Stefani M Schwartz, Katherine J Greco, Venugopal Reddy
BACKGROUND Pulmonary embolism is a common acute postoperative complication and is associated with 100,000 deaths per year in the USA. Tracheobronchomalacia is an uncommon condition, which presents with similar symptoms to pulmonary embolism, including hypoxemia, tachycardia, and shortness of breath. We describe a case of a patient who presented with postoperative pulmonary symptoms that were initially thought to be due to pulmonary embolism. However, following imaging investigations these symptoms were found to be due to tracheobronchomalacia...

This article aims at outlining and recommending use of prophylactic antibiotic therapy for hernia repair according to literature and newly released guidelines. We do not recommend prophylaxis for elective repair of inguinal and ventral hernias in a low infection risk environment as Denmark except in patients with incisional hernia > 10 cm or presumed increased risk for wound infection, e.g. diabetes or immunosuppression. Antibiotic prophylaxis should always be used in emergent hernia repair. We recommend a prophylactic regimen of second-generation cephalosporin given as a single dose perioperatively...

BACKGROUND: Open abdominal wall reconstruction (AWR) was previously one of the only methods available to treat complex ventral hernias. We set out to identify the impact of laparoscopy and robotics on our AWR program by performing an economic analysis before and after the institution of minimally invasive AWR. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed inpatient hospital costs and economic factors for a consecutive series of 104 AWR cases that utilized separation of components technique (57 open, 38 laparoscopic, 9 robotic)...

BACKGROUND: Despite the importance of defect size, there are no standardized recommendations on how to measure ventral hernias. Our aims were to determine (1) if any significant differences existed between various methods of measuring ventral hernias and (2) the effect of these methods of measurement on selection of mesh size. METHOD: A prospective study of all patients enrolled in a randomized trial assessing laparoscopic ventral hernia repair at a single institution from 3/2015 to 7/2016 was eligible for inclusion...

BACKGROUND: Biomaterial research has made available a biologically derived fully resorbable poly-4-hydroxybutyrate (P4HB) mesh for use in ventral and incisional hernia repair (VIHR). This study evaluates outcomes of patients undergoing VIHR with P4HB mesh. METHODS: An IRB-approved prospective pilot study was conducted to assess clinical and quality of life (QOL) outcomes for patients undergoing VIHR with P4HB mesh. Perioperative characteristics were defined. Clinical outcomes, employment status, QOL using 12-item short form survey (SF-12), and pain assessments were followed for 24 months postoperatively...

BACKGROUND: The ideal technique for ventral primary and incisional hernia repair is unclear. There is a paucity of literature from South African authors. In this report, a standardised technique of intraperitoneal mesh placement and fixation is described. METHOD: A retrospective study of 152 patient records. Each patient underwent laparoscopic ventral hernia repair between 2007 and 2016 by a single surgeon. A standardised technique was used in every operation. In each case a circumferential mesh overlap of 5 centimetres from the defect was achieved...

Herniosis is a well-documented phenomenon amongst patients who develop any hernia over their lifetime. Multiple hernias at different anatomical locations are quite common though they more often occur metachronously. When they present synchronously, there is an additional advantage to tackling these hernias laparoscopically as it affords the advantage of thorough inspection of the entire peritoneal cavity and the ability to address all hernias simultaneously. This video demonstrates one of the modified approached to the groin and midline that facilities a combined procedure without the need for additional port placements...

Ventral hernia disease is becoming increasingly prevalent and complex. Subspecialisation for patients with challenging conditions requiring surgery has been shown to improve postoperative outcomes. Worldwide, there is an emergence of specialist hernia centres using new and innovative techniques to repair large and complicated ventral hernias. After a national meeting of hernia experts, we present an algorithm to be used as a national triage system for patients with ventral hernias, with the aim of ensuring that patients are operated on by the most appropriate surgeon...

