BACKGROUND Postherniorrhaphy chronic pain may be related to the trauma to the regional nerves or prosthetic mesh. This study was aimed to search the objective findings of prosthetic mesh placement on the ilioinguinal nerve in three different nerve treatment patterns with two different mesh types. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty New Zealand rabbits were used.(More)
BACKGROUND Chronic pain after mesh repair for inguinal hernia may be related to the trauma to the regional nerves by direct compression with sutures, staples, or tacks during mesh fixation. Fibrin sealant (FS) has been recommended to eliminate this risk. In this experimental study, the effects of FS on the ilioinguinal nerve when a mesh was applied was(More)
Echinococcosis is a zoonotic infection in which the liver is the organ most frequently involved, followed by the lung and sometimes the heart, spleen, kidney and brain [1]. Hydatid cyst can be seen in almost every part of the human body [2–5]. Despite the common involvement of the liver in terms of location, only 2 cases of isolated hydatid cyst of the(More)
Rectus sheath hematoma may present as a painful mass in the anterior abdominal wall. The underlying reasons may vary, while anticoagulant use and thromboembolism prophylaxis are documented causes. Treatment is mostly conservative however interventional procedures can be required. We herein present a case of 76-year-old patient with an uncontrolled rectus(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM Umbilical hernia frequently accompanies cholelithiasis. It is possible to repair these hernias after completing cholecystectomy. We herein describe a simple modified technique for the repair. PATIENTS AND METHOD The technique was applied to 10 patients undergone laparoscopic cholecystectomy. After cholecystectomy has been performed,(More)
Pseudomyxoma peritonei is a rare but challenging neoplastic disease which is characterized with intraperitoneal mucinous-gelatinous fluid accumulation. It rarely presents as a mass mimicking abdominal wall hernias A recurrent incisional hernia due to pseudomyxoma peritonei is presented here. A 60-year-old female patient had been operated on for a left(More)
We present a case of immediate abdominal wall reconstruction with biologic mesh following the resection of locally advanced colonic cancer. The tumor in the right colon did not respond to neoadjuvant chemotherapy. Surgical enbloc excision, including excision of the invasion in the abdominal wall, was achieved, and the defect was reconstructed with porcine(More)
