Inguinal herniorrhaphy

C-C Chiang, H-Y Yang, Y-C Hsu
BACKGROUND: While performing unilateral TEP herniorrhaphy, controversy still exists about whether to do contralateral exploration or not. Routine contralateral exploration has been proposed to prevent metachronous contralateral hernias by the repair of incidental contralateral occult hernias. Some surgeons have even proposed to do prophylactic bilateral TEP herniorrhaphy for unilateral hernia patients. To evaluate the appropriateness of not doing contralateral exploration in unilateral TEP herniorrhaphy, we reviewed our experiences under our practice of no contralateral exploration and we also reviewed other published literature...

The clinical effect of the single-site laparoscopic herniorrhaphy (SSLH) using needle instruments and double-site laparoscopic herniorrhaphy (DSLH) in the treatment of inguinal hernias in children were compared. A total of 1,010 children with inguinal hernias who were treated in Chao-Yang Hospital from March 2011 to December 2014 were selected. According to the operation method, these children were divided into the single-site group using needle instruments (n=508) and the traditional double-site group (n=502)...

Purpose: The development of emergence agitation (EA) is associated with several factors including age, preoperative anxiety, postoperative pain, anesthesia method, and surgery type. No studies have investigated whether the withdrawal reaction following rocuronium injection can predict the occurrence of EA. Therefore, we investigated this relationship in preschool-aged children undergoing inguinal herniorrhaphy, and which grade of withdrawal reaction is appropriate for identifying patients at risk of experiencing EA...

Malignant mesothelioma of the tunica vaginalis testis (MMTVT) is an extremely rare tumour, usually mimicking benign pathologies of the scrotum. Our case is an 84-year-old male patient who appealed with a painless, left-sided scrotal swelling longer than 2 months. Although the level of tumour markers was normal, ultrasonographic examination results forced us to perform an inguinal scrotal exploration. Multiple small papillary tumours, both on tunica vaginalis and tunica albuginea, were detected intraoperatively...

Laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair has certain advantages over open repair including less pain and earlier return to normal activity. Concurrent robotic inguinal hernia repair at the time of prostatectomy has been shown to have a lower recurrence rate than open repair. Robotic surgery adds high definition visualization and articulating instruments which enhances dexterity that makes laparoscopic hernia repair more refined. A series of robotic, laparoscopic, inguinal hernia repairs by a single surgeon with an extensive laparoscopic hernia experience at a single institution was undertaken to determine the role of robotic laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair in minimally invasive surgery...

A 77-year-old male underwent open repair for a right indirect inguinal hernia and complained of right scrotal pain on the third postoperative day. Color Doppler imaging revealed decreased blood flow with heterogeneous hypoechogenicity in the right testis. A Tc-99m pertechnetate testicular scan showed diffuse hyperemia and increased uptake in the right scrotum. Additional SPECT/CT revealed a photon defect in the right testicle with increased uptake in the peri-testicular area. A subsequent operation revealed a large hematoma in the right spermatic cord and consequent right testicular infarction, and right orchiectomy was performed...

BACKGROUND: Patients presenting for inguinal hernia repair report a wide range of pain. We hypothesized that patients presenting with less preoperative pain would experience a greater improvement in long-term quality of life after an inguinal hernia repair. METHODS: A total of 54 patients underwent either laparoscopic or open inguinal hernia repair and completed the Short Form 12 (SF-12) survey both preoperatively and 6 to 12 months after their repair. The physical and mental component scores (PCS and MCS) were calculated from the SF-12...

Ultrasound (US)-guided transversalis fascia plane block (TFPB) was first described by Hebbard as a technique for blockade of T12-L1 nerves. Although this technique appears similar to the quadratus lumborum 1 block, the point of injection is more caudal and anterior, specifically targeting ilioinguinal and iliohypogastric nerves. There are only few published data on US-guided TFPB demonstrating effective postoperative analgesia in iliac crest bone graft harvesting. We report the use of US-guided TFPB in a patient undergoing inguinal herniorrhaphy...

BACKGROUND: Previous data indicate that patients who undergo surgery with a postgraduate year 3 (PGY-3) resident as the junior surgeon have a lower rate of recurrence compared with PGY-1 and PGY-2 after an open inguinal herniorrhaphy. Lower PGY level was also associated with increased operative time. We hypothesize that when controlling for surgeon, technique, and hernia type, the outcomes for inguinal herniorrhaphy are the same independent of PGY level. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective review of all open unilateral inguinal hernia repairs done by residents who assisted the same senior surgeon at the Veterans Affairs North Texas Health Care System was performed...

OBJECTIVE: To enhance the management of inguinal obstruction, and to present the procedures and results of our surgical strategy for vas deferens obstruction following childhood herniorrhaphy. METHODS: We treated a total of 56 patients diagnosed with obstructive azoospermia following bilateral inguinal herniorrhaphy. First, conventional inguinal open surgery was performed. If the abdominal vas was not identified in the inguinal region, laparoscopy was used to retrieve the deeper abdominal vas deferens, which was obstructed above the internal inguinal ring...

Being located in the hypogastric area, the ilioinguinal nerve, together with iliohypogastric nerve, can be damaged during lower abdominal surgeries. Conventionally, the diagnosis of ilioinguinal neuropathy relies on clinical assessments, and standardized diagnostic methods have not been established as of yet. We hereby report the case of young man who presented ilioinguinal neuralgia with symptoms of burning pain in the right groin and scrotum shortly after receiving inguinal herniorrhaphy. To raise the diagnostic certainty, we used a real-time ultrasonography (US) to guide a monopolar electromyography needle to the ilioinguinal nerve, and then performed a motor conduction study...

Background: Ureter involvement within indirect hernias is a rare phenomenon usually identified incidentally during herniorrhaphy. Even more rare are extraperitoneal ureteral inguinal hernias, which represent about 20% of these cases and are characterized by a substantial amount of extraperitoneal fat in the hernia defect, the absence of a peritoneal sac, and associated with hydroureteronephrosis and nephroptosis. To date, repair of ureteral inguinal hernias has been performed exclusively using open surgical techniques...

Femoral hernia accounts for only 3% of all the hernias and in only 0.5%-5% of the events, the appendix can travel through the femoral hernia which is called De Garengeot hernia, and the incidence of appendicitis in this type of hernia is as low as 0.08%-0.13%. We present a case of a 69-year-old healthy woman who was referred to the emergency department by her general practitioner for CT-proven appendicitis in the femoral canal. On initial assessment, she was found to have a hard, tender lump in her right groin below the inguinal ligament, and open appendectomy and herniorrhaphy were performed...

Surgeons occasionally encounter a case of recurrent hernia in adult patients after the primary repair, and these cases are challenging to manage appropriately. This study was conducted to describe the clinical nature of recurrent inguinal hernia, compare the results of management, and identify the relationship between the specific risk factors and the occurrence of recurrent hernia. Retrospectively reviewed 58 patients who underwent the inguinal herniorrhaphy for recurrent hernia in a single institution. Analyzed clinical characteristics of recurrent hernia and tried to verify the relationship between smoking, obesity, and occurrence of recurrent hernia...
