#1
Sheldon M Lincenberg
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...

BACKGROUND: Currently, various methods of skin closures are used in contaminated and dirty abdominal wounds without solid, evidence-based guidance. This study investigates whether closure methods affect surgical site infection (SSI) and other incisional complications. We hypothesize that open management of the skin would have the lowest complications, including SSI. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Patients age ≥18 who underwent trauma laparotomy (TL) or damage control laparotomy (DCL) from 2008-2013 and had class III/IV wounds were included...

We describe a case which had ongoing sepsis, despite adequate incision and drainage performed for an ischorectal abscess. The patient was then noted to have an ascending infection reaching the extraperitoneal space of the abdominal cavity. The case reported required multiple episodes of drainage along with lower midline incision for deep-situated abscess. Postoperatively, the abdominal wound was treated with vacuum-assisted closure dressing and antibiotics. The patient was doing well and was discharged with an appointment at the surgical outpatient department...

BACKGROUND: Abdominal wall desmoid type fibromatosis management has been changing over recent years, from an aggressive approach towards a more conservative one. When radical resection is indicated, the surgical team faces the challenge of abdominal wall reconstruction, for which optimal technique is still debated. The present study reports the experience from a single center with abdominal closures after desmoid type fibromatosis resection. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Retrospective analysis of patients who underwent abdominal wall closure after sporadic abdominal desmoid type fibromatosis radical resection from 1982 to 2013...

BACKGROUND: A moderate insufflation pressure and deep neuromuscular blockade (NMB) have been recommended in laparoscopic surgery in consideration of the possible reduction in splanchnic perfusion due to the CO2-pneumoperitoneum. Since the liver is the major organ for rocuronium metabolism, the question of whether NMB of rocuronium would change with the variation of liver perfusion during pneumoperitoneum during laparoscopic surgery merits investigation. METHODS: In this prospective study, a total of sixty female patients scheduled for either selective laparoscopic gynaecological surgery (group laparoscopy) or laparotomy for gynaecological surgery (group control) were analyzed...

BACKGROUND: Totally extra-peritoneal (TEP) repair of inguinal hernia is now a standard surgical technique. A 12 mm incision in infra-umbilical region for Hasson trocar is must for TEP repair of inguinal hernia. This is the only technique known to laparoscopic surgeons. We have innovated a "555 Technique" for completing Mini TEP repair of inguinal hernia by using all three 5 mm ports. METHODS: Sixty-one consecutive patients were subjected for TEP repair of inguinal hernia by our innovative "555 Technique" since October 2014...

BACKGROUND: Standing laparoscopic castration without orchidectomy has been shown to be a reliable method of castration of abdominal cryptorchids, but it cannot be recommended as a method for castration of inguinal cryptorchids and normal males. An alternative laparoscopic method of castration of horses with descended testes was developed. OBJECTIVES: To report the results of laparoscopically assisted abdominal transection of the spermatic cord and a modified open castration method in the standing horse for castration of descended testes in unilateral abdominal cryptorchids...

BACKGROUND: Provision of optimal postoperative analgesia should facilitate postoperative ambulation and rehabilitation. An optimal multimodal analgesia technique would include the use of nonopioid analgesics, including local/regional analgesic techniques such as surgical site local anesthetic infiltration. This article presents a novel approach to surgical site infiltration techniques for abdominal surgery based upon neuroanatomy. METHODS: Literature searches were conducted for studies reporting the neuroanatomical sources of pain after abdominal surgery...

In this cadaveric study, we explored the feasibility of a maximal mobilization of the superficial abdominal fascia, in a continuous flap, to achieve a tension-free covering of midline defects. The aponeurosis of the external oblique muscle was incised along the anterior axillary line and then detached up to the anterior rectus sheath. The latter was opened between the external and the internal oblique aponeurosis while keeping the continuity with the external oblique fascia. The obtained flap was solid and uninterrupted...

The rectus abdominis muscle (RAM) is a workhorse flap to fill or repair abdominal defects. A drawback of an open RAM harvest is donor site morbidity, and minimally invasive techniques for flap harvesting have been previously proposed but involve vertical division of the rectus fascia. We present a case of a 52-year-old woman with a recurrent rectovaginal fistula in a radiated field treated with a laparoscopic low anterior resection with simultaneous RAM flap harvest utilising a single Pfannenstiel incision...

BACKGROUND: Conventional three-incision laparoscopic appendectomy (CTLA) is considered the new golden standard for the treatment of acute appendicitis. However, single-incision laparoscopic appendectomy (SILA) can further reduce the number of abdominal incisions and visible scars. METHODS: Major databases were researched for randomized clinical trials (RCTs) comparing SILA and CTLA for acute appendicitis from January 1983 and to March 2015. The technical feasibility, effectiveness, and safety between SILA and CTLA were compared...

Ventral hernia repair is one of the most common general surgical procedures. An estimated 20 million patients with hernias are operated on worldwide every year. An incisional hernia will develop in 10-15% of patients with an abdominal incision. The risk increases to 23% in those who develop surgical site infection. Recurrence rates of up to 69% have been reported in high-risk patients.
