Robotic vs Laparoscopic Hernia Repair: Early Outcomes
Early adopters of robotic hernia repair have commonly approached small hernias for repair as comfort increased on the platform. We aim to investigate the early temporal outcomes of the robot assisted hernia repairs.
ConclusionIn our hands, a significantly higher recurrence rate exists for children undergoing the PIRS method over LICPV techniques when treating inguinal hernias.
Robotic-assisted laparoscopic surgery (RALS) is evolving as an important surgical approach in the field of general surgery. We aimed to evaluate the learning curve for RALS procedures involving repair of hiatal hernias.
This study aimed to evaluate the acute pain, chronic pain, and recurrence rate between these two fixation methods.MethodsAfter reviewing all patients in our prospective hernia repair database from February 2008 to December 2017, we identified 583 patients who underwent TEP with tack mesh fixation and 70 patients with glue fixation by a single surgeon. Acute post-operative pain and activity level were evaluated using a Visual Analog Score (VAS) and the modified Medical Outcome Study (MOS) score. The primary endpoint was chronic pain 6 months after TEP. The secondary endpoints were acute pain, activity level, complications, ...
AbstractBackgroundBurnia is a suturless repair for inguinal hernias in girls. It is performed under laparoscopy by grabbing the sac, inverting it into the peritoneal cavity, and cauterizing. The aim of this study is to report our experience with single-site laparoscopic burnia (BURNIA) and compare them with open repair (OPEN).MethodsWith IRB approval, pediatric female patients younger than 18 years of age who underwent inguinal hernia repair between January 2015 and December 2017 were enrolled. Medical records were retrospectively reviewed. The patients were divided into two groups, BURNIA and OPEN.Results198 patient...
Conclusione-TEP is an evolving procedure and comparable to IPOM Plus in terms of postoperative pain, analgesic requirement, cost of mesh, and length of hospital stay. More randomized controlled and multicentric studies are required with longer follow-up to validate our findings.
This study was a retrospective review of a prospectively maintained hernia registry from the 1st of February 2019 to 29th of February 2020.Results353 ventral hernia repair cases were recorded of which 47% were incisional hernias and the remainder were primary hernias. The median age was 54 years with even distribution of males and females. Half of the patients were obese with a median BMI of 31 kg/m2. The private sector performed 190 cases (54%) and the public sector 163 cases (46%). The public sector had more current smokers undergoing elective repairs, 28% vs 15%,p = 0.01 and performed more emerg...

Conclusion: Soakage of mesh in 0.5% bupivacaine solution before application in laparoscopic ventral hernia repair significantly reduces early post-operative pain. Trial Registration: Trial was registered with clinicaltrials. gov (NCT03035617) URL: https://clinicaltrials. gov
ConclusionES-ACS resulted in no atrophy of the lateral abdominal muscles in long-term CT follow-up. The procedure is a safe and effective adjunct to complex hernia repair in selected patients.
Synchronous bilateral hernias are very rare, and subclinical hernias as this case are very difficult to diagnose preoperatively. Laparoscopic surgery, which can accurately confirm and reinforce the weakened bilateral inguinal region, was very useful.
