ConclusionsThis is the second case of isolated congenital intercostal pulmonary hernia reported in the French and English literature. It is the first to be treated by thoracoscopy. Based on this case we performed a review of the diagnosis and therapeutic aspect of pulmonary hernias.
ConclusionsThe true incidence of occult contralateral inguinal hernia may be higher than originally thought. When inguinal hernia repair is performed through a transabdominal approach, these occult hernias may be easily addressed during the same operation without additional skin incisions. This may ultimately prevent the morbidity of developing a metachronous hernia that requires repair.
In this study, we observed the effect of HWJND on esophageal morphology in a rat model of ovalbumin (OVA)-induced visceral hypersensitivity followed by acid exposure. Esophageal morphology was assessed by measuring the extent of dilated intercellular spaces (DIS), desmosome disruption, and mitochondrial fragmentation. HWJND in low, moderate, and high doses relieved DIS and desmosome disruption in esophageal epithelium compared with model group (P<0.05 for all doses). In addition, HWJND in high dose protected mitochondria from fragmentation (P<0.05). Other findings suggest that DIS and mitochondrial fragmentation are ...
Conclusions: Successful treatment of GER-associated cough may be associated with the attenuation of neurogenic and neutrophilic inflammation. PMID: 31303089 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
AbstractPurposeWe compared the outcomes of laparoscopic surgery (LS) with those of open surgery (OS) for unilateral and bilateral pediatric inguinal hernia.MethodsUsing a nationwide claim-based database in Japan, we analyzed data from children younger than 15 years old, who underwent inguinal hernia repair between January 2005 and December 2017. Patient characteristics, incidence of reoperation, postoperative complications, length of hospital stay, and duration of anesthesia were compared between LS and OS for unilateral and bilateral hernia.ResultsAmong 5554 patients, 2057 underwent LS (unilateral 1095, bilateral 96...
ConclusionThe introduction of a liquid material which solidifies after injection in a short time (hydrogel) using a needle is feasible. The combined CT-scan and US image guidance allows for the percutaneous placement of the needle in the required location. The introduced hydrogel remains in this space, corresponding to the inguinal region, without moving. The placed hydrogel compresses the posterior wall composed of the transversalis fascia, supporting the potential use of hydrogel for hernia defects.
Internal hernias are well-recognized complications of Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) surgery that arise in consequence of procedure induced mesenteric defects1, 2.
Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is now one of the most common diagnoses made in a gastroenterology practice. From a conventional pathophysiological perspective GERD is conceptualized as incompetence of the antireflux barrier at the esophagogastric junction; the more severe that incompetence, the worse the disease. However, it is increasingly clear that many presentations of GERD represent distinct phenotypes with unique predisposing cofactors and pathophysiology outside of this paradigm. Three major consensus initiatives have grappled with this dilemma (the Montreal Consensus, The Rome Foundation, and the Lyon Conse...
CONCLUSIONS: Only reflux symptoms could be attributed to sliding hiatal hernias. Hiatal hernias less than 2 cm should be considered clinically insignificant. PMID: 29616831 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Anatomically, one of the primary defense mechanisms to prevent gastroesophageal reflux (GER) is an intact gastroesophageal junction (GEJ) that is composed of an overlapping lower esophageal sphincter and diaphragmatic crus (Figure 1). This barrier, if disrupted, can lead to increased GER and symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) including heartburn, chest pain, regurgitation, and extraesophageal symptoms of cough or throat soreness. Prolonged or frequent GER can lead to complications including erosive esophagit is, Barrett’s esophagus, or stricture formation.
