Abstract: Background and Aims: Hernias are among the oldest known affliction of humankind. Many procedures have been developed till date to minimize or abolish tissue tension during repair of inguinal hernia. In present study we aimed to evaluate sutureless mesh repair for inguinal hernia.
Material and methods: The present study was conducted on 50 consecutive male patients between 20-50 years of age and having uncomplicated inguinal hernia. Patients were operated upon using sutureless mesh repair technique. During the follow up patients were evaluated in terms of post-operative complications, hospital stay, operative time and recurrence if any.
Results: We found that mean operative time was 39.36 (2.96) minutes and mean total duration of stay in hospital was 1.06 days. There were no complications in the immediate period. At one week postoperatively, seroma formation, wound infection and scrotal swelling were seen in 3 (6%) cases, 2 (4%) cases and 1 (2%) case respectively.
Conclusion: Sutureless tension free mesh repair for the treatment of inguinal hernia cases is an effective technique in terms of decreased time of operative procedure and hospital stay, and decreased postoperative complications.
