Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) remains one of the major challenges in neonatal surgery. Survival rate has increased in the last decades mainly due to perinatal care and surgical technique improvements. Classically, a laparotomy has been performed after cardiovascular and respiratory stabilization. Introduction of thoracoscopy in the repair of CDH brought the known advantages of reduced postoperative pain and better cosmesis. However, its safety and effectiveness have been questioned in the last few years...

PURPOSE: Laparoscopic ventral hernia repair (LVHR) with intra-peritoneal mesh placement is standard surgical treatment of abdominal wall hernias. During laparoscopic re-intervention, we examined adhesions that develop after previous intra-peritoneal mesh placement and ascertained morbidity and risk of adverse events. METHODS: This is a retrospective, case-matched comparison of three patient groups-previous intra-peritoneal mesh (Group A), previous abdominal surgery (Group B) and no previous abdominal surgery (Group C)...

The observation of an unusual case of incisional hernia, found in the epigastric zone at the site of a 5 mm trocar incision for a cholecystectomy, has caused us to describe it and to review the literature. C.A. is a male aged 59 and He came to our attention in 2014, complaining about the presence, for about three months, a swelling in the epigastric area, without occlusive symptoms. An objective examination showed an epigastric mass at the scar of the insertion site of a 5mm trocar during the cholecystectomy operation...

INTRODUCTION: Endoscopic anterior component separation (ECS) techniques facilitate tension-free midline closure of wide ventral hernia defects. We describe a novel approach with a precostal incision and a new cylindrical ballon trocar. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A single-center analysis of 19 patients undergoing ECS between January 1, 2014 and August 2, 2017 was performed with regard to improvement of technique. We currently start with a lateral precostal incision. This access in a low-fat and stable area allows for easy identification of the external oblique muscle with the ribs functioning as dorsal abutment for entering the correct plane between external and internal oblique muscles...

Endometriosis is defined by the presence of ectopic endometrial tissue outside the uterine cavity. Although it is a leading cause of chronic pelvic pain and infertility, its clinical presentation can vary, resulting in diagnostic and therapeutic challenges. Extrapelvic endometriosis is particularly difficult to diagnose owing to its ability to mimic other conditions. Endometrial tissue in a surgical scar is uncommon and often misdiagnosed as a granuloma, abscess, or malignancy. Cyclical hemorrhagic ascites due to peritoneal endometriosis is exceptionally rare...

BACKGROUND: Symptomatic perineal hernia is a rare complication after abdominoperineal resection (APR). Management of these hernias is challenging. The recurrence rate after surgical repair is high because of the difficulty of prosthetic material fixation; there is no consensus regarding the best method of repair. METHODS: We introduced a novel combined laparoscopic-perineal dual fixation technique in the repair of perineal hernias after APR. This technique begins with a perineal approach under laparoscopic vision...

Background: Laparoscopy is rapidly replacing laparotomy in the field of gynecologic surgery. Generally, there are limited data concerning the utility of single-incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS) in gynecologic surgery. Specifically, in Saudi Arabia, a third-world country, data are further limited; only one related study has been conducted so far. The purpose of this study is to retrospectively report our single-institutional experience of SILS in terms of feasibility, safety and perioperative outcomes in the management of various gynecologic conditions...

BACKGROUND/INTRODUCTION: Several reports have discussed the potential for reducing port access in laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG); however, each approach had its innate setbacks. Aiming at improving the aesthetic outcome, we report a novel approach to the LSG where we place the trocars at the bikini line in what we described as bikini line sleeve gastrectomy (BLSG). METHODS: The present work is a prospective, pilot study on the use of BLSG in patients, during the period between April and October 2016...

BACKGROUND: Inguinal hernia repair using a percutaneous internal ring suturing technique is an effective alternative technique to conventional laparoscopic hernia repair. It is one of the most commonly used approaches for laparoscopic hernia repair in children. However, most percutaneous techniques have utilized extracorporeal knotting of the suture and burying the knot subcutaneously. This approach has several drawbacks. The aim of this study is to present a modified technique for single cannula needlescopic assisted hernia repair in children...

