Abstract: Objective To explore the feasibility and safety of single-port laparoscopic surgery in the treatment of incarcerated inguinal hernia in children. Methods The clinical efficacy of single-port laparoscopic and epidural anesthesia needle treatment for incarcerated inguinal hernia in children of 32 cases were analyzed retrospectively. Results Thirty-two children were operated successfully. The operation time was (16.24 ± 4.67) min for unilateral hernia (in 25 cases) and (21.69 ± 5.85) min for bilateral hernia (in 7 cases). The blood loss was (2.50 ± 0.56) ml. The recovery time of intestinal peristalsis was (16.42 ± 4.86) h after surgery, and the postoperative hospital stay was (3.25 ± 0.82) d. Intraoperative exploration found 7 cases had concealed contralateral hernia;incarcerated hernia contents included bowel in 27 cases, ovaries in 3 cases, and greater omentum in 2 cases. All the incarcerations were successfully restored by hand and no-damage clamp assistance. The incarcerated organ had good blood flow in all the 32 cases. The follow-up time was (15.62 ± 5.34) months, and there was no recurrence and atrophy of testis or ovaries. Conclusions The single-port laparoscopic surgery for incarcerated inguinal hernia in children has advantages of preservation of anatomy of the inguinal canal easily to perform high ligation of hernial sac, and reduction under direct visual control. Meanwhile, occult inguinal hernia in the opposite side can be cured. It was a safe, effective, and minimally invasive procedure, being worthy of further clinical application.
