Spigelian hernias are a rare lateral ventral abdominal hernia that carry a high risk of strangulation due to their smaller sizes, and require surgical intervention. In more complex cases involving an anticoagulated patient, perioperative management of anticoagulation must be monitored and reviewed to avoid potential pitfalls. We present an 81-year-old woman who presented with right groin pain, and was requiring warfarin anticoagulation due to her cardiac history. The spigelian hernia was diagnosed and reduced laparoscopically, and the defect was repaired and reinforced by mesh...

BACKGROUND The incarceration of a segment of bowel within a groin hernia can result in intestinal strangulation if hernia treatment is delayed. Once intestinal strangulation occurs, a bowel resection may be required, and there is an overall increased risk for postoperative complications. The aim of this study was to identify biomarkers to predict the severity of an incarcerated groin hernia. MATERIAL AND METHODS We retrospectively evaluated the records of 95 patients with incarcerated groin hernias who underwent emergency surgical correction of the hernias...

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...

BACKGROUND: The effectiveness of different procedures in routine surgical practice for hernia repair with respect to chronic postoperative pain and reoperation rates is not clear. METHODS: This was prospective cohort study based on a unique combination of patient-reported outcomes and national registry data. Virtually all patients with a groin hernia repair in Sweden between September 2012 and April 2015 were sent a questionnaire 1 year after surgery. Persistent pain, defined as at least 'pain present, cannot be ignored, and interferes with concentration on everyday activities' in the past week was the primary outcome...

INTRODUCTION: A hernia containing the vermiform appendix [de Garengeot hernia (DGH)] is an exceedingly rare event. Appendicitis occurring in this setting if further unusual. Most cases of DGH are made during inguinal exploration. In the present report, we discuss a patient who underwent an operation which revealed a DGH with appendicitis. PRESENTATION OF A CASE: A 94-year-old man with a past medical history significant for hypertension and Parkinson's disease was admitted to the hospital for the management of an event of CHF exacerbation...

Inguinal hernia mesh repair is one of the most frequent operations performed worldwide. The Lichtenstein technique and its various modifications are the most popular operations for groin hernia repair. The rate of surgical site infection (SSI) following inguinal hernia repair ranges between 0 and 14% in various series. Most of these infections developed early postoperatively. The incidence of late mesh infection following open inguinal hernia repair still remains unclear and highly variable. Late deep mesh infections are relatively rare specially after more than 10 years...

BACKGROUND: Amyand's hernia, which is the presence of a normal or pathological appendix as a part of an inguinal hernia, is a rare clinical entity. We are reporting a very rare case of left-sided incarcerated Amyand's hernia with cecum and terminal ileum involvement. CASE PRESENTATION: A 4-year-old male child with left inguinal swelling of 2-year duration presented to Goba Referral Hospital. Two days before the patient visited our hospital, the swelling had become irreducible and caused severe groin pain...

BACKGROUND: Groin hernia repair (GHR) is one of the most frequent surgical interventions practiced worldwide. Outpatient surgery for GHR is known to be safe and effective. AIM: To assess the outpatient practice for GHR in France and identify predictive factors of failure. METHOD: Forty one surgeons of the French "Club Hernie" prospectively gathered data concerning successive GHR over a period of 4 years within a multicenter database. RESULTS: A total of 9330 patients were operated on during the period of the study...

Strangulated hernia in quite common in surgical practice and always present with its typical symptoms. In this hardly found unique case, a 76-year's old female with no co morbid presented to us with abdominal pain, vomiting and diarrhoea initially and later developed left groin abscess after 4 days of swelling. It was assumed to be inguinal lymphadenitis leading to abscess formation but after complete evaluation on digital examination, diagnosis of Strangulated Femoral hernia of Richter type was made. This distinguishing presentation among the list of all hernias has to be discussed for the differential diagnosis...

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...

PURPOSE: We previously identified that the existence of a patent processus vaginalis (PPV) is an important risk factor for a postoperative inguinal hernia (IH) in patients undergoing robot-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy (RALP), and we introduced a novel plugging method to prevent IH development. The present study aimed to analyze the long-term outcomes of this plugging method. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 1026 groins were reviewed between May 2007 and March 2016...

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...

BACKGROUND: Chronic groin pain problem represents a diagnostic and management challenge. This study is reporting all patients who underwent laparoscopic exploration of the groin and pelvis for undiagnosed chronic groin pain. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective cohort study. Evaluators were not involved in the operations. Laparoscopic exploration and mesh insertion using Trans-Abdominal Pre-Preitoneal (TAPP) approach was performed for all patients. Follow up in the; clinic at 2 weeks and 6 months was arranged...

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...
