1. The biology of hernias and the abdominal wall.
Match Strength: 9.450
The fundamental mechanism for hernia formation is loss of the mechanical integrity of abdominal wall structural tissue that results in the inability to offset and contain intra-abdominal forces during valsalva and loading of the torso. There is evidence that genetic or systemic extracellular matrix disorders may predispose patients to hernia formation. There is also evidence that acute laparotomy wound failure leads to hernia formation and increases the risk of recurrent hernia disease. It may be that hernia formation is a heterogeneous disease, not unlike cancer, where one population of ... Read More »

2. Sciatic hernia with an early-stage adenocarcinoma of the appendix: report of a case.
Match Strength: 7.790
Sciatic hernia and early-stage appendiceal adenocarcinoma are rare disorders. We report herein a case of an early stage of appendiceal adenocarcinoma found incidentally during an operation for sciatic hernia. An 80-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital with abdominal distension. Abdominal computed tomography showed a small bowel obstruction and a small bowel loop through the right sciatic foramen outside the pelvic cavity. During an operation for the repair of the sciatic hernia, a deformed appendix was found incidentally and a simple appendectomy was also performed. Histological ... Read More »

3. Commercial mesh versus Nylon mosquito net for hernia repair. A randomized double-blind study in Burkina Faso.
Match Strength: 7.679
PURPOSE: The goal of this study was to investigate whether locally available Nylon mosquito net might be a useful alternative to expensive commercial mesh implants for hernia repair, a clinical randomized double-blind study was performed. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Over a period of 3 months 35 patients with a total of 40 inguinal hernias were randomized for hernia repair with either a commercial graft (Ultrapro) or a piece of sterilized 100% Nylon mesh available as mosquito net in most African village markets. The surgeons' comfort in handling the meshes, the incidence of complications, and the ... Read More »

4. Biologic prosthesis reduces recurrence after laparoscopic paraesophageal hernia repair: a multicenter, prospective, randomized trial.
Match Strength: 6.944
OBJECTIVE: Laparoscopic paraesophageal hernia repair (LPEHR) is associated with a high recurrence rate. Repair with synthetic mesh lowers recurrence but can cause dysphagia and visceral erosions. This trial was designed to study the value of a biologic prosthesis, small intestinal submucosa (SIS), in LPEHR. METHODS: Patients undergoing LPEHR (n = 108) at 4 institutions were randomized to primary repair -1 degrees (n = 57) or primary repair buttressed with SIS (n = 51) using a standardized technique. The primary outcome measure was evidence of recurrent hernia (> or =2 cm) on UGI, read by a ... Read More »

5. The role of bovine preserved peritoneum in rats ventral hernia: a histological evaluation.
Match Strength: 6.810
PURPOSE: To assess the role of preserved bovine parietal peritoneum as a material for hernia repair in a rat ventral hernia model. METHODS: An abdominal wall defect (15mm x 25mm) was created in Wistar male rats (n=40). Control animals (n=20) had the polypropylene (PP) mesh sutured into the defect, whereas bovine preserved peritoneum (BPP) was used in experimental group (n=20). After 7 and 28 days, the abdominal wall was taken off and histological studies of the amount of collagen by Sirius Red stain and morphometric evaluation consisted in quantitative analysis of the collagen by using ...

6. Traumatic diaphragmatic herniation presenting as a delayed tension faecopneumothorax.
Match Strength: 6.668
This article reports an unusual case of delayed presentation of a tension faecopneumothorax after traumatic injury to the diaphragm 5 years previously. Three important clinical lessons are highlighted: (a) for suspected tension pneumothorax, if a considerable quantity of serous fluid is drained in addition to air, a communication with the peritoneal cavity should be considered; (b) spontaneous tension pneumothorax is an extremely rare condition and other causes should be kept in mind; and (c) in the presence of a tension pneumothorax and diaphragmatic hernia, the contents of the visceral sac ...

7. Esophageal acid exposure in upright and recumbent postures: roles of lower esophageal sphincter, esophageal contractile and transport function, hiatal hernia, age, sex, and body mass.
Match Strength: 6.019
This study aimed to assess, using multiple regression analyses, the roles of lower esophageal sphincter, esophageal contractile and transport function, hiatal hernia, age, sex, and body mass for esophageal acid exposure in upright and recumbent postures and for esophagitis. In 116 patients with reflux symptoms, acid exposure was recorded by 24-hr pH monitoring, motility manometrically, bolus transport scintigraphically, hiatal hernia and esophagitis endoscopically. In upright posture, the percentage time at pH <4 increased significantly with higher body mass index and lower distal ... Read More »

8. Treatment evolution in high-risk congenital diaphragmatic hernia: ten years' experience with diaphragmatic agenesis.
Match Strength: 4.367
OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to evaluate the impact of newer therapies on the highest risk patients with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH), those with agenesis of the diaphragm. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: CDH remains a significant cause of neonatal mortality. Many novel therapeutic interventions have been used in these infants. Those children with large defects or agenesis of the diaphragm have the highest mortality and morbidity. METHODS: Twenty centers from 5 countries collected data prospectively on all liveborn infants with CDH over a 10-year period. The treatment and ... Read More »

9. Chest wall/diaphragmatic complications.
Match Strength: 4.111
This article discusses the prevention and management of chest wall and diaphragmatic complications after extrapleural pneumonectomy, the prevention of thoracoplasty scoliosis, the complications after chest wall resection, and the presentation, prevention, and management of chest wall hernia. Appropriate preoperative assessment and patient selection, meticulous attention to detail intraoperatively, and diligent postoperative observation and care are needed to prevent these events. Publication Types: ... Read More »

10. Anatomic and pathologic findings at external phased-array pelvic MR imaging after surgery for anorectal disease.
Match Strength: 2.738
Pelvic magnetic resonance (MR) imaging is useful for identification of postoperative changes, complications, and disease recurrence in patients who have undergone surgery for primary or recurrent anorectal disease. Commonly used interventions include treatment for anorectal carcinoma: anterior rectal resection with or without creation of different colic anastomoses and abdominoperineal excision with or without pelvic reconstruction (omentoplasty, placement of myocutaneous flaps). Other common interventions include treatment for inflammatory bowel disease (coloproctectomy with or without ... Read More »

11. Abnormal vascular tone in infants and children with lung hypoplasia: Findings from cardiac catheterization and the response to chronic therapy.
Match Strength: 2.413
OBJECTIVE: We describe four cases of chronic pulmonary hypertension in infants and children with chronic lung disease and pulmonary hypoplasia due to severe congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) or congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation (CCAM). We report data from cardiac catheterization under various conditions: baseline respiratory support and room air, hyperoxic and inhaled nitric oxide challenge. We further report cardiac catheterization measures after chronic pulmonary vasodilator therapy with sildenafil alone or a combination of sildenafil and inhaled nitric oxide (three patients). ...
