BACKGROUND: Ambulatory surgery for incisional hernia repair (IHR) is not a widespread practice and is mainly performed for small incisional hernias. AIM: To assess outpatient IHR practice in France and to identify predictive factors of selection and failure of ambulatory procedures. METHOD: Surgeons of the French "Club Hernie" prospectively gathered data concerning IHR over a period of almost 5years within a nationwide database. RESULTS: A number of patients (1429) were operated on during the period of the study...

BACKGROUND: Long-term patient's satisfaction after groin hernia repair is rarely studied in the literature. The aim of this study was to compare the four main techniques of inguinal hernia repair in terms of patient's satisfaction and quality of life at the 2-year follow-up in a prospective registry. METHODS: From September 2011 to March 2014, consecutive patients underwent groin hernia repair and were prospectively included in the Club Hernie registry, which also consisted of expert surgeons in parietal repair...

BACKGROUND: The etiopathology of multiple sclerosis (MS) is believed to include genetic and environmental factors. Human leukocyte antigen (HLA) alleles, in particular,  are associated with disease susceptibility, whereas Epstein Barr Virus (EBV) infection has long been suspected to play a role in disease pathogenesis. The aim of the present study is to evaluate correlations between HLA alleles and EBV infection in MS. METHODS: HLA alleles, EBV viral load (VL) and serum anti-EBV antibody titers were evaluated in EBV-seropositive MS patients (N = 117) and age- and sex-matched healthy controls (HC; N = 89)...

Human Herpes Simplex Virus type 1 (HSV-1) infection is suggested to play a role in the development of Alzheimer's disease (AD). Immunoglobulin G (IgG) neutralize HSV-1 activity, but the virus can evade IgG-mediated immune responses by expressing receptor that efficiently binds the Fc portion of all IgG subclasses with the exception of IgG3. We analyzed HSV-1-specific IgG subclasses and IgG-mediated serum neutralization activity against HSV-1 in individuals with a diagnosis of either AD or mild cognitive impairment (MCI), comparing the results with those obtained in age-matched healthy controls (HC)...

INTRODUCTION: The aim of the international CORE project was to explore the databases of the existing hernia registries and compare them in content and outcome variables. METHODS: The CORE project was initiated with representatives from all established hernia registries (Danish Hernia Database, Swedish Hernia Registry, Herniamed, EuraHS, Club Hernie, EVEREG, AHSQC) in March 2015 in Berlin. The following categories were used to compare the registries: initiation and funding, data collection and use for certification of hernia centers, patient data and data protection, operative data, registration of complications and follow-up data...

BACKGROUND: To identify the rate of and risk factors for contralateral inguinal hernia (CIH) after unilateral inguinal hernia repair in adult male patients. METHODS: This retrospective cohort study identified from the Taiwan National Health Insurance Research Database (NHIRD). Information on all adult patients who underwent primary unilateral inguinal hernia repair without any other operation was collected using ICD-9 diagnostic and procedure codes. The exclusion criteria were laparoscopic hernia repair, non-primary repair, complicated hernia, other combined procedures, female and undetermined gender...

Fruits of Pinang Yaki (Areca vestiaria) are used by the people around Bogani Nani Wartabone as contraseption for men. Extracts from the fruit contain tannin, triterpenoid, flavonoid and saponin which are potential as bioactive compounds. This research aimed at exploring the fractions or bioactive compounds contained in the fruit. The extract was prepared by fractionation using hexane. The fractions were separated and analysed by gas chromatography mass spectrometry (GC-MS) technique. The fractions revealed the presence of five compounds...

BACKGROUND: Groin hernia repair (GHR) is one of the most frequent surgical interventions practiced worldwide. Outpatient surgery for GHR is known to be safe and effective. AIM: To assess the outpatient practice for GHR in France and identify predictive factors of failure. METHOD: Forty one surgeons of the French "Club Hernie" prospectively gathered data concerning successive GHR over a period of 4 years within a multicenter database...

On Mars, locally warm surface temperatures (~293 K) occur, leading to the possibility of (transient) liquid water on the surface. However, water exposed to the martian atmosphere will boil, and the sediment transport capacity of such unstable water is not well understood. Here, we present laboratory studies of a newly recognized transport mechanism: "levitation" of saturated sediment bodies on a cushion of vapor released by boiling. Sediment transport where this mechanism is active is about nine times greater than without this effect, reducing the amount of water required to transport comparable sediment volumes by nearly an order of magnitude...

BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (SG) has become the most frequently performed bariatric procedure worldwide. De novo reflux might impact patients' quality of life, requiring lifelong proton pump inhibitor medication. It also increases the risk of esophagitis and formation of Barrett's metaplasia. Besides weight regain, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is the most common reason for conversion to Roux-en-Y gastric bypass. METHODS: We performed 24-h pH metries, manometries, gastroscopies, and questionnaires focusing on reflux (GIQLI, RSI) in SG patients with a follow-up of more than 10 years who did not suffer from symptomatic reflux or hiatal hernia preoperatively...

BACKGROUND: Lumbar disc herniation may result in excruciating pain due to it being one of the most common diseases related to changes of intervertebral disc (IVD). In order to find a better clinical treatment and prevention scheme for relieving the pain caused by spine degeneration, the mechanical behavior analysis of IVD must be studied. OBJECTIVE: A finite element method (FEM) is used in this study to analyze the mechanical behaviors of healthy and herniated IVD...

The neural cell adhesion molecule 1 (NCAM1) is a fundamental protein in cell-cell interaction and in cellular developmental processes, and its dysregulation is involved in a number of diseases including multiple sclerosis. Studies in rats suggest that the modulation of NCAM1 expression is regulated by miRNA-572, but no data are available confirming such interaction in the human system. We analyzed whether this is the case using a human oligodendroglial cell line (MO3.13). MO3.13 cells were transfected with miRNA-572 mimic and inhibitor separately; NCAM1 mRNA and protein expression levels were analyzed at different time points after transfection...

BACKGROUND: Colobronchial fistula (CBF) is rare and easy to be delayed in clinic. There is no systemic study about this disease. The pathogenesis, clinical presentations, diagnosis and treatment of CBF were analyzed in this study. METHODS: The clinical data from 37 cases of CBF, which included one case in our institute and the other 36 cases in literature from January 1960 to August 2016, were reviewed and analyzed. The etiology, clinical presentations, diagnostic and therapeutic methods, and outcomes were summarized...

OBJECTIVE: A group of diseases in the scrotum setting forth by the sudden swelling and redness and pain consist of acute scrotal pathologies. The most common causes of acute scrotum in children are epididymitis, epididymo-orchitis, orchitis, testicular torsion, torsion of the appendix testis, incarcerated inguinal hernia and traumatic hydro/hematocele. In this study; we aim to evaulate patients with acute scrotal pathologies who were interned in our department. METHODS: All hospital data of cases who were interned at our deparment due to acute scrotum in between June 2010-June 2014 were evaluated retrospectively...

INTRODUCTION: The increasingly more complex nature of hernia surgery means that training programs for young surgeons must now meet ever more stringent requirements. There is a growing demand for improved structuring and standardization of education and training in hernia surgery. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In 2011, the concept of a Hernia School was developed in Germany and has been gradually implemented ever since. That concept comprises the following series of interrelated, tiered course elements: Hernie kompakt (Hernia compact), Hernie konkret (Hernia concrete), and Hernie complex (Hernia complex)...
