BACKGROUND: The antenatal diagnosis of a combined esophageal atresia without tracheoesophageal fistula and duodenal atresia with or without gastric perforation is a rare occurrence. These diagnoses are difficult and can be suspected on ultrasound by nonspecific findings including a small stomach and polyhydramnios. Fetal magnetic resonance imaging adds significant anatomical detail and can aid in the diagnosis of these complicated cases. Upon an extensive literature review, there are no reports documenting these combined findings in a twin pregnancy...

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...

The world buffalo population is about 168 million, and it is still growing, in India, China, Brazil, and Italy. In these countries, buffalo genetic breeding programs have been performed for many decades. The occurrence of congenital malformations has caused a slowing of the genetic progress and economic loss for the breeders, due to the death of animals, or damage to their reproductive ability or failing of milk production. Moreover, they cause animal welfare reduction because they can imply foetal dystocia and because the affected animals have a reduced fitness with little chances of survival...

This study investigated the effects of a single amoxicillin treatment of newborn piglets on the prevalence of hernias and abscesses until the age of nine weeks. We also studied whether the treatment was associated with growth and mortality, the need for treatment of other diseases, the proportions of ampicillin resistant coliforms and antimicrobial resistance patterns of intestinal Escherichia coli (E. coli). A total of 7156 piglets, from approximately 480 litters, were divided into two treatment groups: ANT (N = 3661) and CON (N = 3495), where piglets were treated with or without a single intramuscular injection of 75 mg amoxicillin one day after birth, respectively...

BACKGROUND: Richter's hernia is a high-risk ischaemic gastrointestinal disorder that is typically diagnosed in a delayed manner due to a lack of obvious symptoms. Spontaneous umbilical enterocutaneous fistula (ECF) resulting from an incarcerated Richter's hernia is extremely rare. CASE PRESENTATION: A 62-year-old female presented with a chief complaint of recurrent umbilical region infection for the preceding 20 months with no symptoms of ileus. Preoperative CT and fistulography revealed an incarcerated Richter's hernia complicated by an ECF...

Laparoscopic ventral hernia repair is an operation associated with significant postoperative pain, and regional anaesthetic techniques are of potential benefit. The erector spinae plane (ESP) block performed at the level of the T5 transverse process has recently been described for thoracic surgery, and we hypothesised that performing the ESP block at a lower vertebral level would provide effective abdominal analgesia. We performed pre-operative bilateral ESP blocks with 20-30 ml ropivacaine 0.5% at the level of the T7 transverse process in four patients undergoing laparoscopic ventral hernia repair...

OBJECTIVE: To describe our technique and long-term experience with a technique of a suprafascial anastomosis for the efferent continent segment in continent cutaneous urinary diversion, which aims to reduce the rate of stomal strictures. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between 1998 and 2013, up to 191 patients underwent continent cutaneous urinary diversion with a suprafascial anastomosis technique at our institution. A complete follow-up was achievable in 82 patients. The retrospective analysis included continence rates, stomal complications, and other complications related to the urinary diversion such as anastomotic insufficiencies, fistulas, or hernias...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to follow the course of the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) in first-trimester fetuses to predict the location of the small bowel. Its abnormal course aids in early detection of congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) and assessment of the contents of omphalocele. METHODS: The SMA can be easily identified in a sagittal section of the fetus by using color Doppler sonography at the 11- to 14-week scan, and normally, it has a downward course caudally to supply the intestines...

Intraabdominal tumors can cause umbilical hernia and may lead to serious consequences, such as incarcerated or necrotized intestine. However, little information is available concerning how the location and characteristics of tumors may affect the process of umbilical hernia development. A 46-year-old Japanese man presented at the department of surgery with abdominal pain and abdominal retention, which appeared on the day of presentation and 4 years before the presentation, respectively. Abdominal computed tomography revealed a suspected gastrointestinal stromal tumor(GIST)and an umbilical hernia close to the tumor, both of which were clinically diagnosed...

Laparoscopic percutaneous extraperitoneal closure of inguinal hernia with variable devices as an effective technique in minimal-access surgery for pediatric inguinal hernias in children was investigated in the present study. A Veress needle was inserted into the abdomen. Trocars, laparoscope and needle holder were placed through the umbilical incision. Under laparoscopic monitoring, a round needle was introduced into the peritoneal cavity through the anterior abdominal wall. The end of the suture inside the peritoneal cavity was left outside the peritoneal cavity in favor of ligation...

Surgical closure of giant abdominal wall hernia defects remains challenging. We report our initial experience with administration of botulinum toxin type A (BTA) for this approach in a 51-year-old female with a giant primary umbilical hernia and abdominal loss of domain. Four weeks prior to surgery, BTA was injected into the transverse abdominal and oblique muscles. During surgery the linea alba was reconstructed without lateral release procedures. At one-month follow-up, muscle relaxation had diminished and no surgical site occurrences were experienced...

BACKGROUND: Yearly approximately 4500 umbilical hernias are repaired in The Netherlands, mostly under general anesthesia. The use of local anesthesia has shown several advantages in groin hernia surgery. Local anesthesia might be useful in the treatment of umbilical hernia as well. However, convincing evidence is lacking. We have conducted a systematic review on safety, feasibility, and advantages of local anesthesia for umbilical hernia repair. METHODS: A systematic review was conducted according to the PRISMA guidelines...

INTRODUCTION: Accessory breast tissue is a rare finding in the general population with an incidence of 1-2%. Carcinomas of accessory breast tissue account for ∼0.3% of breast cancers, 5% of which are arising within a supernumerary breast. They are usually diagnosed at a later stage compared with breast cancer, due to their rarity and low clinical suspicion. CASE PRESENTATION: We present the case of a 58 years old male who was admitted to our hospital for an umbilical hernia, surgical repair...
