BACKGROUND: Inguinal hernias and colorectal cancers are common conditions, but the presentation of a loop of bowel containing cancer within a hernia is rare. Principles of surgery include oncological resection of the involved colonic segment as well as lymphatic drainage. Based on case reports of the last several decades, there have been no reports of a case where the reduction of an inguinoscrotal hernia and oncological colectomy were performed completely laparoscopically. We present the first instance of a completely laparoscopically assisted resection and hernia repair on a patient with T4 ascending colon cancer...

We present a case of a woman with a history of Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia (CAH) diagnosed at the age of 12, who was referred to our unit for surgical treatment. Despite the initial diagnosis was an indirect inguinal hernia, it was a misdiagnosis. Once in our service, this was corrected into clitoromegaly secondary to CAH. Physical examination and imaging test discarded other abnormalities, such as secondary effects androgenization. Regarding surgical treatment, the techniques used were Spencer and Allen combined with Kumar, which are the most used for clitoroplasty but also less used in Peru...

Male infertility is a rare but certainly underestimated iatrogenic complication of inguinal hernia repair. The use of polypropylene mesh, recommended by the European Hernia Society, either via the traditional, open or laparoscopic approach, is responsible for surrounding inflammation followed by fibrosis, but there is no proven increase in vas deferens obstruction found in the literature. Prevention is essential to reduce the incidence of this complication including screening for patients at risk and mastery of surgical techniques...

BACKGROUND: 3D laparoscopy has proven to be superior to the 2D approach in experimental settings. The aim of the present study was to investigate the influence of 3D laparoscopy using a novel head-mounted display on the performance of defined steps within a laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair. This effect was investigated both in laparoscopically advanced surgeons and in beginners. METHODS: Patients suffering from symptomatic inguinal hernia were randomly assigned to laparoscopic hernia repair using either a head-mounted 3D display or a conventional 2D laparoscopic approach...

BACKGROUND: There are few reports of metastases from colon cancer to an inguinal hernia sac, and few reports of colon cancer originating in diverticula. We report a patient with carcinoma of the sigmoid colon arising in two diverticula, who presented with peritoneal seeding to an inguinal hernia sac, and a review of the literature. CASE PRESENTATION: A 55-year-old male underwent open herniorrhaphy for a left inguinal hernia. At operation, a nodule in the inguinal hernia sac was resected and histologic examination revealed adenocarcinoma, which was suspected to be a metastasis from a distant primary lesion...

BACKGROUND: Paediatric laparoscopic procedures are now becoming routine practice. Therefore, there is a need for simulated laparoscopic models to acquire part-procedural competency prior to direct patient contact in a safe learning environment. For this reason, we chose two paediatric conditions; inguinal hernia (IH) and congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH), which were combined to create the laparoscopic inguinal and diaphragmatic defect (LIDD) model. Our aim was to assess this novel surgical simulation model by determining its construct and content validity...

BACKGROUND: Inguinal hernia is one of the most common benign pathologies that primarily affects men. Primary gastrointestinal non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (PGI NHL) is the most common type of extranodal lymphoma. This study reports a rare case in which these two conditions co-exist. CASE PRESENTATION: An 85-year-old male complained of bowel movement pattern change, abdominal distension and loss of weight, without vomiting but with nausea. A computed tomographic scan of the abdomen showed a small bowel obstruction caused by a migration of a small bowel loop in the right inguinal canal, with a clinically non-reducible inguinal hernia...

BACKGROUND: We have performed laparoscopic totally extraperitoneal (TEP) repair for inguinal hernia repair for the last 20 years. We use two balloon dilators (sphere and kidney type) to dissect the preperitoneal space for the TEP repair. It may be difficult to obtain exposure in patients who previously underwent lower abdominal surgery, because of adhesions to the abdominal wall. We reviewed our experience with inguinal hernia repairs to retrospectively analyze factors that limit the laparoscopic TEP approach...

Chronic postoperative inguinal pain has become a primary outcome parameter after elective inguinal hernia repair with significant consequences affecting patient productivity, employment, and quality of life. A systematic and thorough preoperative evaluation is important to identify the etiologies and types of pain. Owing to the complex nature of chronic pain, a multimodal and multidisciplinary treatment approach is recommended. Patients with chronic pain refractory to conservative measures may be considered for surgical intervention...

Charlotte M Horne, Ajita S Prabhu
Both the transabdominal preperitoneal approach and the total extraperitoneal approach to inguinal hernias provide an effective means of repairing inguinal hernias. The robotic platform can be used and may help to decrease immediate postoperative pain; however, as this is a fairly new technique, more research will help further determine long-term outcomes. In all methods of fixation, we ensure adequate fixation medially with tacks placed on the Cooper ligament. Awareness of the nerves and vessels helps to guide dissection as well as prevent inadvertent injury during mesh fixation...

Shirin Towfigh
Open inguinal hernia approaches are varied. The best studied approaches are reviewed herein. The common factor among them is the imperative anatomy knowledge of the surgeon. This knowledge is key to improved outcomes. A tailored approach is best to determine which open technique, if any, is most appropriate for the patient. Although the anterior mesh approach is the most commonly applied, there is support in using the posterior approach or a tissue repair for subsets of patients, such as women.

The success of an inguinal hernia repair is defined by the permanence of the operation while creating the fewest complications at minimal cost and allowing patients an early return to activity. This success relies and depends on the surgeon's knowledge and understanding of groin anatomy and physiology. This article reviews relevant anatomy to inguinal hernia repair and technical steps to open tissue and mesh repairs as well as minimally invasive approaches.

INTRODUCTION: An Amyand hernia is a rare disease where the appendix is found within an inguinal hernia sac. This rare entity is named after the French born English surgeon, Dr. Claudius Amyand. Inguinal hernias are one of the most common surgeries that a general surgeon performs with more than 20 million inguinal hernia repairs performed yearly worldwide. The incidence of finding an appendix within the hernia sac is rare, occurring in less than 1% of inguinal hernia patients and when complications arise such as inflammation, perforation, or abscess formation it becomes exceptionally rare with an incidence of about 0...

PURPOSE: Inguinal hernia repairs are the most common interventions in adults in general surgery clinics. Depending on the type of mesh and repair, the incidence of mesh-related infection ranges from 0.6 to 8%. Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus is the most common microorganism causing graft infection. The aim of this study was to investigate the efficacy of nano-crystalline silver-coated polypropylene grafts against graft infection created with MRSA in rats. METHODS: A total of 60 female, Wistar albino rats were used in the study...

Gastroduodenal artery aneurysms are a very rare subtype of visceral artery aneurysms. These are divided into two groups as true and pseudoaneurysms. Pseudogastroduodenal artery aneurysms, which develops secondary to pancreatitis, is seen more frequently, whereas the true aneurysms are much less common. Spontaneous rupture may be fatal. Sudden onset of abdominal pain and hypotension are the most important clinical findings. Endovascular interventions are the gold standard for diagnosis. Regardless of their sizes, GDA aneurysms should be treated as soon as possible...
