Anterior enterocele as an etiology for anterior vaginal wall prolapse: a magnetic resonance defecography case series
We report a series of seven patients who presented with anterior vaginal wall “mass” or bulge after cystectomy and were found on magnetic resonance defecography (MRD) to have enteroceles or sigmoidoceles in the anterior rather than posterior compartment. MRD was instrumental for diagnoses in these patients and to exclude local recurrence of bladder malignancy. We also report five additional patients that were found to have bowel herniation anterior to the vaginal apex, but without history of cystectomy.
CONCLUSION: Laparoscopic surgery is associated with decreased odds of incisional hernias and adhesional intestinal obstructions compared with open surgery for colorectal cancer.
AbstractObjectiveThe ideal location of specimen extraction in laparoscopic-assisted colorectal surgery is still debatable.SummaryThe aim of this study was to compare the incidence of incisional hernias and surgical site infections in patients undergoing elective laparoscopic resection for recurrent sigmoid diverticulitis by performing specimen extraction through left lower transverse incision or Pfannenstiel-Kerr incision.MethodsA total of 269 patients operated between January 2014 and December 2017 were retrospectively screened for inclusion in the study. Patients with specimen extraction through left lower transverse inc...
AbstractBackgroundUlcerative colitis frequently requires surgery as a definitive management strategy. The colonic specimen can be extracted from various sites including a midline incision, the stoma site, or a Pfannenstiel incision. It is unclear if one extraction site offers improved outcomes and fewer complications.MethodsA retrospective review of charts obtained of colorectal surgery patients was conducted for all patients with ulcerative colitis who underwent a subtotal colectomy between 2008 and 2016 at a single tertiary care institution. Demographic data and outcomes data including parastomal and incisional hernias, ...
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.
ConclusionTransomental Hernias can be present in virgin abdomen also. Its presence should be considered in all suspicions of internal hernia occurrence even though they are commonly known to be associated with bariatric surgery, liver surgery, etc.
ConclusionWe believe that mesenteric defects should be closed after laparoscopic resection of the left side of transverse colon, regardless of their size.
ConclusionThe peritoneal flap hernioplasty is associated with few complications and a very low recurrence rate. We propose this technique as the method of choice for reconstruction of transverse abdominal incisional hernias when primary fascial apposition is not possible.
ConclusionsAlthough repair of recurrent PEHs are historically associated with worse outcomes, in this series, RAL recurrent PEH repairs have similar peri-operative and post-operative outcomes as compared to primary PEH repairs. Whether this is secondary to the potential advantages afforded by the robotic platform deserves further study.
Conclusion: It is important to consider mesh graft migration to viscus as a cause of persistent abdominal pain and bleeding per rectum irrespective of the time of presentation post hernia repair. PMID: 31788028 [PubMed]
