BACKGROUND: Yearly approximately 4500 umbilical hernias are repaired in The Netherlands, mostly under general anesthesia. The use of local anesthesia has shown several advantages in groin hernia surgery. Local anesthesia might be useful in the treatment of umbilical hernia as well. However, convincing evidence is lacking. We have conducted a systematic review on safety, feasibility, and advantages of local anesthesia for umbilical hernia repair. METHODS: A systematic review was conducted according to the PRISMA guidelines...

BACKGROUND: Spigelian hernias are said to be a rare condition of the elderly population, usually arising below the arcuate line. Local experience has led us to challenge these commonly held beliefs. METHODS: Operations for Spigelian hernia from 2006-2016 were identified from the Edinburgh Lothian Surgical Audit computerised database and case notes were reviewed. RESULTS: One hundred and one patients underwent surgery for 107 Spigelian hernias in the 10-year period...

PURPOSE: Lumbar incisional hernias (LIH) are a rare wall defect, whose surgical management is challenging because no recommendation exists. Moreover, LIH are frequently associated with flank bulging which should be taken into account during LIH surgical repair. We aimed to describe a cohort of patients operated on for LIH using a homogeneous surgical technique and to report surgical outcomes. METHODS: The records of all consecutive patients operated on in a specialized surgical center between January 2009 and January 2015 were retrospectively reviewed...

INTRODUCTION: Open abdomen management has become a well-established strategy in the treatment of serious intra-abdominal pathologies. Key objectives are fistula prevention and high fascial closure rates. The current level of evidence on laparostoma is insufficient. This is due to the rareness of laparostomas, the heterogeneity of study cohorts, and broad diversity of techniques. Collecting data in a standardised, multicentre registry is necessary to draw up evidence-based guidelines. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In order to improve the level of evidence on laparostomy, CAMIN (surgical working group for military and emergency surgery) of DGAV (German Society for General and Visceral Surgery), initiated the implementation of a laparostomy registry...

PURPOSE: Neurectomy of the inguinal nerves may be considered for selected refractory cases of chronic postherniorrhaphy inguinal pain (CPIP). There is to date a paucity of easily applicable clinical tools to identify neuropathic pain and examine the neurosensory effects of remedial surgery. The present quantitative sensory testing (QST) pilot study evaluates a sensory mapping technique. METHODS: Longitudinal (preoperative, immediate postoperative, and late postoperative) dermatomal sensory mapping and a comprehensive QST protocol were conducted in CPIP patients with unilateral, predominantly neuropathic inguinodynia presenting for triple neurectomy (n = 13)...

PURPOSE: Evaluation of potential grafts to improve upon current strategies for abdominal wall (AW) repair in small animal models typically involves mechanical testing using methods that currently are inadequate to assess physiologically relevant parameters. This study introduces burst inflation testing as a more relevant assessment of the mechanical integrity of the AW compared to traditional tensile testing. METHODS: AWs were excised from 14 healthy adult Fischer 344 rats and tested using either a custom burst inflation device or an Instron tensile testing system...

INTRODUCTION: The increasingly more complex nature of hernia surgery means that training programs for young surgeons must now meet ever more stringent requirements. There is a growing demand for improved structuring and standardization of education and training in hernia surgery. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In 2011, the concept of a Hernia School was developed in Germany and has been gradually implemented ever since. That concept comprises the following series of interrelated, tiered course elements: Hernie kompakt (Hernia compact), Hernie konkret (Hernia concrete), and Hernie complex (Hernia complex)...

PURPOSE: The definition of chronic pain after inguinal hernioplasty and the methods of its assessment vary a great deal, which make it complicated to conduct meta-analyses. The primary aim of the present prospective study was to evaluate at which pain severity degree the quality-of-life scores will be reduced. METHOD: A prospective study of patients operated for inguinal hernia was conducted. A pain questionnaire and a quality-of-life (QoL) questionnaire were completed...

