BACKGROUND: Midurethral tapes may cause long-term complications such as voiding dysfunction, groin pain, de novo urgency or mesh erosion, which necessitate a reoperation. There is a paucity of data regarding health related quality of life in patients undergoing tape removal. The aim of the study was to evaluate quality of life (QoL) and objective outcome after midurethral tape division or excision. METHODS: All patients who underwent a midurethral tape division for voiding difficulties, pain or therapy resistant de novo overactive bladder between 1999 and 2014 were invited for follow-up...

The presence of a Meckel's diverticulum in a hernia sac is known as Littré's hernia. We report a case of Littré's hernia in an 18-year old young man because of the uncommon condition. An 18-year old young patient was admitted to the Emergency Surgical Department of Zinder National Hospital, Zinder, Niger with a painful inguinoscrotal swelling of three days duration. The diagnosis of strangulated right inguinoscrotal hernia was made. At surgery, a Meckel's diverticulum was found at the antimesenteric border of the ileum in the hernia sac, the bowel loop was not viable...

Pudendal neuralgia (PN) is a result of pudendal nerve entrapment or injury, also called "Alcock syndrome." Pain that develops is often chronic, and at times debilitating. If conservative measures fail, invasive treatment modalities can be considered. The goal of this case report is to add to a small body of literature that a pulsed radiofrequency (PRF) ablation can be effectively used to treat PN and to show that high resolution MR neurography imaging can be used to detect pudendal neuropathy. CASE PRESENTATION: We present a case of a 51-year-old woman with 5 years of worsening right groin and vulva pain...

Prosthetic mesh infection after open or laparoscopic hernia repair is a rare complication. Superficial wound infection can be resolved by treatment with a combination of antibiotics and wound drainage, whereas deep-seated mesh infection, which can lead to chronic groin sepsis, usually requires removal of the mesh. A 56-year-old Japanese man was admitted to our hospital for the treatment of deep-seated mesh infection. The patient had undergone inguinal hernia repair at another hospital 18 months earlier. The operation was prosthetic mesh repair via an anterior approach...

BACKGROUND: Patients with groin, hip and pelvic pain but normal findings on MRI and minimal changes on x-ray can be a diagnostic problem. This paper looks at the arthroscopic findings of patients who have had hip pain and a positive response to an intra-articular anaesthetic but have non-contributory imaging. We hypothesized that standard MRI's were missing significant pathology and if there was a response to intra-articular local anaesthesia, pathology found during arthroscopy was likely...

We present a case of a bisphosphonate-related femur fracture in an elderly woman, who failed treatment with both cephalomedullary nail and proximal femoral locking plate, leading to successful treatment with total hip arthroplasty. Hardware failure should be included in the differential of patients with previous internal fixation of bisphosphonate-related femur fracture that present with hip or groin pain. Arthroplasty can be an acceptable salvage option in an active elderly patient with a bisphosphonate-related femur fracture...

The prolonged use of bisphosphonates has been associated with an increased rate of atypical femoral fracture. A 77-year-old woman with prolonged bisphosphonate use presented to our office with groin pain and end-stage arthritis, She was scheduled for a total hip replacement. Before the surgery and with minimal trauma, the patient then suffered a displaced atypical femoral fracture. She underwent a total hip replacement as a treatment for her fracture and her arthritis. Subsequently, the patient presented with pain in the contralateral thigh with an incomplete atypical femoral fracture...

Treatment of painful internal snapping hip via arthroscopic release of the iliopsoas tendon is becoming the preferred option over open techniques because of the benefits of minimal dissection and fewer complications. However, complications do occur with arthroscopic techniques as well. We present the case of a 33-year-old woman who presented with painful internal snapping of her right hip and underwent arthroscopic release of the iliopsoas tendon. Following the procedure she continued to complain of pain in her groin and was therefore investigated further with a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) which revealed a swelling near the femoral circumflex vessels...

BACKGROUND: The majority of surveillance studies in soccer have used a time-;loss injury definition, and many groin problems result from overuse, leading to gradually increasing pain and/or reduced performance without necessarily causing an absence from soccer training or match play. Thus, the magnitude of groin problems in soccer has probably been underestimated in previous studies based on traditional injury surveillance methods. PURPOSE: To investigate the prevalence of groin problems among soccer players of both sexes and among male soccer players at different levels of play through a new surveillance method developed to capture acute and overuse problems...

