Background Our aim was to evaluate the prognostic value of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-based ratio of fetal lung volume (FLV) to fetal body volume (FBV) as a marker for development of chronic lung disease (CLD) in fetuses with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH). Patients and Methods FLV and FBV were measured and the individual FLV/FBV ratio was calculated in 132 fetuses. Diagnosis of CLD was established following prespecified criteria and graded into mild/moderate/severe if present. Logistic regression analysis was used to calculate the probability of postnatal development of CLD in dependence of the FLV/FBV ratio...

Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) is associated with congenital inguinal hernia that can occur due to genetic mutation. Morgagni's hernia is a rare congenital diaphragmatic herniation and is usually diagnosed in childhood. We present a case of an 18-year-old male presenting with bilateral Morgagni's hernia with intestinal obstruction with osteogenesis imperfecta with malrotation of the gut.

INTRODUCTION: Splenogonadal fusion (SGF) is a rare congenital malformation in which the spleen is connected to the gonad. Few SGF cases have been reported in the English scientific literature, and we are unaware of any previous case reports of SGF with inguinal hernia by laparoscopic transabdominal preperitoneal hernia repair (TAPP). Here, we report a case of SGF that was incidentally detected during a TAPP procedure, with an uneventful postoperative course without complications. PRESENTATION OF CASE: A 76-year-old male presented with a 10-year history of left inguinal swelling...

BACKGROUND: Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) has been attributed to various developmental abnormalities of the underlying tissue components. N-deacetylase-N-sulfotransferase-1 (Ndst1) is a strongly expressed biosynthetic enzyme in endothelial cells, which has recently been identified as an important factor during diaphragmatic vascularization. Loss of endothelial Ndst1 has been demonstrated to cause angiogenic defects in the developing diaphragm and disrupt normal diaphragmatic development...

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to identify patient and treatment characteristics associated with early (in hospital) hernia recurrence after congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) repair. METHODS: Data from the Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Study Group registry were queried from 2007 to 2015. Recurrence of the diaphragmatic hernia after initial repair and prior to death or discharge was determined at the time of reoperation. Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) approaches included laparoscopy or thoracoscopy, and open approaches consisted of laparotomy or thoracotomy...

OBJECTIVES: We aimed to develop a more representative model for neonatal congenital diaphragmatic hernia repair in a large animal model, by creating a large defect in a fast-growing pup, using functional pulmonary and diaphragmatic read outs. BACKGROUND: Grafts are increasingly used to repair congenital diaphragmatic hernia with the risk of local complications. Growing animal models have been used to test novel materials. METHODS: 6-week-old rabbits underwent fiberoptic intubation, left subcostal laparotomy and hemi-diaphragmatic excision (either nearly complete (n = 13) or 3*3cm (n = 9)) and primary closure (Gore-Tex patch)...

BACKGROUND: Tissue expanders (TEs) can be used to assist primary closure of complicated hernias and large abdominal wall defects. However, there is no consensus regarding the optimal technique, use, or associated risk of TE in abdominal wall reconstruction. METHODS: A systematic search of PubMed and Embase databases was conducted to identify articles reporting abdominal wall reconstruction with TE techniques. English articles published between 1980 and 2016 were included on the basis of the following inclusion criteria: two-stage TE surgical technique, >3 cases, reporting of postoperative complications, hernia recurrence, and patient-based clinical data...

Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is a serious birth defect with a significant mortality and morbidity. The current and constant progress in ultrasound techniques has led to the improvement of the prenatal diagnosis of this malformation. CDH is a developmental defect whose etiology is heterogeneous and takes place when the pleuroperitoneal folds and septum transversum fail to converge and fuse. Survival depends on the extent of pulmonary hypoplasia and the disease may be potentially worsened by the presence of added congenital defects...

Left paraduodenal hernia is a rare congenital anomaly which arises from an error of rotation of the midgut; sometimes can be responsible for intestinal occlusion, that require surgery. In many cases of literature a prompt diagnosis and therapy reduced morbidity and mortality and almost all patients were discharged on 4th or 5th postoperative day (POD). We report a case of a 59 years old patient who underwent surgery for intestinal obstruction due to a massive left paraduodeneal hernia, that had a very long period (20 days) of postoperative ileus...

REVIEW
Frances Margaret Harcourt-Brown
Disorders of the reproductive tract are common in rabbits. Conditions are different in rabbits that are farmed for their meat or fur and those that are kept as pets. Farmed rabbits suffer from infections and diseases associated with pregnancy. Congenital abnormalities are more likely to be recognized and treated in pet rabbits. Pet rabbits suffer from age-related changes to their genital tract (hyperplasia, neoplasia, or hernias). Neutering is an important part of prevention and treatment of reproductive disorders...
