Laparoscopic surgery is a good choice for surgical treatment of hiatal hernia because of its mini-invasive nature and intraperitoneal view and operating angle. This article will talk about the surgical procedures, technical details, precautions and complications about laparoscopic hernioplasty of hiatal hernia.

Titanium and polypropylene mesh endoprostheses were implanted into the rat abdominal cavity and the populations of cells migrating to their surface were analyzed. On both materials, the cells were presented mainly by macrophages that proliferated, activated, and fused to form multinuclear cells. Contact with the foreign surface triggered superoxide anion generation and myeloperoxidase synthesis by macrophages (these processes were more intense on polypropylene implants than on titanium ones) and stimulated production of nitric oxide by macrophage...

INTRODUCTION: Supravesical hernia is a rare cause of hernias in the groin; the authors describe its surgical treatment using a laparoscopic technique - TAPP. METHOD: From 2003 to 2015, laparoscopic hernioplasty of inguinal hernia using TAPP was performed at our clinic in 1227 patients; this patient group included 12 patients with the diagnosis of supravesical hernia. Clipped polypropylene mesh was used to cover the defect in all patients. RESULTS: All patients were operated on with this technique...

We report the first documented case of an inguinal hernia containing bladder, resulting in contralateral allograft hydroureteronephrosis. A 39 year old male patient presented with allograft dysfunction, a contralateral inguino-scrotal hernia and marked hydroureteronephrosis on ultrasound. Percutaneous nephrostogram and a retrograde cystogram suggested bladder herniation with incorporation of the contralateral ureteroneocystostomy into the hernia. Paraperitoneal bladder herniation was confirmed at surgery and hernioplasty was performed...

BACKGROUND: The identification of retropubic vasculature is not easy under the pressure of insufflated gas during totally extraperitoneal (TEP) inguinal hernioplasty. We aimed to present the usefulness of a maneuver that allows the clear identification of retropubic vasculature. METHODS: Vascular anatomy on the retropubic surface in 364 patients who underwent the TEP procedure from January 2005 to September 2015 was evaluated. In patients after July 2014, the pressure in the workspace was decreased from 14 to 8 mmHg before fixation of the mesh to clearly identify the veins...

Migration of hernia mesh into the bladder is a rare complication of inguinal hernioplasty. We present the case of an 85-year-old man who complained of hematuria and fever some 20 years after right hernioplasty. Cystoscopy and computed tomography revealed mesh migration into the right anterior wall of the bladder. Laparoscopic partial cystectomy with excision of the migrated mesh was performed successfully. To our knowledge, this is the first case of mesh migration into the bladder treated by laparoscopic partial cystectomy...

BACKGROUND: The inguinal hernia is one of the most frequent surgical diseases, being frequent procedure and surgeon´s everyday practice. AIM: To present technical details in making hernioplasty using robotic equipment on bilateral inguinal hernia repair with single port and preliminary results with the method. METHOD: The bilateral inguinal hernia repair was performed by using the Single-Site(c) Da Vinci Surgical Access Platform to the abdominal cavity and the placement of clamps...

BACKGROUND/AIM: Mesh hernioplasty is one of the most frequently performed procedures in the United States. Abdominal rigidity and chronic inflammation, among other factors, contribute to long-term complications including chronic pain, abdominal wall stiffness and fibrosis. Acute models do not replicate the chronic environment associated with most hernias, limiting the ability to improve products. The present study details development of a critical-size defect in rabbit abdominal wall for maturation into a chronic hernia to enable analysis of hernia repair devices in a realistic environment...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study is to evaluate pain and further disabling complications in patients undergoing Lichtenstein technique for primary inguinal hernia repair by fixing the mesh with fibrin sealant versus sutures. METHODS: This study was carried out on 116 patients between January 2009 and July 2009. All patients were male, between the ages of 20 and 75 years. Lichtenstein, using a polypropylene mesh as prosthetic material. A total of 116 hernias were operated on...

Severe pulmonary arterial hypertension is a significant risk factor for anesthetic management in patients undergoing even non-cardiac surgery. A 64-year-old female patient with severe pulmonary arterial hypertension was scheduled to undergo inguinal hernioplasty. Preoperative systolic pulmonary arterial pressure was 115 mmHg. We selected monitored anesthesia care with 0.2-0.5 μg x kg(-1) x hr(-1) dexmedetomidine and ultrasound-guided iliohypogastric block. Thereafter, LiDCOrapid was used to acquire the hemodynamic responses during surgery...

UNLABELLED: The relationship between mesh weight and host tissue reaction has, so far, not been fully investigated. Lightweight meshes (LWM) are thought to give less inflammatory response compared with heavyweight meshes (HWM). The present study is a randomized, controlled, double-blind clinical trial performed in 61 patients who underwent an elective inguinal hernioplasty. The primary outcome of the study was to investigate the relationship between total amount of prosthetic material (polypropylene), immunological reaction, and oxidative stress...

UNLABELLED: Current techniques for ventral hernia repair (VHR) rely on prosthetic mesh implantation and are increasingly performed laparoscopically. Potentially serious iatrogenic complications may occur following VHR, though these are rare compared to the vast number of procedures performed each year. This paper provides an overview of contemporary open and laparoscopic surgical techniques and biomaterials, then reviews and illustrates the expected postoperative imaging appearances, and common and unusual early complications after VHR...

The aim of this study was to explore the clinical efficacy of a novel retrograde puncture approach to establish a preperitoneal space for laparoscopic direct inguinal hernia repair with inguinal ring suturing. Forty-two patients who underwent laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair with retrograde puncture for preperitoneal space establishment as well as inguinal ring suturing between August 2013 and March 2014 at our hospital were enrolled. Preperitoneal space was successfully established in all patients, with a mean establishment time of 6 min...

BACKGROUND: The risk of wound infection after elective inguinal hernia repair depends on several factors. One of the most important factors is the preoperative skin preparation. The use of antisepsis is performed to reduce the risk of surgical site infections (SSIs) and to remove causing organisms. This work compares two different agent forms for preoperative skin preparation to prevent SSIs. OBJECTIVES: The objective of the study is comparing the effects of two different agents used for preoperative skin preparation and prevention of SSIs...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to provide clinical evidence supporting the safety and effectiveness of laparoscopic surgical glue injection hernioplasty (LSGIH) for indirect inguinal hernia repair in female patients. METHODS: We conducted a prospective study of LSGIH beginning in January 2013. N-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate was used as the surgical glue for closure of the hernia sac. Twenty-eight female patients with a mean age of 51.1 ± 35.3 months (24 days to 10 years) received LSGIH...

BACKGROUND: Gallstone ileus is a rare complication of chronic calcular cholecystitis and an uncommon etiological entity responsible for mechanical intestinal obstruction. The most common obstructed part is the narrow terminal ileum, whereas the jejunum is rarely affected. The gallstone is postulated to reach the small bowel by gradual erosion from the gall bladder, most commonly into the duodenum, forming a cholecysto-duodenal fistula. CASE REPORT: Herein, we report a 72-year-old male who presented with intestinal obstruction of a 5-day duration, with a clinical diagnosis of an irreducible inguinal hernia...
