Evaluating a low-fidelity inguinal canal model

ConclusionThe present study supports current literature in that low-fidelity anatomy models are a useful adjunct to aid students ’ learning of complex anatomical concepts. Students may benefit from creating their own inguinal canal model to retain as a personal study tool.

ConclusionA review of patient outcomes after hybrid AWR highlights a trend towards shorter length of stay, lower hospital cost, and fewer complications without significant addition to operative time. Long-term studies on a larger number of patients are definitively needed to characterize the comprehensive benefits of this approach.

AbstractIntroductionMagnetic sphincter augmentation (MSA) is a safe and effective treatment for patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). MSA was initially indicated for patients with GERD and concomitant hiatal hernias    2 cm) on videoesophagram or endoscopy.ResultsSeventy-nine patients (53% female) with a median age of 65.56 (58.42 –69.80) years were included. Median follow up was 2.98 (interquartile range 1.90–3.32) years. Median DeMeester scores decreased from 42.45 (29.12–60.73) to 9.10 (3.05–24.30) (p

CONCLUSIONS: Post-esophagectomy paraconduit hernia is more common following totally minimally invasive esophagectomy compared with open or hybrid techniques. One-third are symptomatic and the remainder detected only radiographically. Repair of asymptomatic hernias should take into consideration the patient's cancer prognosis.

Large complicated ventral hernias (LCVH) are challenging, with recurrence rates as high as 30%. Despite the widespread use of bioprosthetic meshes, there remains a substantial concern for associated complications, leading to the continued mesh modifications such as the inclusion of fenestrated platforms that allow flow and more rapid tissue integration. However, there is an absence of high-quality prospective studies analyzing such meshes. Our objective was to evaluate the effectiveness of a bovine acellular dermal tissue matrix with perforations for abdominal wall reinforcement in patients with LCVH.