The biocompatibility of prosthetic mesh is dependent on a number of physicochemical properties that ultimately incite an optimal foreign body response (FBR). The magnitude and character of the FBR directly affect the clinical success of the hernia repair, with too little scar resulting in bulge or hernia recurrence and too much scar causing mesh wrinkling and pain. Moreover, it is important to consider the effect of a sustained FBR and scar remodeling on the combined strength of the mesh-tissue construct over time...

Among the complications of an open appendectomy is the presentation of an incisional hernia. An interstitial or interparietal hernia is the one in which the hernia sac is present between the muscle layers of the abdominal wall which makes the presentation of a post-operative incisional interstitial hernia quite a rarity. A 52-year-old female was admitted through the outpatient clinic presenting with the complaints of discomfort and a bulge felt in the right hypochondrium for the last 3 years. Radiological investigations were able to delineate an interstitial incisional hernia through the previous open appendectomy scar...

BACKGROUND: Hernia repair represents about 25% of all pediatric surgeries. Repair can be done using an open or laparoscopic technique. The open approach has a reported recurrence rate of 1.2% but requires an additional incision to repair for a contralateral hernia. With the laparoscopic approach, no additional incision is needed but the recurrence rate has been reported to be as high as 4%. The objective of this study was to assess the safety and efficacy of a novel sutureless laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair that has the advantages of both approaches...

REVIEW
Alfred Allen E Buenafe, Alembert C Lee-Ong
Laparoendoscopic single-site surgery (LESS) for laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair (IHR) offers the potential for excellent cosmetic outcomes and maximization of the inherent advantages of minimally invasive surgery. LESS IHR is associated with a steep learning curve, which is attributable to both the IHR technique itself and the single-site technique. The technical obstacles in the single-site technique may be mitigated by employing certain maneuvers and strategies that minimize clashing between instruments and improve freedom of movement...

Andreas J Horbach, Minh Tuan Duong, Manfred Staat
There is a potential mismatch between surgical mesh implants for hernia repair of pelvic floor surgery and the host tissue because soft tissue is incompressible and meshes are compressible. Therefore, mesh and tissue may develop different stiffness over the range of deformation. In addition compressibility is related to a change of porosity of the mesh which may decrease during the deformation. Scar formation and the ingrowth of the mesh can be related to effective porosity which decreases discontinuously in uniaxial loading at a critical stretch when pore areas collapse and therefore the mesh becomes ineffective...

BACKGROUND: The popularity of single-incision procedures is on the rise as wound cosmesis is increasingly being seen as an important body image-related outcome. In this study, we assess the potential benefits of single-incision multiport laparoscopic totally extra-peritoneal (S-TEP) without using specialised ports or instruments and compare the same with the conventional laparoscopic TEP (C-TEP) surgery in terms of operative time, post-operative pain, complications, cost and cosmesis...

INTRODUCTION: The need of this study is to assess the role of collagen III in all hernias which include primary inguinal hernias ventral and recurrent abdominal hernias. Collagen type III represents the mechanically instable, less cross-linked collagen synthesized during the early days of wound healing. Quantitative assessment of collagen III in scar tissue on transversalis fascia as tissue obtained from cases operated for various hernias and compared to that of patients operated for abdominal surgeries for indications other than hernia was compared...

OBJECTIVE: Preclinical evaluation of hernia meshes is commonly performed in porcine models. We recently developed two surgically induced porcine hernia models-an incisional and an excisional model-that formed persistent hernias in the absence of graft repair. Herein, we investigate if these models will continue to form a hernia after graft repair. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Ten pigs were used to create two hernia models-a 10-cm partial-thickness incisional defect (n = 5) and an 8 × 8-cm full-thickness excisional defect (n = 5)...
