BACKGROUND: Tension-free repair using mesh is a common inguinal hernia surgical procedure. However, various complications such as mesh-related infection and recurrence may develop as a result. Moreover, although rare, there are also reports of intestinal obstruction caused by adhesion of the mesh to the intestinal wall and cases of mesh migration into various organs. Here, we report our experience with a patient in whom mesh extraction was performed due to migration of mesh into the intestinal tract following inguinal hernia surgery and formation of a fistula with the bladder...

We performed transabdominal preperitoneal inguinal hernia repair in 46 patients (58 diseases), two of whom experienced early recurrence after mesh repair. Case 1 was a 76-year-old man with a bilateral inguinal hernia (recurrence site, left indirect hernia) after appendectomy. The recurrence occurred 1 month after transabdominal preperitoneal inguinal hernia repair. The mesh was dislocated to the lateral side, and we repaired it using the direct Kugel® patch with an anterior technique. Case 2 was a 79-year-old man with a bilateral inguinal hernia (recurrence site, right direct hernia with an orifice >3 cm) after appendectomy...

PURPOSE: The transinguinal preperitoneal approach is a relatively new technique for inguinal hernia repair. Two types of memory-ring mesh are available in Japan: the modified Kugel patch (MK) and the Polysoft patch (PP). We tested the hypothesis that the PP is noninferior to the MK with respect to chronic postoperative pain. METHODS: An unblinded randomized controlled trial was conducted to assess the noninferiority of PP compared to MK with a 5 % noninferiority margin...

Tension-free hernia repairing techniques is a popular herniorrhaphy for open inguinal hernioplasty and the modified Kugel herniorrhaphy (MKH) is a kind of tension-free hernia repairing technique. The modified Kugel herniorrhaphy (MKH) is a minimally invasive, non-laparoscopic, conventional anterior approach, preperitoneal and sutureless technique. It is well accepted by most people because of few complications and low recurrence rate. A case of an 82-year-old man underwent MKH. After the third day of postoperation, a strange symptom of Grey-Turner's sign appeared and maintained for 10 days...

BACKGROUND: Compared with laparoscopic groin herniorrhaphy, the open procedure used in most former studies was Lichtenstein repair. However, unlike the totally extraperitoneal (TEP) or transabdominal preperitoneal (TAPP) laparoscopic techniques, Lichtenstein procedure is a premuscular but not preperitoneal repair. This retrospective study compared the outcomes between laparoscopic preperitoneal and open preperitoneal procedure-modified Kugel (MK) herniorrhaphy. METHODS: Groin hernia patients older than 18 years who underwent open MK or laparoscopic preperitoneal herniorrhaphy in our hospitals between January 2008 and December 2010 were enrolled...
