A 67-years-old woman visited our hospital because of abdominal distension and vomiting. Upper gastrointestinal series (UGI) showed diffuse stomach dilatation with no contrast passage (Fig. 1a). Abdominal computed tomography(CT) scan revealed entrapment of the antrum and converging mesenteric vessels into the lesser sac through Winslow's foramen without evidence of bowel necrosis or strangulation (Fig. 1b).

INTRODUCTION: Laparoscopic transabdominal preperitoneal repair (TAPP) is widely accepted in elective inguinal hernioplasty. However, given the scarcity of data, the feasibility and safety of TAPP in strangulated hernia cases have not yet been determined. METHODS: We retrospectively evaluated the data from a consecutive series of 33 patients who had undergone surgery for acute strangulated inguinal hernia associated with suspected visceral ischemic damage by either TAPP (TAPP group, n = 11) or conventional open hernioplasty via the anterior approach (anterior group, n = 22)...

BACKGROUND: Inguinal hernias are a common disorder in low- and middle-human development index countries (LMHDICs). Poor access to surgical care and lack of patient awareness often lead to delayed presentations of incarcerated or strangulated hernias and their associated morbidities. There is a scarcity of data on the baseline incidence of surgical site infections (SSIs) after hernia repair procedures in LMHDICs. METHODS: We performed a systematic review of the literature describing the incidence and management of SSIs after inguinal hernia repair in LMHDICs...

METHODS: We conducted a retrospective national mortuary based study to identify all adult female homicides (18 years and older) and all child homicides (boys and girls < 18 years) in 2009 in a randomly selected, proportionate sample of mortuaries. Victim, perpetrator and crime data were collected in three processes: from the mortuary register, the autopsy report and from police with the identification of sexual homicides validated across the data collection processes. FINDINGS: Among the 2670 (95% CI: 2311-2979) adult women killed in 2009, 494 (95% CI: 406-574) were identified as sexual homicides which was 19...

BACKGROUND: Bochdalek hernias are one of the most common types of diaphragmatic hernia, with most cases diagnosed during the neonatal period. In contrast, diagnosis of a Bochdalek hernia in an adult is rare and is typically observed on the left side of the diaphragm. Even more rare is the diagnosis of a right-sided Bochdalek hernia in an adult, where there is concurrent visceral malformation in most cases. CASE PRESENTATION: We describe a case of an 89-year-old female who presented with abdominal pain...

INTRODUCTION: Para-Umbilical Hernia (PUH) is one of the most common surgical problems. Since the prosthetic repair has become the standard of practice for inguinal hernia management, the same has been adapted for para-umbilical hernia management with better outcome. There is still debate going on regarding the optimal surgical approach. There are very few prospective studies comparing the laparoscopic and open method of para-umbilical hernia mesh repair. This study compared the short term outcomes following laparoscopic versus open mesh repair of PUH...

BACKGROUND: Robot assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (RALP) spread in the last decade as a minimally invasive alternative to open radical prostatectomy for men with localized prostate cancer. It is associated with excellent surgical, functional and oncological results with less postoperative pain and shorter convalescence. Anyway, the development of an incisional hernia (IH), may negate known benefits as it can lead not only to bothersome symptoms but also to severe complications, such as bowel obstruction, strangulation and perforation...

BACKGROUND: A large proportion of patients presenting for ventral hernia repair are obese. It remains unclear, however, whether the degree of obesity is an independent risk factor for adverse outcomes after ventral hernia repair. This study aims to characterize the influence of body mass index class on postoperative complications after open ventral hernia repair. METHODS: A retrospective analysis was conducted using data from the database of the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program from 2005 to 2015...

Accounting for approximately 0.4-0.6% of all inguinal hernias, Amyand's hernia is a rare condition in which a vermiform appendix is found in an inguinal hernia sac. It is most commonly found in males and in the pediatric population. Since Claudius Amyand's first reported case in 1736, there have only been a total of 228 documented cases of the Amyand's hernia. Due to its rarity, the pathophysiology and risk factors of the condition are still unclear. Some theorize that it is secondary to a patent processus vaginalis or perhaps the presence of a fibrous band between the hernia sac and testes...

Grynfeltt-Leschaft hernia is a type of lumbar hernia occurring in the superior lumbar triangle. Because of its rarity and non-specific presentation, lumbar hernia often poses a diagnostic challenge, and it can be easily misdiagnosed as a lipoma. If the correct diagnosis is missed, there is a significant risk of complications including hernia incarceration or strangulation. Here, we present a case of Grynfeltt-Lesshaft hernia which was repeatedly misdiagnosed as a lipoma and presented acutely with large bowel obstruction...

Parental perception of safe and risk-free environment is critical in the prevention of unintentional childhood injury. In this cross-sectional study, hundred mothers from 13 clusters were interviewed to assess the perception of mothers regarding the risks and hazards leading to unintentional childhood injuries from March to April 2013. A tool developed by Glik et al. was used. Mothers' perception of likelihood of injury from hazards such as household door and drawers, small toys, plastic bags, and cribs was poor...

The incidence of anisakidosis continues to increase worldwide due to increased consumption of undercooked fish. Although anisakidosis can be categorized into four clinical phenotypes (gastric, intestinal, ectopic, and allergic), ectopic forms of the condition are much less common than gastric or intestinal forms when caused by Pseudoterranova spp. We report the case of a 5-year-old patient who presented with a rapidly growing left inguinal mass and was subsequently diagnosed with extra-gastrointestinal anisakidosis caused by Pseudoterranova azarasi...

In cases of fall from a height, the presence of laryngohyoid fracture or bleeding at autopsy constitutes a suspicion of strangulation before trauma in these types of cases. This study has aimed to investigate the incidence of laryngohyoid fractures in nonhomicidal fall from height cases, and their relationship with age, sex, height of fall, body mass index, and other injuries.A total of 170 cases proven to be nonhomicidal falls from height with certain witnesses and evidences in 4683 autopsy cases in 2013 were included in this study...

AIMS: To assess the predictive validity of the DA-5 with the addition of a strangulation item in evaluating the risk of an intimate partner violence (IPV) victim being nearly killed by an intimate partner. BACKGROUND: The DA-5 was developed as a short form of the Danger Assessment for use in healthcare settings, including emergency and urgent care settings. Analyzing data from a sample of IPV survivors who had called the police for domestic violence, the DA-5 was tested with and without an item on strangulation, a potentially fatal and medically damaging IPV tactic used commonly by dangerous abusers...

Strangulation of groin hernia can result in significant morbidity and mortality. Spontaneous external fistulation following strangulation is rare and typically occurs with Richter's hernia. Spreading Necrotizing Soft Tissue Infection (NSTI) secondary to Enterocutaneous Fistula (ECF) is an ominous sign, further worsening its prognosis. Early diagnosis and prompt surgical treatment is crucial to improve outcome. Herewith the authors are presenting a case of neglected inguinal hernia. It was complicated with ECF formation and rapidly spreading NSTI of flank...

INTRODUCTION: Internal supravesical hernia is one of the rarest types of inguinal hernia. The hernial orifice is surrounded by the transverse vesical fold, median umbilical fold, and medial umbilical fold. PRESENTATION OF CASE: A 75-year-old male presented with lower abdominal pain and nausea. Plain abdominal CT showed that the bladder was suppressed by small bowel near the left internal inguinal ring. A part of the small bowel wall seemed to be inlaid, and so the patient was diagnosed with a strangulated left inguinal hernia...
