Transomental hernia – An enigmatic case report causing bowel obstruction in a virgin abdomen
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.
Specialist reserchers detect brain damage in patients with cervical hernias by using neuroimage and artificial intelligence techniques

ConclusionHartmann ’s reversal remains challenging but can have low complication and mortality rates if performed on selected patients in a reference center. An ASA of 3 was the only predictor of mortality.
CONCLUSION: Morgagni hernias are amenable to minimally invasive repair with this simple technique. With large defects, synthetic patches should be used. Recurrences are rare, and morbidity is low. PMID: 31926567 [PubMed - in process]
ConclusionThe use of CST versus No-CST in the repair of large VHs results in an increased risk of wound complications but does not increase the hernia recurrence rate. In the largest QOL comparative study to date, CST ’s generation of myofascial advancement flaps does not negatively impact patient QOL in the repair of large ventral hernias in the short or long term.
AbstractPurposeThere is increasing emphasis on value in health care, defined as quality over cost required to deliver care. We analyzed outcomes and costs of repairing medium-sized ventral hernias to identify whether an open retromuscular or laparoscopic intraperitoneal onlay approach would provide superior value to the patient and healthcare system.MethodsA retrospective analysis of prospectively collected data from the Americas Hernia Society Quality Collaborative was performed for patients undergoing clean, elective repair of ventral hernias between 4 and 8 cm in width at our institution between 4/2013 and 12/2016...

Conclusions: An open PP-VHR is a very effective means to repair large, complex, and recurrent hernias resulting in a low recurrence rate. Mesh choice in VHR is important and was associated with hernia recurrence and wound complications in this population.
ConclusionsThere was no difference in the incidence of IHR after open compared to laparoscopic resection. Compared to the open approach, laparoscopic resection increased the rate of subsequent emergency IHR, suggesting that a more aggressive therapeutic approach may be warranted in this patient group upon diagnosis of an incisional hernia.
Abstract Abdominal wall hernia repair, including ventral hernia repair, is one of the most common general surgical procedures. Nationally, at least 350 000 ventral hernia repairs are performed annually, and of those, 150 000 cases were identified as incisional hernias. Outcomes are reported to be poor, resulting in additional surgical repair rates of 12.3% at 5 years and as high as 23% at 10 years. Healthcare costs associated with ventral hernia repair are estimated to exceed $3 billion each year. Additionally, ventral hernia repair is often complex and unpredictable when there is a current infection or a history ...
