We explored the possibility of using postmortem MRI for the diagnostics of lung hypoplasia associated with innate diaphragmatic hernia in neonates. The main experimental group consisted of 17 newborns with innate diaphragmatic hernia including 10 non-operated newborns and 7 newborns died after surgery for innate diaphragmatic hernia. It was demonstrated that postmortem MRI allows objective quantitative assessment of the absolute and relative dimensions of the lungs in the thoracic cavity and thereby reveals their hypoplasia, which contributes to the determination of tanatogenesis...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic surgery has proven safe and effective in the treatment of large hiatus hernia. Differences may exist between objectively assessed surgical outcomes, symptomatic scores, and patient-reported outcomes. METHODS: An observational, single-arm cohort study was conducted in patients undergoing primary laparoscopic repair with crura mesh augmentation and Toupet fundoplication for large (> 50% of intrathoracic stomach) type III-IV hiatus hernia...

Congenital diaphragmatic hernia is a rare disease associated with high mortality and morbidity. Antenatal ultrasound screening identifies more than 70% of cases, providing the opportunity for in-utero referral to a tertiary care center for expert assessment and perinatal management. Additional genetic and morphologic assessment may be used to rule out associated anomalies. In isolated cases, the outcome may be predicted prenatally by medical imaging. The combination of lung size and liver herniation is a widely accepted method to stratify fetuses into groups with an increasing degree of pulmonary hypoplasia and corresponding mortality rates...

PURPOSE: To evaluate abdominal ventral wound healing by using a specific biomaterial, a handmade polyamide surgical mesh. METHODS: A surgical incisional defect was made in ten rabbits to simulate a hernia in the ventral abdominal musculature. A polyamide surgical mesh was used in hernioplasty. They were monitored for surgical wound healing, and macroscopically and histologically evaluated at the end of the experiment. The polyamide surgical mesh did not cause foreign body reaction, pain, edema, or infection in the surgical site...

Littre hernia is defined as the herniation of a Meckel's diverticulum, while Richter's hernia is the herniation of a portion of the bowel wall. An extremely rare case of a combined Littre and Richter's femoral hernia is reported. An 82-year-old male presented at the emergency department with a painful golf ball-like mass at the right inguinofemoral region. With the diagnosis of incarcerated femoral hernia, he was urgently taken to the operating room. Intraoperatively, an incarcerated Littre, as well as a Richter's hernia were revealed...

With an increase in their prevalence, it has become apparent that both benign prostatic hyperplasia and radical prostatectomy for cancer can induce inguinal hernia development. An inguinal hernia is a common late complication following radical prostatectomy, with an occurrence rate of 12-25%. Following radical prostatectomy, the space of Retzius can develop adhesions to surrounding tissue, often causing difficulty during inguinal hernia repair. Conversely, inguinal hernia repair before radical prostatectomy also induces severe adhesions around the space of Retzius and causes difficulty during radical prostatectomy...

Background: Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is a rare defect of the diaphragm commonly associated with high morbidity and mortality due to lung hypoplasia and pulmonary hypertension. Although in 70% of patients the etiology of a CDH remains unknown, a multitude of causative chromosomal aberrations has been identified. Case presentation: We describe the first case of isolated 11p15 duplication with CDH. The 18.6 Mb large duplication affected 285 RefSeq genes and included the Beckwith-Wiedemann (BWS)-associated imprinting control region 2 (ICR2, KCNQ1OT1 TSS DMR), whereas the ICR1 ( H19 TSS DMR) was not affected...

Background: Both synthetic and bioprosthetic meshes play important roles in surgical procedures such as ventral hernia repair. Although sometimes used interchangeably, these devices have inherently different properties. We therefore sought to better understand how these materials interact with the host environment to optimize surgical techniques and to improve outcomes. Methods: Synthetic mesh (polypropylene, Prolene) or bioprosthetic mesh (acellular fetal/neonatal bovine dermis, SurgiMend) was implanted intraperitoneally into rats lateral to a ventral incision in a novel intra-abdominal implant model...

A 75-year-old woman underwent laparoscopic abdominoperineal resection. Four months after abdominoperineal resection, the patient complained of a perineal bulge and urination disorder. Abdominal CT showed protrusion of the small intestine and bladder to the perineum. The patient underwent laparoscopic hernia repair with mesh. The size of the hernial orifice was 7.0 × 9.0 cm, and it had no solid rim. The mesh was tacked ventrally to the pectineal ligament and dorsally to the sacrum, and then sutured on the lateral side...

Background: The main causes of intracerebral hemorrhage differ between young adults and older adults. Data regarding potential targets for early intervention in young adult patients with intracerebral hemorrhage are lacking. Methods: We retrospectively analysed data for 196 young adult patients with intracerebral hemorrhage who were admitted to Tianjin Huanhu Hospital and died within 30 days of admission between June 2005 and June 2015. The Kaplan-Meier method was used to calculate survival rate, and the log-rank test was used to determine survival rate significance...

Background/purpose: Thickening of the spermatic cord is a clinical sign of an inguinal hernia. We therefore tested whether pre-operative spermatic cord ultrasonography could reduce the incidence of metachronous inguinal hernia (MIH). Methods: Boys under 2 years old with an initial unilateral inguinal hernia were enrolled in this study. In whom the width of the asymptomatic-sided spermatic cord was ≥0.5 cm, these patients underwent contralateral groin exploration. Age at initial operation, weight, initial operation side, the sonographic width of the spermatic cord, the operative findings and presence of MIH were recorded, and the relationship among them was studied...

Interstitial hernias are a rare subtype of abdominal hernias, where sac is present in between the abdominal wall layers. Although, difficult to diagnose clinically, they are usually detected on imaging studies. Interstitial hernias presenting with undescended testis are common. Even after a meticulous online search of the medical literature, we could not find a case report of 'Strangulation of Interstitial hernia, with a strangulated undescended testis in an elderly man. We hereby present this extremely rare case, and possibly, this could be the first of its kind, case report in the medical literature...

Two major issues with laparoscopic inguinal hernia (IH) repair are recurrences and chronic groin pain (CGP). The procedure involves fixing the mesh with the tackers which is believed to increase the rate of CGP due to nerve injuries. Thus, non-fixation of mesh is being proposed but concerns remain regarding increased recurrences. We sought to look at our outcomes after we switched over to non-fixation of mesh in totally extraperitoneal repair (TEP). Retrospective review of prospectively maintained database of 171 repairs was done on 122 patients (fixation 59 and non-fixation 112) during a period of 4 years with an endeavor to complete a minimum of 1 year of clinical follow-up...

Treatment modalities for neonates born with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) have greatly improved in recent times with a concomitant increase in survival. In 2008, CDH EURO consortium, a collaboration of a large volume of CDH centers in Western Europe, was established with a goal to standardize management and facilitate multicenter research. However, limited knowledge on long-term outcomes restricts the identification of optimal care pathways for CDH survivors in adolescence and adulthood. This review aimed to evaluate the current practice of long-term follow-up within the CDH EURO consortium centers, and to review the literature on long-term outcomes published from 2000 onward...

BACKGROUND: Groin pain is a frequent complaint in surgical practice with an inguinal hernia being at the top of the differential diagnosis. The majority of inguinal hernias can be diagnosed clinically. However, patients with groin pain without signs of an inguinal hernia on anamnesis or physical examination provide a diagnostic challenge. If ultrasonography shows a hernia that could not be detected clinically, this entity is called a clinically occult hernia. It is debatable if this radiological hernia is the cause of complaints in all patients with inguinal pain...
