INTRODUCTION: Large esophageal hiatal hernias occur most commonly in elderly patients with comorbidities, in whom even an elective surgery cannot be performed without high risks. Although fundoplication is recommended for esophageal hiatal hernia repair, we prefer not to limit our options to fundoplication, as obstruction is a frequent main complaint. We favor an anterior gastropexy approach instead to perform anti-reflux surgery and prevent recurrent protrusion and torsion of the incarcerated organ with minimal risk...

Through retrospective review of consecutive charts, we compare the short-term and long-term clinical outcomes after robotic-assisted right colectomy with intracorporeal anastomosis (RIA) (n=89) and laparoscopic right colectomy with extracorporeal anastomosis (LEA) (n=135). Cohorts were similar in demographic characteristics, comorbidities, pathology, and perioperative outcomes (conversion, days to flatus and bowel movement, and length of hospitalization). The RIA cohort experienced statistically significant: less blood loss, shorter incision lengths, and longer specimen lengths than the LEA cohort...

BACKGROUND: Morbid obesity and its associated co-morbidities are risk factors for the development of abdominal hernias, add complexity to their repair, and increase perioperative risk. Repair of hernias with loss of domain (LoD) is further complicated by risk of abdominal compartment syndrome. A staged concept with an initial weight loss procedure might enable a reposition of the herniated viscera, improve co-morbidities for, and prohibit abdominal compartment syndrome in the subsequent repair...

RATIONALE: Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid-dependent pseudothrombocytopenia (EDTA-PTCP) is a rare phenomenon characterized by spuriously low platelet counts when EDTA reacts with harvested blood. However, to the best of our knowledge, only two cases involving EDTA-PTCP in postoperative patients with sepsis have been reported. Here, we describe a case of EDTA-PTCP that appeared transiently in a postoperative patient with sepsis. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 68-year-old female patient underwent laparoscopic tension-free hernioplasty for incisional hernia...

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...

Port site hernias are emerging as a problematic complication of laparoscopic surgery. The aim of this study was to elucidate the characteristics of port site hernias and determine the long-term outcomes based on the interval between primary surgery and hernia occurrence. Twenty-four patients were surgically treated for trocar site hernia between 1997 and 2013. The patients were grouped into early-onset group (EOG; less than one month) and late-onset group (LOG; more than one month) based on the interval between laparoscopic surgery and hernia onset...

Portomesenteric venous thrombosis (PMVT) is a rare but well-reported complication following laparoscopic surgery. We present three cases of PMVT following laparoscopic surgery. Our first case is a 71-year-old morbidly obese woman admitted for elective laparoscopic giant hiatus hernia (LGHH) repair. Post-operatively, she developed multi-organ dysfunction and computed tomography scan revealed portal venous gas and extensive small bowel infarct. The second patient is a 51-year-old man with known previous deep venous thrombosis who also had elective LGHH repair...

Along with advantages, evolving surgical techniques bring unique complications. A young male developed urinary symptoms a few months after undergoing laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair. On evaluation, mesh erosion into the urinary bladder was found. Removal of mesh with repair of bladder was done. A vesico-cutaneous fistula resulted which was managed with repeat surgery. We review all such cases reported in literature; discuss the etiopathogenesis, presentation, management and possible preventive measures...

INTRODUCTION: Oesophagectomy for oesophageal carcinoma carries a high risk of significant morbidity and mortality. Delayed gastric emptying is a relatively common complication following this procedure. A variety of medical, surgical and endoscopic strategies have been described to manage it. The vast majority of cases are related to post-operative pyloric dysfunction and are amenable to conventional management strategies. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We present a new case of a patient with a duodenal hiatus hernia resulting in extrinsic gastroduodenal compression by the massively distended gastric conduit as a cause of gastric outlet obstruction following laparoscopic-assisted Ivor-Lewis oesophagectomy 2 years previously...

Perineal hernia is an uncommon complication following abdominoperineal rectum resection. Several surgical procedures have been proposed for perineal hernia repair, including perineal, laparoscopic and abdominal approaches. Repair techniques can be classified into primary suture techniques, mesh placements and repairs with autogenous tissue. We report a 68-year-old man with a perineal hernia, who underwent a pelvic floor reconstruction with a transperineal composite mesh and a gluteal fasciocutaneous rotation flap...
