INTRODUCTION: Laparoscopic hernia repair is in vogue in the present era. Both the operating surgeon and the patient are concerned about the postoperative inguinodynia which has now replaced recurrence as the predominant factor affecting quality of life. AIM: Our study aimed to compare early postoperative outcomes with the standard non absorbablepolypropylene and the newer partially absorbable composite meshes. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 60 patients with unilateral uncomplicated inguinal hernia were included in the study and randomly divided into two groups, one each for one kind of mesh...

Strangulation of groin hernia can result in significant morbidity and mortality. Spontaneous external fistulation following strangulation is rare and typically occurs with Richter's hernia. Spreading Necrotizing Soft Tissue Infection (NSTI) secondary to Enterocutaneous Fistula (ECF) is an ominous sign, further worsening its prognosis. Early diagnosis and prompt surgical treatment is crucial to improve outcome. Herewith the authors are presenting a case of neglected inguinal hernia. It was complicated with ECF formation and rapidly spreading NSTI of flank...

INTRODUCTION: Chronic inguinal pain due to the inguinal hernia repair is still a serious consideration, and its incidence is evident in approximately 3%-6% of the patients. The purpose of this study was performed to assess the prevalence of chronic pain after inguinal hernia repair and the effects on the quality of life in our patient. METHODS: The records of the patients who were 18 years of age or older and had had an inguinal hernia repair under spinal anesthesia after receiving a diagnosis of inguinal hernia at this hospital from 2009 to 2015 were accessed through the hospital's data system...

Femoral hernia accounts for only 3% of all the hernias and in only 0.5%-5% of the events, the appendix can travel through the femoral hernia which is called De Garengeot hernia, and the incidence of appendicitis in this type of hernia is as low as 0.08%-0.13%. We present a case of a 69-year-old healthy woman who was referred to the emergency department by her general practitioner for CT-proven appendicitis in the femoral canal. On initial assessment, she was found to have a hard, tender lump in her right groin below the inguinal ligament, and open appendectomy and herniorrhaphy were performed...

BACKGROUND: Inguinal hernia is a common surgical condition. Inguinal hernia can present with a wide variety of symptoms. It can even extend into the scrotum resulting in what is known as an inguinoscrotal hernia. At Dr George Mukhari Hospital, approximately 5-10% of patients with inguinal hernia present with inguinoscrotal hernia. There is paucity of data on the role of laparoscopy in the management of inguinoscrotal hernia. At our institution some of the patients with inguinoscrotal hernia are offered open (Lichtenstein) repair whilst others are offered totally extraperitoneal (TEP) laparoscopic repair...

Herniosis is a well-documented phenomenon amongst patients who develop any hernia over their lifetime. Multiple hernias at different anatomical locations are quite common though they more often occur metachronously. When they present synchronously, there is an additional advantage to tackling these hernias laparoscopically as it affords the advantage of thorough inspection of the entire peritoneal cavity and the ability to address all hernias simultaneously. This video demonstrates one of the modified approached to the groin and midline that facilities a combined procedure without the need for additional port placements...

Chronic groin pain is a common problem and has been well-described in high-performance athletes. Its presentation in the recreational athlete has been less frequently described. We present the experience of a tertiary group of physicians specializing in groin pain and athletic pubalgia. Dynamic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) protocol was employed. Surgery was performed in patients failing non-surgical management. A retrospective review was performed. Of 117 mostly non-professional athletes, there were 79 MRI-positive cases of athletic pubalgia (68%)...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair is preferred over an open technique because of reduced recovery time, favorable cost effectiveness, and less chronic postoperative inguinal pain. Nevertheless, some patients develop a nociceptive inguinal pain syndrome possibly related to the presence of the mesh. This is the first study describing feasibility, safety, and effectiveness of laparoscopic mesh removal in patients with chronic pain after endoscopic hernia repair. METHODS: Pre- and intraoperative data of chronic pain patients scheduled for endoscopic mesh removal were prospectively collected by a standard evaluation form...

PURPOSE: Although clinical examination is the gold standard for the diagnosis of groin hernia, imaging procedures can improve the detection of femoral hernias, incipient hernias, and less-common types of hernias (e.g., an obturator hernia). The aim of this study is to evaluate the sensitivity and specificity of dynamic inguinal ultrasound (DIUS). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between July 2010 and June 2015, 4951 clinical and ultrasound examinations of the groin area were conducted at the Hanse-Hernienzentrum in Hamburg, Germany...

Mesh repair has significantly reduced recurrence rate after groin hernia surgery. Recently, attention has shifted to issues such as chronic pain and discomfort, leading to development of lightweight and partially re-absorbable meshes. The aim of the study was to evaluate the effect of lightweight mesh vs heavyweight mesh on post-operative pain, discomfort and quality of life in short and medium term after inguinal hernia surgery. Eight hundred and eight patients with primary inguinal hernia were allocated to anterior repair (Lichtenstein technique) using a lightweight mesh (Ultrapro(®)) or a heavyweight mesh (Prolene(®))...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this series is to determine the clinical utility of routine ultrasound (US) of the contralateral, clinically normal groin when a unilateral inguinal hernia is referred for hernia repair-specifically assessing the morbidity and short-term change in quality-of-life (QoL) due to repair of this occult contralateral hernia when also repairing the symptomatic side. TEP inguinal hernia repair affords the opportunity to repair any groin hernia through the same small incisions...

Reduction en masse is reduction of a hernial sac into the pre-peritoneal space with a loop of bowel remaining incarcerated at the neck of the sac, leading to early strangulation. This is a rare complication, usually encountered with inguinal hernias, with a false reassurance to the patient and the treating physician that complete reduction has been achieved. Unless early intervention is carried out, this condition will typically present with worsening pain and absence of an appreciable hernia bulge at the groin, and intestinal necrosis may be encountered on exploration...

BACKGROUND: Inguinal hernia is a commonly encountered cause of pain in athletes. Because of the anatomic complexity, lack of standard imaging, and the dynamic condition, there is no unified opinion explaining its underlying pathology. HYPOTHESIS: Athletes with persistent groin pain would have a high prevalence of inguinal hernia with dynamic ultrasound, and herniorrhaphy would successfully return athletes to activity. STUDY DESIGN: Case-control study...
