OBJECTIVE: The ubiquitous use of polypropylene mesh in hernia surgery has spawned a new clinical syndrome: chronic post-herniorrhaphy neuralgia. A subset of that clinical picture is dysejaculation, sexual pain, and orchialgia. We propose to identify the processes that lead to that pain. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: Specimens of vas adherent to polypropylene mesh, explanted in an attempt to control severe, life-changing inguinodynia are extremely difficult to obtain...

De Garengeot's hernia is an eponym for femoral hernia containing vermiform appendix as its content and is named after Rene-Jacques croissant De Garengeot after he first described the condition in 1731. We present a case of a 38-year-old woman who presented with right inguinal swelling for 15 years associated with pain and vomiting for 2 days. Clinical examination revealed an irreducible femoral hernia. Emergency surgery was done and inflamed appendix was found as content of the sac. Appendectomy followed by mesh repair was done...

BACKGROUND: Large sheet-type surgical materials (e.g., absorbable hemostat, adhesion barrier membranes, and flat surgical mesh) are difficult to introduce into a corporeal cavity using a 5-mm trocar; however, laparoscopic surgeries that use mainly 5-mm trocars are increasing. Furthermore, it is necessary not only to introduce but also to secure the applied surgical material and expand it from the original surgical site. To address these challenges, we developed a novel procedure for introducing such surgical materials into a corporeal cavity using a 5-mm trocar and a self-expanding origami structure, called the "chevron pleats procedure (CPP)"...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: We evaluated the effect of polypropylene mesh width on vaginal apical support, mesh elongation, and mesh tensile strength for abdominal sacrocolpopexy. METHODS: Abdominal sacrocolpopexy was performed on ten cadavers using pieces of polypropylene mesh of width 1, 2, and 3 cm. Weights of 1, 2, 3, and 4 kg were sequentially applied to the vagina. The total distance moved by the vaginal apex, and the amount of stretch of the intervening mesh segment between the sacrum and the vagina were recorded for each width...

Yu-Ting van Loon, Maaike S Ibelings
A giant pseudocyst is a rare complication after hernioplasty and is seldom seen. The pathophysiology is unclear; it characteristically does not contain epithelial lining and can be considered giant if the diameter exceeds 10 cm. Pseudocysts are mostly described after incisional hernia repairs and are usually treated with surgical resection. We report a case of a giant pseudocyst three years after totally extra peritoneal inguinal hernia repair. Laparoscopic fenestration without removing the pseudocyst with or without removal of the polypropylene mesh is a safe and effective minimal invasive approach to the treatment of a symptomatic pseudocyst and should also be considered in the approach of other large symptomatic cysts...

Background: Adhesions to intraperitoneally implanted meshes (IPOM) are a common problem following hernia surgery and may cause severe complications. Recently, we showed that missing peritoneal coverage of the intestine is a decisive factor for adhesion formation and 4DryField(®) PH (4DF) gel significantly prevents intestine-to-mesh adhesions even with use of uncoated Ultrapro(®) polypropylene mesh (UPM). The present study investigates adhesion prevention capability of coated Parietex(®) mesh (PTM) and Proceed(®) mesh (PCM) in comparison to 4DF treated UPM...

Background.The paraesophageal hiatus hernias (PHH) are relatively uncommon, but an increased incidence has been reported and they now account for 5-10% of all hiatus hernias. The surgical treatment is recommended for all the patients with this pathology because of high risk of complications: obstruction, incarceration, strangulation or perforation. The use of prostheses is recommended in the process of repairing the giant PHH because the main problem of this operation is the high rate of recurrence. Case presentation...
