Open Umbilical Hernia Repair versus Laparoscopic Hernia Repair

Viswanath Nallapaneni [4]


Abstract: An umbilical Hernia can occur in both men and women. It can occur at any age although it is often present at birth. Umbilical hernias are found in about 20 % of new born, especially premature infants. Umbilical hernias are more common in m ale than in female infants; with regard to race, they are eight times more common in African Americans than in Caucasians (or) Hispanics. In adults the female to male ratio is 3: 1. The repair used depends on the size of the hernia. The repair presents challenge even for the experienced surgeon because of high incidence of morbidity and recurrence. Laparoscopic umbilical hernia repair has grown in popularity since it was first reported in the early 1990s. Low recurrence, fewer complications and shorter hospital stay have led to believe that it sets the new standard for umbilical hernia repair. With the introduction of inert prosthetic material such as PTFE and dual sided meshes the laparoscopic repair of ventral hernias have gained more momentum.
