A transverse abdominis plane (TAP) block is one option in the management of chronic groin pain after inguinal hernia repair. Steroid-induced lipoatrophy following local injection is an infrequent complication of this procedure, but can be distressing to patients when it does occur. A 36-year-old male patient of ours sustained this rare procedural complication and underwent successful reversal of the lipoatrophy through serial intralesional isotonic saline injections. The serial intralesional injection of isotonic saline is technically simple and may be an effective means of treating lipoatrophy. Pain specialists may opt to...

CONCLUSIONS: The incidence of chronic pain in pediatrics is substantial and is estimated to be around 20%. Orchialgia remains difficult and problematic to treat. Mental health diagnoses such as anxiety and depression are also significantly associated with chronic pain. Following consideration and implementation of steps for all these concerns, a diagnostic block and microsurgical denervation led to successful resolution of chronic testicular pain in a pediatric patient.PMID:34291422 | DOI:10.1007/s12630-021-02072-5

Chirurg. 2021 Jun 29. doi: 10.1007/s00104-021-01446-1. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTThe treatment of inguinal hernias with open and minimally invasive procedures has reached a high standard in terms of outcome over the past 30 years. However, there is still need for further improvement, mainly in terms of reduction of postoperative seroma, chronic pain, and recurrence. This video article presents the endoscopic anatomy of the groin with regard to robotic transabdominal preperitoneal patch plasty (r‑TAPP) and illustrates the surgical steps of r‑TAPP with respective video sequences. The results of a cohort study of 302 ...

ConclusionThe long-term outcomes of S-TEP repair were comparable to those of M-TEP, with rates of recurrence, chronic pain, feeling the mesh, and movement limitation falling within acceptable limits.

Conclusion: Adding to known data, we observed no significant difference in postoperative pain, demonstrating that cyanoacrylate glue is a viable and safe alternative fixation method to absorbable tacks in laparoscopic TEP IHR. As secondary outcomes, cyanoacrylate glue permits some patients to return to work early, and we observed regular lateral mesh glue fixation without increased pain or complications.

CONCLUSIONS: Currently none of the techniques can be considered superior to any other, because the certainty of evidence was low or very low for all outcomes.PMID:34046884 | DOI:10.1002/14651858.CD011563.pub2
