BACKGROUND: With the development of prosthetic mesh and tension free techniques, the recurrence rate following inguinal hernia repair has been reduced, and hernia outcomes research should focus on post-operative quality of life and potential complications. STUDY DESIGN: A novel hernia quality of life assessment instrument, HERQL, was developed. The HERQL questionnaire comprises a 4-item summative pain score measuring pain and discomfort resulting from various strenuous activities...

INTRODUCTION: Giant inguinal hernia is unusual, and duodenal rupture accompanying it is particularly very rare and significantly hard to manage surgically. PRESENTATION OF CASE: An 81-year-old man was admitted to our institution with upper abdominal pain. He had tenderness of the upper mid abdomen and a bilateral large inguinal hernia but he did not have pain in the inguinal-scrotal area. Computed tomography (CT) showed slight dilatation of the small bowel and stomach...

Herniation of small bowel through the peritoneal defect of the Pouch of Douglas is extremely rare type of internal hernia, and this type of internal hernia has been described as an entity of perineal hernia. Here, we describe a case of a 26-year-old female without history of abdominal surgery presenting with incarcerated small bowel hernia through a peritoneal defect of the Pouch of Douglas. She visited an emergency department presenting with abdominal pain and distension. Without improvement symptom by conservative management, an operation was performed...

BACKGROUND: Inguinal hernia repair is one of the most frequently performed surgical procedures in infants and young children. Laparoscopic hernia repair in infancy and childhood is still debatable. There are many techniques available for laparoscopic hernia repair in pediatrics. The aim of the study is to compare laparoscopic intracorporeal purse-string suture ligation of the hernia defect leaving the sac intact versus disconnection of the hernia sac with intracorporeal suture of proximal part...

We report an unusual case of a strangulated internal hernia resulting from a right paraduodenal fossa hernia (PDH) in the context of bowel malrotation. There are few documented cases of PDHs associated with a concomitant gut malrotation. Emergency laparotomy was performed based on clinical and radiological. Intraoperatively, the proximal jejunum was seen to enter a hernia sac formed by an aberrant duodenojejunal flexure located to the right of the aorta. This was presumed to be a strangulated internal hernia of the paraduodenal recess in a malrotated gut...

To determine causative factors for de novo inguinal hernia (IH), after robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP). This was a retrospective, single-center study, which included patients undergoing RARP for prostate cancer at our institution, from February 2012 to January 2015. Cox proportional hazards models were used to determine the relationships between de novo IH and various factors. A total of 284 patients were included in the analysis. Forty-two (14.7%) patients developed IH at a median period of 8 months after RARP...

BACKGROUND: Groin hernias are frequently seen in clinical practice. The purpose of this study was to determine the rate of patients who might have latent groin hernia. METHODS: During laparoscopic abdominal surgery, we observed the area around the groin lesion and attempted to evaluate the degree of recess at myopectineal orifice. The classification defining the recess was as follows: Grade 0: no recess, Grade I: slight recess with a visible bottom, Grade II: deep recess with an invisible bottom, Grade III: other organ invaginated into the recess, and Grade IV: confirmed bulging on the body surface...

BACKGROUND: Routine exploration of contralateral side in cases of unilateral inguinal hernia or hydrocele is a highly debatable topic because of various reasons. The purpose of this study was to analyse whether the contralateral groin exploration in unilateral inguinal hernia/ hydrocele is justified or not, based on ultrasonographic measurements of the inguinal ring diameter. METHODS: This cross-sectional study was conducted at two naval hospitals, PNS Rahat and PNS Shifa in Karachi, Pakistan, from June 2007 to Aug 2012...

BACKGROUND: Hernia repair represents about 25% of all pediatric surgeries. Repair can be done using an open or laparoscopic technique. The open approach has a reported recurrence rate of 1.2% but requires an additional incision to repair for a contralateral hernia. With the laparoscopic approach, no additional incision is needed but the recurrence rate has been reported to be as high as 4%. The objective of this study was to assess the safety and efficacy of a novel sutureless laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair that has the advantages of both approaches...

We performed transabdominal preperitoneal inguinal hernia repair in 46 patients (58 diseases), two of whom experienced early recurrence after mesh repair. Case 1 was a 76-year-old man with a bilateral inguinal hernia (recurrence site, left indirect hernia) after appendectomy. The recurrence occurred 1 month after transabdominal preperitoneal inguinal hernia repair. The mesh was dislocated to the lateral side, and we repaired it using the direct Kugel® patch with an anterior technique. Case 2 was a 79-year-old man with a bilateral inguinal hernia (recurrence site, right direct hernia with an orifice >3 cm) after appendectomy...

