AIM: Trans-Abdominal Preperitoneal Patch (TAPP) repairs for Recurrent Hernia (RH) is a technically demanding procedure. It has to be performed only by surgeons with extensive experience in the laparoscopic approach. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the surgical safety and the efficacy of TAPP for RH performed in a tutoring program by surgeons in practice (SP). MATERIAL AND STUDY: All TAPP repairs for RH performed by the same surgical team have been included in the study...

BACKGROUND: Obesity and higher body mass index may be associated with higher rates of wound healing complications and hernia recurrence rates following complex abdominal wall reconstruction. The authors hypothesized that higher body mass indexes result in higher rates of postoperative wound healing complications but similar rates of hernia recurrence in abdominal wall reconstruction patients. METHODS: The authors included 511 consecutive patients who underwent abdominal wall reconstruction with underlay mesh...

Repair of an incisional hernia (IH) generates costs on several levels and domains of society. The aim of this study was to make a complete cost analysis of incisional hernia repair (IHR) with synthetic and biological mesh and to compare it with financial reimbursement. Patients were grouped into three levels to determine the complexity of their care, and hence, the costs involved. Group 1 included patients without comorbidities, who underwent a "standard" incisional hernia repair (SIHR), with synthetic mesh...

BACKGROUND: Patients with symptomatic umbilical, trocar, and/or epigastric hernias and concomitant rectus abdominis diastasis represent a growing clinical problem. The optimal management of this complex hernia situation is the subject of debate in the literature. This paper reports the early results of an innovative surgical technique aimed at managing this hernia situation. METHODS: Endoscopic-assisted linea alba reconstruction (ELAR) with mesh augmentation is a surgical technique long known in the literature for its good outcome for incisional hernia repair (myofascial release, overlapping herniorrhaphy, Gibson's operation, shoelace repair, anterior rectus sheath repair, dynamic patch plasty) via a small access route...

Partial deletions on the long arm of chromosome 13 lead to a number of different phenotypes depending on the size and position of the deleted region. The present study investigated 2 patients with 13q terminal (13qter) deletion syndrome, which manifested as anal atresia with rectoperineal fistula, complex type congenital heart disease, esophageal hiatus hernia with gastroesophageal reflux, facial anomalies and developmental and mental retardation. Array comparative genomic hybridization identified 2 regions of deletion on chromosome 13q31‑qter; 20...

The majority of inguinal hernias that are concomitant with abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) are clinically insignificant. However, management of AAA associated with a complex hernia can be challenging. We report a case of a 72-year-old male with a 7 cm AAA and a massive inguinal hernia involving loss of abdominal domain. Using a multidisciplinary approach, a staged hybrid endovascular and open repair of the AAA was performed followed by hernia repair.

Laparoscopic surgery has revolutionized the delivery of care to the surgical patient undergoing colorectal resection. Since the first laparoscopic-assisted colectomy in 1991, significant advances have been made in minimally invasive colorectal surgery. For many benign conditions, laparoscopic colectomy has been proven to be safe and effective, and in some instances superior when compared with open surgery. Complex laparoscopic resections such as those for diverticulitis and inflammatory bowel disease have also been shown to have equivalent outcomes when compared with open surgery...

In a range of animal species, exposure of the brain to general anaesthesia without surgery during early infancy may adversely affect its neural and cognitive development. The mechanisms mediating this are complex but include an increase in brain cell death. In humans, attempts to link adverse cognitive development to infantile anaesthesia exposure have yielded ambiguous results. One caveat that may influence the interpretation of human studies is that infants are not exposed to general anaesthesia without surgery, raising the possibility that surgery itself, may contribute to adverse cognitive development...

BACKGROUND: Pre-existing chronic liver diseases and the complexity of the transplant surgery procedures lead to a greater risk of further surgery in transplanted patients compared to the general population. The aim of this monocentric retrospective cohort study was to assess the epidemiology of surgical complications in liver transplanted patients who require further surgical procedures and to characterize their post-operative risk of complications to enhance their medical care. PATIENTS AND METHODS: From January 1997 to December 2011, 1211 patients underwent orthotropic liver transplantation in our center...

BACKGROUND: Inguinal hernia repair is one of the most frequently conducted surgical procedures worldwide. Totally extraperitoneal (TEP) hernioplasty has shown many advantages over traditional open surgery. However, because of increased surgical complexity, it requires more practice to achieve optimal results. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study is to evaluate the learning curve for TEP hernioplasty, analysing parameters related to the mean operating time. The secondary objective is to assess the complications and early discharge rates related to this procedure...

Background: The retro-rectus placement of a prosthesis for reinforcement of a hernia repair is a powerful surgical maneuver and results in reduced hernia recurrence rates in the absence of ventral hernia. Fascial reinforcement theoretically should improve columnar support to the spine and enhance athletic activity. The purpose of this study was to demonstrate the long-term efficacy of the restoration of the cylindrical lumbar abdominal myofascial complex as an adjunct to cosmetic abdominoplasty...

Traumatic or postsurgical flank hernias are complex and prone to recurrence, particularly at the border of the iliac crest. We reviewed our experience using suture anchors drilled into the iliac crest to fixate the mesh to bone. Our study of 10 repairs in eight patients was Institutional Review Board exempt. We obtained demographics, body mass index, diabetes, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) history, smoking status, steroid use, number of prior repairs, defect size, mesh size, number of anchors, and recurrence and infection at follow-up...

BACKGROUND: The antenatal diagnosis of a combined esophageal atresia without tracheoesophageal fistula and duodenal atresia with or without gastric perforation is a rare occurrence. These diagnoses are difficult and can be suspected on ultrasound by nonspecific findings including a small stomach and polyhydramnios. Fetal magnetic resonance imaging adds significant anatomical detail and can aid in the diagnosis of these complicated cases. Upon an extensive literature review, there are no reports documenting these combined findings in a twin pregnancy...

Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH) is a common and often lethal birth defect characterized by diaphragmatic structural defects and pulmonary hypoplasia. CDH is isolated in 60% of newborns, but may also be part of a complex phenotype with additional anomalies. We performed whole exome sequencing (WES) on 87 individuals with isolated or complex CDH and on their unaffected parents, to assess the contribution of de novo mutations in the etiology of diaphragmatic and pulmonary defects and to identify new candidate genes...

Transabdominal preperitoneal patch plasty (TAPP) is the most frequently used surgical technique for repair of an inguinal hernia in German hospitals (Federal Statistical Office, Wiesbaden). Since its initial description in 1992 by Arregui the technique has been further developed and completely standardized, so that TAPP is now suitable as an operation performed by trainee surgeons despite the complex technique. The individual operation stages have been described by many experts mainly based on their own experiences, training with other experts, participation in meetings with live or video demonstrations and reports in the literature...

BACKGROUND: Morbid obesity and its associated co-morbidities are risk factors for the development of abdominal hernias, add complexity to their repair, and increase perioperative risk. Repair of hernias with loss of domain (LoD) is further complicated by risk of abdominal compartment syndrome. A staged concept with an initial weight loss procedure might enable a reposition of the herniated viscera, improve co-morbidities for, and prohibit abdominal compartment syndrome in the subsequent repair...