BACKGROUND: Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) most commonly manifests as anterior groin pain. Patients occasionally have posterior pain but otherwise have clinical and radiographic evidence of FAI. PURPOSE: To compare outcomes of hip arthroscopy for FAI in patients with atypical posterior pain versus a matched group with the typical anterior pain presentation. STUDY DESIGN: Cohort study; Level of evidence, 3. METHODS: Patients undergoing primary hip arthroscopy for FAI were identified from a clinical repository between January 2012 and 2014...

INTRODUCTION: In reviewing a larger group of osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures (VCFs), we found that the overall incidence of sacral insufficiency fractures (SIFs) is higher than commonly reported values. This is especially seen in patients with previous or concurrent lumbar VCFs and also in a subgroup that had lumbar stenosis or hip arthroplasty. The altered biomechanics due to associated lumbar stenosis or hip arthroplasty lead to increased mechanical stress on already weakened and deficient sacral alae, which are more vulnerable to osteoporotic weakening than other parts of the sacrum...

A woman aged 23 years with a diagnosis of mixed connective tissue disorder presented with left groin pain extending over 6 months. Workup revealed avascular necrosis of the femoral head (Grade 3) secondary to systemic lupus erythematosus and chronic steroid intake. An uncemented total hip arthroplasty was considered as the patient was only in the third decade of life. During the preop workup, careful clinical assessment had revealed multiple subcutaneous nodules affecting the extensor musculature limited to the gluteal region, anterior and posterior aspects of the thigh...

BACKGROUND: Denosumab therapy is used to reduce skeletal-related events in metastatic bone disease (MBD). There have been reports of atypical femoral fracture (AFF) in osteoporotic patients treated with denosumab but none in the context of higher dose and more frequent denosumab therapy for MBD. The goal of this study was to assess the incidence of AFF in MBD. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We conducted a retrospective review of 253 patients who received a minimum of 12 doses of denosumab at 120 mg each for MBD...

SURGICAL TECHNIQUES: In the HerniaSurge guidelines the highest evidence is found with respect to recommendations for mesh-based surgery techniques. This includes Lichtenstein as well as the minimally invasive TEP/TAPP surgery. For discreet symptomatic or asymptomatic inguinal hernia, watchful waiting is an option if the state of health and social situation are taken into account; however, femoral hernia should be treated promptly with a mesh technique, with laparoendoscopic techniques being the more favored option...

A 47-year-old woman presented with symptoms of sharp pain over the left anterior thigh with radiation from the groin to the knee. She subsequently developed numbness in that region and reduced motor strength in extensors of the left knee. Plain radiography of the spine and knee was normal. An MRI of the spine revealed an irregular extramedullary mass with intradural and extradural components, extending from the L3 to L5 vertebrae. She underwent a laminectomy and posterior spinal decompression based on a working diagnosis of nerve sheath tumour...

Atypical femoral fractures (AFFs) occur in osteoporosis patients receiving long-term bisphosphonate. Atypical femoral fractures also occur in cancer patients receiving long-term bisphosphonate or denosumab, but the prevalence is low. We describe a 53-year-old woman with a history of medullary thyroid cancer and skull metastasis who was prescribed bisphosphonate for 6 years and denosumab for 1.5 years, consecutively. Bone scintigraphy performed because of spontaneous groin pain showed uptake in the lateral aspect of the left femur, which was confirmed as impending AFF...

BACKGROUND: Pain is the most likely reason for delay in resuming normal activities after groin hernia repair. The primary aim of this study was to determine whether the use of glue to fix the mesh instead of sutures reduced acute postoperative pain after inguinal hernia repair. Secondary objectives were to compare postoperative complications, chronic pain and early recurrence rates during 1-year follow-up. METHODS: Some 370 patients who underwent Lichtenstein hernia repair were randomized to receive either glue (Histoacryl®) or non-absorbable polypropylene sutures for fixation of lightweight polypropylene mesh...
