Laparoscopic Paraesophageal Hernia Repair and Pulmonary Embolism
Conclusions: Highly complex cases, marked by revisional status, need for mesh, large hernia size, and percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy placement are likely at increased risk for PEs. Preoperative venous thromboembolism chemoprophylaxis should be considered in the majority of laparoscopic PEHR patients.

Summary: Incisional hernia often complicates kidney transplant. However, there are few reports showing pitfalls after the repair of incisional hernia following living-donor kidney transplant. A 55-year-old man underwent living-donor kidney transplant from his wife at the Department of Urology at the authors’ hospital. He noticed abdominal distension 6 months postoperatively and was diagnosed with incisional hernia by computed tomography (CT) imaging. Clinical examination revealed the extensive distension of the right abdomen; noncontrast abdominal CT showed transverse colon, descending colon, and mesenteric prolapse ...
The objective of the present study was to determine whether patients with an active cannabis use disorder have an elevated risk of postoperative complications.Methods The authors conducted a retrospective population-based cohort study of patients undergoing elective surgery in the United States using the Nationwide Inpatient Sample from 2006 to 2015. A sample of 4,186,622 inpatients 18 to 65 yr of age presenting for 1 of 11 elective surgeries including total knee replacement, total hip replacement, coronary artery bypass graft, caesarian section, cholecystectomy, colectomy, hysterectomy, breast surgery, hernia repair, lami...
ConclusionsClinicians should consider both the strength of individual risk factors and the cumulative weight of all risk factors prior to surgery. A full VTE risk assessment is essential with proper prophylaxis measures especially in quality-of-life procedures.
Conclusion VTE rates in the obese patients are similar to that of the general population with the exception of PE in those undergoing abdominal wall hernia repair.
Conclusions: Component separation is used for large and complex incisional/ventral hernia repairs to achieve tension-free midline closure. Although component separation hernia repair is associated with higher incidence of wound complication, morbidity, and mortality, perhaps because of the complexity of the defects, it does not seem to be associated with increased VTE rates.
