Seroma after laparoscopic repair

Emmanuel E Sadava, María E Peña, Francisco Schlottmann
INTRODUCTION: Closure of the hernia defect during laparoscopic ventral hernia repair (LVHR) remains controversial. We aimed to analyze whether closing hernia defects impacts in postoperative morbidity and recurrence rates after LVHR. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A consecutive series of patients undergoing LVHR from January 2014 to June 2017 with a minimum follow-up of 6 months were included. The sample was divided into two groups: DC, patients with fascial defect closure and NDC, patients without closure of the defect...

BACKGROUND: Incisional hernias (IH) after orthotopic liver transplant (OLT) are challenging due to their concurrent midline and subcostal defects adjacent to bony prominences in the context of lifelong immunosuppression. To date, no studies evaluated the posterior component separation with transversus abdominis release (TAR) to repair complex IH after OLT. We aim to report the outcomes of TAR in this scenario. STUDY DESIGN: OLT patients who underwent open, elective IH repair with TAR performed at two centers and with a minimum of 1-year follow-up were identified in the Americas Hernia Society Quality Collaborative (AHSQC)...

PURPOSE: Although the modified Sugarbaker technique gives good results for the treatment of parastomal hernia (PH), there are other valid options for the treatment of this frequent complication. In our practice, the laparoscopic keyhole (KH) technique, with some specific modifications, can give similar results. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We collected data on all the patients with symptomatic PHs who underwent surgical repair between January 2002 and December 2017 in our surgical department...

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...

PURPOSE: A residual bulge in the lateral abdominal wall is a reason for patient dissatisfaction after flank hernia repair (FHR). We hypothesized that combining a laparoscopically-placed intraperitoneal mesh (IPOM) with onlay hernia repair performed through a small open incision would increase repair durability and decrease such residual bulges. We aim to report our medium-term outcomes with this technique. METHODS: Patients who have undergone FHR using the technique described above from March 2013 through June 2017 were identified in a prospectively maintained database...

INTRODUCTION: Parastomal hernia (PH) is a common late complication of stoma formation for which laparoscopic repair is a well-accepted modality of treatment. Keyhole repair has been frequently reported with recurrence, but our modification in surgical technique have lesser and acceptable recurrence rates. The present study aimed to assess the results of modified laparoscopic keyhole plus repair in the treatment of symptomatic PH. METHODS: We reviewed our prospectively maintained database to search for patients who had undergone laparoscopic modified keyhole repair between January 2008 and April 2018...

BACKGROUND: Diastasis of the rectus abdominis muscles (DMRA) is frequent and may be associated with abdominal wall hernias. For patients with redudant skin, dermolipectomy and plication of the diastasis is the most commonly used procedure. However, there is a significant group of patients who do not require skin resection or do not want large incisions. AIM: To describe a "new" technique (subcutaneous onlay laparoscopic approach - SCOLA) for the correction of ventral hernias combined with the DMRA plication and to report the initial results of a case series...

INTRODUCTION: Surgical techniques to close defects in laparoscopic incisional hernia repair vary across the literature. We herein demonstrate our original and standardized surgical technique for laparoscopic incisional hernia repair with complete intracorporeal defect closure using barbed suture. MATERIALS AND SURGICAL TECHNIQUE: Complete intracorporeal defect closures were indicated for defects less than or equal to 6 cm in transverse diameter. We performed a defect closure with a running suture using barbed suture in a caudal to cranial direction, with tissue bites and inter-suture spacing of 1 cm each...

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: The decision to perform laparoscopic (L) or open (O) ventral hernia repair (VHR) is multifactorial. This study evaluates the impact of operative approach, BMI and hernia size on outcomes after VHR. STUDY DESIGN: The International Hernia Mesh Registry was queried for VHR (2007-2017). A predictive algorithm was constructed, factoring the impact of BMI, hernia size, age, sex, diabetes, and operative approach on outcomes. RESULTS: Of the 1,906 VHRs, 58...

BACKGROUND: Seroma is the most common early minor complication of inguinal hernia repair. Seromas generally resolve spontaneously within a few weeks, but can sometimes cause other complications. The optimal ways to repair inguinal hernia and handle the hernial sac are still debatable. Large scale, prospective, randomized, controlled studies focusing on the correlation between transection of the hernial sac and seroma formation are scarce. METHODS: A total of 159 adult male patients with primary indirect inguinal hernia who underwent laparoscopic transabdominal preperitoneal repair were recruited...

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...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic ventral hernia repair (LVHR) has gained popularity, since it can decrease the incidence of surgical site complications while providing similar recurrence rates as open repairs. The role of defect closure in LVHR has been a subject of controversy and has not been fully elucidated. We aimed to compare outcomes of LVHR with and without defect closure in a contemporary cohort. METHODS: Single-institution retrospective review of consecutive adults undergoes elective LVHR for 2-8 cm defects...
