How to manage abdominal hernia on peritoneal dialysis?

[How to manage abdominal hernia on peritoneal dialysis?] Nephrol Ther. 2020 Jan 27;: Authors: Boyer A, Bonnamy C, Lanot A, Guillouet S, Béchade C, Recorbet M Abstract Abdominal hernias are a frequent complication in peritoneal dialysis, representing up to 60.4% of anatomical complications. Their prevalence varies between 7 and 27.5%. Established risk factors are male gender, an older age, multiparity, a low body mass index and a paramedian approach for the catheter insertion. Polykystic renal disease and the intra-peritoneal volume are controversial risk factors. The diagnosis is mainly clinical, though peritoneography imaging can be useful in difficult cases. Hernia's complications, of strangulation, incarceration, bowel occlusion and peritonitis; can be very serious, leading to technique failure and may result in death. The complication risk varies from 4 to 20% in the literature review. There are no guidelines regarding hernia's prevention or treatment. A surgical repair is recommended, by implementing a synthetic prothesis with an inguinal approach for inguinal and femoral hernias, with a simple stitch or a bioprothesis for ombilical hernias. The management of peritoneal dialysis after hernia repair is not codified. After an initial 48h interruption, an intermittent peritoneal dialysis program using low volume seems efficient at low risk, preventing a temporary transfer to haemodialysis.

AbstractASBO is a common cause of emergency surgery and the use of laparoscopy for the treatment of these patients is still under debate and conflicting results have been published, in particular regarding the high risk of iatrogenic bowel injury. In fact, although over the last few years there has been an increasing enthusiasm in the surgical community about the advantages and potential better outcomes of laparoscopic management of adhesive small bowel obstruction (ASBO), recently published studies have introduced a significant word of caution. From 2011 in our centre, we have started to systematically approach ASBO in ca...

Abstract Patients treated with peritoneal dialysis (PD) are often required to switch to hemodialysis (HD) temporarily when they develop abdominal wall hernias and dialysate leaks, peritonitis or undergo thoracic or abdominal surgeries. There are significant risks associated with incident hemodialysis including possible central venous catheter infections, thrombosis, and need for invasive procedures. Therefore, strategies to avoid temporary transfer to hemodialysis are desirable. The increased intra-abdominal pressure associated with PD is largely responsible for the issues requiring withholding PD. However, the hi...

We report the case of a 78-year-old woman who presented for elective ascending aortic aneurysm repair. Computed tomographic angiograms incidentally revealed a large intrapericardial diaphragmatic hernia, which had probably developed years earlier, after a traffic accident. The patient underwent a median sternotomy and repair of the intrapericardial diaphragmatic hernia with use of a bovine pericardial patch, followed by ascending aortic and hemiarch repair, aortic valve repair, and aorto-right coronary artery bypass grafting. We discuss the details of these procedures and alternative treatment options. To our knowledge, th...

CONCLUSION Any case of acute abdomen causing high intra-abdominal pressure could potentially cause further herniation of an existing paraesophageal hernia, resulting in acute compromised respiratory function. In patients known to have a paraesophageal hernia, similar cases should be suspected if the patient presents with acute breathing difficulties.

Abstract Current techniques for ventral hernia repair (VHR) rely on prosthetic mesh implantation and are increasingly performed laparoscopically. Potentially serious iatrogenic complications may occur following VHR, though these are rare compared to the vast number of procedures performed each year. This paper provides an overview of contemporary open and laparoscopic surgical techniques and biomaterials, then reviews and illustrates the expected postoperative imaging appearances, and common and unusual early complications after VHR. Emphasis is placed on multidetector computed tomography (CT), which comprehensiv...

Conclusions: Ventral abdominal hernias can be repaired in horses using a bioresorbable silk mesh, which provides adequate biomechanical strength while allowing for fibrous tissue ingrowth. The use of a bioresorbable silk mesh for the repair of ventral hernias can be considered as a realistic option as it potentially provides significant benefits over traditional non-resorbable mesh.