PURPOSE: Although studies have implicated smoking as a positive predictor of post-operative outcomes in inguinal hernia repair, its impact on ventral hernia repair (VHR) is not as clear. This study aims to fill this gap by investigating the impact of smoking on developing adverse 30-day post-operative outcomes in VHR. METHODS: Patients undergoing VHR between 2005 and 2014 were extracted from the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database...

INTRODUCTION: Creating pneumoperitoneum is the most challenging step during laparoscopy. The periumbilical area is the classic site for Veress needle insertion. We adopted a new access point for peritoneal insufflation. METHODS: We introduced a new point for Veress needle insertion to create pneumoperitoneum during difficult laparoscopic procedures. The needle is placed between the xiphoid process and the right costal margin, and it then proceeds toward the patient's right axilla...

BACKGROUND: Current hernia patient-reported outcome (PRO) measures were developed without patient input, greatly impairing their content validity. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to develop a conceptual model for PRO measures for ventral hernia (VH) patients. METHODS: Fifteen semi-structured, concept elicitation interviews and two focus groups employing nominal group technique were conducted with VH patients. Patients were recruited between November 2015 and July 2016 over the telephone from a five-surgeon patient cohort at our institution...

INTRODUCTION: Incisional hernia is not an uncommon complication after abdominal operation, and laparoscopic ventral hernia repair with mesh is commonly performed nowadays. It is thought to have less complication compare to the traditional open repair, yet late complication is still observed occasionally and can be disastrous. CASE REPORT: We hereby report a case of abdominal wall necrotizing fasciitis 21 months after laparoscopic incisional hernia repair in lower midline with dual mesh, due to mesh migration and erosion into urinary bladder, resulting in fistulation between bladder and abdominal wall...

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to determine the influence rapid source-control laparotomy (RSCL) has on the mortality rate in non-trauma patients with intra-abdominal infection. The hypothesis was that RSCL reduces deaths and hospital lengths of stay (LOS) in patients compared with definitive repair and primary fascial closure (PFC). METHODS: The International Classification of Diseases-10 codes for sepsis, gastric and duodenal ulcer perforation or hemorrhage, incisional or ventral hernia with obstruction, intestinal volvulus, ileus with obstruction, diverticulitis with perforation or abscess, vascular disorder of intestine, non-traumatic intestinal perforation, peritoneal abscess, and unspecified peritonitis were used to query the 2015 National Surgical Quality Improvement Project (NSQIP) database for all patients treated with either RSCL or PFC...

BACKGROUND: Surgical site infections (SSIs) remain prevalent after ventral hernia repair (VHR). In 2013-2014, a safety-net academic hospital initiated a two-pronged quality-improvement (QI) project: (1) Development and implementation of evidence-based guidelines; and (2) creation of a specialized hernia clinic to manage challenging patients and complex ventral hernias. Our objective was to decrease SSI rates after elective VHR. METHODS: The primary outcome was SSI 30 days post-operatively, which was assessed in aggregate and with a stratified analysis based on case complexity using the χ(2) test...

BACKGROUND: The modified Activities Assessment Scale (AAS) is a 13-question abdominal wall quality of life (AW-QOL) survey validated in patients undergoing ventral hernia repair (VHR). No studies have assessed AW-QOL among individuals without abdominal wall pathology. The minimal clinically important difference (MCID) of the modified AAS and its implications for the threshold at which VHR should be offered also remain unknown. Our objectives were to (1) establish the AW-QOL of patients with a clinical abdominal wall hernia versus those with no hernia, (2) determine the MCID of the modified AAS, and (3) identify the baseline quality of life (QOL) score at which patients derive little clinical benefit from VHR...

BACKGROUND: Recently introduced slow-resorbing biosynthetic and non-resorbing macroporous polypropylene meshes are being used in hernias with clean-contaminated and contaminated wounds. However, information about the use of biosynthetic meshes and their outcomes compared with polypropylene meshes in clean-contaminated and contaminated cases is lacking. Here we evaluate the use of biosynthetic mesh and polypropylene mesh in elective open ventral hernia repair (OVHR) and investigate differences in early wound morbidity after OVHR within clean-contaminated and contaminated cases...
