There remain concerns about the optimal technique for repairing recurrent inguinal hernias because of the high risks of complications and recurrence. The aim of this study was to compare Lichtenstein hernioplasty with the transabdominal preperitoneal (TAPP) laparoscopic technique in the treatment of recurrent inguinal hernias. One hundred twenty-two patients who underwent surgery for recurrent inguinal hernia were prospectively randomized to receive either Lichtenstein (n = 63) or TAPP (n = 59) hernioplasty between January 2010 and December 2014...

BACKGROUND: Seroma formation is the most common postoperative complication after laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair. Recurrence and seroma formation may be difficult to distinguish. Many adjunctive techniques with which to reduce the incidence of seroma formation after laparoscopic inguinal repair have been described in the literature; however, the evidence for using intraoperative adjunctive techniques is limited. Therefore, the present systematic review was performed to evaluate the effects and limitations of adjunctive techniques used during laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair...

Background: Inguinal hernia repair has been a controversial area in surgical practice. Its complexity is reflected by the fact that numerous different procedures including both open and laparoscopic techniques are in use today. Laparoscopic totally extraperitoneal (TEP) repair is preferred over transabdominal pre-peritoneal repair as the peritoneum is not breached and also due to fewer intra-abdominal complications. This is the most elegant technique but rather difficult to perform. Aim: The purpose of this study was to describe Dulucq's technique for inguinal hernia repair and the use of three-dimensional mesh without fixation in laparoscopic TEP inguinal hernioplasty...

Purpose Laparoscopic transperitoneal endoscopic (TAPP) and totally extraperitoneal (TEP) hernia repair have been well established in primary and recurrent inguinal hernias [1]. Only few studies [2-5] evaluate the surgical outcome of patients with inguinal hernias after radical prostatectomy, using the TAPP or TEP procedure. But controversies remain including its feasibility, safety and recurrence rate. The mesh size to be used and the necessity of a complete dissection of the scared retropubic space are discussed controversially...

BACKGROUND: Cholecystectomy and inguinal hernioplasty are the most frequent surgeries in Chile and the world. Laparoscopic inguinal hernioplasty, being a clean surgery, reports mesh infection rates of less than 2% and adding a simultaneous laparoscopic cholecystectomy is controversial due to an increase in the risk of mesh infection. The aim of this paper is to report the results of simultaneous TAPP hernioplasty with laparoscopic cholecystectomy. METHOD: Retrospective analysis of the digestive surgery database...

Purposes: Seroma is a postoperative complication following laparoscopic transabdominal preperitoneal repair (TAPP) for inguinal hernioplasty. Seroma naturally resolves in most cases, but it can lead to an increased amount of visits to the outpatient clinic and can result in anxiety of the patient. Local inflammation of the inguinal area is etiology of seroma formation. Strangulated hernia involves severe inguinal pain and can lead to severe inflammation and subsequent seroma. There have been no reports demonstrating the links of seroma and strangulated hernia...

PURPOSE: In some patients with recurrent inguinal hernias who have undergone previous laparoscopic herniorrhaphy, dissecting the entire posterior wall is difficult due to mesh adhesion. We applied a novel transabdominal preperitoneal (TAPP) hernioplasty technique that involves closing of the hernia defect and implantation of a newly added mesh while preserving the pre-existing mesh for inguinal hernia recurrence after laparoscopic herniorrhaphy. This study was performed to evaluate this novel technique for treatment of recurrent inguinal hernias...

A 50-year-old man underwent laparoscopic hernia repair for a groin hernia, presenting acute abdominal pain and bowel obstruction syndrome 1 day post surgery. Diagnostic laparoscopy was performed at postoperative the day after the hernioplasty and a volvulus was found. The residual end of the barbed V-LOC adopted in the peritoneal closure was incidentally hooked to the mesentery and caused a small bowel obstruction as a volvulus. The redundant V-LOC strand was released and cut superficial to the peritoneum. A detorsion of volvulus was preformed...

In laparoscopic 'paraoesophageal hernia' (POH) repair, non-absorbable suture materials have been used to close the crural defects. More recently, various types of prosthetic mesh have been utilized to repair the defect. We conducted a systematic review with meta-analysis of the recent and up to-date studies incorporating 942 POH repairs. We examined the rates of recurrence, reoperation, and complication rates alongside operative time of these two techniques in the management POH. Randomized controlled trials (RCT) and observational studies comparing mesh hiatal hernioplasty versus Suture cruroplasty for Paraoesophageal hernia were selected by searching Medline, Embase, and Cochrane Central database published between January 1995 and December 2016...

Introduction: There has been a surge of innovative procedures in the field of abdominal wall hernias. Works of pioneers such as Dr. Yuri Novitsky, Dr. Jorge Daes and Dr. Igor Belyansky have started a new era in the field of hernia surgery. Conventional and popular surgeries for ventral hernias are open onlay mesh hernioplasty, open retromuscular mesh hernioplasty (Rives-Stoppa procedure) and laparoscopic intraperitoneal mesh hernioplasty. Evidence seems to suggest that retromuscular mesh hernioplasty has advantages over other procedures regarding recurrence and surgical site occurrences...

INTRODUCTION: An inguinal hernia with an incarcerated appendix is defined as Amyand's hernia, and it is relatively rare. Amyand's hernia complicated with appendicitis, especially perforated appendicitis, is even rarer. Postoperative surgical site infection (SSI) is a dangerous complication, especially in Amyand's hernia with appendix perforation. The selection of an appropriate surgical approach is necessary to prevent postoperative SSI. Here, we report a case of Amyand's hernia complicated with appendix perforation that was successfully managed using a two-stage surgical approach consisting of laparoscopic appendectomy followed by elective inguinal hernioplasty...
