ConclusionA review of patient outcomes after hybrid AWR highlights a trend towards shorter length of stay, lower hospital cost, and fewer complications without significant addition to operative time. Long-term studies on a larger number of patients are definitively needed to characterize the comprehensive benefits of this approach.

ConclusionFemoral hernias causing bowel obstruction are associated with greater time between the development of symptoms, hospitalization, and with a longer hospital stay.
ConclusionIn our hands, a significantly higher recurrence rate exists for children undergoing the PIRS method over LICPV techniques when treating inguinal hernias.
AbstractIntroductionMagnetic sphincter augmentation (MSA) is a safe and effective treatment for patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). MSA was initially indicated for patients with GERD and concomitant hiatal hernias 2 cm) on videoesophagram or endoscopy.ResultsSeventy-nine patients (53% female) with a median age of 65.56 (58.42 –69.80) years were included. Median follow up was 2.98 (interquartile range 1.90–3.32) years. Median DeMeester scores decreased from 42.45 (29.12–60.73) to 9.10 (3.05–24.30) (p
ConclusionThe present study supports current literature in that low-fidelity anatomy models are a useful adjunct to aid students ’ learning of complex anatomical concepts. Students may benefit from creating their own inguinal canal model to retain as a personal study tool.
CONCLUSIONS: Post-esophagectomy paraconduit hernia is more common following totally minimally invasive esophagectomy compared with open or hybrid techniques. One-third are symptomatic and the remainder detected only radiographically. Repair of asymptomatic hernias should take into consideration the patient's cancer prognosis.

Robotic-assisted laparoscopic surgery (RALS) is evolving as an important surgical approach in the field of general surgery. We aimed to evaluate the learning curve for RALS procedures involving repair of hiatal hernias.
Early adopters of robotic hernia repair have commonly approached small hernias for repair as comfort increased on the platform. We aim to investigate the early temporal outcomes of the robot assisted hernia repairs.
