Littre hernia is defined as the herniation of a Meckel's diverticulum, while Richter's hernia is the herniation of a portion of the bowel wall. An extremely rare case of a combined Littre and Richter's femoral hernia is reported. An 82-year-old male presented at the emergency department with a painful golf ball-like mass at the right inguinofemoral region. With the diagnosis of incarcerated femoral hernia, he was urgently taken to the operating room. Intraoperatively, an incarcerated Littre, as well as a Richter's hernia were revealed...

BACKGROUND: Few studies have described recurrence rates after groin hernia repair in women. Our aim was to investigate if laparoscopic repair of primary groin hernias in women results in a lower reoperation rate for recurrence compared with open repairs. Furthermore, we wished to compare hernia subtypes at primary repair and reoperation. METHODS: This nationwide cohort study was reported according to the RECORD statement. We used prospectively collected data from the Danish Hernia Database to generate a cohort of females operated for a primary groin hernia from 1998 to 2017...

With more than 20 million patients annually, inguinal hernia repair is one of the most often performed surgical procedures worldwide. The lifetime risk to develop an inguinal hernia is 27-43% for men and 3-6% for women. In spite of all advances, 11% of all patients suffer from a recurrence and 10-12% from chronic pain following primary inguinal hernia repair. By developing evidence-based guidelines and recommendations, the international hernia societies aim to improve the outcome of inguinal hernia repair due to standardization of care...

We present a case of appendicitis within a De Garengeot hernia. The patient presented to the emergency department with 4 days of worsening abdominal pain. Computed tomography examination revealed an inflamed appendix within a femoral hernia. The patient underwent appendectomy and repair of the femoral defect. Pathological examination was consistent with acute appendicitis. De Garengeot hernia is a rare phenomenon, with less than 5% of femoral hernias containing the appendix and 0.08% to 0.13% containing an incarcerated acute appendicitis...

BACKGROUND: To date, no gold standard for the surgical treatment of femoral hernia exists. Pure tissue repair as well as mesh/plug implantation, open or laparoscopic, are the most performed methods. Nevertheless, all these techniques need sutures or mesh fixation. This implies the risk of damaging sensitive structures of the femoral area, along with complications related to tissue tear and postoperative discomfort consequent to poor quality mesh incorporation. The present retrospective multicenter case series highlights the results of femoral hernia repair procedures performed with a 3D dynamic responsive implant in a cohort of 32 patients during a mean follow up of 27 months...

A hernia is defined as a protrusion of an organ or its fascia through a sac of its containing cavity. The presentation of an inflamed appendix inside an incarcerated femoral hernia is termed de Garengeot's hernia. Almost exclusively seen in the female patient, this type of hernia like all others can undergo strangulation leading to complications including appendicitis with or without perforation. Management as described in literature usually comprises open or laparoscopic approach, followed by appendectomy and repair of the femoral hernia with or without mesh...

A 2-year-old girl who was badly injured by a forklift, was presented to the emergency department with open and comminuted pelvic fracture, dislocation of right sacroiliac jointand femoral neck fracture on the left side. An urgent debridement was performed. However, postoperatively, the girl had apparent abdominal distension. The results of contrast-enhanced CT implied that the intestineherniated through the fissure formed by dislocation of the sacroiliac joint, which was confirmed during the operation. Therefore, hernia repair and reduction of the sacroiliac joint were performed by a Multidisciplinary team...

This is a report of a case who was admitted and operated on for a strangulated femoral hernia. The hernia sac contained a gangrenous appendix, which was excised and the hernia was repaired with sutures without complication. De Garengeot's hernia, although very rare, should be included in the differential diagnosis of cases with strangulated hernia and should receive the optimal treatment.

Obturator hernia (OH) is a rare condition that accounts for 0.073-1% of abdominal hernias and 0.48% of bowel obstructions. OH frequently occurs in elderly women, with an incidence that increases with age. The only treatment for OH is surgical intervention, and the approaches used vary greatly. Consequently, a well-defined consensus has not yet emerged. We assessed the efficiency and safety of the midline extraperitoneal approach for OH. Six patients with OH repaired using the midline extraperitoneal approach at KKR Sapporo Medical Center between April 2011 and January 2016 were included in the study...

INTRODUCTION: Postoperative chronic pain is an important outcome of hernia surgery. In laparoscopic hernia surgery, either fixation outside the trapezoid of disaster or no fixation is recommended to avoid postoperative pain. To avoid recurrence are transabdominal preperitoneal (TAPP) hernia repair, the myopectineal orifice must be covered with mesh during TAPP, but lifting or shrinking of the mesh can lead to recurrence. The aim of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of a novel technique for mesh fixation to prevent the mesh from lifting off...

Despite considerable advances in reconstructive surgery, massive abdominal wall defects continue to pose a significant surgical challenge. We report the case of a 72-year-old morbidly obese female patient with Clostridium septicum-related gas gangrene of the abdominal wall. After multidisciplinary treatment and multiple extensive debridements, a massive full-thickness defect (40 cm × 35 cm) of the right abdominal wall was present. The abdominal contents were covered with a resorbable mesh to prevent evisceration...

Herein we report a case of a 38-year-old men who presented with acute suprapubic pain caused by a tubular, hypoechoic, non-compressible, inguinal mass with no flow evident on color Doppler sonography. The history of the patient, the clinical signs of local inflammation and tenderness on palpation as well as the results of the Doppler ultrasound examination led to the diagnose of an inguinal hernia with bowl incarceration. However, due to a remaining uncertainty whether a bilateral or unilateral hernia was immanent and whether the bowl incarceration was caused by a right or left sided hernia the on-call surgeon initiated a computed tomography (CT) scan...
