Femoral hernia

U A Dietz, C-T Germer, A Wiegering
There are several techniques for repair of symptomatic inguinal and femoral hernias. There is an increased acceptance and tendency favoring minimally invasive procedures, such as plug or transinguinal preperitoneal mesh prosthesis (TIPP) and endoscopic procedures, such as totally extraperitoneal (TEP) and transabdominal preperitoneal (TAPP) repair. In the present review the classical techniques of Irving L. Lichtenstein (1986) and Jean Rives (1965), two indispensable procedures, are presented and the results from the literature are discussed...

PURPOSE: Anterior abdominal wall hernias are among the most commonly encountered surgical disease. We sought to identify risk factors that are associated with 30-day postoperative mortality following emergent abdominal wall hernia repair using the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (ACS NSQIP) database. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of data from the ACS NSQIP from 2005 to 2010 was performed. Patients were selected using Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) and International Classification of Disease 9 Clinical Modification (ICD9) codes for the repair of inguinal, femoral, umbilical, epigastric, ventral, or incisional hernias that were incarcerated, obstructed, strangulated, or gangrenous...

Purpose. To evaluate the feasibility, safety, and effectiveness of laparoscopic transabdominal preperitoneal (TAPP) inguinal hernia repair using a memory-ring patch (Polysoft™ mesh). Patients and Methods. Between April 2010 and March 2013, a total of 76 inguinal hernias underwent TAPP repair using Polysoft mesh in 67 adults under general anesthesia. Three different senior resident surgeons performed TAPP repair under the instruction of a specialist surgeon. Nine patients had bilateral hernias. The 76 hernias included 37 indirect inguinal hernias, 29 direct hernias, 1 femoral hernia, 1 pantaloon hernia (combined direct/indirect inguinal hernia), and 8 recurrent hernias after open anterior hernia repair...

OBJECTIVE: PemberSal osteotomy to improve femoral head coverage by rotating the acetabular roof ventrally and laterally. INDICATIONS: Insufficient coverage of the femoral head, and can be combined with other surgical procedures such as femoral intertrochanteric varus-derotation osteotomy and open reduction for developmental dysplasia and dislocation of the hip or to improve sphericity and containment in Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease. This specific acetabuloplasty can only be performed in patients with an open epiphyseal growth-plate...

INTRODUCTION: Abdominal wall hernias remain as one of the most common problems that the general surgeon has to treat. Although usually straightforward and easy to diagnose by the experienced hands, obstacles appear when contents of the hernia sac include organs. The presence of the appendix inside a femoral hernia (De Garengeot's hernia) is a rare entity which represents multiple challenges, both diagnostic and therapeutic. CASE PRESENTATION: We present a case of a 36-year-old female patient who originally presented to the ED with abdominal/groin pain and a new onset of right inguinal swelling...

From 1 January 2005 through 31 December 2014, a total of 87,480 incident diagnoses of the five types of abdominal hernia (incidence rate 63.3 cases per 10,000 person-years) were documented in the health records of 72,404 active component service members. The overall incidence rate of inguinal hernias among males was six times the rate among females. However, incidence rates of femoral, ventral/incisional, and umbilical hernias were higher among females than males. During the 10-year interval, annual incidence rates for most of the five types of hernia trended downward, but rates increased for umbilical hernias in both males and females and for ventral/ incisional hernias among females...

INTRODUCTION: The French surgeon Rene Jacques Croissant de Garengeot first described the finding of the Appendix inside a femoral hernia sac in 1731. The De Garengeot's hernia is a rare entity, comprehending only 0.5-5% of the femoral hernias. The pathogenesis of this entity is still controversial, and in the same way, there are different theories to explain the occurrence of appendicitis inside the De Garengeot's hernia. There is no standard technique in the treatment of this entity...

The surgical repair of inguinal hernia and hydrocele is one of the most common operations performed in pediatric surgery practice. This article reviews current concepts in the management of inguinal hernia and hydrocele based on the recent literature and the authors׳ experience. We describe the principles of clinical assessment and anesthetic management of children undergoing repair of inguinal hernia, underlining the differences between an inguinal approach and minimally invasive surgery (MIS). Other points discussed include the current management of particular aspects of these pathologies such as bilateral hernias; contralateral patency of the peritoneal processus vaginalis; hernias in premature infants; direct, femoral, and other rare hernias; and the management of incarcerated or recurrent hernias...

HISTORY AND CLINICAL FINDINGS: A 77-year-old man presented with acute pain and femoral swelling in his right groin. EXAMINATIONS: The clinical finding resulted in the suspicion of an irreducible, possibly incarcerated inguinal hernia. Transcutaneous ultrasound did not reveal any hints confirming the clinical suspicion. Because of the impressive clinically finding, the patient was subjected to open exploration of the groin. TREATMENT AND COURSE: Intraoperatively, the initial clinical finding could be confirmed...

PURPOSE: Many surgeons are reluctant to offer elective inguinal and femoral hernia repair (IHR) to the elderly due to concerns of increased risk. The authors sought to evaluate the outcomes of elderly patients undergoing IHR compared to the general population. METHODS: We performed a retrospective review of the 2011 NSQIP database evaluating 19,683 patients undergoing IHR. Patients were divided by age into three categories: <65, 65-79 and >80. Logistic regression analysis was used to assess impact of comorbid conditions and type of surgery on outcomes...

INTRODUCTION: The incidence of pediatric inguinal hernias ranges up to 13 %. Currently, many different techniques are being used to successfully perform herniotomy and risks of complications are minor. CASE REPORT: This case report describes a 4-year-old male patient who underwent routine herniotomy during which the femoral vein was mistaken for hernial sac and thereby the femoral vein was transected. Postoperative vascular duplex ultrasonography revealed a complete transection of the right common femoral vein...
