INTRODUCTION: Splenogonadal fusion (SGF) is a rare congenital malformation in which the spleen is connected to the gonad. Few SGF cases have been reported in the English scientific literature, and we are unaware of any previous case reports of SGF with inguinal hernia by laparoscopic transabdominal preperitoneal hernia repair (TAPP). Here, we report a case of SGF that was incidentally detected during a TAPP procedure, with an uneventful postoperative course without complications. PRESENTATION OF CASE: A 76-year-old male presented with a 10-year history of left inguinal swelling...

BACKGROUND: In endoscopic hernia repair TEP and TAPP are seen as equivalent surgical techniques in quality, but not in procedure-time. METHODS: We compared the two most common procedures in endoscopic hernia surgery. Focussing on the duration of the surgical procedure, we analyzed 7176 endoscopic hernia operations in 25 hospitals retrospectively and compared it to the literature. RESULTS: In our study TEP (n=2799) took on average 59 minutes, TAPP (n=4377) took 67...

BACKGROUND: Conventional laparoscopic surgeries of direct inguinal hernia include two methods, transabdominal preperitoneal hernioplasty (TAPP) and totally extraperitoneal hernioplasty. Both methods are performed using synthetic mesh without suturing the hernia defect and require extensive mesh coverage for not only Hesselbach's triangle but also indirect ring. For minimally invasive operation, suture of direct hernia defect was devised and performed. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of defect wall suture of laparoscopic herniorrhaphy for direct inguinal hernia patients...

Family caregivers' physical and emotional well-being may be negatively impacted while in the caregiver role. Interventions to support caregiver health have largely focused on psychological support, with only a few studies to date evaluating the role of exercise. Of the exercise studies conducted, there has been one qualitative study examining caregivers' perspectives on the value and impact of this type of intervention. This qualitative study was part of a larger mixed methods investigation including a randomised controlled trial investigating the effects of a 24-week exercise programme for cancer caregivers conducted in western Canada...

Ross River virus, a mosquitoborne alphavirus, causes epidemic polyarthritis in Australia and the Pacific region. We analyzed serum cytokine, chemokine, and growth factor levels in travelers returning to Germany from Australia. Serum samples showed elevated concentrations in the acute phase of the illness and, more pronounced, in the long-lasting convalescent phase.

Transabdominal preperitoneal patch plasty (TAPP) is the most frequently used surgical technique for repair of an inguinal hernia in German hospitals (Federal Statistical Office, Wiesbaden). Since its initial description in 1992 by Arregui the technique has been further developed and completely standardized, so that TAPP is now suitable as an operation performed by trainee surgeons despite the complex technique. The individual operation stages have been described by many experts mainly based on their own experiences, training with other experts, participation in meetings with live or video demonstrations and reports in the literature...

BACKGROUND: Totally extra-peritoneal (TEP) repair of inguinal hernia is now a standard surgical technique. A 12 mm incision in infra-umbilical region for Hasson trocar is must for TEP repair of inguinal hernia. This is the only technique known to laparoscopic surgeons. We have innovated a "555 Technique" for completing Mini TEP repair of inguinal hernia by using all three 5 mm ports. METHODS: Sixty-one consecutive patients were subjected for TEP repair of inguinal hernia by our innovative "555 Technique" since October 2014...

SCOPE: We examined whether a Brassica-rich diet was associated with an increase in the relative abundance of intestinal lactobacilli and sulphate-reducing bacteria (SRB), or alteration to the composition of the gut microbiota, in healthy adults. METHODS AND RESULTS: A randomised crossover study was performed with ten healthy adults who were fed a high- and a low-Brassica diet for 2-week periods, with a 2-week washout phase separating the diets. The high-Brassica diet consisted of six 84 g portions of broccoli, six 84 g portions of cauliflower, and six 300 g portions of a broccoli and sweet potato soup...

BACKGROUND: Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is a blinding yet treatable complication of diabetes. DR screening is highly cost-effective at reducing blindness. Amidst the rapidly growing diabetic population in Asia, the prevalence of DR in the region is relatively less well known. AIMS: To review existing national DR screening guidelines of 50 countries in Asia, compare them against the International Council of Ophthalmology (ICO) guideline, and summarise the prevalence rates of DR and sight-threatening DR (STDR) in these countries...

BACKGROUND: Family caregivers are an important health care resource and represent a significant proportion of Canadian and US populations. Family caregivers suffer physical and psychological health problems because of being in the caregiver role. Interventions to support caregiver health, including physical activity (PA), are slow to be investigated and translated into practice. PURPOSE: To examine the evidence for PA interventions in caregivers and determine factors hampering the uptake of this evidence into practice...

SURGICAL TECHNIQUES: In the HerniaSurge guidelines the highest evidence is found with respect to recommendations for mesh-based surgery techniques. This includes Lichtenstein as well as the minimally invasive TEP/TAPP surgery. For discreet symptomatic or asymptomatic inguinal hernia, watchful waiting is an option if the state of health and social situation are taken into account; however, femoral hernia should be treated promptly with a mesh technique, with laparoendoscopic techniques being the more favored option...

Due to climate change, an increase of 3-4°C in ambient temperature is projected along the South African coast and 6-7°C inland during the next 80years. The objective of this study was to investigate the association between daily ambient apparent temperature (Tapp) and daily all-cause non-accidental mortality (hereafter mortality) in Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg during a 5-year study period (2006-2010). Susceptibility by sex and age groups (<15years, 15-64years and ≥65years) was also investigated...

The new worldwide guidelines of all international hernia societies only recommend the mesh-based methods TEP, TAPP and Lichtenstein. The best mesh-free technique, the Shouldice operation, should only be used if the patient has declined the use of a mesh or no mesh is available. The systematic use of the Shouldice technique for smaller inguinal hernias and younger men should be confined to study settings. A tailored approach should be taken for mesh-based procedures to minimize the risk to patients. Due to lower pain rates the laparoendoscopic techniques TEP and TAPP are the methods of choice for primary male unilateral inguinal hernia...

We screened squirrels in Germany and the Netherlands for the novel zoonotic variegated squirrel bornavirus 1 (VSBV-1). The detection of VSBV-1 in 11 squirrels indicates a considerable risk for transmission to humans handling those animals. Therefore, squirrels in contact with humans should routinely be tested for VSBV-1.

BACKGROUND: Recurrent inguinal hernias after initial repair with mesh are preferably treated via an alternative route (e.g. posterior after anterior). For recurrent inguinal hernias after an anterior repair such as Lichtenstein's, an endoscopic approach such as the total extraperitoneal or transabdominal preperitoneal technique (TEP or TAPP) is recommended if expertise is present. The TransREctus sheath PrePeritoneal (TREPP) technique is a promising open posterior technique and could be an alternative to endoscopic methods...
