BACKGROUND: trocar site herniation is a rare but potentially serious complication of laparoscopic surgery. Data about drain site hernia after laparoscopic surgery is scarce and anecdotal. CASE PRESENTATION: we report an uncommon case of drain site hernia in a man undergone laparoscopic left colectomy for a colonic adenocarcinoma who developed small bowel herniation in a 10 mm port site, in which a 24 FR drain was inserted leaving a real free space of 2 mm. DISCUSSION: laparoscopic approach has gained widespread acceptance in each surgical fields because of the perceived better postoperative outcomes in terms of less pain, faster recovery, and lower risk of incisional hernia...

Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is a birth defect characterized by failed closure of the diaphragm, allowing abdominal viscera to herniate into the thoracic cavity and subsequently impair pulmonary and vascular development. Despite improving standardized postnatal management, there remains a population of severe CDH for whom postnatal care falls short. In these severe cases, antenatal surgical intervention (fetoscopic endoluminal tracheal occlusion [FETO]) may improve survival; however, FETO increases the risk of preterm delivery, is not widely offered, and still fails in half of cases...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study is to investigate the cumulative incidence and risk factors of postoperative inguinal hernia (PIH) in patients undergoing radical prostatectomy, i.e., laparoscopic prostatectomy (LRP) and robot-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy (RARP). METHODS: This study included 1124 patients who had undergone radical prostatectomy or transurethral resection of bladder tumor from 2011-2016. We compared the cumulative incidence of PIH in the radical prostatectomy groups (460; LRP 341, RARP 119) and the control group (664; transurethral resection of bladder tumor), and we then analyzed the risk factors (age, operative methods, previous abdominal operative history, thickness and width of external oblique muscle and rectus muscle, thickness of abdominal subcutaneous fat layer at Hesselbach's triangle level, body mass index, prostate-specific antigen, operative time, specimen weight, Gleason score, and pathology T-stage) of PIH in the radical prostatectomy groups...

The umbilicus is an important aesthetic landmark of the abdomen. It possesses a dual blood supply that allows it to survive either on its stalk if the skin surrounding the umbilicus is incised, or through the surrounding subdermal circulation if the stalk is transected. This is an important concept to consider in order to avoid umbilical ischemia and necrosis during abdominoplasty, especially if there is any past surgical history suggesting alteration to its blood supply. This case study depicts this importance and the importance of the use of delay in order to improve perfusion to the umbilicus prior to secondary abdominoplasty...

The closure of the abdominal wall after making a laparotomy is a major challenge for surgeons, since a significant percentage of closures fail and incisional hernias rise. The suture has to withstand the forces required to close the incision, while not hindering the adequate wound healing progression. Currently, there is no surgical measuring device that could be used to determine the required closing forces, which can be very different depending on the patient. This paper presents a dynamometer to measure the tension forces to be applied while closing a surgical incision, and it simultaneously measures the distance between wound edges...

INTRODUCTION: Segmental arterial mediolysis (SAM) is a rare nonatherosclerotic, noninflammatory vasculopathy causing arterial wall necrosis that leads to strictures, dissections, and aneurysms, particularly in medium-sized abdominal arteries. Awareness of SAM is important because, unlike vasculitides, immunosuppressive treatment may worsen the disease process. CASE: A 58-year-old man with multiple medical comorbidities presented with acute epigastric pain and a right incarcerated inguinal hernia that was interpreted as showing bowel strangulation on computed tomography...

As lateral approaches gain popularity in lumbar spine surgery, detailed discussions regarding anatomical variations in the innervation of the thoracolumbar region are of increasing importance. Damage to intercostal or subcostal nerves can lead to post-operative complications including regional loss of sensitivity, motor function, or abdominal wall hernias. More specifically, the subcostal nerve has been identified in the literature as one of the more vulnerable structures during such procedures. A clear understanding of the position of the subcostal nerve relative to nearby anatomical structures is therefore important for medical professionals...

PURPOSE: Obesity is a major public health concern in the United States, affecting nearly 79 million people. There have been promising results performing microvascular breast reconstruction in patients with obesity; however, the definition of obesity is often poorly defined or does not extend above a body mass index (BMI) of 35. Our goal was to examine outcomes of microvascular breast reconstruction in this questionably more risky population. METHODS: A retrospective review from 2013 to 2016 was performed of 2 surgeons' experience with abdominally based microvascular breast reconstructions...

The laparoscopic approach of the upper gastrointestinal tract is considered the gold standard for the treatment of functional benign esophageal disorders since 1990. In recent years, many efforts have been made to minimize the abdominal wall's trauma to reduce postoperative pain and to obtain a prompt return to daily activities, as well as improve cosmetic results of surgery. The progressive development of novel surgical devices has allowed for the introduction of new minimally-invasive surgical techniques...

BACKGROUND: Closure of complex and contaminated abdominal wounds is challenging and carries risks, including wound dehiscence and incisional hernias. Hernia formation at closed stoma sites occurs in up to 30% of patients. Use of biological meshes in these situations may provide a safe method of reducing these complications, especially long-term incisional hernias. METHOD: The Reinforcement of Closure of Stoma Site (ROCSS) study is a phase III multicentre randomised controlled trial (RCT), with an internal feasibility study...
