Lower incidence of inguinal hernia after radical prostatectomy using open gasless endoscopic single-site surgery.
Summary of "Lower incidence of inguinal hernia after radical prostatectomy using open gasless endoscopic single-site surgery."
Inguinal hernia is one of the long-term complications requiring surgical interventions after retropubic radical prostatectomy (RRP), and its incidence has been reported to range from 12 to 21%. The number of open gasless laparoendoscopic single-site surgery, especially minimum incision endoscopic radical prostatectomy (MIES-RRP) is increasing in Japan. The incidence of post-operative inguinal hernia was compared between conventional RRP and MIES-RRP. The medical records of 333 patients who underwent conventional RRP (n=214) or MIES-RRP (n=119) with pelvic lymphadenectomy at our hospital were retrospectively evaluated. There were no significant differences between the two groups in age, pre-operative PSA levels, or previous major abdominal surgery (cholecystectomy, gastrectomy and colectomy), appendectomy or inguinal hernia repair. MIES-RRP was carried out with a 5-8-cm lower abdominal midline incision. Inguinal hernia developed postoperatively in 41 (19%) of the 214 men undergoing conventional RRP during mean follow-up of 58 months (range: 7-60 months). In contrast, 7 (5.9%) of the 119 men receiving MIES-RRP, developed inguinal hernia during mean follow-up of 21 months (range: 13-31 months). The hernia-free survival was significantly higher after MIES-RRP than after conventional RRP (P=0.037). Our results suggest that MIES-RRP is less associated with post-operative inguinal hernia than conventional RRP.Prostate Cancer and Prostatic Diseases advance online publication, 15 February 2011; doi:10.1038/pcan.2011.1.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
An abdominal hernia with an external bulge in the GROIN region. It can be classified by the location of herniation. Indirect inguinal hernias occur through the internal inguinal ring. Direct inguinal hernias occur through defects in the ABDOMINAL WALL (transversalis fascia) in Hesselbach's triangle. The former type is commonly seen in children and young adults; the latter in adults.
A protrusion of abdominal structures through the retaining ABDOMINAL WALL. It involves two parts: an opening in the abdominal wall, and a hernia sac consisting of PERITONEUM and abdominal contents. Abdominal hernias include groin hernia (HERNIA, FEMORAL; HERNIA, INGUINAL) and VENTRAL HERNIA.
A groin hernia occurring inferior to the inguinal ligament and medial to the FEMORAL VEIN and FEMORAL ARTERY. The femoral hernia sac has a small neck but may enlarge considerably when it enters the subcutaneous tissue of the thigh. It is caused by defects in the ABDOMINAL WALL.
The tunnel in the lower anterior ABDOMINAL WALL through which the SPERMATIC CORD, in the male; ROUND LIGAMENT, in the female; nerves; and vessels pass. Its internal end is at the deep inguinal ring and its external end is at the superficial inguinal ring.
A pelvic hernia through the obturator foramen, a large aperture in the hip bone normally covered by a membrane. Obturator hernia can lead to intestinal incarceration and INTESTINAL OBSTRUCTION.
PURPOSE: After radical retropubic prostatectomy a postoperative inguinal hernia develops in 15% to 20% of patients. We investigated whether a simple prophylactic procedure during radical retropubic pr...
OBJECTIVES: To establish a novel and simple method of preventing post-retropubic prostatectomy (RRP) inguinal hernia. Inguinal hernias occur in 8%-22% of men within 1-2 years of RRP. Although manipula...
Abstract Objective. To identify risk factors for hernia repair following open retropubic, pure laparoscopic and robot-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy. Material and methods. The medical rec...
In this paper, we present a rare case of a small bowel obstruction secondary to an incarcerated inguinal hernia as a short-term complication of a penile prosthesis implantation. The patient underwent...
BACKGROUND: Robotic prostatectomy (RP) is now increasingly performed because it allows for precise dissection of neurovascular structures with better outcomes. It is estimated that 5-12% of candidates...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair leads to a lower incidence of chronic pain compared to open herniorrhaphy.
The purpose of this study is to assess the early outcomes when using the Biomerix Revive™ as a tension-free onlay patch, Lichtenstein-style, in patients who are candidates for primary, u...
Chronic inguinal neuralgia is one of the most important complications following inguinal hernia repair. It may even outweigh the benefit of the operation. Intraoperative neurectomy has be...
The aim of this study was to analyze the shrinkage of two different screens in the repair of inguinal hernias in men . 32 patients with unilateral inguinal hernia were assigned randomly....
The aim of this study is to compare laparoscopic total extraperitoneal and open mesh repair of inguinal hernia, with regard to hospital stay, postoperative pain, quality of life, postopera...
