Event Description
It was reported in a journal article with title: laparoscopic total extraperitoneal repair and open prolene hernia system for inguinal hernia repair have similar outcomes: a retrospective study. The objectives of this study was to compare the results of laparoscopic total extraperitoneal inguinal hernia repair (ltepr) and the open prolene hernia system repair (ophsr), in terms of complications, postoperative pain and quality of life. All consecutive patients who underwent ltepr of an inguinal hernia from 2003 to 2007 and open ophsr inguinal hernia repair from 2008 to 2015, were analyzed. A total of 577 patients were included in the study divided into two groups, the ltepr group 293 patients and in the ophsr group 284 patient. The average age for ophsr was 62. 49 years and for ltepr 55. 35 years. For ltepr to repair the groin, the surgeon use a heavyweight polypropylene mesh 15 x 15 centimeters, divided in a piece of 15 x 5 centimeter inserted under the cord and fixed with helical tackers to the ramus pubis and laterally to the transverse abdominal muscle. The second piece of mesh, 10 x 15 centimeter above the cord overlapping the anterior piece and fixing it to the first mesh inserted. For ophsr the posterior patch of the phs prolene® hernia system (ethicon) was introduced pre-peritoneally and the onlay patch was fixed with continuous polypropylene sutures(ethicon). Reported complications included hematoma (n

6), urinary retention (n
=
9), infection (n
=
1), small bowel obstruction (n
=
1), seroma (n
=
6), hernia recurrence (n
=
12), pain in conclusion ltepr has shorter operative time, more intraoperative complications. Ophsr and ltepr have similar postoperative complications, recurrences, pain, and qol. Inguinal hernia repair by open phs or laparoscopic tep approach has a similar outcome.
