Laparoscopic prosthetic parastomal and perineal hernias repair after abdominoperineal resection
Background: In this video, the authors report the case of a 74-year-old woman who consulted for episodes of intestinal occlusions following an abdomino-perineal resection for rectal adenocarcinoma (pT2N0M0), performed 6 years earlier. Abdomino-pelvic CT-scan showed a parastomal hernia with migrated small bowel loops and a perineal hernia with transposition of the caecum and bowel loops into the pelvis. Preoperative work-up was negative for tumor recurrence, hence a laparoscopic treatment using a double dual face prosthesis was proposed.

Video: Three trocars were placed into the abdomen. After adhesiolysis and removal of the viscera herniated into the hernia, the parastomal defect was exposed and measured intracorporeally 6cm (cranio-caudally) and 4cm (latero-laterally). An intracorporeal suture was used to close the defect, and a dual face prosthesis of 15cm in length and 10cm in width (Surgimesh XB, Aspide Medical, Saint-Etienne, France) was fixed by means of absorbable tacks (Sorbafix, Bard Davol Inc., Warwick, RI, US), according to the Sugarbaker technique. Successively, the pelvis was freed from adhesions, and the superior pelvic opening appeared to be 8cm (antero-posteriorly) and 7cm (latero-laterally). A dual face circular prosthesis of 10cm (Surgimesh XB, Aspide Medical) was fixed using two running sutures around the superior pelvic opening.

Results: Operative time was 72 minutes for parastomal hernia and 95 minutes for perineal hernia. Operative bleeding was unsignificant. The patient was discharged after 3 days, and at visit consultations, she did not present with any recurrence.

Conclusion: Prosthetic parastomal and perineal hernias repair can be performed simultaneously using laparoscopy with the same port positioning, adding the advantages of minimally invasive surgery and avoiding a large laparotomy.

Transumbilical single-access laparoscopic subxiphoidal incisional hernia repair
Background: In this video, the authors report the case of a 65-year-old man who consulted for a subxiphoidal incisional hernia after open cardiac surgery. A transumbilical single access laparoscopic repair was proposed.

Video: The umbilical scar was incised and, after having placed a fascial umbilical purse-string suture, an 11mm reusable trocar was introduced. DAPRI curved reusable instruments (Karl Storz Endoskope, Tuttlingen, Germany) were introduced. The subxiphoidal hernia was put in evidence. The fatty tissue covering the defect was freed and the hernia defect was measured to be 8cm cranio-caudally and 6cm latero-laterally. A dual face mesh of 15 and 14cm (Surgimesh XB, Aspide Medical, Saint-Etienne, France) was chosen and introduced into the cavity through the 11mm trocar. The mesh was fixed against the abdominal wall using absorbable tacks (Sorbafix, Bard Davol Inc., Warwick, RI, US), and against the pericardial sheet using a polypropylene suture, in order to prevent any potential cardiac tamponade.

Results: The final umbilical scar was 15mm. Operative time was 65 minutes, and operative bleeding was insignificant. The patient was discharged on postoperative day 1. At visit consultations, no recurrence was evidenced.

Conclusion: Subxiphoidal incisional hernia after open cardiac surgery can be treated successfully using a transumbilical single access laparoscopy.
