INTRODUCTION: Spigelian hernia (SH) is a rare ventral hernia occurring near the lateral border of the rectus muscle. The treatment remains controversial and depends on institutional expertise. Although laparoscopic surgery is a good adaptation for the repair of ventral hernias, only a few cases have been reported in the literature. Here, we report a case of totally extra-peritoneal (TEP) repair for bilateral SHs. PRESENTATION OF CASE: A 74-year-old Japanese man presented with asymptomatic bulges in the right lower abdominal quadrant...

INTRODUCTION: Neuraxial drug delivery via intrathecal drug delivery systems (IDDS) is becoming an increasingly common mode of treating intractable cancer-related pain, chronic pain, or severe spasticity. An implanted infusion pump delivers medication into the intrathecal (subarachnoid) space via a thin catheter. These pumps are commonly placed in the anterior abdominal wall. Certain conditions may render it difficult or unsafe for an IDDS to be implanted at the traditional site; thus, alternative sites have been explored...

INTRODUCTION: Herniation through gastrostomy site is an extremely rare complication of percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG). We present two unusual cases of gastrostomy site herniation, the surgical management thereof, and a corresponding review of the literature. CASE PRESENTATION: The first patient is a 65year old Caucasian male who complained of epigastric pain and a bulge at his previous gastrostomy tube incision site three weeks after its removal. Initial exam revealed a hernia measuring approximately 10cm which was later repaired by laparoscopic surgery with a composite mesh...

BACKGROUND: Incisional hernia (IH) is the most frequent complication after abdominal surgery. Long-term follow-up is crucial. Patient-reported outcome measurements (PROMs) are able to monitor patients' disease progression after treatment. Until now, there are no PROMs that assess patients after abdominal surgery or that detects patients with IH. We aimed to develop a reliable questionnaire to assist in diagnosing IH, called the "PROMIS questionnaire": Patient-Reported Outcome Measurements in the Diagnosis of Incisional Hernias...

Abdominal scar endometriosis, corresponding to the presence of an endometrial tissue near or inside an abdominal surgical incision, is a rare clinical event that can occur in women after gynecological or obstetric surgery. Generally, a triad consisting of underlying mass at the incision, cyclic menstrual scar pain, and history of previous gynecological or obstetric surgery leads to the preoperative diagnosis. In rare cases, the clinical presentation is atypical and the differential diagnosis with incarcerated incisional hernia, granuloma, abscess or other soft tissue tumors can be difficult...

INTRODUCTION: To minimize the invasiveness of laparoscopic transabdominal preperitoneal hernia repair (TAPP) for the treatment of adult inguinal hernia, we developed a new operative technique with the use of only one 5 mm port and two 2 mm punctures (TAPP-252). MATERIAL AND METHODS: To facilitate TAPP-252, we developed seven kinds of new 2 mm instruments, including grasping forceps, hook shaped electrode, mesh pusher, needle driver, scissors, laparoscope and port...

The umbilicus is our first scar. It is the last remain of our life in utero. Besides the umbilical hernia, a common pathology during the first three years of life that rarely requires surgery, there are some rare congenital abnormalities such as gastroschisis and omphalocele, which occur in about 1-5/10,000 births. Gastroschisis is a birth defect of the anterior abdominal wall, through which the fetal intestines freely protrude and are not covered by any membranes. During the 13th week prenatal ultrasound, the umbilical cord can be seen to be properly attached while the intestines float freely in the amniotic fluid...

BACKGROUND: Single-port laparoscopic cholecystectomy (SLC) requires a larger initial umbilical incision than conventional multiport laparoscopic cholecystectomy (MLC). In this retrospective analysis study we compared the demographics, clinical data, and incidence of postoperative trocar site hernias (TSH) in patients undergoing SLC with those in patients undergoing MLC. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 161 patients were included in this study. Of these patients, 104 underwent MLC, 57 SLC...

Since 1989, the authors have been using the Trabucco tension-free and sutureless technique for the repair of primary groin hernia with a pre-shaped mesh in more than 8,000 surgical procedures for complex and "simple" abdominal and inguinal hernias; over 4,000 cases have been considered in this study. The great majority of these procedures were performed under local anaesthesia and with a complete and careful nerve sparing. Compared to the Lichtenstein's technique, which is currently the golden standard treatment worldwide, there are no significant differences in the observed recurrence rate (below 2%)...

The most common cause of persistent postoperative pain after inguinal hernia repair is entrapment of a sensory nerve in the wound closure, The pain may be triggered by touching the skin, and the pain is relieved after a nerve block. In two patient cases, division of the nerve immediately terminated the pain, and the relief seemed to be permanent. Pains are common in inguinal hernia scars, but also after an appendectomy operation and Pfannenstiel's incision.

UNLABELLED: The use of synthetic adhesives such as cyanoacrylates for closing surgical wounds remains controversial. In a multicenter, prospective and randomized clinical trial, we compared a new cyanoacrylate elastic tissue adhesive, Adhflex, with standard suturing methods for repairing surgical wounds. Sixty patients who underwent surgery for inguinal hernia were randomly chosen for Adhflex or standard silk suture. We evaluated wound closure time and parameters related to wound healing and complications using the Hollander Scale; overall surgeon, patient, and independent evaluator satisfaction with scar appearance using a visual analog scale; and scar cosmesis and cosmetic outcome using the Patient and Observer Scar Assessment Scale...

A single incisional laparoscopic surgery (SILS) approach is increasingly being used, taking advantage of the minimally invasive technique. The aim of this study was to evaluate the feasibility and the validation of SILS procedure for small bowel obstruction (SBO). Sixteen consecutive patients with SBO who underwent SILS release of ileus between April 2010 and March 2015 were compared with the conventional multiport laparoscopic treatment group of 16 patients matched for age, gender, and surgical procedure. Laparoscopic treatment was completed in a total of 14 patients in SILS group and 13 in multiport laparoscopic group...

A 78 -year-old man with rectal cancer underwent abdominoperineal resection of the rectum. In the postoperative period, the patient experienced wound infection, leading to an abdominal wall hernia. Two years following surgery, a rise in the serum CEA level was seen. A metastatic tumor was detected in the right lung on chest CT. VATS right lung inferior lobe segmental resection was performed. After lobectomy, the serum CEA level continued to increase. Another metastatic tumor was detected in the right lung on chest CT...

INTRODUCTION: Bulges and hernias after abdominal free flap surgery are uncommon with rates ranging from as low as 0-36%. In the free flap breast reconstruction population, there are no clear guidelines or optimal strategies to treating postoperative bulges. We describe our minimally invasive technique and outcomes in managing bulge complications in abdominal free flap breast reconstruction patients. METHODS: A retrospective review was performed on all abdominal free flap breast reconstruction patients at Albany Medical Center from 2011 to 2014...
