Totally extraperitoneal inguinal hernia repair with or without fixation leads to similar results. Outcome of randomized prospective trial.
Conclusions: Lack of fixation in TEP-IHR does not increase the risk of hernia recurrence, and its presence does not significantly worsen the treatment results; especially it does not increase the incidence of chronic pain.

Infiltration of bupivacaine into the preperitoneal space and trocar incisions of patients undergoing laparoscopic totally extraperitoneal repair of unilateral inguinal hernia: a prospective randomized controlled observational study.
Authors: Çolak Ş, Akkuş Ö, Gürbulak B, Çakar E, Bektaş H Abstract Introduction: Although laparoscopic repair of inguinal hernia is associated with reduced postoperative pain, it is not entirely painless. In addition to reducing the need for analgesic medication, postoperative complications, and hospitalization, postoperative pain control enables early return to normal activity. Aim: To evaluate the efficacy of bupivacaine instilled into the pre-peritoneal space and trocar incisions of patients undergoing laparoscopic totally extraperitoneal (TEP) repair of inguinal hernia.

Intraoperative and early postoperative complications in women with stress urinary incontinence treated with suburethral slings: a randomised trial.
Conclusions: TVT and TOT procedures are characterised by a high cure rate and improvement in the post-operative quality of life. However, it seems that the transobturator approach should be the preferred method of treatment of SUI due to the reduced risk of complications, shorter procedure time, and lower intraoperative blood loss.

Excision of a part of the bile duct as an iatrogenic injury typical for laparoscopic cholecystectomy - characteristics, treatment and long-term results, based on own material.
We present an analysis of long-term results of the treatment of patients who underwent operations at our department due to iatrogenic excision of a part of the bile duct (EPBD). Material and methods: Out of all 120 patients treated for BDI in our department we selected a group of 40 with EPBD. In all cases the corrective operation was hepaticojejunostomy. The median follow-up time was 157 (56-249) months. We evaluated risk factors for EPBD during LC compared to open cholecystectomy (OC). Results: Among bile duct injuries referred to our centre, EPBD occurred more frequently during LC (46.7%) compared to OC (11%), p
