    Two patients with unilateral transverse testicular ectopia (TTE) without the persistence of Mullerian duct structures are described. Each presented with unilateral impalpable testis and a contralateral inguinal hernia. The diagnosis of unilateral TTE was made during laparoscopic evaluation for undescended testis. The first patient had unilateral TTE on the right side and the second on the left. In both patients, a long thin band resembling the round ligament of the uterus was seen extending from the region of the internal inguinal ring (IIR) on the side of the undescended testis to the opposite inguinal canal. In both patients, there was no patent processus vaginalis on the side of the undescended testis and on the contralateral side the internal rings were widely patent with large hernial sacs. In the second patient, the right vas was seen extending from the right IIR towards the right side of the pelvis. The right vas showed a short segment of discontinuity at the level of the right IIR while its proximal end extended into the left inguinal canal in close relation to the right spermatic vessels. The vasal anomaly was probably ischemic in origin, resulting from excessive mobility of the ectopic testis and its vas in TTE. Correlation of the current hypotheses on the embryology of TTE with the above mentioned laparoscopic findings is discussed.

    An inguinal hernia that suddenly becomes irreducible may be secondary to a variety of other underlying conditions which can occasionally mislead the attending surgeon. Benign, inflammatory or neoplastic processes, as well as surgical emergencies such as intraperitoneal or retroperitoneal haemorrhage, have all been previously reported to mimic an inguinal hernia that suddenly becomes irreducible with or without clinical features of strangulation. We add an additional interesting presentation to this list in the form of a ruptured ectopic pregnancy, which is the first such case reported in the literature. A swelling in the groin may be much more complicated than it seems on superficial consideration and good clinical acumen is constantly required in managing such cases if a satisfactory outcome without any morbidity is to be expected.

    Inguinal hernia remains the most commonly encountered surgical problem. Various methods of repair have been described, and the most suitable one debated. Single port access (SPA) surgery is a rapidly evolving field, and has the advantage of affording 'scarless' surgery. Single incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS) for inguinal hernia repair is seen to be feasible in both total extraperitoneal (TEP) and transabdominal pre-peritoneal (TAPP) approaches. Data and peri-operative information on both of these however are limited. We aimed to review the clinical experience, feasibility and short term complications related to laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair via single port access. A literature search was performed using Google Scholar, Springerlink Library, Highwire Press, Surgical Endoscopy Journal, World Journal of Surgery and Medscape. The following search terms were used: laparoscopic hernia repair, TAPP, TEP, single incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS). Fourteen articles in English language related to SILS inguinal hernia repair were identified. Nine articles were related to TEP repair and the remaining 5 to TAPP. A total of 340 patients were reported within these studies: 294 patients having a TEP repair and 46 a TAPP. Only two cases of recurrence were reported. Various ports have been utilized, including the SILS port, Tri-Port and a custom- made port using conventional laparoscopic instruments. The duration of surgery was 40-100 minutes and the average length of hospital stay was one day. Early outcomes of this novel technique show it to be feasible, safe and with potentially better cosmetic outcome.

    Using laparoscopic methods for incarcerated scrotal hernias is controversial because of the perceived technical difficulties in treating such hernias. Herein, we present our experience with laparoscopic repair of such hernias.

    Ventriculoperitoneal shunts are associated with multiple complications. Among them are disconnection and migration of the tubing into the peritoneal cavity. Here we describe a case of a fractured ventriculoperitoneal shunt which migrated and coiled in the scrotum, masquerading as a scrotal swelling. Removal of the shunt via a scrotal incision was performed concomitantly with repair of the hernia sac.

    A 4-month-old healthy male infant underwent left herniotomy under general anesthesia with caudal block. Carbon dioxide (CO2) pneumoperitoneum was created through the left hernial sac for inspection of the right processus vaginalis. Episodes of desaturation associated with significant reduction in chest compliance were noted intraoperatively. This was overcome by increasing the inspired oxygen concentration (FiO2). The infant failed to regain consciousness and spontaneous respiration at the end of surgery. The chest compliance deteriorated further and clinically a CO2 pneumothorax (capnothorax) was suspected. The endtidal carbon dioxide (P(E)CO2) was initially low in the immediate postoperative period. Subsequent to the readministration of sevoflurane and manual ventilation with a Jackson Rees circuit, a sudden surge in P(E)CO2 with improvement of chest compliance was observed. At that time arterial blood gas (ABG) analysis revealed a PCO2 of 17.5 kPa (134 mmHg) and pH of 6.9. The causes of severe hypercarbia and the physiological changes observed in this infant are discussed.

    BACKGROUND: The laryngeal mask airway (LMAⓇ) ProtectorTM (Teleflex Medical Co., Ireland) is the latest innovation in the second generation of LMA devices. One distinguishing feature of this device is its integrated, color-coded cuff pressure indicator (Cuff PilotTM technology) which enables continuous cuff pressure monitoring and allows adjustments when necessary; this ensures patient safety due to better monitoring.

    CASE: We report a case of postoperative unilateral hypoglossal nerve palsy after uncomplicated use of the LMA Protector. To the best of our knowledge, this could be the second reported case.

    CONCLUSIONS: This case demonstrates that anesthetists need to routinely measure cuff pressure and that the Cuff PilotTM technology is not a panacea for potential cranial nerve injury after airway manipulation.

    Antibiotic prophylaxis for inguinal hernioplasty is still practiced in many hospitals to prevent consequences of infected mesh, mesh removal and hernia recurrence. The common route of administration is intravenous. However this method can be associated with systemic side effects. Alternatively, locally applied antibiotics have been used and proven to significantly reduce the infection rate after inguinal hernioplasty.

    PURPOSE: Laparoscopic hernioplasty has become a popular choice for inguinal hernia repair since its advent in 1990s. Postoperative pain is an undesirable clinical outcome impairing daily activity of 22.5% of patients. The aim of this study is to evaluate postoperative acute and chronic pain via inflammatory markers as an objective assessment following tacks or glue mesh fixation in TEP repair.

    METHODS: Sixty-six (66) patients with unilateral uncomplicated inguinal hernia were randomized into 34 patients in the tacker and 32 patients in cyanoacrylate glue mesh fixation in TEP repair. The extent of surgical trauma was evaluated by measuring inflammatory markers of C-reactive protein, white blood cell count at 48 h, and ESR at 3 months postoperatively. Postoperative acute and chronic pain was assessed by recording the visual analogue scale scores and surgical complications were recorded over 3 months of the study period.

    RESULTS: The median CRP and WBC levels at postoperative 48 h in both groups raised significantly from the baseline values (p  0.05). The median ESR level increased significantly at 3 months postoperatively from baseline in the glue mesh fixation group only (p  0.05). There was no significant difference for VAS scores at all timelines between the tacker and glue mesh fixation group (p > 0.05).

    CONCLUSION: Cyanoacrylate glue mesh fixation technique as an alternative method to mechanical fixation in TEP repair is comparable to tacker and can be considered to be safe and feasible.
