CONCLUSIONS: Despite more comorbidities in the over 65s, this study shows that there is no significant difference in complication rates between laparoscopic and open inguinal hernia repair irrespective of age category. Selection bias for the type of repair and the potential for an alpha error mean larger studies are required to show equivalence. PMID: 32243111 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION: Delayed repair, up to 2 months later, for uncomplicated infant hernia carries a small risk of incarceration but does not increase the rate of strangulation or other complications. PMID: 32243110 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abdominal and pelvic wall hernias are classically defined as a weakness or opening of the muscular wall through which abdominal or pelvic tissues protrude. The aim of this manuscript is to review the imaging findings of abdominal and pelvic wall hernias and their mimics and to discuss pearls and pitfalls for accurately diagnosing and classifying these entities.

Conclusions: The success of robotic fundoplication depends on adhering to a few important technical principles. In our experience, the robotic surgical treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease with large paraesophageal hernias may afford the surgeon increased dexterity and is feasible with comparable outcomes compared with traditional laparoscopic approaches.

DR JOHN SCOTT ROTH (Lexington, KY): The authors address a challenging and controversial area in the field of hernia by analyzing their experiences with hernia repair in clean-contaminated, contaminated, and infected hernias. These decisions have an impact on both patient outcomes and economic implications in hernia repair due to the increased risk of surgical site infection and hernia recurrence relative to clean hernia repair.

ConclusionsInitial experiences with this technique show that the TES procedure is safe and reliable, requires no specific instruments, and is highly reproducible. There is no need for an expensive anti-adhesion mesh or fixation device, making it cost-effective.
