ConclusionSingle conventional port intracorporeal IHR obviates additional stab wounds. Additionally, present technique eliminates the risk of skin puckering, subcutaneous granuloma, infection, nerve, and muscle damage development induced by the subcutaneously placed knot in laparoscopy-assisted IHR. Single conventional port intracorporeal IHR in children is a feasible and safe operative technique with low complication rates.

To introduce the use of a new surgical approach named single-incision bilateral inguinal herniorrhaphy (SBIH) in pediatric surgical population. This was a STROBE-compliant retrospective cohort study using data from 101 patients who had undergone bilateral inguinal herniorrhaphy in our institution. Children with bilateral inguinal hernias without contraindications for surgery, ranging in age from 6 months to 12 years, were included. Fifty-six children with bilateral inguinal hernias underwent SBIH (SBIH group) and 45 patients underwent laparoscopic bilateral inguinal herniorrhaphy (LBIH) (LBIH group). Differences in operat...

Conclusion: Hook and purse-string methods are equally popular in LHR for paediatric incarcerated hernias, with 50% hernia reductions possible at the time of surgery. Recurrence rate is low and comparable with non-incarcerated hernias; however, it is significantly higher in purse-string method than hook technique.

Abstract Subcutaneous endoscopically assisted ligation (SEAL) technique is an effective and minimally invasive approach for indirect inguinal hernia repair in children. Not all patients are candidates for SEAL because of technical limitations. We hypothesized that preoperatively assessed patient-level factors may predict technical feasibility of SEAL repair. We performed a retrospective review of all patients who underwent indirect inguinal hernia repair between June 2012 and December 2014. All patients younger than two years and any patient older than two years who had a concomitant umbilical hernia were consider...

AbstractPurposeWe compared the outcomes of laparoscopic surgery (LS) with those of open surgery (OS) for unilateral and bilateral pediatric inguinal hernia.MethodsUsing a nationwide claim-based database in Japan, we analyzed data from children younger than 15  years old, who underwent inguinal hernia repair between January 2005 and December 2017. Patient characteristics, incidence of reoperation, postoperative complications, length of hospital stay, and duration of anesthesia were compared between LS and OS for unilateral and bilateral hernia.ResultsAmong 5554 patients, 2057 underwent LS (unilateral 1095, bilateral 96...

ConclusionSPLPEC of inguinal hernia using “two-hooked” core needle apparatus in children is a feasible and reliable minimal invasive procedure. It has the advantages of short operating time, low complication rate, low recurrence rate and better cosmetic result.

ConclusionOur results indicate similar outcome after laparoscopic and open techniques for groin hernia repair in children. The surgeon ’s preference as well as the wishes of the patient and parents should therefore determine the surgical approach.

AbstractPurposeThe introduction of laparoscopy for hernia repair permits intra-abdominal observation of a hernia and contralateral persistent processus vaginalis (CPPV). The current study ’s aim was to investigate the diameter of opening of an inguinal hernia and CPPV in patients with unilateral inguinal hernia, and to evaluate their correlation with age.MethodsFrom September 2012 to August 2017, 569 pediatric patients underwent laparoscopic repair of unilateral inguinal hernia. We retrospectively evaluated the size of the hernia and CPPV by measuring the diameter of opening. Pearson correlation analysis and linear-b...

ConclusionLaparoscopic reoperation with hernia sac removal and suture repair of the muscular arch of the internal inguinal ring with nonabsorbable material is an effective operation with few recurrences and complications.
