OBJECTIVE: Improvement of ventral hernia repair. BACKGROUND: Despite the use of mesh and other recent improvements, the currently popular techniques of ventral hernia repair have specific disadvantages and risks. METHODS: We developed the endoscopically assisted mini- or less-open sublay (MILOS) concept. The operation is performed transhernially via a small incision with light-holding laparoscopic instruments either under direct, or endoscopic visualization...

BACKGROUND: Predicting recovery of consciousness is one of the most essential functions of anesthesia depth monitors in anesthesia practice. Perfusion index and bispectral index are 2 indicators of the anesthesia depth monitoring with different working principles. The progression of the anesthesia emergence stages reflected by those monitors has not been well understood, especially in pediatric patients. The goals of this study were to compare the prediction probabilities of perfusion index and bispectral index in predicting awakening and in differentiating the different levels of arousal during emergence after sevoflurane anesthesia in children undergoing open inguinal hernia repairs...

Neuro-axial anesthesia has been the preferred technique for inguinal hernia repair when attempting to avoid general anesthesia in neonates and preterm infants. We present a case where an erector spinae plane block was used successfully for this surgery. Hemodynamic stability, minimal anesthetic requirements, and excellent pain control were documented. This block promises to be a valuable and safe alternative for inguinal hernia repair, accompanying the path of neuroprotective anesthesia.

OPINION STATEMENT: PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Endoscopic therapies for gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) are minimally invasive techniques which fill the gap between the medical therapy with proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) and surgical fundoplication. The main endoscopic therapies currently available in the USA are transoral incisionless fundoplication (TIF) using EsophyX device or less commonly, Medigus Ultrasonic Surgical Endostapler, and radiofrequency energy delivery to lower esophageal sphincter using Stretta device...

BACKGROUND: We have previously reported short-term outcomes after hiatal hernia repair (HHR) at the time of magnetic sphincter augmentation (MSA) for gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Here we report intermediate-term outcomes and hernia recurrence rate after concomitant MSA and HHR. METHODS: This is a retrospective cohort study of patients who underwent repair of a hiatal hernia 3 cm or larger at the time of MSA implantation between May 2009 and December 2015...

BACKGROUND: As there is a lack of clarity in terms of the tensile strength of mesh fixation for laparoscopic ventral hernia repair (LVHR), our aim was to investigate the immediate tensile strength of currently available mesh fixation devices on human anatomic specimens. METHODS: Sixteen recently deceased body donators (mean body mass index of 24.4 kg/m2) were used to test the immediate tensile strength (Newton) of 11 different LVHR mesh fixation devices. RESULTS: Each of the 11 different laparoscopic fixation devices was tested 44 times...

BACKGROUND: The mesh fixation technique used in repair of hiatal hernias and subxiphoid ventral and incisional hernias must meet strenuous requirements. In the literature, there are reports of life-threatening complications with cardiac tamponade and a high mortality rate on using tacks. The continuing practice of tack deployment for mesh fixation to the diaphragm and esophageal hiatus should be critically reviewed. METHODS: In a systematic search of the available literature in May 2017, 23 cases of severe penetrating cardiac complications were identified...

The umbilicus is an important aesthetic landmark of the abdomen. It possesses a dual blood supply that allows it to survive either on its stalk if the skin surrounding the umbilicus is incised, or through the surrounding subdermal circulation if the stalk is transected. This is an important concept to consider in order to avoid umbilical ischemia and necrosis during abdominoplasty, especially if there is any past surgical history suggesting alteration to its blood supply. This case study depicts this importance and the importance of the use of delay in order to improve perfusion to the umbilicus prior to secondary abdominoplasty...

Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is a severe congenital anomaly which impairs normal pulmonary development leading to acute and chronic respiratory failure, pulmonary hypoplasia, pulmonary hypertension, and mortality. CDH is the most common non-cardiac indication for neonatal ECMO. Prenatal and postnatal predictors of CDH severity aid in patient selection. Centers vary in preferred mode of ECMO and timing of CDH repair. Survivors of severe CDH with ECMO are at risk for long-term sequelae including neurodevelopmental delays...

BACKGROUND: Traumatic Rib Cage Hernias (TRCH) requiring operative repair are rare and there is currently no literature to guiding surgical management. METHODS: Perioperative review of TRCH over 32 years. Five operative grades were developed based on extent of tissue/bone damage, size, and location. RESULTS: Twenty-four patients (20 blunt, 4 penetrating) underwent operative repair. Lung was the herniated organ in 88% with a median of 4 rib fractures and average size of 60...

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...

PURPOSE: Little is known regarding the magnitude and timing of the risk of VTE following inguinal hernia surgery. We aimed to determine the absolute and relative rates of venous thromboembolism (VTE) following planned inguinal hernia repair. METHODS: We analysed male adults with a first inguinal hernia repair with no prior record of VTE from the Clinical Practice Research Datalink, linked to the Hospital Episode Statistics (2001-2011). Crude rates and adjusted hazard ratios (HR) of the first VTE were calculated using Cox regression analysis to compare specific time periods following the surgery compared to the general population...

PURPOSE: A persistent seroma located posterior to a mesh (PPS) remains a little known complication after laparoscopic ventral hernia repair (LVHR). The aim of this large case series was to analyse the prevalence and clinical course as well as identify related factors and independent predictors of PPS. METHODS: All 1288 adult patients who underwent a LVHR with an expanded polytetrafluoroethylene mesh (ePTFE) between January 2003 and July 2014 were reviewed. Those who underwent an abdominal computed tomography (CT) scan more than 3 months afterwards (n = 166) were included and their scans were analysed...

We herein report a case of one-stage laparoscopic surgery for extralobar pulmonary sequestration (EPS) and hiatal hernia. Our patient was a 2-year-old girl who was diagnosed as a mediastinal mass lesion. Postnatal computed tomography revealed that the mediastinal mass was an EPS. Two weeks after birth, the patient developed gastroesophageal reflux (GER), and esophagography showed a hiatal hernia. At 2 years of age, she underwent one-stage laparoscopic Nissen's fundoplication for GER with resection of the EPS in the posterior mediastinum...

Obturator hernia (OH) is a rare cause of bowel obstruction. Although several surgical approaches, including the laparoscopic approach, have been reported to date, a standard approach for treating OH has not been established. A 101-year-old woman who presented with constipation and vomiting was admitted to our hospital. CT revealed an incarcerated small bowel within the left obturator foramen, and a diagnosis of left-sided incarcerated OH with small bowel ileus was made. With the patient under general anesthesia, exploratory laparoscopy was performed; we identified an OH with an incarcerated small bowel, which was judged viable after hernia reduction...