S Golani, P Middleton
PURPOSE: From the current evidence, non-fixation of the mesh (NMF) in laparoscopic total extraperitoneal (TEP) repair appears to be a safe alternative for inguinal hernia patients in the short term. This study aims to demonstrate that NMF is as effective in the long term by following up a large number of patients with a mean follow-up of 6 years. The primary outcomes are chronic pain and recurrence rate. METHODS: A thorough review of medical records was conducted from a prospectively maintained database of 538 patients who underwent a laparoscopic TEP inguinal hernia repair by a single surgeon working in Sydney from the year 2005 to 2010...

PURPOSE: The natural history of development of Parastomal hernia (PH) following cystectomy and ileal conduit diversion is poorly understood. The aim of this study was to systematically review the frequency and risk factors of PH following ileal conduit diversion. METHODS: A systematic review of literature was performed and the Cochrane, EMBASE and PubMed databases were searched from 1(st) January 1985 to 30th April 2016. All articles reporting occurrence of PH following cystectomy and ileal conduit diversion were analysed...

BACKGROUND: New biodegradable synthetic and biologic hernia implants have been promoted for rapid integration and tissue reinforcement in challenging repairs, e.g. at the hiatus or in contaminated wound fields. Interestingly, experimental data to support or falsify this assumption is scarce. METHODS: Synthetic (BioA(®)) and biologic implants (porcine and bovine collagen matrices Strattice(®) and Veritas(®)) have been tested in experimental onlay hernia repair in rats in observation periods of 30 and 60 days...

BACKGROUND: Endoscopic pre-peritoneal mesh repair (TEP) through single-incision laparoscopy (SIL) permits placement of a large mesh through a final millimetric umbilical scar. This prospective study evaluates the first 200 consecutive SILTEPs performed by a single surgeon. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Between November 2011 and September 2015, 200 consecutive SILTEPs were performed in 161 patients. The mean age was 49.8 ± 16.3 years and the mean BMI was 24.5 ± 3...

PURPOSE: Patients with large incisional hernias have significant morbidity and their management is a challenge for the surgical team because of the large abdominal wall involvement. The choice of surgical technique is still controversial. The purpose of this study is to analyze the predictive factors for recurrence after intraperitoneal mesh repair in patients with large incisional hernias. METHODS: A retrospective cohort observational study with a prospectively collected database was performed in the Hospital Clinico San Carlos (Madrid, Spain)...

PURPOSE: Prevention of parastomal hernia (PSH) formation is crucial, given the high prevalence and difficulties in the surgical repair of PSH. To investigate the effect of a preventive mesh in PSH formation after an end colostomy, we aimed to meta-analyze all relevant randomized controlled trials (RCTs). METHODS: We searched five databases. For each trial, we extracted risk ratios (RRs) of the effects of mesh or no mesh. The primary outcome was incidence of PSH with a minimum follow-up of 12 months with a clinical and/or computed tomography diagnosis...

BACKGROUND: Complex ventral hernia repair (VHR) is a common surgical operation but carries a risk of complications from surgical site infections (SSI) and occurrences (SSO). We aimed to create a predictive risk score to identify patients at increased risk for SSO or SSI within 30 days of surgery. METHODS: Data were prospectively collected on all patients undergoing VHR between January 2008 and February 2015 by a single surgeon. Multivariable logistic regression was used to identify independent factors predictive of SSO and SSI...

We report a rare case of an incarcerated retroperitoneal hernia with or involving the small bowel through the orifice between the right external and internal iliac vessels. A 39-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital because of vomiting and abdominal pain. She had a history of right oophorocystectomy and appendectomy. Abdominal computed tomography revealed small bowel obstruction resulting from an incarcerated retroperitoneal hernia. The small bowel herniated into the retroperitoneal fossa through the orifice between the right external and internal iliac vessels...

PURPOSE: Choosing the best operative technique for unilateral inguinal hernia is a challenge for surgeons. Therefore, anticipating loss of strength in the lower extremity muscles could be the initial step to make the right decision. To this end, this prospective randomized controlled study compared the physical activity parameters of the lower extremity muscles in patients who underwent total extraperitoneal repair (TEP) and Stoppa repair. METHODS: Fifty patients with unilateral inguinal hernia who were 18-65 years of age were admitted to a single institution in a metropolitan city in Turkey...
