PURPOSE: The advantages of biological meshes for ventral hernia repair are still under debate. Given the high financial cost, the proper indications for biological meshes should be clarified to restrict their use to properly selected patients. METHODS: A retrospective database was instituted to register all cases of abdominal wall defect treated with biological meshes from 1/2010 to 3/2016. RESULTS: A total of 227 patients (mean age: 64 years) whose ventral abdominal defects were reconstructed with a biological mesh were included in the study...

PURPOSE: Repair of giant paraoesophageal herniae (GPEH) is technically challenging and requires significant experience in advanced foregut surgery. Controversy continues on suture versus mesh cruroplasty with the most recent systematic review and meta-analysis putting the onus on the operating surgeon. Study aim was to review whether the biological prosthesis (non-cross-linked bovine pericardium and porcine dermis) and the technique adopted for patients with GPEH had an influence on clinical and radiological recurrences...

PURPOSE: Chronic pain and discomfort are common before and after inguinal hernia repair (IHR) and pain is clearly linked to reduced quality of life (QoL). The long-term effect of IHR on QoL in relation to preoperative symptoms is incompletely described. METHODS: 309 men (18-75 years) undergoing IHR under local anesthesia and day care surgery were included. Pre- and postoperative symptoms, pain and QoL (SF-36) were measured before and up to 3 years after surgery...

PURPOSE: A generally known risk factor for developing chronic postoperative inguinal pain after inguinal hernia repair is young age. However, studies discussing young age as a risk factor are mainly based on open repairs. The aim of this study was to determine if young adults (age 18-30) are also more prone to experience chronic postoperative inguinal pain after totally extraperitoneal (TEP) inguinal hernia repair, compared to older adults (age ≥ 31). METHODS: A prospective study was conducted in a high-volume TEP hernia clinic in 919 patients...

BACKGROUND: Surgical repair is recommended for all children with inguinal hernia due to fear of incarceration. The aim of this study was to assess the risk of incarceration and strangulation of inguinal hernias in children treated with delayed surgery or no surgery. METHODS: Systematic searches were conducted in three databases. We included studies reporting on children with inguinal hernia, with the majority ≤ 10 years old. The interventions were non-acute inguinal hernia surgery or no surgery...

PURPOSE: Elective repair of large incisional hernias using posterior component separation with transversus abdominis release (TAR) has acceptable wound morbidity and long-term recurrence rates. The outcomes of using this reconstructive technique in the non-elective setting remains unknown. We aim to report 30-day outcomes of TAR in non-elective settings. METHODS: All patients undergoing open TAR in non-elective settings were identified within the Americas Hernia Society Quality Collaborative (AHSQC)...

PURPOSE: Lateral lymph node dissection (LLND) is performed for advanced lower rectal cancer (ALRC) in Japan. The LLND in laparotomy is performed via the extraperitoneal approach, which is similar to radical retropubic prostatectomy (RRP). Inguinal hernias (IHs) appearing after RRP are common. However, there are few reports about IHs appearing after LLND. METHODS: In part A, we retrospectively investigated 108 patients who underwent LLND for ALRC between January 2004 and December 2014...

PURPOSE: General anesthesia has been used as a standard type of anesthesia for laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair by the transabdominal preperitoneal (TAPP) approach, regional anesthesia being occasionally used in high-risk patients. We had previously designed a controlled randomized trial, comparing spinal with general anesthesia in non-high-risk patients undergoing TAPP inguinal hernia repair. Our results suggested that spinal anesthesia offers some advantages in postoperative pain and additional opioid consumption during the early postoperative period...

PURPOSE: Recent work has shown that over 40% of patients undergoing surgery for abdominal malignancy develop ventral incisional hernias (VIH) within 2 years. We hypothesized that early repair of VIH for cancer survivors could improve long-term quality of life (QoL). METHODS: All patients presenting with a history of surgery for abdominal malignancy and a VIH were prospectively enrolled. QoL was assessed at baseline and 3-, 6-, 12-, 18-, and 24-month follow-up using abdominal wall-specific (HerQLes) and cancer-specific (FACT-G) instruments...

PURPOSE: Ventral hernia repair with concurrent panniculectomy (VHR-PAN) is associated with high wound complication rates despite reported increased patient satisfaction. Some surgeons believe negative-pressure therapy after primary closure of the surgical incision (ciNPT) may lower wound complications in high-risk abdominal wounds. This study aims to evaluate if ciNPT improves outcomes in patients undergoing VHR-PAN. METHODS: An 8-year retrospective cohort study was performed on patients who underwent VHR-PAN...

BACKGROUND: Transversus abdominis release (TAR), as a type of posterior component separation, is a new myofascial release technique in complex ventral hernia repair. TAR preserves rectus muscle innervation, creates an immense retromuscular plane and allows bilaminar ingrowth of the mesh. The place of the TAR within the range of established anterior component separation techniques (CST) is unclear. Aim of this systematic literature review is to estimate the position of the TAR in the scope of ventral hernia repair techniques...

PURPOSE: de Garengeot's hernia is a rare entity in which the appendix is located within a femoral hernia and is almost invariably encountered incarcerated in an emergency setting with concomitant appendicitis. In the literature, there are mostly single-case reports. The purpose of the present study was to perform a review of the literature to study the incidence, pathogenesis, demographics, clinical presentation, laboratory and radiological investigations, differential diagnosis, delay in diagnosis and treatment, operative findings, surgical technique, histological findings, the postoperative course, use of antibiotics, and complications regarding de Garengeot's hernia...

PURPOSE: One of the most important measures of success of open inguinal herniorrhaphy is the incidence of recurrence. Reports suggest that up to 13% of all inguinal hernia repairs worldwide, irrespective of the approach, are repaired for recurrence. The reason as to why inguinal hernias recur is most likely multifactorial. The aim of this review is to evaluate the risk factors responsible for these recurrences in open suture and mesh techniques. METHODS: A search of the Medline, Embase, Science Citation Index, Current Contents and PubMed databases identified English language, peer-reviewed articles on the causes of recurrence following open inguinal herniorrhaphy published between 1990 and 2018...
