PURPOSE AND METHODS: Femoral hernia repairs have been done classically with three different open approaches, namely the Lockwood's (LW), Lotheissen's (LT) and McEvedy's (ME) approaches. Current literature has yet provided any definite conclusion over the best approach in emergency situations. This study aims to evaluate and compare the operative outcomes of these three approaches in emergency situations by retrospectively analyzing 190 cases (76 ME, 33 LT, 81 LW) in 13 years at a regional surgical center...

OBJECTIVES: The use of absorbable polylactic acid hook self-gripping polypropylene mesh in open inguinal hernia may potentially reduce operative time and enhance patient recovery. The objective of this randomized trial is to compare the outcomes following self-gripping mesh repair to polypropylene mesh secured with sutures in open inguinal hernioplasty. METHOD: Eligible patients aged 18-80 years old, who had primary unilateral uncomplicated inguinal hernia, were randomized into either Polypropylene (PL) group or PROGRIP (PG) group just before the placement of mesh intra-operatively by computer generated code...

INTRODUCTION: The use of alloplastic implants for tissue strengthening when treating hernias is an established therapy worldwide. Despite the high incidence of hernias in Africa and Asia, the implantation of costly mesh netting is not financially feasible. Because of that various investigative groups have examined the use of sterilized mosquito netting. The animal experiments as well as the clinical trials have both shown equivalent short- and long-term results. The goal of this paper is the comparison of biocompatibility of human fibroblasts on the established commercially available nets and on sterilized polyester mosquito mesh over a period of 12 weeks...

BACKGROUND: Ventral hernia repair (VHR) is a commonly performed operation, but analysis of patient outcomes based upon hernia size is lacking. We sought to identify differences in operative repair and post-operative morbidity and mortality after open VHR based on hernia defect size. METHODS: Patient and operative data were retrospectively reviewed on all patients undergoing open incisional VHR between January 2008 and February 2015 by a single surgeon at the Johns Hopkins Hospital...

BACKGROUND: In ventral hernia repair, when prosthetic material is placed intraperitoneally, it may lead to an inflammatory reaction resulting in adhesions between the mesh and abdominal viscera. Several meshes have been developed to minimize this process. In this experimental study, the ability of different combined meshes to attenuate the adhesion formation was examined. METHODS: Three commercially available lightweight porous combined meshes were placed intraperitoneally to repair an abdominal wall defect in rats: DynaMesh-IPOM (PVDF + PP), TiMesh (titanium-coated filament PP) and C-QUR/FX (omega-3 fatty acid-coated filament PP)...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to assess the extent of reoperations after hernia repair in Denmark that are being performed at a different facility than the primary repair and thereby investigate whether or not reoperation is a reliable basis for assessment of personal- or facility recurrence rates. METHODS: On a national level, we included all groin hernia repairs that had been reoperated a least once from January 1, 1998, to August 19, 2015. RESULTS: A total of 14,264 hernia repairs were included comprising a total of 7371 reoperations...

PURPOSE: Anterior abdominal wall hernias are among the most commonly encountered surgical disease. We sought to identify risk factors that are associated with 30-day postoperative mortality following emergent abdominal wall hernia repair using the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (ACS NSQIP) database. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of data from the ACS NSQIP from 2005 to 2010 was performed. Patients were selected using Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) and International Classification of Disease 9 Clinical Modification (ICD9) codes for the repair of inguinal, femoral, umbilical, epigastric, ventral, or incisional hernias that were incarcerated, obstructed, strangulated, or gangrenous...

PURPOSE: Adrenal ectopy is a rare condition, caused by abnormal embryological development of the adrenal glands and testis. This anomaly is asymptomatic and is generally diagnosed in childhood. Most cases of adrenal ectopy of the groin region have been found incidentally during surgery. This review aims to evaluate the incidence of adrenal ectopy of the adult groin region, as well as its short- and long-term significance. METHODS: A systematic literature search was performed using the EMBASE, MEDLINE, PubMed and Cochrane Central databases to identify all studies published until December 2015...

PURPOSE: Single-port laparoscopic herniorrhaphy is widely employed for indirect inguinal hernia repair in children. However, few surgeons utilize the single-port technique to repair such hernias with concealed deferent ducts. The aim of this study was to assess the application of the modified single-port laparoscopic technique (MSPT) in cases with concealed deferent ducts and to compare the results to those obtained with the two-port technique (TPT). METHODS: Between January 2006 and January 2012, all consecutive cases were retrospectively studied...

PURPOSE: The open abdomen has become a standard technique in the management of critically ill patients undergoing surgery for severe intra-abdominal conditions. Negative pressure and mesh-mediated fascial traction are commonly used and achieve low fistula rates and high fascial closure rates. In this study, long-term results of a standardised treatment approach are presented. METHODS: Fifty-five patients who underwent OA management for different indications at our institution from 2006 to 2013 were enrolled...

S Öberg, K Andresen, J Rosenberg
PURPOSE: Guidelines recommend that the reoperation of a recurrent inguinal hernia should be by the opposite approach (anterior-posterior) than the primary repair. However, the level of evidence supporting the guidelines is partially low. The purpose of this study was to compare re-reoperation rates between repairs performed according to the guidelines with the ones performed against it. METHODS: This cohort study was based on the Danish Hernia Database, including 4344 patients with two inguinal hernia repairs in the same groin...
