- Introduction: Petersen's hernia (PH) is a potentially fatal complication of bowel infarction that is difficult to treat by laparoscopic reduction. Aim: To define predictive computed tomography (CT) profiles to identify PH patients who would be suitable for laparoscopic reduction by a comparative analysis between patients treated by laparoscopic and open reduction. Material and methods: We retrospectively collected the clinical data of patients (n = 28) who underwent PH reduction surgery after minimally invasive gastrectomy for gastric cancer in the period 2015-2018 at four training hospitals. We examined the preoperative CT scans to identify the indications for laparoscopic PH reduction. Results: We compared the laparoscopic reduction group (laparoscopic group, n = 15) and the open reduction group (open group, n = 13). Patients in the laparoscopic group were younger (55.7 +/- 10.4) than those in the open group (69.3 +/- 9.1), but there were no differences in clinical or laboratory findings. We found that there were two CT profiles with significant differences between the open and laparoscopic groups: superior mesenteric vein (SMV) narrowing and small bowel dilation. We found that small bowel dilatation was an independent factor on multivariate analysis for laparoscopic PH reduction. Conclusions: We found that small bowel dilatation is the most important CT profile for identifying PH patients contraindicated for laparoscopic reduction. Despite the retrospective design of this study, these CT profiles are expected to define the scope of laparoscopic reduction in PH patients and to establish indications for the laparoscopic approach.
