BACKGROUND: The enhanced-view totally extraperitoneal (eTEP) hernia repair technique was first described for laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair and later applied to laparoscopic ventral and incisional hernia repair. We present our center's early operative outcomes utilizing principles of this technique during robotic ventral and incisional hernia repair for implementation of the robotic eTEP Rives-Stoppa (eRS) and eTEP transversus abdominis release (eTAR) techniques. METHODS: A review of a prospectively maintained database of hernia patients was conducted identifying 37 patients who underwent robotic eTEP for ventral, incisional, flank or parastomal hernia repair between March and October 2017...

BACKGROUND: Long-term patient's satisfaction after groin hernia repair is rarely studied in the literature. The aim of this study was to compare the four main techniques of inguinal hernia repair in terms of patient's satisfaction and quality of life at the 2-year follow-up in a prospective registry. METHODS: From September 2011 to March 2014, consecutive patients underwent groin hernia repair and were prospectively included in the Club Hernie registry, which also consisted of expert surgeons in parietal repair...

BACKGROUND: The US healthcare system is shifting towards reimbursement for quality over quantity of care. Quality measures are tied to financial incentives in these healthcare models. It is important that surgeons become familiar with quality measures addressing ventral hernia repair and understand candidate measures that may drive future quality measure development. STUDY DESIGN: We performed a systematic review of society websites, quality measure databases, and the literature (Pubmed, Embase/Scopus, and Google Scholar) for quality measures addressing ventral hernia surgery...

PURPOSE: This study aimed to present a modified laparoscopic keyhole parastomal hernia repair technique with in situ re-ostomy and show its safety and feasibility at a mid-term follow-up. METHODS: The technique begins with adhesiolysis during laparoscopy. An annular incision is made between the skin and stomal mucosa. Then, after all adhesions of the stomal bowel and its mesentery are separated from the hernial sac, the stomal bowel is delivered through the keyhole mesh...

PURPOSE: Inguinal hernia repair and general anesthesia (GA) are known risk factors for urinary retention. Paravertebral blocks (PVBs) have been utilized to facilitate enhanced recovery after surgery. We evaluate the benefit of incorporating PVBs into our anesthetic technique in a large cohort of ambulatory patients undergoing inguinal hernia repair. METHODS: Records of 619 adults scheduled for ambulatory inguinal hernia repair between 2010 and 2015 were reviewed and categorized based on anesthetic and surgical approach [GA and open (GAO), GA and laparoscopic (GAL), PVB and open (PVBO), and GA/PVB and open (GA/PVBO)]...

PURPOSE: Ventral hernias are a common surgical issue and a myriad of surgical mesh designs has been developed for their treatment. Many of these new mesh designs have not been extensively tested and their complications rates are largely unknown. The C-QUR V-Patch Mesh™ combines a unique knit construction polypropylene mesh with an omega-3 fatty acid coating. There has only previously been one reported study investigating this mesh. METHODS: A multicentre cohort study, with a single surgeon, of 168 consecutive patients with ventral hernias underwent repair using a standardized open pre-peritoneal approach with the novel C-QUR V-Patch Mesh™ between January 2013 and June 2015...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic intraperitoneal mesh repair has become one of the most commonly performed minimally invasive procedures. Nevertheless, despite improved overall outcome, postoperative seroma formation remains the most frequent complication. Our objective was to investigate the effectiveness of cauterization of the hernia sac in terms of reducing the incidence of postoperative seroma formation. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of 94 patients who underwent standard laparoscopic intraperitoneal mesh repair without closure of the central defect (sIPOM) between June 2011 and December 2014 was conducted...

PURPOSE: The seroma rate following laparoscopic incisional ventral hernia repair (LIVHR) is up to 78%. LIVHR is connected to a relatively rare but dangerous complication, enterotomy, especially in cases with complex adhesiolysis. Closure of the fascial defect and extirpation of the hernia sack may reduce the risk of seromas and other hernia-site events. Our aim was to evaluate whether hybrid operation has a lower rate of the early complications compared to the standard LIVHR. METHODS: This is a multicenter randomized-controlled clinical trial...

PURPOSE: Transabdominal preperitoneal hernia mesh plasty (TAPP) offers significant benefits to patients undergoing bilateral inguinal hernia repair. We evaluated a novel pre-shaped, large-pored, titanium-coated, lightweight polypropylene mesh for bilateral placement as an alternative to two separate meshes. METHODS: Thirty-six patients underwent elective surgical repair of bilateral inguinal hernias with the new mesh at three departments of surgery in Linz and Graz, Austria, between May 1, 2015 and June 30, 2017...

PURPOSE: Treatment of chronic mesh infections (CMI) after parietal repair is difficult and not standardized. Our objective was to present the results of a standardized surgical treatment including maximal infected mesh removal. METHODS: Patients who were referred to our center for chronic mesh infection were analyzed according to CMI risk factors, initial hernia prosthetic cure, CMI characteristics and treatments they received to achieve a cure. RESULTS: Thirty-four patients (mean age 54 ± 13 years; range 23-72), were included...

Maulana Mohammed Ansari
Modern high-definition laparoscopy has often revealed new visions of the structures known for centuries, and discovery of new structures like 'rectusial fascia', additional morphology of the 'preperitoneal fascia' and multiple Retzius spaces greatly facilitated accurate and judicious dissection for seamless laparoscopic inguinal hernioplasty. Dr. N. Asakage's presentation of inguino-pelvic fascial anatomy and its embryology [Asakage N. Paradigm shift regarding the transversalis fascia, preperitoneal space, and Retzius' space...

PURPOSE: This study evaluated the manufacturing method and anti-adhesion properties of a new composite mesh in the rat model, which was made from sirolimus (SRL) grafts on a poly(L-lactic acid) (PLLA)-modified polypropylene (PP) hernia mesh. METHODS: PLLA was first grafted onto argon-plasma-treated native PP mesh through catalysis of stannous chloride. SRL was grafted onto the surface of PP-PLLA meshes using catalysis of 1-(3-dimethylaminopropyl)-3-ethylcarbodiimide hydrochloride (EDC) and 4-dimethylaminopyridine (DMAP) in a CH2 Cl2 solvent...

PURPOSE: Kugel procedure is a classic preperitoneal herniorrhaphy via the posterior approach for inguinal hernias but it has a steep learning curve. The aim of the study is to evaluate the efficacy of the Kugel procedure via the internal ring approach. METHODS: Kugel procedures via the internal ring approach were performed on 3673 patients with inguinal hernias between September, 2005 and August, 2017. Demographic data, peri-operative data and postoperative data were collected to evaluate of the efficacy of this technique...

PURPOSE: Sarcopenia, or loss of muscle mass, is associated with increased morbidity and mortality in oncologic resections and several other major surgeries. Complex ventral hernia repairs (VHRs) and abdominal wall reconstruction are often performed in patients at high risk for morbidity and recurrence, though limited data exist on outcomes related to sarcopenia. We aimed to determine if sarcopenia is associated with worse outcomes in patients undergoing VHR. METHODS: We reviewed patients undergoing VHRs from 2014 to 2015...

PURPOSE: To investigate whether defect closure in laparoscopic ventral hernia repair reduces the re-operation rate for recurrence compared with no defect closure. METHODS: Data were extracted from the Danish Ventral Hernia Database. Adults with an elective laparoscopic ventral hernia repair with tacks used as mesh fixation were included, if their first repair was between the 1st of January 2007 and the 1st of January 2017. Patients with defect closure were compared with no defect closure...
