BACKGROUND: Hernias of the posterior rectus sheath are very rare abdominal wall hernias with only a handful of cases reported in the literature to date. As an uncommon disease, it is important to recognize and report this case in order to enhance scientific knowledge of this disease. CASE PRESENTATION: This case report presents a spontaneous posterior rectus sheath herniation in a 79-year-old white man with previous abdominal surgery for appendicitis. His herniation was discovered incidentally during an examination for his chief complaints of lower abdominal pain and diarrhea which were later diagnosed as Salmonella-related gastroenteritis...

Here, we report two patients with transomental hernia who were successfully treated with laparoscopic surgery. The first patient was a 58-year-old female who presented to our hospital with abdominal pain and vomiting; she had no history of abdominal surgery. Enhanced computed tomography revealed strangulation ileus due to an internal hernia. The second patient was a 36-year-old male who presented to our hospital with abdominal pain and no history of abdominal surgery. Enhanced computed tomography indicated transomental hernia...

Suicide is a serious public health problem around the world. Since the nineteenth century, the impact of socio-environmental factors on suicide has attracted much public attention, especially in the context of global climate change. We have performed a retrospective correlation study that analyzes the demographic pattern of suicide in Cantabria, a northern coastland region of Spain. Moreover, we have created a multivariable binomial regression model to study the relationship between suicide and environmental factors (atmospheric pollutants and meteorological variables) among January 1, 2000, and December 31, 2013 in the province...

Suicide and intentional self-harm are among the leading causes of death in the United States. To study this public health issue, epidemiologists and researchers often analyze data coded using the International Classification of Diseases (ICD). Prior to October 1, 2015, health care organizations and providers used the clinical modification of the Ninth Revision of ICD (ICD-9-CM) to report medical information in electronic claims data. The transition in October 2015 to use of the clinical modification of the Tenth Revision of ICD (ICD-10-CM) resulted in the need to update methods and selection criteria previously developed for ICD-9-CM coded data...

Obturator hernia is an extremely rare type of abdominal wall hernia occurring mostly in elderly, thin females. It is characterized by the herniation of intra-abdominal contents through the obturator foramen. Symptoms are often nonspecific, and the patient usually presents with an acute or subacute intestinal obstruction. A high index of suspicion is needed in such females presenting with abdominal distention and positive Howship-Romberg signs. Computed tomography of the abdomen and pelvis are often necessary to arrive at a diagnosis, and immediate surgical intervention is recommended...

INTRODUCTION: Gastric diverticula consist a rare form of diverticula of the gastrointestinal tract. They can be described as an "out-pouching" protrusion from the gastric wall. They are usually found in patients aged between 20 and 60 years old. PRESENTATION OF CASE: We present herein a case of an 82 year- old male patient who was admitted to our hospital with a strangulated inguinal hernia and a gastric diverticulum was incidentally found, as a post- operative radiographic finding...

OBJECTIVE: To review all cases of parenteral support (PS)-dependent patients with short bowel syndrome (SBS) treated with teduglutide (Gattex®, Shire) and to evaluate its efficacy and adverse effects. METHODS: This is a retrospective descriptive cohort of SBS patients treated with teduglutide. Demographics, bowel length, primary diagnosis, PS volume/duration, teduglutide dose, and side effects were collected prospectively. RESULTS: Six SBS patients (4 females, 2 males) received teduglutide...

A hernia is defined as a protrusion of an organ or its fascia through a sac of its containing cavity. The presentation of an inflamed appendix inside an incarcerated femoral hernia is termed de Garengeot's hernia. Almost exclusively seen in the female patient, this type of hernia like all others can undergo strangulation leading to complications including appendicitis with or without perforation. Management as described in literature usually comprises open or laparoscopic approach, followed by appendectomy and repair of the femoral hernia with or without mesh...

Self-harm is a common issue in detention and includes both suicidal and non-suicidal behaviours. Beyond well-known individual risk factors, institutional factors such as overcrowding (i.e., when the prison population exceeds its capacity) and turnover (i.e., the rate at which the prison population is renewed), may also increase the risk of self-harm. However, these factors are understudied or previous studies reported inconsistent findings. This study investigated the association of self-harm with overcrowding and turnover in the largest pre-trial Swiss prison in Geneva...

The aim of this study was to determine the feasibility of prosthetic mesh repair according to the degree of bowel necrosis in the emergency management of acutely strangulated groin hernias. Emergency prosthetic mesh repair versus primary suture repair was randomly performed in 208 consecutive strangulated groin hernia patients with bowel necrosis between January 2005 and August 2016. The degree of bowel necrosis of each patient was determined according to a modified three-grade classification system. Patient characteristics sorted by repair method were analyzed by using Pearson's chi-squared tests...

Strangulation is a common and dangerous form of intimate partner violence (IPV). Nonfatal strangulation is a risk factor for homicide; can lead to severe, long-term physical and mental health sequelae; and can be an effective strategy of coercion and control. To date, research has not examined strangulation within same-sex couples. The objective of this cross-sectional, observational research is to identify whether and to what extent the detection of strangulation and coercive control differs between same-sex and different-sex couples in police reports of IPV...

This is a report of a case who was admitted and operated on for a strangulated femoral hernia. The hernia sac contained a gangrenous appendix, which was excised and the hernia was repaired with sutures without complication. De Garengeot's hernia, although very rare, should be included in the differential diagnosis of cases with strangulated hernia and should receive the optimal treatment.

The vast majority of articles presented retrospective analysis of single-center experience. RESULTS: It has been established that short course of medication is predominantly used for acute adhesive intestinal obstruction in the Russian Federation...

Groin hernia repair is one of the most common general surgical procedures performed worldwide. Though only a small percentage will become incarcerated or strangulated this is an indication for repair. Minimally invasive surgery is becoming standard of care for most procedures and we believe this to be a safe and feasible approach for incarcerated or strangulated groin hernias. We present a description of our recommend approach with technical details and accompanying video clips to highlight these techniques...

The aim of this study was to summarize the current status of the possible causes, clinical symptoms and pathogenesis of abortion in the mare and to evaluate the frequency of varying causes of abortion in German thoroughbred breeding. An analysis of the literature using electronic libraries, journals and textbooks was performed. In addition, the results of examinations of 123 abortions of thoroughbred breeding in central Germany were evaluated. In the literature, bacterial infections are the most frequently described cause of abortion...
