BACKGROUND: Subxiphoid incisional hernias are notoriously difficult to repair and are prone to recurrence. The few reports on subxiphoid hernia published over the last two decades have not fully addressed the etiology, pathology, treatment, and outcome of this problem. This review was performed to analyze the published experience and increase ...

The differential for a large mass impinging on the left atrium should include a hiatal hernia. When a hiatal hernia is suspected, the patient can be asked to ingest a carbonated beverage. Oftentimes, the beverage and bubbles can help delineate the herniation on echocardiography. This technique can make the diagnosis, ...

Biodegradable suture anchors have facilitated and revolutionized arthroscopic tissue-to-bone repair, especially in the shoulder. However, the anchor is but a part of the repair construct, which also includes a suture, tied in a knot, that attaches the tissue (tendon or labrum) to bone. Bioabsorbable anchors may result in loose bodies. ...
