The aim of this study is to clarify the influence of laparoscopic total extraperitoneal umbilical hernia repair on incision infection, complication rate, and recurrence rate in patients with an umbilical hernia (UH). Sixty-seven UH patients referred to our hospital from June 2017 to June 2019 were selected as the research participants. Thirty-six patients in the research group (RG) were treated with laparoscopic total extraperitoneal umbilical hernia repair, and the other 31 cases in the control group (CG) were treated with traditional umbilical hernia repair. The two cohorts of patients were compared with respect to the curative effect after treatment; intraoperative blood loss, operation time, postoperative pain time, ambulation time, and hospital stay; incidence of complications; pain severity (VAS) before and after operation; sleep quality (PSQI) before and after operation; patient satisfaction after treatment; and recurrence half a year after discharge. The RG presented a higher effective treatment rate ( P  < 0.05), less intraoperative blood loss, operation time, postoperative pain time, ambulation time, and hospital stay, as well as lower incidence of complications than the CG ( P  < 0.05). VAS and PSQI scores differed insignificantly between the two cohorts of patients before treatment ( P  > 0.05) but reduced after treatment, with lower VAS and PSQI scores in the RG than in the CG ( P  < 0.05). The number of people who were highly satisfied, as investigated by the satisfaction survey, was higher in the RG than in the CG, while the recurrence rate of prognosis was lower than that in the CG ( P  < 0.05). Laparoscopic total extraperitoneal umbilical hernia repair is effective for UH patients and can validly reduce the incidence of complications and recurrence rate, which has huge clinical application value.

IntroductionPostoperative urinary retention (POUR) is a common complication after inguinal hernia repair with a reported incidence up to 34%. It can be described as the inability to initiate urination or insufficient bladder emptying following surgery. It usually requires the use of catheterisation to empty the bladder in order to prevent further injury to the bladder or kidneys and to relief from pain. Tamsulosin is a medication that is commonly used in men with urinary symptoms related to an enlarged prostate. There is some evidence to suggest that it may also potentially be beneficial for preventing POUR.Methods and analysisThis is a multicentre, blinded, prospective, phase IV randomised controlled trial with parallel allocation. Six hundred and thirty-four patients scheduled for elective endoscopic inguinal hernia repair surgery will be recruited. There will be effective (concealed) randomisation of the subjects to the intervention/control groups. Group assignment will be performed using a covariate-adaptive allocation procedure to provide a balance for selected covariates. The interventional group receives 0.4 mg tamsulosin hydrochloride and the control-group receives one placebo capsule matching the active study drug, both daily, starting from 5 days prior to the day of surgery, at the day of surgery and for 1 day following surgery. The primary outcome is any need for urinary catheterisation postoperatively as a binary outcome. Secondary outcome measures include postoperative pain, change in International Prostate Symptom Score from baseline prior to surgery to after surgery and hospital stay.Ethics and disseminationThe study has been approved by the Northwestern and Central Switzerland Ethics Committee (2020–00569) and it is being conducted in accordance with the Declaration of Helsinki and Good Clinical Practice. Study results will be disseminated through peer-reviewed journals and national and international scientific conferences.Trial registration numbersSNCTP000003904. NCT04491526.

Abstract Aim Fascial groin anatomy remains a conundrum. In particular, a clear anatomical allocation of the correct extraperitoneal dissection planes and spaces in total extraperitoneal endoscopic hernia surgery (TEP) has not yet agreed upon. The differing anatomical concepts are reflected by the variability of surgical approaches, the considerably long learning curves and subsequent complications. Thus, the aim of this study was to reassess the topographic anatomy of the groin region providing a basis to standardize the surgical steps of TEP according to clearly defined anatomical landmarks. Material and Methods Video analysis of intraoperative surgical anatomy of groin hernia patients was correlated with the findings retrieved by macroscopic anatomical studies. The groin region of formalin fixed body donors was subjected to a stepwise dissection exposing the fascial system of the abdominal wall layer-by-layer and via different angles. Selected areas of interest were processed for histological study. Surgically relevant anatomical landmarks were defined and termed according to the most appropriate anatomical nomenclature. Results The essential surgical dissection steps during TEP could be related to specific anatomical landmarks extending within the extraperitoneal space of the ventral and dorsolateral abdominal wall. The definition of fascial structures and interfaces and the identification of structures at risk allowed the identification of correct dissection planes for mesh placement. Conclusions Our study helps to clarify the definition and nomenclature of anatomical key structures required for a standardized description of TEP in a simplified model. The data may contribute to reduce complications and improve surgical teaching and training.

