PURPOSE: To evaluate the safety, efficacy and merits of laparoscopic repair in children with hydroceles by comparing the outcomes of laparoscopic repair and the traditional open repair (OR) procedure. The outcomes of the following three laparoscopic percutaneous extra-peritoneal closure (LPEC) approaches were also compared: conventional two-port surgery, transumbilical single-site two-port surgery and single-port surgery. METHODS: We retrospectively compared the demographic, perioperative and follow-up data from the consecutive records obtained for 382 boys who underwent OR and 950 boys who underwent LPEC at two children's medical centres in China...

INTRODUCTION: There is little consensus on optimal management for congenital diaphragmatic hernia extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (CDH ECMO) patients. Meaningful comparisons of the various approaches have been limited due to the low number of cases in institutions. In addition, the multidisciplinary reliance and rigid institutional framework of ECMO serve to further limit exposure to alternative practices. The goal of this study is to survey the international pediatric surgery community to describe the current practice trends...

INTRODUCTION: The Malone appendicostomy is a continent channel used for antegrade enemas. It requires daily cannulation and is susceptible to stenosis. We use an indwelling low-profile balloon button tube inserted through the appendix into the cecum for antegrade enemas. We hypothesized that this method is effective at managing constipation or fecal incontinence and is associated with a low rate of stenosis. METHODS: Children who underwent laparoscopic appendicostomy balloon button placement at our institution from January 2011 to April 2017 were identified...

BACKGROUND: Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is a structural birth defect associated with pulmonary hypoplasia and pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). We hypothesize that echocardiography provides a method to assess real-time right ventricle (RV) function, remodeling, and pulmonary artery (PA) flow. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Slit3 wild-type (WT) (n = 6) and knockout (KO) (n = 5) mice were analyzed at 2-3 months of age. Mice were anesthetized using isoflurane...

Laparoscopic and robotic hernia surgery offers advantages over open herniorrhaphy including faster recover and lower wound infection but is associated with rare but serious complications such as visceral injury and intestinal obstruction. We describe two cases of small bowel obstruction with strangulation that occurred shortly after routine robotic hernia surgery. We define this rare type of strangulating internal hernia as a peritoneal pocket hernia and call attention to its diagnosis and management.

BACKGROUND: Internal herniation through lesser omentum hiatus and gastrocolic ligament with malrotation is extremely rare. This type of internal hernia has rarely been described before. Preoperative diagnosis is difficult and prone to misdiagnosis. CASE PRESENTATION: A 38-year-old Chinese woman was an emergency admission to our hospital with a sudden onset of acute epigastralgia for the past 14 hours. We made a presumptive diagnosis of gastrointestinal perforation and septic shock...

Total gastrectomy and R&Y reconstruction is the standard treatment of gastric cancer except distal form one. Malnutrition is a common adverse effect of this technique, and in this study, we preset a novel technique in order to help to reduce the rate of it. We use seven dogs as participants and after total gastrectomy; we used the 10 cm of the ileum and its concomitant cecum as a neo-stomach in them. For 3 months, the dogs were evaluated in nutrition status. Three of the dogs died-one due to endocarditis and two due to internal hernia...

INTRODUCTION: An interparietal inguinal hernia is a rare form of hernia. In this type of hernia, the sac passes between the layers of the abdominal wall of the inguinal canal area. Although its treatment is very simple but pre-operative diagnosis is really a challenging issue. PRESENTATION OF CASE: A 62 years old male patient presented with complaint of a large swelling over right lower abdomen with absence of right testes since birth. The lump was measured 26×22cm in size...

INTRODUCTION/BACKGROUND: Metachronous contralateral inguinal hernias (MCH) occur in approximately 10% of pediatric patients following unilateral inguinal hernia repairs (UIHR). Laparoscopic evaluation of the contralateral internal ring is a method of identifying high-risk individuals for prophylactic contralateral exploration and repair. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to assess variation in utilization of diagnostic laparoscopy, and report costs associated with the evaluation of a contralateral patent processus vaginalis during hernia repair in pediatric hospitals...

Retzius space sparing (RSS) during laparoscopic robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RALP) has been offered as an approach that reduces perioperative complications and enables faster gaining of full urinary continence due to bladder anatomy preservation. Retro and transperitoneal techniques have been proposed, whereby RSS has been implemented. We sought to explore whether Retzius space reconstruction (RSR) following transperitoneal RALP will be an advantageous step as well. A prospective registry database of 102 consecutive transperitoneal RALP cases performed by a single surgeon was reviewed...

BACKGROUND: Extralevator abdominoperineal excision (ELAPE) is increasingly used to treat locally advanced low rectal cancer as it has been related to superior oncological outcomes than traditional abdominoperineal excision.However, ELAPE also has been associated with high perineal wound morbidity rates as it creates a larger perineal cavity than standard abdominoperineal excision. This greater defect, along with the effects of preoperative chemoradiation on wound healing, makes uneventful perineal reconstruction post-ELAPE a real challenge for the plastic surgeon...

In extremely preterm infants, acute abdominal emergencies are fortunately less common with improving care. Spontaneous intestinal perforation and necrotizing enterocolitis are conditions where emergency surgery is most often needed. Conservative medical management and placement of temporary drain are often used in the initial management. Internal hernia (IH) is an uncommon cause of bowel obstruction in neonates, is difficult to diagnose and unfortunately are found only at autopsy. The presentation in preterm infants, distinction between these conditions, and the need for early diagnosis of IH are discussed...

In the therapy of an inguinal hernia, there is a huge variety in the way of treating and the choice of surgical technique. Practice shows that the intraoperative improvisation and surgeons' own modifications of the original techniques have become part of routine procedure. No mandatory hernia registration system causes the actual detailed herniology status in our country remains unknown. The aim of the study was to summarize the results of a survey on knowledge of a hernia according to the standards developed by international hernia societies compared with everyday clinical practice...

INTRODUCTION: The mesodiverticular band (MDB) is an embryologic remnant of the vitelline circulation, which carries the arterial supply to the Meckel diverticulum. In the event of an error of involution, a patent or nonpatent arterial band persists and extends from the mesentery to the apex of the antimesenteric diverticulum. This creates a snare-like opening through which bowel loops may herniate and become obstructed. This report describes 2 rare cases of small bowel occlusion owing to an internal hernia caused by a MDB...

The bilayer patch device (Ethicon, Prolen Hernia System®) for inguinal hernia repair has a connector that acts as a ‚plug‘ in the internal inguinal ring. The position of this ‚plug‘ component may be responsible for higher incidence of chronic pain and intestinal damage. We assumed that changing the position of the connector of a bilayer patch device (PHS®) and placing it medially in Hesselbach triangle would contribute to lower incidence of chronic pain and would not result in intestinal damage, with good clinical outcome following indirect inguinal hernioplasty...

BACKGROUND: Patients with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) have structural and functional different pulmonary vessels, leading to pulmonary hypertension. They often fail to respond to standard vasodilator therapy targeting the major vasoactive pathways, causing a high morbidity and mortality. We analyzed whether the expression of crucial members of these vasoactive pathways could explain the lack of responsiveness to therapy in CDH patients. METHODS: The expression of direct targets of current vasodilator therapy in the endothelin and prostacyclin pathway was analyzed in human lung specimens of control and CDH patients...
