TEP hernia repair

Chao-Chuan Wu, Shih-Chieh Chueh, Yao-Chou Tsai
BACKGROUND: data: Laparoscopic adult hernia repair has the clinical advantage of allowing the surgeon to explore asymptomatic contralateral inguinal hernia. We conduct a retrospective study to compare the occurrence of contralateral metachronous inguinal hernia (CMIH) after laparoscopic total extraperitoneal (TEP) repair with or without contralateral exploration. METHODS: One hundred and fifty-one consecutive patients undergoing unilateral laparoscopic TEP repair during November 2007 to November 2012 were enrolled into groups with contralateral or no contralateral exploration...

INTRODUCTION: Spigelian hernia (SH) is a rare ventral hernia occurring near the lateral border of the rectus muscle. The treatment remains controversial and depends on institutional expertise. Although laparoscopic surgery is a good adaptation for the repair of ventral hernias, only a few cases have been reported in the literature. Here, we report a case of totally extra-peritoneal (TEP) repair for bilateral SHs. PRESENTATION OF CASE: A 74-year-old Japanese man presented with asymptomatic bulges in the right lower abdominal quadrant...

BACKGROUND: Total extraperitoneal (TEP) hernia repair has been shown to offer less pain, shorter postoperative hospital stay and earlier return to work when compared to open surgery. Our institution routinely performs TEP procedures for patients with primary or recurrent inguinal hernias. The aim of this study was to show that supervised senior residents can safely perform TEP repairs in a teaching setting. METHODS: All consecutive patients treated for inguinal hernias by laparoscopic approach from October 2008 to June 2012 were retrospectively analyzed from a prospective database...

BACKGROUND: The number of cases required to overcome the learning curve (LC) for laparoscopic extra-peritoneal inguinal hernia repair (TEP) varies widely in the literature. Less is known about the LC for inexperienced surgeons performing this procedure early in their career. The present study describes the technical challenges of TEP repair and the LC from the perspective of a recently qualified general surgeon. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Retrospective analysis of a single-surgeon experience of TEP repairs performed during the first 2 y of practice from 2011-2013...

PURPOSE: Seroma is among the most common complications of laparoscopic total extraperitoneal (TEP) for especially large indirect inguinal hernia, and may be regarded as a recurrence by some patients. A potential area localized behind the mesh and extending from the inguinal cord into the scrotum may be one of the major etiological factors of this complication. Our aim is to describe a novel technique in preventing pseudorecurrence by using fibrin sealant to close that potential dead space...

BACKGROUND: The identification of retropubic vasculature is not easy under the pressure of insufflated gas during totally extraperitoneal (TEP) inguinal hernioplasty. We aimed to present the usefulness of a maneuver that allows the clear identification of retropubic vasculature. METHODS: Vascular anatomy on the retropubic surface in 364 patients who underwent the TEP procedure from January 2005 to September 2015 was evaluated. In patients after July 2014, the pressure in the workspace was decreased from 14 to 8 mmHg before fixation of the mesh to clearly identify the veins...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair has been shown to offer patients the benefit of less postoperative pain as compared to traditional open techniques. However, the risk of experiencing significant postoperative pain may affect patient's decision making. We aimed to elucidate potential patterns of pain and the predictors of such, up to 2 years postoperatively, using both generic and specific quality of life tools. METHODS: Patients undergoing laparoscopic totally extra-peritoneal inguinal hernia repair were identified from a prospectively maintained database...

BACKGROUND: There is very scant literature on the impact of inguinal hernia mesh repair on testicular functions and sexual functions following open and laparoscopic repair. The present randomized study compares TAPP and TEP repairs in terms of testicular functions, sexual functions, quality of life and chronic groin pain. METHODS: This study was conducted from April 2012 to October 2014. A total of 160 patients with uncomplicated groin hernia were randomized to either trans-abdominal pre-peritoneal (TAPP) repair or totally extra-peritoneal (TEP) repair...

Single-port laparoscopic surgery is gaining increased attention because of its superiority in terms of cosmesis. A 1.5 cm vertical transumbilical incision is used for the single port, which is created by the glove method. We began applying single-port surgery to hernia repair in 2010, at which time we used the transabdominal preperitoneal (TAPP) approach. We began applying the totally extraperitoneal peritoneal (TEP) approach in 2013. Single-port TEP repair is now our standard procedure for inguinal hernia repair, and we consider it to be indicated for all cases of inguinal hernia unless the hernia has occurred during pregnancy, the patient is assigned to American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) class 3/4, or ascites due to liver cirrhosis is present...

INTRODUCTION: A sliding hernia is a rare type of inguinal hernia in which the hernia sac is partially formed by the wall of a viscus, such as the sigmoid colon, bladder, cecum, or appendix. Sliding hernias involving the bladder often present with obstructive urinary symptoms that could potential lead to serious complications. CASE PRESENTATION: In this case, we present a 37-year-old male with a recurrent sliding hernia containing the dome of the bladder after prior laparoscopic repair of a direct inguinal hernia with mesh...

One of the major reasons for laparoscopy not having gained popularity for repair of groin hernia is the perceived steep learning curve. This study was conducted to assess the learning curve and to predict the number of cases required for a surgeon to become proficient in laparoscopic groin hernia repair, by comparing two laparoscopic surgeons. The learning curve evaluation parameters included operative time, conversions, intraoperative complications and postoperative complications, and these were compared between the senior and the junior surgeon...

INTRODUCTION: For open and endoscopic inguinal hernia surgery, it has been demonstrated that low-volume surgeons with fewer than 25 and 30 procedures, respectively, per year are associated with significantly more recurrences than high-volume surgeons with 25 and 30 or more procedures, respectively, per year. This paper now explores the relationship between the caseload and the outcome based on the data from the Herniamed Registry. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The prospective data of patients in the Herniamed Registry were analyzed using the inclusion criteria minimum age of 16 years, male patient, primary unilateral inguinal hernia, TEP or TAPP techniques and availability of data on 1-year follow-up...

BACKGROUND: Whether total extraperitoneal inguinal hernia repair (TEP) is associated with worse outcomes compared to transabdominal preperitoneal inguinal hernia repair (TAPP) for the treatment of recurrent inguinal hernia continues to be a matter of debate. The objective of this large cohort study is to compare complications, conversion rates and postoperative length of hospital stay between patients undergoing TEP or TAPP for unilateral recurrent inguinal hernia repair. METHOD: Based on prospective data of the Swiss Association of Laparoscopic and Thoracoscopic Surgery, all patients who underwent elective TEP or TAPP for unilateral recurrent inguinal hernia between 1995 and 2006 were included...

BACKGROUND: Single-port laparoscopic surgery (SPLS) has been introduced for totally extraperitoneal (TEP) inguinal hernia repair. Clinically, however, the benefits of single-port TEP (SP TEP) are unclear. This study aimed to compare short-term surgical outcomes between SP TEP and conventional laparoscopic TEP(CL TEP) inguinal hernia repair. METHODS: Between January 2013 and February 2015, 99 men with primary unilateral inguinal hernia were randomized to the single-port or conventional 3-port TEP procedures...

BACKGROUND: For some common conditions, pre-operative clinic visits are often of little value to the patient or surgeon with transfer to the waiting list being predictable. In response to local patient feedback, we introduced a single hospital visit laparoscopic hernia surgery pathway with focus on informed consent, patient-reported outcomes and post-operative interaction with primary care services. METHODS: A single hospital visit service for elective hernia repairs was created...
