A Prospective Comparative Randomized Open Label Parallel Group Study to Assess Effectiveness of Mesh Fixation with Polypropylene vs Vicryl in Inguinal Hernia Repair

Dr. Palki Aggarwal | Dr. Samir M. Shah [2]


Abstract: Inguinal hernia repair is one of the most common operations performed in general surgery. Earlier, various approaches were used for hernia repair i.e. shouldice repair, bassini repair, etc but in the recent times, since the introduction of prosthetic materials, Lichtenstein technique has become the gold standard treatment for open inguinal hernia repair. In this study, we have compared the more likely chances of complications in mesh fixation between absorbable and nonabsorbable sutures.
