We present the case of a 72-year-old man with a history of anuria from his ileal conduit 15 months following its formation. That conduit had become incarcerated in a right-sided ingunial hernia. The patient presented with anuria and an acute kidney injury. A clincal diagnosis of an incarcerated hernia was made, and he was taken to theatre for reduction and repair of the hernia. On removal of the conduit from the hernial sac, it began to drain immediately. He made a full recovery, with normalisation of his renal function.

We report a rare case of an inguinal hernia containing part of a native kidney and present a review of the literature with regard to urological findings in patients with inguinal hernias. This case in...
Urolithiasis is a common complication in Bricker urinary -diversions. The upper urinary tract and ureters are predominantly involved, and ileal conduit stones are rare. Treatment consists of minimally...
Developments in inguinal hernia surgery have substantially lowered recurrence rates, yet recurrences remain an important outcome parameter of inguinal hernia repair. The aim of this study was to analy...
Despite the frequency with which inguinal hernia repairs (IHR) are performed, the real-world comparative effectiveness of laparoscopic versus open repairs is not well established. We compared the rate...
Many complications may occur after ileal conduit, with the incidence increasing with time after surgery. Nearly half of the complications are related to stoma and ureteroileal anastomosis....
This will be a randomized controlled study which will compare the rate of post-operative urinary retention after laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair between patients who receive an intra-o...

Inguinal hernia repair is one of the most commonly performed general surgery operations. However, to date, the ideal surgical approach for inguinal hernia surgery. The investigators theref...
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.
Temporary or permanent diversion of the flow of urine through the ureter away from the URINARY BLADDER in the presence of a bladder disease or after cystectomy. There is a variety of techniques: direct anastomosis of ureter and bowel, cutaneous ureterostomy, ileal, jejunal or colon conduit, ureterosigmoidostomy, etc. (From Campbell's Urology, 6th ed, p2654)
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.
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.
