MILOS and EMILOS repair of primary umbilical and epigastric hernias

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.

ConclusionsThis meta-analysis indicates that MPR and PHS seem comparable to LR in terms of recurrence, chronic pain, time to return to work, inguinal paresthesia, testicular and scrotal problems, hematoma, seroma and wound infection. MPR and PHS seem comparable in terms of recurrence, chronic pain and wound infection.

AbstractIntroductionTo date, little attention has been paid by surgical scientific studies to sex as a potential influence factor on the outcome. Therefore, there is a sex bias in the surgical literature. With an incidence of more than 20% after 3  years, incisional hernias are a common complication following abdominal surgical procedures. The proportion of women affected is around 50%. There are very few references in the literature to the influence of sex on the outcome of elective incisional hernia repair.Materials and methodsIn all, 22,895 patients with elective incisional hernia repair from the Herniamed Registry...

We present three cases of lung herniation as a complication of videothoracoscopic surgery.Case: Three patients with the history of videothoracoscopic lung resection for lung cacner, admitted to our clinic at different times with similar complaintments like chest pain, bulge on the chest wall and cought(table). Herniated lung parenchyma was detected in thorax computed tomography. Surgical repair of lung herniation was planned. The postoperative period of all three patients was uneventful.CaseAge/GenderPrevious OperationComplaintPotential Predisposing FactorRepairmentRecurrence163/MRULChest pain and bulge on the chest wallCO...

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.

To investigate the feasibility, efficacy, and safety of laparoscopic totally extraperitoneal (TEP) repair in patients with inguinal hernia accompanied by liver cirrhosis. Between October 2015 and May 2018, 17 patients with liver cirrhosis who underwent TEP repair were included in this study. The baseline characteristics, perioperative data, and recurrence were retrospectively reviewed. Seventeen patients with a mean duration of 18.23 ± 16.80 months were enrolled. All TEP repairs were successful without conversion to trans-abdominal pre-peritoneal (TAPP) surgery or open repair, but 4 patients had peritoneum rupture...

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]

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...
