BACKGROUND: While performing unilateral TEP herniorrhaphy, controversy still exists about whether to do contralateral exploration or not. Routine contralateral exploration has been proposed to prevent metachronous contralateral hernias by the repair of incidental contralateral occult hernias. Some surgeons have even proposed to do prophylactic bilateral TEP herniorrhaphy for unilateral hernia patients. To evaluate the appropriateness of not doing contralateral exploration in unilateral TEP herniorrhaphy, we reviewed our experiences under our practice of no contralateral exploration and we also reviewed other published literature...

INTRODUCTION: Postoperative wound events following ventral hernia repair are an important outcome measure. While efforts have been made by hernia surgeons to identify and address risk factors for postoperative wound events following VHR, the definition of these events lacks standardization. Therefore, the purpose of our study was to detail the variability of wound event definitions in recent ventral hernia literature and to propose standardized definitions for postoperative wound events following VHR...

PURPOSE: This study was aimed to describe the technique of the modified trans-umbilical two-port laparoscopic suturing (M-TTLS), and show its feasibility and efficacy to treat pediatric inguinal hernia (PIH). METHODS: After general anesthesia, the patient was placed in the Trendelenburg position. Two trocars were set on umbilicus and a pneumoperitoneum was established at 8-12 mmHg. Under direct vision, a long syringe needle was punctured into the preperitoneal space above the internal inguinal ring (IIR)...

PURPOSE: Abdominal wall defects caused by neoplasms with large extended resection defects remain a challenging problem. Autologous flaps, meshes, and component separation techniques are effective in reconstructing these defects. We retrospectively reviewed and assessed the success of reconstruction using tensor fascia lata flap with or without meshes. METHODS: 18 patients with abdominal wall neoplasms were identified during the period from 2007 to 2016. A retrospective review of office charts and hospital records was performed...

PURPOSE: Recurrence rates after femoral hernia repair (FHR) have not been reliably established in the USA. We sought to determine this trend over time. METHODS: The proportion of primary and recurrent FHRs was determined for patients age ≥ 18 from: ACS-NSQIP (1/2005-12/2014), Premier (1/2010-09/2015), and institutional (1/2005-12/2014) data. Trends were analyzed using a one-tailed Cochran-Armitage test. RESULTS: In the NSQIP database, 6649 patients underwent a FHR...

PURPOSE: Adolescent inguinal hernias are treated using high ligation or posterior wall suture repair with laparoscopic mesh implantation. This study aimed to evaluate the efficacy of laparoscopic intracorporeal posterior wall suture repair without mesh implantation for treating adolescent indirect inguinal hernias. METHODS: Laparoscopic herniorrhaphy was performed between September 2012 and April 2015 in 244 patients aged 11-18 years who were diagnosed with indirect inguinal hernias at Damsoyu Hospital, Seoul, Korea...

PURPOSE: The feasibility and potential advantages of laparoscopic diagnosis and repair of incarcerated obturator hernia (OH) is debated. The aim of this retrospective study was to compare short-term complications comparing laparoscopic to open repair of OH. METHODS: A total of 29 preoperatively diagnosed patients underwent surgery for a preoperatively diagnosed OH between January 2006 and July 2017. The patients were divided into a laparoscopic group (11 patients underwent laparoscopic repair; 8 without and 3 with intestinal resection) and an open group (18 patients who underwent open repair; 9 without and 9 with intestinal resection)...

INTRODUCTION: Although many surgeons have adopted the use of biologic and biosynthetic meshes in complex abdominal wall hernia repair, others have questioned the use of these products. Criticism is addressed in several review articles on the poor standard of studies reporting on the use of biologic meshes for different abdominal wall repairs. The aim of this consensus review is to conduct an evidence-based analysis of the efficacy of biologic and biosynthetic meshes in predefined clinical situations...

PURPOSE: Ventral hernia repair is one of the most frequently performed surgical procedures, though recurrences are common. Recurrence can be caused by impaired collagen formation or maturation; hence, patients with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) are potentially at increased risk for hernia recurrence. EDS causes altered collagen metabolism, though little is known about the influence of EDS on ventral hernioplasty outcomes. This study aims to analyze these patients to report complication rates, recurrence rates, and, if possible, to give recommendations for surgical intervention...

PURPOSE: Inguinal disruption, a common condition in athletes, is a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of endoscopic totally extraperitoneal (TEP) repair in athletes with inguinal disruption, selected through a multidisciplinary, systematic work-up. METHODS: An observational, prospective cohort study was conducted in 32 athletes with inguinal disruption. Athletes were assessed by a sports medicine physician, radiologist and hernia surgeon and underwent subsequent endoscopic TEP repair with placement of polypropylene mesh...

PURPOSE: To review the published data describing the incidence, etiology, management, and outcomes of flank hernia. METHODS: A retrospective review of articles identified with an online search (using the terms "flank hernia", "flank bulge", "lateral hernia", "retroperitoneal aorta hernia", and "open radical nephrectomy") was performed. Studies exclusively on lumbar hernia or subcostal hernia were excluded. RESULTS: All articles retained for analysis (N = 26) were uncontrolled series or case reports; there were no controlled trials...

BACKGROUND: Chronic post-operative inguinal pain (CPIP) is the most significant complication following inguinal hernia repair. Patients without a palpable hernia prior to surgery seemed to report more CPIP. Our aim was to evaluate the effects of surgery on patients with a clinically inapparent inguinal hernia as diagnosed using ultrasonography. METHODS: A total of 179 hernia repairs in patients with a positive ultrasonography but negative physical examination were analysed retrospectively...

PURPOSE: There is a paucity of high-quality evidence concerning mesh choice in open inguinal hernia repair. Using an expertise-based randomized clinical trial design, we aimed to evaluate the postoperative impact of two different mesh types on pain and discomfort, quality of life and sex life. METHODS: In two regional hospitals, male patients with primary inguinal hernia were randomized to one of two groups of surgeons that performed the Lichtenstein operation. One group of surgeons used a heavyweight polypropylene mesh (90 g/m2, Bard™ Flatmesh, Davol) while the second group employed a lightweight mesh (28 g/m2, ULTRAPRO™, Ethicon)...

PURPOSE: Compare testicular perfusion between the herniated and the healthy side pre- and post-surgery. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Our study was done on patients with unilateral inguinal hernia. A Doppler ultrasound study was performed in the healthy and herniated side before surgery and 3 months after it. RESULTS: 31 patients were included, 74.2% on the right and 25.8% on the left side. When comparing the pre-surgical values of testicular resistance index from the healthy side with those on the herniated side, there was a significant difference at the spermatic cord levels (0...
