Event Description

Title: postoperative outcomes and patients¿ satisfaction after hybrid tipp with uhs and tep repair for inguinal hernias: a single-centre retrospective comparative study. This single-center, retrospective comparative study aims to compare the outcomes and satisfaction of hybrid transabdominal preperitoneal (htipp) procedure using ultrapro hernia system (ethicon). From 2013-2017, 90 patients had either htipp (n=46) or totally extraperitoneal (tep) (n=44) inguinal hernia repairs. During the hybrid transabdominal preperitoneal (htipp) procedure, the underlay part of the mesh of ultrapro hernia system (ethicon) was folded then inserted into preperitoneal space through the internal ring. Surgical manipulation was used for proper deployment of the underlay part of the mesh and for confirming the proper expansion and the entire covering of the myopectineal orifice (mpo). The onlay part of the mesh was used to cover and reinforce the floor of the inguinal canal. The onlay mesh was modified to accommodate the cord structure and was fixed with interrupted absorbable sutures with the longer side of the onlay being positioned parallel to the inguinal ligament. Immediate postoperative complications included postoperative pain (vas score within 24 hours) of 3 (range of 1-7) (n=unknown), urine retention (n=2) requiring urinary catheter insertion, bronchospasm (n=1) and severe postoperative pain requiring admission for pca (n=1). During the early period, testicular pain on the ipsilateral side of the surgery (n=2), pain on the surgery site demanding analgesia for longer duration (n=2) and subcutaneous wound seroma (n=1) were reported. The late complication for htipp patients is mainly inguinal discomfort/pain (n=3) that did not require long term treatment and without significant impact on daily activities. Based on the outcome of the study¿s questionnaire applied from the follow-up of 6-56 months, patients had a lot of pain/discomfort (n=3), some discomfort (n=7), problems walking (a lot of problems n=1 and some problems n=1), have some problems looking after myself (n=3), problems doing daily activities (a lot of problems n=1 and some problems n=5) and feeling worried (very worried n=1 and bit worried n=1). There is no significant difference between htipp and tep in terms of postoperative outcomes and patient satisfaction. Htipp approach is a safe and feasible alternative to tep.