Aim: The outcome comparison of total extraperitoneal versus mesh repair for inguinal hernia. Study design: Quasi experimental study. Place and duration of study: Department of Surgery, M. Islam Teaching Hospital, Gujranwala from March 2018 to March 2019. Methodology: After the approval of hospital ethical committee, a total of 50 patients were included and randomly divided into two groups equally. Group A (Total extraperitoneal), Group B (Mesh repair). An informed consent was taken from every patient about operative procedure and the outcome. A detailed history of the patient i.e. clinical examination, routine investigations (CBC, Urine R/E, urea, creatinine) and some specific investigations (chest X-ray, ECG and ultrasound abdomen and prostate) was done for surgery. All data of patients was collected on proforma and was analyzed with the help of a computer SPSS programme 20. Results: The mean age of patients was 34.22±11.54 years in group A and 35.63±11.25 years in group B. All male and female patients included in this study in both groups. Twelve (48%) of patients were direct inguinal hernia in group A 13(22%) were in group B and 14(56%) patients were in group A and 11(44%) patients were in group B. The mean±SD postoperative hospital stay was 24.48±4.62 in group A and 34.65±12.26 hours in group B (p 0.001). The mean±SD postoperative recovery time in weeks was 2.18±0.43 in group A and 2.90±0.46 weeks in group B (p 0.001). Only 2 (4%) patient had postoperative infection on first week and 4 (8%) patients had infection respectively. No recurrence was seen in group A and only 3% recurrence was in group B. Conclusion: It is concluded that group A had shorter hospital stay, recovery time, postoperative time and less infection rate as compared to group B. In group A 13% patients had severe pain and in group B 25% patients. Keywords: Inguinal Hernia, Total extraperitoneal, Mesh repair.

Objectives: To compare the post-operative pain after laparoscopic total extraperitoneal mesh repair of indirect inguinal hernia with tacker and without tacker fixation. Materials & Methods: This comparative study was done at Surgical Department of Bahawal Victoria Hospital, Bahawalpur from May 2020 to November 2020 over the period of 6 months. Total 182 patients with indirect inguinal hernia, having age range from 20 to 60 either male or female were selected. In group A patients, laparoscopic TEP mesh repair of inguinal hernia without tacker fixation was done while in group B patients, laparoscopic TEP mesh repair of inguinal hernia with tacker fixation was done. Patients were assessed for post-operative pain and outcome (satisfactory/unsatisfactory) at 1 month follow up. Results: Average of patients was 41.33 ± 12.37 years and 40.83 ± 12.04 years in group A and group B. Out of 182 patients, 170 (93.41%) were males and 12 (6.59%) were females. Mean post-operative pain in Group A was 1.46 ± 1.50 while in Group B was 1.77 ± 2.08 (p-value=0.2505). Satisfactory outcome was noted in 84 (92.31%) patients and 67 (73.63%) patients of group A and B and the difference was significant (P = 0.001). Conclusion: Results of this study showed that there is a significant difference of satisfactory outcome (less post-operative pain) between the non-fixation and fixation group. Difference of satisfactory outcome was also significant between male patients, diabetics and obese patients of both groups. Keywords: Inguinal hernia, laparoscopic, mesh, tacker fixation

Abstract Background: In terms of the need for mesh fixation in total extraperitoneal inguinal hernia repair (TEP), overseas data revealed no significant difference in the recurrence rate between patients with and without fixation. Moreover, there is no information available on this treatment outcome from Japan. We aimed to analyze the outcomes of nonfixation TEP with those of fixation at our institute.Methods: In May 2016, the nonfixation TEP technique was launched. The fixation group (165 patients) was compared to the nonfixation group (195 patients). Bilateral, large, and impaction cases were eliminated from the corrective comparison, and the outcomes for the fixation group (80 patients) and the non-fixation group (111 patients) were compared.Results: One patient in the nonfixation group experienced recurrence. It was a hernia case with a large orifice. In the fixation group, seroma was more prevalent. There was no recurrence and no significance in surgical complications in the correction comparison. The nonfixation group had a shorter operation time and stayed in the hospital for a shorter period after surgery.Conclusions: The nonfixation TEP was deemed adequate, at least for typical hernia cases.

Inguinal hernias (IH) are widespread in the human population and occur in 27–43 % of men and 3–6 % of women. Many risk factors for IH have been overestimated in the last decade: male gender is considered the leading factor (the ratio between men and women is approximately 1:7), less significant factors are heredity (most significant for women), physical activity (more significant for men), age (peak prevalence of IH occurs at 5 years and 70–80 years), congenital or acquired connective tissue dysplasia, history of prostatectomy, low body mass index.Hernioplasty with the use of synthetic mesh prostheses remains the most popular technique for surgical correction of IH. Performing non-prosthetic hernioplasty is only recommended if mesh prostheses are not available, for example in poor countries. In open hernioplasty using mesh prostheses, different methods are used today: Plug & Patch, Prolene Hernia System, Parietene Progrip, sutureless plastic according to Trabucco, Stoppa, preperitoneal techniques TIPP (trans-inguinal pre-peritoneal), TREPP (transrectus pre-peritoneal), TEP (total extraperitoneal), however, none of them showed significant advantages over the gold standard of open hernioplasty – tensionfree repair according to Liechtenstein.Laparoscopic IH correction is represented by the TAPP (transabdominal preperitoneal) technique, performed through the abdominal cavity, and TEP (total extraperitoneal) – extraperitoneal prosthetic hernioplasty. None of them has a significant advantage in the treatment of IH; therefore, when choosing a treatment method, the surgeon should be guided by the cost of the operation and the level of proficiency in one or another hernioplasty technique.