BACKGROUND: It's assumed that surgery in haemophilia can be accomplished these days safely. AIM: The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of new surgical technologies in the perioperative management and outcome of surgical procedures in haemophiliacs. METHODS: Two patients with mild haemophilia A underwent surgery (laparoscopic appendectomy and inguinal hernia repair). In both patients, the replacement therapy, with factor VIII, started 30 min before surgery...

Transomental hernias (TOHs) are a rare finding, constituting a fraction of all intestinal hernias. Here, we report the cadaveric discovery of a spontaneous TOH involving the sigmoid colon in an 82-year-old female and discuss the relevant literature. To our knowledge, a TOH involving the sigmoid colon has not been previously reported.

The single-port approach has been associated with an unacceptably high rate of umbilical port hernias in large series of patients undergoing single-port cholecystectomy and colectomy and with additional surgical risks thought secondary to technical and ergonomic limitations. A retrospective review of 378 consecutive laparoendoscopic single-site(LESS) donor nephrectomies performed between 04/15/2009 and 04/09/2014 was conducted. Twelve patients (3%) developed an umbilical hernia. Eleven (92%) were female and eight (73%) of these patients had a prior pregnancy...

Bochdalek hernias occur as a result of congenital fusion failure of the posterolateral muscular portion of the diaphragm derived from the embryonic pleuroperitoneal membrane. The vast majority of symptomatic Bochdalek hernias are diagnosed during the neonatal period. Congenital diaphragmatic hernias showing symptoms in adulthood are rare. We report the case of a 28-year-old man who presented with subacute bowel obstruction, later diagnosed to have a left-sided incarcerated Bochdalek hernia containing an ischaemic splenic flexure and the distal transverse colon...

In congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH), herniation of the abdominal organs into the fetal chest causes pulmonary hypoplasia and pulmonary hypertension, the main causes of neonatal mortality. As antenatal ultrasound screening improves, the risk of postnatal death can now be better predicted, allowing for the identification of fetuses that might most benefit from a prenatal intervention. Fetoscopic tracheal occlusion is being evaluated in a large international randomized controlled trial. We present the antenatal imaging approaches that can help identify fetuses that might benefit from antenatal therapy, and review the evolution of fetal surgery for CDH to date...

Afferent loop syndrome (ALS) is a rare complication of Billroth-II gastrojejunostomy. Causes of afferent loop obstruction include adhesions, internal hernias, intestinal strictures or malignancy. Obstruction caused by enteroliths is rare and usually requires surgery. We present the case of a 90-year-old man with a Billroth-II performed 50 years earlier and three acute pancreatitis. He presented with acute abdominal pain, without signs of pancreatitis. Upper digestive endoscopy revealed a punctiform anastomotic stricture of the afferent loop...

BACKGROUND: Living pancreas transplantation plays an important role in the treatment of patients with severe type 1 diabetes. However, pancreatectomy is very invasive for the donor, and less-invasive surgical procedures are needed. Although some reports have described hand-assisted laparoscopic surgery for distal pancreatectomy in living-donor operations, less-invasive laparoscopy-assisted (LA) procedures are expected to increase the donor pool. We herein report the outcomes of four cases of LA spleen-preserving distal pancreatectomy (Warshaw technique [WT]) in living pancreas donors...

BACKGROUND: The usual approach in hernia surgery is to select the ideal repair method independent of the patient's characteristics. In the present study, we change the approach to ask which technique is best for the individual patient`s risk profile. For this, two criteria are important: does the patient need reconstruction of the abdominal wall? or does he or she need treatment of symptoms without being exposed to unnecessarily high perioperative risks? METHODS: In a heuristic selection procedure, 486 consecutive patients were classified according to their characteristics as low-risk or high-risk for postoperative complications...

We report a case of a 53-year-old male who presented with acute onset right upper quadrant (RUQ) abdominal pain with investigations demonstrating malrotation causing midgut volvulus and subsequent intestinal obstruction. The patient was consented for an emergent operation and underwent an exploratory laparotomy. Operative findings included the presence of adhesive bands in the RUQ (Ladd's Band), volvulus of the mid-portion of the small bowel in a clockwise fashion and multiple intra-abdominal adhesions causing internal hernias...
