The use of synthetic mesh in the abdominal compartment has recently become a topic of debate as high profile public cases have called into question their safety. Several case reports have demonstrated significant complications due to intra-abdominal mesh. Furthermore, some studies have suggested that the rates of these severe complications are underestimated. We present the case of a patient who developed an enteroenteric and enterocutaenous fistulae, an abdominal wall collection and an intraperitoneal inflammatory mass from intraluminal migration of a synthetic mesh inserted during laparoscopic incisional hernia repair...

Here we present a 32-y-old rhesus macaque (Macaca mulatta) with a large recurrent ventral incisional hernia. The initial surgery included midline celiotomy for treatment of endometriosis, in which the animal developed a hernia that was repaired with interposition of mesh. Hernia recurrence at 1 y resulted in a defect measuring 7 × 13 cm, with loss of abdominal domain. Skin breakdown was noted with areas of exposed mesh through the skin with associated acute on chronic infection. Clinically, the animal was lethargic, not eating, and failing to thrive...

We report a case in which abdominal tattoo margins were modified and used to hide the surgical incision for desmoid tumour removal. Our patient is a 37-year-old female with history remarkable for atrial septal defect closure at the age of ten, but not for previous abdominal surgeries or trauma. A desmoid tumour diagnosis was made upon needle biopsy of the 5 × 4 cm2 mass confined to the rectus abdominis. Subsequently, tumour was resected with an incision through the tattoo upper margin and abdominal wall was reconstructed with primary fascial closure mesh reinforced...

INTRODUCTION: Incisional hernias of the abdominal wall are frequent complication after laparotomy (9-20%). Open incisional hernia repair with sublay mesh placement (SMP) on the posterior rectus sheath is described as being a sufficient method for repairing incisional hernia. In order to ensure wound healing and to therefore prevent recurrence, carrying an abdominal binder (AB) or a pressure dressing (PD) and physical rest for a certain time is the common postoperative recommendation, though the evidence for post-operative treatment is low...

We reported a case that could be cured with endoscopic topical therapyusing mesh for refractorysuture failure after rectal cancer surgery. The patient was a 73-year-old man. He was diagnosed as lower rectal cancer, and underwent laparoscopic super law anterior rectum resection. On the 13th postoperative day, abdominal pain appeared, suspected ileal necrosis, emergencylaparoscopic examination laparotomywas performed. Upper gastrointestinal perforation was suspected from pus and food on the whole intraperitoneal cavity, and we moved laparotomy...

Lumbar hernias are rare occurrences, with only 300 cases reported in the literature. We present a unique case of a superior lumbar hernia secondary to penetrating trauma to the right flank. We performed a herniorrhaphy using porcine mesh, and provided additional support by mobilizing the external oblique and latissimus dorsi into the defect. At follow up three months after repair, the patient was asymptomatic and exam revealed an intact lumbar abdominal wall with normal contour. Although literature displays a consensus on the need for lumbar hernia repair, specific repair techniques must be tailored to defect etiology, size, location, and contents...

Introduction: Access to surgery in Africa is significantly limited. Treatment outcomes in Africa differ significantly compared to those achieved in Europe or the US. Therefore, to popularise tension-free repair, it is essential to determine the economically justified mesh size for the African population. Aim: To conduct anthropometric evaluation of the inguinal canal in African and European patients to determine its potential consequences for the mesh size for open and laparoscopic hernia repair...

Intestinal stoma creation is one of the most common surgical procedures. The most common long-term complication following stoma creation is parastomal hernia, which according to some authors is practically unavoidable. Statistical differences of its occurrence are mainly due to patient observation time and evaluation criteria. Consequently, primary prevention methods such as placement of prosthetic mesh and newly developed minimally invasive methods of stoma creation are used. It seems that in the light of evidence-based medicine, the best way to treat parastomal hernia is the one that the surgeon undertaking therapy is the most experienced in and is suited to the individuality of each patient, his condition and comorbidities...

Background & Objective: Chronic pain occurs in 20-30% of patients after hernia surgery. As a consequence of this chronic pain, almost one third of patients have limitations in daily activities. Frequency and severity of this pain varies with different techniques of hernia repair. The objective of this study was to compare polypropylene suture and skin staples for securing mesh in uncomplicated ventral hernioplasty in terms of acute and chronic postoperative pain and to compare the time taken for mesh fixation between polypropylene sutures and skin stapler in ventral hernioplasty...

