Application of computed tomography and abdominal pressure measurement in the treatment of giant incisional hernias.

Conclusion: The proper surgical technique can be established based on the preoperative CT scan. Abdominal wall reconstruction with retromuscular Prolene mesh and hernial sac provides a cheap, reliable, tension-free technique. The technique's short-term efficacy can be determined by abdominal pressure measuring through the bladder. Orv Hetil. 2020; 161(9): 347-353. PMID: 32088976 [PubMed - in process]

ConclusionHernia at the previous stoma site was underdiagnosed. Less than a third of symptomatic patients had a hernia diagnosis in routine follow up. Randomized studies are needed to evaluate if prophylactic mesh can be used to prevent hernias, especially in patients with risk factors.

This study is registered with, NCT02238964.FindingsBetween Nov 28, 2012, and Nov 11, 2015, of 1286 screened patients, 790 were randomly assigned. 394 (50%) patients were randomly assigned to mesh closure and 396 (50%) to standard closure. In the mesh group, 373 (95%) of 394 patients successfully received mesh and in the control group, three patients received mesh. The clinically detectable hernia rate, the primary outcome, at 2 years was 12% (39 of 323) in the mesh group and 20% (64 of 327) in the control group (adjusted relative risk [RR] 0·62, 95% CI 0·43–0·90; p=0·012...

Conclusions: Using a novel approach, we provide details of the esophageal hiatus in patients with various kinds of hiatal hernia. Impaired LES relaxation in paraesophageal hernia may play a role in its pathophysiology and genesis of symptoms. PMID: 31677612 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

DEAR MAYO CLINIC: After a recent CT scan, endoscopy and colonoscopy, I learned that I have a hiatal hernia containing both stomach and colon, and extrinsic stenosis at the splenic flexure. My understanding is that this is rare and that I will need surgery. Will I need to find a surgeon who has seen this [...]

Abstract Lumbar hernias are from weakened areas in the posterior lateral abdominal wall. Minimally invasive techniques are recommended for nonmidline abdominal wall hernias. Endoscopic methods utilizing the subcutaneous space only are rarely reported. A 66-year-old man presented with abdominal pain and a computed tomography (CT) scan revealing a lumbar hernia. The procedure was done utilizing the subcutaneous space to open the hernia sac and repair the defect in layers. A sublay mesh and an onlay mesh were used within the subcutaneous pocket. The patient had an uneventful postoperative course and was discharged ho...
