Event Description
It was reported in a journal article with title: efficacy of two kinds of treatment for adult inguinal hernia and the effect on postoperative femoral vein blood flow velocity and pain. The aim of this retrospective study is to observe the effects of progrip self-fixing patch + lichtenstein surgery and uhs patch + tension-free preperitoneal space repair (gilbert surgery) in the treatment of adult inguinal hernias and their influence on postoperative femoral vein blood flow velocity and pain. A total of 149 patients with inguinal hernia who received treatment from january 2018 to january 2020 were included. These patients were divided into lichtenstein patch group (70 cases; 63 male and 7 female) and gilbert patch group (79 cases; 67 male and 12 female) according to different surgical intervention regimens. The lichtenstein patch group was given progrip self-fixing patch + lichtenstein surgery (patch: produced by covidien, usa), and the gilbert patch group was given uhs patch + gilbert surgery (patch: produced by johnson & johnson, usa). Reported complications include hematoma (n
=
8), chronic pain (n
=
4), and incision numbness (n
=
8). In conclusion, progrip self-fixing patch + lichtenstein surgery and uhs patch + gilbert surgery have good therapeutic effects in the treatment of adult inguinal hernias. Compared with uhs patch + gliber surgery, progrip self-fixing patch + lichtenstein surgery has a shorter surgical time, lower incidence rate of postoperative hematomas, but a higher incidence rate of chronic pain.