Purpose: The use of prosthetic biomaterials for reconstructing and reinforcing the posterior wall of the inguinal canal reduces the incidence of hernia recurrence. Cost, availability of mesh, and perhaps reluctance to adopt a new technique are factors which prevent widespread practice of hernioplasty in low-resource settings. Use of resterilized mesh significantly reduces the cost of hernioplasty and is safe. Patients and Methods: Sheets of 30 cm × 30 cm polypropylene mesh were cut into 16 cm × 8 cm to produce mesh strips which were repackaged into SELFSEAL® (Medical Action Industries Inc...

AIM: We report two cases of the very rare Primary Acquired Grynfeltt Hernia. The related abdominal wall defects were repaired, by open surgery, placing a partially absorbable plug and mesh. The observation and management of these two new cases prompted us to review the literature with the purpose of suggesting the most appropriate surgical approach and technique. MATHERIAL OF STUDY: A 60 years old female patient showing a swelling at the left lumbar region, and a 76 years old male patient showing evidence of a tumefaction located at the right lumbar region, were diagnosed at our department with Primary Acquired Grynfeltt Hernia...

INTRODUCTION: Patients with umbilical or epigastric hernias benefit from mesh- based repairs, and even more so if a concomitant rectus diastasis (RD) is present. The ideal technique is, however, still under debate. In this study we introduce the minimal invasive linea alba reconstruction (MILAR) with the supraaponeurotic placement of a fully absorbable synthetic mesh. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Midline reconstruction with anterior rectus sheath repair and mesh augmentation by an open approach is a well-known surgical technique for ventral hernia repair...

INTRODUCTION: Morgagni Larray hernia (MLH) is a very rare disease, which accounts for less than 5% of all congenital diaphragmatic hernias. Laparoscopic repair has been widely used and accepted as a treatment option for patients with this disease. The purpose of our study is to analyze the outcomes of patients with MLH who underwent laparoscopic repair, and to evaluate their postoperative course for outcome, morbidity, and mortality. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective chart review was performed of patients who were diagnosed with MLH and treated laparoscopically by 10 board-certified pediatric surgeons...

BACKGROUND: Although inguinal hernia is one of the most common conditions requiring surgical treatment, no reliable information is available on the quality of life of patients with inguinal hernias before surgery. Additionally, patients with intense inguinal pain prior to surgery are more susceptible to postoperative chronic pain. In such cases, less invasive laparoscopic techniques can be used, allowing atraumatic mesh fixation to reduce postoperative pain. The aim of the study was to determine, whether these treatments for patients with preoperative pain would minimize upsetting experiences after surgery...

INTRODUCTION: Abdominal wall integrity may be compromised after abdominal flap harvest for breast reconstruction, leading to bulging or herniation due to weakening of the abdominal wall and dissection through the rectus muscle. Mesh can be used to reinforce the abdominal wall to reduce the risk of hernia formation postoperatively, especially in patients who may be at high risk. In this study, we describe this institution's experience with the use of mesh in the abdominal wall and critically evaluate its impact on patient outcomes and complications...

RATIONALE: Sliding inguinal hernias of the urinary bladder are protrusions of the bladder through the internal inguinal ring, most of which are insignificant and diagnosed intra-operatively. Large inguino-scrotal bladder hernias commonly present with lower urinary tract symptoms and may cause severe complications, including bladder incarceration or necrosis, bladder hemorrhage, obstructive or neurogenic bladder dysfunction, and even renal failure. PATIENT CONCERNS: We describe and discuss the clinical findings and management of a 59-year-old man who complained of a decrease in scrotal size after voiding and 2-stage voiding requiring pressure to the scrotum...

A hernia is defined as a protrusion of an organ or its fascia through a sac of its containing cavity. The presentation of an inflamed appendix inside an incarcerated femoral hernia is termed de Garengeot's hernia. Almost exclusively seen in the female patient, this type of hernia like all others can undergo strangulation leading to complications including appendicitis with or without perforation. Management as described in literature usually comprises open or laparoscopic approach, followed by appendectomy and repair of the femoral hernia with or without mesh...

The incidence of parastomal hernias after a permanent stoma is between 50% and 80% depending on the type of stoma, the definition of the hernia (clinical or radiological), and the length of the follow-up. Surgical therapy is complex and involves several techniques with different recurrence rates. We present three cases where we have closed the hernia gap with continuous, non-resorbable, self-retaining sutures with subsequent use of the sandwich technique ('Sandwich-plus-technique'). There were pronounced parastomal hernias in three female patients (mean age was 72 years and the range was 63-78 years) with permanent colostomata...
