Single-incision retroperitoneal laparoscopic repair of superior lumbar hernia using self-fixating ProGrip mesh: A case report
ConclusionWe successfully performed single-incision retroperitoneal laparoscopic repair of superior lumbar hernia using self-fixating mesh.
Authors: Nikolian VC, Coleman NL, Podolsky D, Novitsky YW Abstract Ventral hernia repair is one of the most common operations performed by surgeons worldwide. The widespread adoption of laparoscopic surgery has significantly reduced complications related to traditional open approaches. The most common approach in laparoscopic ventral hernia repair is the intraperitoneal onlay mesh (IPOM) approach. This technique, though simple to perform, has limitations, including bridging mesh, intraperitoneal positioning of mesh, transfascial fixation, circumferential mesh fixation, and the use of more expensive composite mesh m...
The use of the robotic platform for primary inguinal hernia repair has been a controversial topic. In this issue of JAMA Surgery, the multicenter, pilot clinical trial by Prabhu et al is, to our knowledge, the first of its kind to compare outcomes of laparoscopic and robotic transabdominal preperitoneal inguinal hernia repair. The study showed no differences in postoperative outcomes between the 2 techniques, with the robotic approach incurring significantly greater operative times, total costs, and surgeon frustration. Despite the limitations of the small sample size and potential variations in the proficiency of the part...
CONCLUSIONS: Implementation of eTEP in abdominal wall repair is safe. Preliminary outcomes of the eTEP approach in ventral hernia repair show good pain control with less hospital stay. PMID: 32172955 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusion: Transfascial suture fixation of mesh in TEP repair of inguinal hernia can be a cost-effective procedure with a comparable safety profile as compared to tack fixation.
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.
ConclusionLaparoscopic TARM with PPM in sublay avoids mesh –bowel contact. It provides midline closure and PCS-TAR within the same port geometry with results comparable with ORS.
ConclusionMLH repair seems to be safely feasible by laparoscopic surgery. The benefit of mesh augmentation in MLH repair is not clear yet. In contrast to the current literature, all patients in this study received mesh augmentation after primary closure of the hernia. This should be evaluated in larger patient cohorts with long-term follow-up.
ConclusionThis retrospective study shows that mesh fixation in laparoscopic IPOM using cyanoacrylate glue with the Liquiband Fix8 ™ device is feasible, safe, easy to learn, and is associated with a low risk of seroma, hernia recurrence and chronic pain with short-medium term follow-up.
ConclusionSurgeons performing laparoscopic excisional biopsy of the diaphragmatic peritoneum should consider the potential risk for iatrogenic diaphragmatic hernias.
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 b...
