BACKGROUND: The aim of the present study was to explore incidence and severity of parastomal hernia (PSH) formation during the first 2 years after open/laparoscopic abdominoperineal resection (APR). METHODS: This was a retrospective cohort study conducted in a single institution. All patients who underwent laparoscopic/open APR for low rectal cancer within a 10-year study period were assessed for study eligibility. RESULTS: In total, 148 patients were included in the study (97 patients after laparoscopic APR; 51 patients after open APR)...

Importance: Exfoliation syndrome (XFS) is a systemic connective tissue disease, and abnormal connective tissue metabolism is implicated in inguinal hernias (IH). Associating XFS with comorbid conditions may illuminate their underlying pathophysiology and affect clinical screening and treatment. Exfoliation syndrome involves altered systemic extracellular matrix (ECM) homeostasis involving elastin metabolism. Hernias occur owing to abnormal ECM synthesis, metabolism, or repair. Inguinal hernias involve weakening or rupture of the abdominal/groin wall...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) has become the preferred bariatric procedure in many countries. However, there is one shortcoming of LSG in the long-term follow-up and this is the onset of GERD and erosive esophagitis (EE). Current evidence of the effect of SG on GERD did not consolidate to a consensus. In this study, we objectively evaluate the incidence of EE 1 year post-LSG with upper endoscopy (EGD) and try to identify the significant variables and possible underlying mechanisms of the EE post-LSG...

PURPOSE: We present our technique for performing a laparoscopic conversion of vertical banded gastroplasty (VBG) to sleeve gastrectomy (SG) in a morbidly obese patient. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A 58-year-old female with history of hypertension, diabetes, and morbid obesity (BMI 41). She had initially undergone an open VBG (BMI 58) and cholecystectomy (2002) and subsequently underwent two laparotomies for small bowel obstructions and two open ventral hernia repairs...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of preoperative visitation on postanesthesia complications after hernia surgery. DESIGN: In this quasi-experimental study, 70 patients receiving elective hernia surgery were purposefully selected. METHODS: In the evening preceding surgery, the surgical technologist visited the patient in the surgical ward. Data were collected by checklist of vital signs and postanesthesia complications...

BACKGROUND: During laparoscopic trans-abdominal pre-peritoneal hernia repair (TAPP) the positioning of the mesh around the spermatic cord could provide an additional anchoring point and ensure better defect closure, thereby preventing mesh movement and recurrence. The primary aim of our retrospective study was to determine if, during a TAPP procedure, an advantageous difference for mesh placement exists between the slit and the non-slit techniques in terms of recurrence rate. Secondary aims were intra and post-operative complications and the time required to return to normal activity...

The use of reference genes is required for relative quantification in gene expression analysis and since the stability of these genes could be variable depending on the experimental design, it has become indispensable to test the reliability of endogenous genes. Therefore, this study evaluated 10 reference candidate genes in two different experimental conditions in order to obtain stable genes to be used as reference in expression studies related to scrotal hernias in pigs. Two independent experiments were performed: one with 30 days-old MS115 pigs and the other with 60 days-old Landrace pigs...

We present a case of a newborn female with multiple anomalies demonstrating that the causes of imprinting disorders rely not only on the parent-of-origin of the chromosomal aberrations, but also the scope of genes contained in the imprinted region. The newborn female presented with prenatal polyhydramnios, neonatal respiratory distress, distal contractures, abdominal hernia, bell-shaped thorax, and abnormal ribs. The neonate required mechanical ventilation due to apnea, underwent surgery for laryngomalacia, and showed development delay by age 11 months...

BACKGROUND: Diastasis recti is a common pathology during pregnancy and puerperium, usually associated with midline hernias, with aesthetic and symptomatic problems. This approach allows us to restore the alba line, without entering the abdominal cavity. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between April 2014 and July 2017, 50 patients underwent surgery, 94% female (mean age 38). Ultrasonography confirmed diagnosis. Recti diastasis was associated with midline defects in 100%. The preaponeurotic endoscopic repair is done with suprapubic approach and in both iliac fossae...

We report a case of a 65-year-old male, who presented with respiratory complaints of cough and breathlessness, managed initially as respiratory tract infection. However, the patient did not improve, and a thorough examination and imaging revealed herniation of a gut segment into the thorax. The patient was operated and respiratory symptoms improved dramatically.

Objectives: The aim of this retrospective series is to describe the prevalence and clinical significance of the incidental findings found during pre-transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) work-up and to ascertain the clinical course of such patients. Methods: Consecutive patients undergoing TAVI from 2013 to 2015 where a TAVI CT assessment was performed (n=138) were included in the study. All incidental findings that were not expected from the patient's history were discussed at the TAVI multidisciplinary meeting in order to ascertain the clinical significance of said findings and whether they would alter the proposed course of treatment...

Background: Hiatal hernia is diagnosed by barium-swallow esophagogram or esophagogastroduodenoscopy, with possible suboptimal results. High-resolution manometry clearly identifies crural diaphragm and lower esophageal sphincter. Objectives: To assess the diagnostic accuracy of high-resolution manometry in detecting hiatal hernia compared to esophagogram and esophagogastroduodenoscopy, using as reference the surgical in vivo measurement. Methods: Patients were studied with esophagogram, esophagogastroduodenoscopy, high-resolution manometry and in vivo evaluation of the esophago-gastric junction...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic percutaneous extraperitoneal closure (LPEC) with variable devices seems to be one of the most simple and reliable methods. We described our modifications of single-port laparoscopic herniorrhaphy using an inner two-hooked cannula device with preperitoneal hydrodissection. PATIENTS AND METHODS: 1568 children with 2114 inguinal hernias were treated by single-port LPEC. Under laparoscopic visualization, the two-hooked cannula device carrying a silk suture was inserted at the point of the internal ring and could be readily kept in an identical path...

Gastric Bypass: Weight Loss with Complications Abstract. Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGBP) is the most often performed bariatric operation worldwide with internal hernia as one of the main long-term complications. To our knowledge, we report the first case of post-ischemic small-bowel strictures observed after a successful operation of an internal hernia after RYGBP. During emergency surgery a Petersen and a Brolin hernia were diagnosed and repaired. The initially ischemic small intestine was recovered. However, a week later the patient presented herself again due to ischemia-induced small-bowel strictures...
