Laparoscopic parastomal hernia repair delays recurrence relative to open repair
AbstractBackgroundMesh repair of parastomal hernia is widely accepted as superior to non-mesh repair, yet the most favorable surgical approach is a subject of continued debate. The aim of this study was to compare the clinical outcomes of open versus laparoscopic parastomal hernia repair.MethodsAn IRB-approved retrospective review was conducted comparing laparoscopic (LPHR) or open (OPHR) parastomal hernia repair performed between 2009 and 2017 at our facilities. Patient demographics, preoperative characteristics, operative details, and clinical outcomes were compared by surgical approach. Subgroup analysis was performed by location of mesh placement. Repair longevity was measured using Kaplan –Meier method and Cox proportional hazards regression. Intention to treat analysis was used for this study based on initial approach to the repair.ResultsSixty-two patients (average age of 61 years) underwent repair (31 LPHR, 31 OPHR). Patient age, gender, BMI, ASA Class, and comorbidity status were similar between OPHR and LPHR. Stoma relocation was more common in OPHR (32% vs 7%,p = .022). Open sublay subgroup was similar to LPHR in terms of wound class and relocation. Open “Other” and Sublay subgroups resulted in more wound complications compared to LPHR (70% and 48% vs 27%,p = .036). Operative duration and hospital length of stay were less with LPHR (p
Conclusions: Biological mesh is safe and effective in repairing inguinal hernia, with comparable intraoperative and early postoperative morbidity to the synthetic mesh.
ConclusionsAlthough repair of recurrent PEHs are historically associated with worse outcomes, in this series, RAL recurrent PEH repairs have similar peri-operative and post-operative outcomes as compared to primary PEH repairs. Whether this is secondary to the potential advantages afforded by the robotic platform deserves further study.
ConclusionsPatient-reported symptoms and satisfaction did not vary for patients receiving laparoscopic Nissen versus Toupet fundoplication, which may indicate that patients with large type III and IV hiatal hernia undergoing either procedure have similar long-term postoperative symptom control.
This study is a retrospective analysis of a prospectively maintained database of all patients with groin hernia who underwent TEP repair in a single surgical unit between January 2004 and January 2018. Patients’ demographic profile and hernia characteristics (duration, side, extent, content, and reducibility) were noted in the prestructured proforma. Clinical outcomes included the operation time, intraoperative and postoperative complications, length of postoperative hospital stay, hernia recurrence, chronic pain, recurrence, seroma, and wound infections. Long-term follow-up was carried out in the outpatient departme...
This study is a multicentre randomised controlled clinical trial. From November 2012 to May 2015, 193 patients undergoing LIVHR for primary incisional hernia with fascial defect size from 2 to 7 cm were recruited in 11 Finnish hospitals. Patients were randomised to either a laparoscopic (LG) or a hybrid (HG) repair group. The main outcome measure was hernia recurrence, evaluated clinically and radiologically at a 1-year follow-up visit. At the same time, chronic pain scores and QoL were a lso measured.ResultsAt the 1-year-control visit, we found no difference in hernia recurrence between the study groups. Altogether,...
Conclusion: In this series of 32 cases, laparoscopic cruroplasty with UBM graft reinforcement has been effective and durable at 12 months of followup. This technique may offer one satisfactory solution for large hiatal hernia repair concomitant with laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy that may achieve a durable repair with low GERD symptoms.

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.
Objective: Improvement of ventral hernia repair. Background: Despite the use of mesh and other recent improvements, the currently popular techniques of ventral hernia repair have specific disadvantages and risks. Methods: We developed the endoscopically assisted mini- or less-open sublay (MILOS) concept. The operation is performed transhernially via a small incision with light-holding laparoscopic instruments either under direct, or endoscopic visualization. An endoscopic light tube was developed to facilitate this approach (EndotorchTM Wolf Company). Each MILOS operation can be converted to standard total extraper...
ConclusionSynchronous VHR and BS in a bariatric unit is feasible with low recurrence rate. Laparoscopic VHR has lower complication rates than open, apart from seroma formation. Patients with diabetes have higher risk of infection.
ConclusionsPatients receiving self-fixating mesh report worse postoperative pain in the first 2 –3 days than those receiving non-fixating mesh. The groups showed no differences across QoL metrics (SOMS and CCS) at 3 weeks or 1 year postoperatively. Self-fixating mesh does not appear to positively impact QoL after TEP LIHR.
