Hartmann ’s reversal as a safe procedure for selected patients: analysis of 199 patients at a high-volume center in Sao Paulo

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: 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.

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...

Abstract Parastomal hernias (PHs) frequently complicate enterostomy creation. Decision for PH repair (PHR) is driven by patient symptoms due to the frequency of complications and recurrences. The European Hernia Society (EHS) PH classification is based on the PH defect size and the presence/absence of concomitant incisional hernia. The aim of this study was to evaluate PHR outcomes based on EHS classification. An Institutional Review Board-approved retrospective review of a prospective database between 2009 and 2017 was performed. Patient demographics, enterostomy type, EHS classification, operative technique, and...

We thank Dr. Argo for his interest and for his thoughtful comments on our work.1 There is unquestionably a role for perioperative nonopioid analgesia in reducing the use of opioids after surgery. Although the amount of tissue disruption in pediatric umbilical hernias is generally minimal and local anesthetic and nonnarcotic oral analgesics are —in our experience—highly effective, more sophisticated techniques, such as regional nerve blocks, are increasingly being used in both pediatric and adult surgery.

This study examined patient-related outcome measures (PROMs) after repair of ventral primary or incisional hernias using Symbotex ™ composite mesh (SCM), a novel three-dimensional collagen-coated monofilament polyester textile.MethodsPre-operative, peri-operative, and post-operative data were obtained from the French “Club Hernie” registry with 12- and 24-month follow-up.ResultsOne-hundred consecutive patients (mean age 62.0  ± 13.7; 51% female) underwent repair of 105 hernias: primary (39/105, 37.1%, defect area 5.2 ± 5.6 cm2) and incisional (66/105, 62.9%, 31.9 ...

CONCLUSIONOpen surgery of large ventral hernia in spinal anaesthesia can be performed because the spinal anaesthesia provides adequate conditions for ventral hernia repair. The patient has to be in good physical condition in order for the surgery to be successful. During the surgery the patient has to be watched over vigilantly by the anaesthesiologist.

CONCLUSION: The results for laparoscopic ventral hernia repair, using a relatively new non-woven randomly oriented polypropylene microfiber mesh, are good with long-term follow up completed in the majority of patients. More experience with this type of mesh could generate evidence for the benefits of this mesh material in laparoscopic ventral hernia repair. PMID: 30865784 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionLumbar hernia is a rare abdominal wall defect, which is usually secondary to trauma or previous surgery. A thorough history and clinical examination, along with abdominal CT, will provide accurate confirmation of the diagnosis. CT should always be included in the investigation prior to surgery, even in uncomplicated cases. The relevant literature is limited, but confirms that laparoscopic repair with mesh is the treatment of choice, especially when the hernia is symptomatic.
