    Ahmed Mokhtar , Mohamed Abouheba , Sameh Shehata
    Aim: Rectal prolapse in children is a common condition in infancy and early childhood that usually responds to conservative measures.

Results are certainly linked to an appropriate patient selection, work up, technical details and follow-up.

    David S. Edelman
    Aim: Mesh is commonly utilized in the laparoscopic repair of sports hernias. A hybrid mesh was recently released containing a single light weight layer of macroporous, polypropylene mesh between layers of biologic mesh. Having an extensive experience with laparoscopic and sports hernia repairs, a small sample of hybrid mesh was trialed. Methods: From April 2015 to August 2016, 16 male patients with sports hernias were consented for hybrid mesh repair. A prospective data base was developed and patients were followed at 1 week, 4 weeks and 4 months after surgery. Results: Ages ranged from 18...
