ConclusionPerineal hernias can be repaired with robot-assisted laparoscopy. Furthermore, compared with the open and laparoscopic methods, suturing and mesh placement are easier with the robot approach.

ConclusionsWe report a laparoscopic trans-peritoneal approach for the safe, reproducible and efficacious repair of incisional inguinal hernias that result from CLND. In our opinion prevention of hernia recurrence can be achieved by a intraperitoneal large mesh fixed at superior and lateral margin borders with permanent fasteners and using cyanoacrylate glue to overlap inferior margin borders in order to prevent vessels and/or nerve injury.

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.

AbstractPurposeParastomal hernia is a complication with high morbidity that affects the patient ’s quality of life. The aim of this study was to assess the cumulative incidence of parastomal hernia in patients who have undergone colorectal cancer surgery and to identify potential risk factors that could predispose to the development of this type of hernia in a large population-based cohort o ver a long follow-up period.MethodsThe Swedish Colorectal Cancer Registry and the National Patient Register were used to collect study cohort data between January 2007 and September 2013. All patients undergoing colorectal cancer...

ConclusionsThe incidence of incisional hernia after cytoreduction and HIPEC is within the ranges described in the literature for other abdominal surgery procedures. The use of systemic chemotherapy and treatment with HIPEC, in particular, were identified as factors related to their occurrence.

WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. health regulators on Tuesday halted sales of a type of surgical mesh used to repair pelvic conditions in women, following years of patients’ reports of injuries and complications from the implants. The Food and Drug Administration ordered the two remaining makers of the mesh — Boston Scientific and Coloplast — to stop selling it immediately, saying the companies failed to show the mesh is safe for long-term use. Several other major manufacturers, including Johnson &Johnson, previously stopped making the mesh. The FDA action does not apply to surgical mesh used to treat oth...

Conclusion: Our findings show the all-encompassing impact of a CAWH on the life of cancer survivors. They strongly suggest that hernia management should be viewed as an integral part in the continuum of cancer treatment to improve the quality of life of cancer survivors with hernias.

CONCLUSIONSymptomatic perineal hernias can feasibly be repaired with robot-assisted laparoscopy. Furthermore, suturing and mesh placement require less effort with the robot approach when compared to the open and laparoscopic approaches. These promising findings are demonstrated in the included video.

ConclusionsThe characteristics associated with developing IHs after LLND were similar to those after RRP. Any pelvic operation via the extraperitoneal approach has a risk of IHs, and surgeons should pay attention to IHs after surgery.
