This study aimed to evaluate the acute pain, chronic pain, and recurrence rate between these two fixation methods.MethodsAfter reviewing all patients in our prospective hernia repair database from February 2008 to December 2017, we identified 583 patients who underwent TEP with tack mesh fixation and 70 patients with glue fixation by a single surgeon. Acute post-operative pain and activity level were evaluated using a Visual Analog Score (VAS) and the modified Medical Outcome Study (MOS) score. The primary endpoint was chronic pain 6 months after TEP. The secondary endpoints were acute pain, activity level, complications, ...
Discussions during the initial consultation and on the day of surgery were assessed by reviewing clinic letters, medical notes and consent forms. FINDINGS: The risk of chronic pain was discussed with significantly more patients in 2019 than in 2009 (96% v 54%, p
ConclusionsThe rate of litigation for clinical negligence in inguinal hernia surgery in the UK is increasing. Whilst there has been a recent increase in laparoscopic hernia repair claims, the volume and burden of claims related to open procedures remain greater.
Multiple studies have analyzed predictors for chronic pain after open hernia repair. The purpose of this study is to determine which factors predict the development of chronic pain after a laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair.

Conclusions. In the treatment of direct inguinal hernia with R-TAPP, suturing and anchoring the transversalis fascia to the Cooper ligament are safe, feasible and recommendable in order to prevent postoperative seromas. PMID: 32936065 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
AbstractPurposeThe aim of the study was to compare proportions of chronic postoperative inguinal pain (CPIP) and other surgical outcomes between transinguinal preperitoneal repair with modified Kugel patch (MK) and Lichtenstein repair (LR).MethodsTwo-hundred adult male patients with primary unilateral inguinal hernia were randomized into MK or LR groups. The primary endpoint was CPIP, pain at 6 months after surgery. Secondary outcomes included recurrence rate, incidence of postoperative complications, time until return to activities, inguinal pain and sensory disturbances assessed at 1 week, 1 month, 3, 6, ...
Abstract Umbilical hernia repair (UHR) is one of the most commonly performed hernia operations with reported recurrence rate from 1% to 54%. Our aim was to describe an open, laparoscopic-assisted (OLA) technique and its outcome in an institutional review board-approved prospective study at a tertiary hernia center from 2008 to 2019. All patients underwent a standard periumbilical incision, open dissection of the hernia, and closure of the fascial defect with laparoscopic intraperitoneal onlay mesh (IPOM) fixation with permanent tacks. A total of 186 patients were identified who underwent an OLA UHR repair. Patient...
Conclusion: Laparoscopic TAPP inguinal hernia repair using P4HB mesh is safe for combined, direct (medial), and indirect (lateral) inguinal hernia, with no recurrence. P4HB absorbable mesh caused less chronic pain and discomfort. Longer follow-up, more patients and 15 patients repaired using synthetic mesh are necessary to assess the utility of P4HB for inguinal hernia repair globally. PMID: 32831545 [PubMed - in process]
