INTRODUCTION: Cryptorchidism is common in children but is rare in the elderly. It often presents with a constellation of signs and symptoms similar to routine inguinal hernias. We present the case of an elderly man with cryptorchidism containing a Leydig cell tumor and provide clinical insights. PRESENTATION OF CASE: An-84-year old man was admitted with an incarcerated right lower quadrant hernia. Both testes were absent on palpation of the scrotum. After reduction of the hernia, computed tomography scan revealed a round lesion in the hernia sac, which was suspected to be the ectopic testis...

We aimed to explore the feasibility and the safety of the laparoscopic surgery for incarcerated indirect inguinal hernia (IIH) in children. From January 2012 to December 2014, 64 children were enrolled into this study. All 64 patients received laparoscopic surgery and we reviewed their perioperative and postoperative follow-up studies. In addition, we enrolled 60 cases of children who received traditional surgery of IIH administered through minimally invasive surgery as the control group. Results from the present study showed that the mean operation time for the laparoscopic group was 41...

Morgagni hernias (MHs) are rare and constitute about 2% of all diaphragmatic hernias. Although uncommon, it has potential for considerable morbidity if the diagnosis is missed. An elderly woman with known history of chronic asthma and constipation presented to us with vague right-sided chest pain. General physical examination was unremarkable and coincidentally diagnosed to have diabetes mellitus. Chest roentgenogram posteroanterior view revealed a right paracardiac opacity and right lateral view showed the opacity in the peridiaphragmatic area of anterior mediastinum...

INTRODUCTION: Hernias through the foramen of Winslow are extremely rare, accounting for 0.1% of all abdominal hernias. Delayed diagnosis is often observed, resulting in bowel strangulation and high mortality. METHOD: We present a case of a patient with strangulated ileum herniated through the foramen of Winslow. Recent literature review was undertaken on "PubMed" as a search platform using the keywords "foramen of Winslow" and "hernia". CASE SUMMARY: A 66-year-old man presented acutely with severe epigastric pain and vomiting...

INTRODUCTION: Prevalence of Littre's hernia (protrusion of a Meckel´s diverticulum through an opening in the abdominal wall) is very low, and Littre's hernias found in an umbilical site are uncommon. Even rarer are cases of an incarcerated hernia resulting in a surgical emergency. Trocar-site hernias are a relatively common complication after laparoscopic cholecystectomy that develop in association with insertion of wide trocars (usually at the umbilical port). CASE HISTORY: A 63-year-old female with a history of obesity, diabetes mellitus, hypertension, laparoscopic cholecystectomy and open hysterectomy arrived at hospital complaining of acute umbilical pain but with no other symptoms or fever...

Secondary perineal herniation of intraperitoneal contents represents a rare complication following procedures such as abdominoperineal rectal resection or cystectomy. We present a case of a perineal hernia formation with prolapse of an ileum neobladder following radical cystectomy and rectal resection for recurrent bladder cancer. Following consecutive resections in the anterior and posterior compartment of the lesser pelvis, the patient developed problems emptying his neobladder. Clinical examination and computed tomography revealed perineal herniation of his neobladder through the pelvic floor...

We report a case of aggressive resection of synchronous and asynchronous peritoneal dissemination of colon cancer, including metastasis to the inguinal hernia sac. A 68-year-old man who was examined for anemia was diagnosed with ascending colon cancer. He underwent right hemicolectomy and resection of the disseminated tumors at the omentum and peritoneum near the Treitz ligament (moderately differentiated tubular adenocarcinoma, pT4a [SE] N0M1P2H0, stageⅣ). After 1 year 6 months, he was readmitted for intestinal obstruction due to the recurrence of peritoneal dissemination, and underwent partial resection of the ileum, liver, and right kidney...

BACKGROUND: We reported two rare cases of congenital diaphragmatic hernia with abdominal wall closure defect, which were not associated with septum transversum diaphragmatic defects or Fryns syndrome. CASE PRESENTATION: Case 1: a Japanese baby boy was delivered at 37 weeks' gestation by urgent cesarean section because of the diagnosis of severe fetal distress. Congenital diaphragmatic hernia with omphalocele was prenatally diagnosed with fetal ultrasound. A ruptured omphalocele was confirmed at delivery...

BACKGROUND: Richter's hernia is defined as a type of hernia in which only part of the circumference of the antimesenteric border of a bowel wall is incarcerated within the hernia sac leading to ischemia, gangrene and perforation of the hollow viscus. Richter's hernia is known to cause strangulation without obstruction due to involvement of only a part of the circumference of a bowel wall. Inguino-labial Richter's hernia presenting with the complication of spontaneous entero-cutaneous fistula is rare...

INTRODUCTION: Umbilical hernia is a common finding in many cases, posing potentially life-threatening complications, such as incarceration or strangulation. The presence of malignancy in hernia sacs is, however, rather rare. PRESENTATION OF CASE: Here we report on a case of primary peritoneal adenocarcinoma found through histological examination of omental tissue, resected due to an incarcerated umbilical hernia of an 84-years-old woman. There was no macroscopic sign of malignancy during operation; only after routine examination of histological sections the diagnosis was found...

Herniation of the bowel through the foramen of Winslow is rare and accounts for 8% of all internal herniae. It typically presents clinically and biochemically as small bowel obstruction. It carries a high mortality as diagnosis is often delayed, despite bowel strangulation, as clinical signs are not typical and imaging may not be diagnostic. In the case presented here, a healthy 25-year-old man was admitted with sudden onset right-sided abdominal and back pain. He denied vomiting, and had opened his bowels...

Barrett's esophagus (BE) is a precursor of esophageal adenocarcinoma and is associated with gastroesophageal reflux disease, which is often preceded by a hiatal hernia. We describe a case of esophageal adenocarcinoma arising in long-segment BE (LSBE) associated with a hiatal hernia that was successfully treated with a laparoscopic transhiatal approach (LTHA) without thoracotomy. The patient was a 42-year-old male who had previously undergone laryngectomy and tracheal separation to avoid repeated aspiration pneumonitis...

Although many people have Meckel's diverticulum, only some experience any symptoms, most under the age of 10. In adults it is usually asymptomatic but approximately 4% develop complications. Meckel's diverticulum is usually diagnosed in the first years of life and after that the risk of the complications decreases with increasing age, with no predictive factors for the development of complications. We describe the case of a 34-year-old man admitted in the emergency department with diffuse abdominal pain, nausea, flatulence and lack of transit for feces and gas...

Amyand's hernia is defined as an appendix vermiformis - inflamed or not - within the hernia sac at the ipsilateral groin. The occurrence of this specific type of hernia is extremely low; clinical presentation is preoperatively characterised by signs and symptoms of an incarcerated inguinal hernia. There is a controversial debate on the use of prosthetic material for mesh-based hernioplasty; actually, the majority of surgeons reject it. However, in the area of predominantly prosthetic hernioplasty, this question has been raised again...

INTRODUCTION: Paraesophageal hernia with intrathoracic mesentericoaxial type of gastric volvulus is a rare clinical entity. The rotation occurs because of the idiopathic relaxation of the gastric ligaments and ascent of the stomach adjacent to the oesophagus through the hiatus defect, while the gastroesophageal junction remains in the abdomen. The open approach remains the gold standard therapy for most patients. Here we report the case of a patient with such a condition who underwent a successful laparoscopic surgery...
