effective. However, since there is insufficient evidence to recommend mesh removal without triple neurectomy, informed consent and further consideration of techniques and diagnostic methods are needed.
