Chronic groin pain (CGP), defined as pain beyond two months, is a rare but potentially debilitating complication of inguinal hernia repair. CGP etiologies include neuropathic, mesh-related, hernia-related, musculoskeletal, and urologic. Treatment options depend on the nature of the pain. Preoperative history, physical exam and imaging studies can help elucidate the cause, while surgical exploration and interventions are sometimes required. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the outcomes following CGP surgical treatment.

Total pancreatectomy with islet autotransplantation (TPIAT) is a definitive treatment option in appropriately selected patients with debilitating acute recurrent pancreatitis (ARP) or chronic pancreatitis (CP) by providing pain relief and an improved quality of life.[1 –6] The secondary goal of TPIAT is to mitigate the challenges of post-pancreatectomy diabetes by autotransplanting the isolated islets into the portal system. While inherent patient and disease characteristics determine who may achieve postoperative insulin independence, with the most consistent p redictor being transplanted islet mass, the physiologic...

In the wake of multiple legal challenges, the Biden Administration late last month aimed to fortify the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program with a new rule that would shield more than 600,000 undocumented people brought to the U.S. by their parents. While proponents of the program welcomed the move and heralded it an “effort to bulletproof the DACA program,” our response in this moment overlooks a fundamental problem: each challenge on immigration—whether the Muslim Ban, family separation, or challenging DACA—takes a toll on refugee and migrants through vicarious trauma and weather...
