Inguinal hernia repair in patients under and over 65 years of age: a district general hospital experience.

CONCLUSIONS: Despite more comorbidities in the over 65s, this study shows that there is no significant difference in complication rates between laparoscopic and open inguinal hernia repair irrespective of age category. Selection bias for the type of repair and the potential for an alpha error mean larger studies are required to show equivalence. PMID: 32243111 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusion: We describe the successful use of a simple, low risk, and technique modification of the "gasket seal" technique adapted to the clivus that allows for hard reconstruction and facilitates placement of the nasoseptal flap. PMID: 32494378 [PubMed]

This study demonstrated that UCMSCs inhibited the cytotoxic effect of AGE in cells from patients with POP by inducing an anti-inflammatory reaction and activating the PI3K/AKT/PTEN signaling pathway. The current results provide important insights into use of stem cells to treat POP. PMID: 32493859 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

We present a surgical cystectomy technique that correctly identifies the cleavage plane with a low risk of ovarian cyst rupture, even in patients with multicystic ovarian cysts. Cystectomy was performed using Maryland forceps with gentle open and close dissecting motions only. Both the surgeon and assistant handled the ovarian cortex and cyst wall, and soft traction between the cortex and cyst wall as far as the nearby dissection plane without grasping the cyst wall was essential. In patients with multicystic ovarian cysts, making a plane at the notch between cysts decreases the risk of cyst rupture. This technique allows ...

In conclusion, cystectomy significantly increases the risk of cycle cancellation due to poor ovarian response, which might be catastrophic individually. However, it does not seem to affect the live birth rates.IMPACT STATEMENTWhat is already known on this subject? Both the presence of an endometrioma or surgical removal may have deleterious effects on fertility potential.What do the results of this study add? Our results confirm that although cystectomy has no benefit on the number of oocytes collected and live birth rate, it increases the risk of cycle cancellation significantly in assisted reproductive technology cycles ...

This study investigated the relationship between adiposity and blood pressure (BP) by CKD status. Materials and Methods: South Africans of mixed-ancestry (n=1,621) were included. Estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) was based on the modification of diet in renal disease (MDRD) equation, and CKD defined as eGFR

ConclusionsOur early results with TAR are encouraging. We have demonstrated that the repair allows anatomical reconstruction with a large sublay mesh while inflicting minimal morbidity. TAR can be a valuable tool in complex ventral hernia repair.

This study evaluates the relationship of PA to outcomes after open ventral hernia repair (OVHR).MethodsA prospective institutional database was queried for patients undergoing OVHR. Demographics, operative characteristics, and outcomes were evaluated by the reported PA and the administration of beta-lactam prophylaxis (BLP).ResultsAllergy histories were reviewed in 1178 patients. PA was reported in 21.6% of patients, with 55.5% reporting rash or hives, 15.0% airway compromise or anaphylaxis, and 29.5% no specific reaction. BLP was administered to 76.3% of patients, including 22.1% of PA patients and 89.9% of patients witho...
