BACKGROUND: The technique of laparoscopic ventral hernia repair has been evolving since it was first described over 20 years ago. We report a new technique where polyester mesh was back loaded through a 5-mm port site, coming into contact with the skin. This avoids the need for any 10-12-mm ports. METHODS: A prospective database of laparoscopic ventral hernia repairs was examined. A single surgeon performed 344 laparoscopic ventral hernia repairs using this technique over 60 months...

Ventral abdominal hernia is a relatively common clinical condition that sometimes requires herniorraphy (surgical repair). The repair of ventral abdominal hernia typically requires implantation of a material to serve as a mechanical bridge across the defect in the abdominal wall. Biomaterials, such as porcine small intestinal submucosa (SIS), also serve as a lattice for cell growth into the implant and can naturally incorporate into the host tissue. Development of such repair materials benefits from use of animal models in which experimental abdominal wall defects are easily created and are amenable to repair in a reproducible fashion...

BACKGROUND: The use of surgical drains after ventral hernia repair (VHR) remains controversial. Some have concerns of increased infectious complications; others advocate that drains reduce fluid accumulation and surgical site occurrences (SSO). The aim of our study was to investigate the impact of retromuscular drains on SSO following retromuscular VHR with synthetic mesh. METHODS: Utilizing the Americas Hernia Society Quality Collaborative, patients between January 2013 and January 2016 undergoing retromuscular VHR with synthetic mesh were assessed for the presence of a drain...

BACKGROUND: Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) can be repaired open or through thoracoscopy. Thoracoscopic CDH repair could improve cosmesis and avoid the complications of laparotomy, but may have higher recurrence rates. The purpose of this study was to examine the outcomes of thoracoscopic versus open CDH repair, with regard to recurrence, perioperative parameters, and postoperative complications. METHODS: We performed a retrospective review of open versus thoracoscopic CDH repairs over an 8...

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...

BACKGROUND: Ventral incisional hernia (VIH) is not uncommon following liver transplantation. Open repair was traditionally adopted for its management. Laparoscopic repair of VIH has been performed successfully in nontransplant patients with evidence of reduced recurrence rates and hospital stay. However, the application of VIH in post-transplantation patients has not been well established. Herein, we provide our initial experience with laparoscopic repair of post-transplantation VIH. METHODS: From March 2015 to March 2016, 18 cases of post-transplantation VIH were subjected to laparoscopic repair (laparoscopy group)...

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...
