BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: About 20% of patients with inguinal hernia present bilateral hernias in the diagnosis. In these cases, laparoscopic procedure is considered gold standard approach. Mesh fixation is considered important step toward avoiding recurrence. However, because of cost and risk of pain, real need for mesh fixation has been debated. For bilateral inguinal hernias, there are few specific data about non fixation and mesh displacement. We assessed mesh movement in patients who had undergone laparoscopic bilateral inguinal hernia repair without mesh fixation and compared the results with those obtained in patients with unilateral hernia...

BACKGROUND: Tension-free repair using mesh is a common inguinal hernia surgical procedure. However, various complications such as mesh-related infection and recurrence may develop as a result. Moreover, although rare, there are also reports of intestinal obstruction caused by adhesion of the mesh to the intestinal wall and cases of mesh migration into various organs. Here, we report our experience with a patient in whom mesh extraction was performed due to migration of mesh into the intestinal tract following inguinal hernia surgery and formation of a fistula with the bladder...

INTRODUCTION: Internal supravesical hernia is one of the rarest types of inguinal hernia. The hernial orifice is surrounded by the transverse vesical fold, median umbilical fold, and medial umbilical fold. PRESENTATION OF CASE: A 75-year-old male presented with lower abdominal pain and nausea. Plain abdominal CT showed that the bladder was suppressed by small bowel near the left internal inguinal ring. A part of the small bowel wall seemed to be inlaid, and so the patient was diagnosed with a strangulated left inguinal hernia...

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: Abdomen is considered a magic box or a Pandora box where you will get different, unexpected pathologies along with rare entities. Appendicitis is the commonest emergency in surgery which presents challenges to surgeons because of a myriad list of differential diagnosis including both medical and gynaecological pathologies. Preoperative imaging plays an important role in diagnosis and management. AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: To study the rare atypical anatomical and surgical presentations of appendix in patients with clinical features of appendicitis...

Liposarcoma in the spermatic cord is infrequent, and accurate diagnosis of histopathological subtype is often difficult in spite of the importance of differential diagnosis for adequate treatment. A 54-year-old man underwent left-sided high orchiectomy with inguinal lymphadenectomy for a spermatic cord tumor in July 2006. The initial histopathological report diagnosed leiomyosarcoma in the spermatic cord. He then underwent surgeries for repeated recurrences a further 6 times between July 2008 and May 2014. Pathological finding at the 7th resection of the recurrent tumor was osteosarcoma, which was uncommon in the spermatic cord...

BACKGROUND: Inguinal hernia is a common pathology that necessitates surgical treatment during childhood. Most uncomplicated inguinal scrotal pathologies are considered to occur due to incomplete obliteration of the processes vaginalis (PV). The incomplete obliteration is proposed to be due to the persistence of smooth muscle cell (SMC) in the PV after birth. Immuno-histochemical studies have been published to evaluate the diversity and differentiation of SMC phenotypes in the PV resected in patients' inguinal hernia and hydrocele...

BACKGROUND: There is limited published data describing the nature of surgical admissions at a regional level in the South African context. Worcester Hospital General Surgery has introduced an electronic online database to manage its surgical services. This study uses that database to evaluate the surgical burden of disease for the Cape Winelands East and Overberg districts of the Western Cape. METHOD: Admissions data were prospectively captured from February 2012 to January 2016, then retrospectively reviewed and classified into 5 types: (1) elective surgery/investigations (ESI); (2) trauma; (3) burns; (4) non-traumatic surgical emergencies (NTSE); (5) unplanned readmission within 30 days...

PURPOSE: Inguinal hernia repair is a common general surgery procedure with low morbidity. However, postoperative urinary retention (PUR) occurs in up to 22% of patients, resulting in further extraneous treatments.This single institution series investigates whether patient comorbidities, surgical approaches, and anesthesia methods are associated with developing PUR after inguinal hernia repairs. METHODS: This is a single institution retrospective review of inguinal hernia from 2012 to 2015...

PURPOSE: This study compared the long-term recurrence rates of laparoscopic totally extraperitoneal (TEP) and open inguinal hernia repair in patients from a randomised trial completed in 1994. Laparoscopic inguinal hernia surgery, especially TEP repair, has gained widespread acceptance in recent years. There is still paucity of data on long-term follow-up comparing recurrence rates for open and laparoscopic techniques. This is the first study providing direct long-term comparative data about these techniques...
