Does the use of monopolar energy as the preferred mode of dissection effectively reduce seroma formation in laparoscopic total extra peritoneal hernioplasty? A prospective double-blinded randomized control trial

ConclusionPre-peritoneal drainage is clinically safe in laparoscopic totally extra-peritoneal hernioplasty and can effectively reduce the size and incidence of seroma. The seroma formation can be further reduced by appropriate use of monopolar energy as preferred dissection approach in lap TEP. Due to limitation in measuring the actual energy time, the result should be further validated by randomized multi-centers trial on its potential benefit in hernia repair by a more accurate measuring device on energy used.

Objectives: To evaluate comparative outcomes of spinal anesthesia (SA) and general anesthesia (GA) during laparoscopic total extraperitoneal (TEP) repair of inguinal hernia. Methods: We systematically searched MEDLINE, EMBASE, CINAHL, CENTRAL, the World Health Organization International Clinical Trials Registry, ClinicalTrials.gov, ISRCTN Register, and bibliographic reference lists. We applied a combination of free text and controlled vocabulary search adapted to thesaurus headings, search operators and limits in each of the above databases. Postoperative pain assessed by visual analogue scale (VAS), individual and ov...

CONCLUSIONS: Robotic inguinal hernia repair is safe and effective. 1) Proper training, including simulators and proctors, is necessary; 2) having the same operating room team and an interested first assistant at the OR table is very helpful; 3) the learning curve is about 50 patients; 4) postoperative narcotics are rarely more than three hydrocodone pills; 4) no fixation of the mesh is necessary, but fibrin sealant was used routinely in these patients; and 5) urinary retention is the most common postoperative issue and is best planned for by knowing the patients urinary history, use of peripheral alpha-blockers, and straig...

Marija Toleska, Aleksandar DimitrovskiIndian Journal of Anaesthesia 2020 64(5):428-431 Opioid-free anaesthesia (OFA) is an anaesthetic technique where non-opioid drugs are used in the intraoperative period. It can be successful without using alpha-2 agonists, which are main drugs used in this multimodal anaesthesia. We are presenting seven different cases where OFA was used in different abdominal surgeries (laparoscopic cholecystectomy, colon cancer operation, and laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair) alone or in a combination with epidural anaesthesia and peripheral nerve block. Prior induction to general anaesthesia all ...

Authors: Tamura T, Kaneko K, Yokota S, Kitao T, Ando M, Kubo Y, Nishiwaki K Abstract This randomized, observer-blinded prospective study aimed to compare the postoperative analgesic effects of ultrasound-guided rectus sheath block with those of local anesthetic infiltration of the surgical field in children undergoing inguinal hernia repair. Children aged 2 to 14 years, scheduled for elective single-incision laparoscopic percutaneous extraperitoneal closure, were randomly allocated to receive ultrasound-guided rectus sheath block (group R) or local anesthetic infiltration of the surgical field (group L). In group R...

CONCLUSION: In patients undergoing ambulatory laparoscopic surgery using a perioperative multimodal analgesic regimen, pain was the limiting factor for discharge in 1% of patients operated in an ambulatory set-up.

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 ...

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]

The ultrasound-guided transversus abdominis plane (TAP) block or TAP block is a well-established regional anesthetic block used by anesthesiologists for peri-operative pain control of the anterior abdominal wall. Multiple studies have demonstrated its utility to control pain for a range of procedures from inguinal hernia repair, laparoscopic cholecystectomies to cesarean sections [1-3]. There are no cases describing the efficacy of the ultrasound-guided TAP block in the emergency department as a part of a multimodal pain pathway for patients diagnosed with acute appendicitis.
