Author(s): Dr. RK Mathur, Dr. H Baghel and Dr. Anshuman Pancholi
Abstract:
Method: A Prospective observational study of Laprascopic Repair of Inguinal Hernia by using N-Butyl Cyanoacrylate Glue for mesh fixation without tackers” was an observational study conducted on 50 patients with Inguinal hernia admitted in Department of General Surgery, M.G.M Medical College and M.Y Hospital Indore (M.P.) during the study period from December 2018 to February 2019.
Result: Majority of the cases of inguinal hernia presented were in the age group 39-48 and 49-58 with the same percentage (26% each). Thus, common age group for inguinal hernia is from 39-58 years which accounts for 52% of the cases. The least no. of cases occurred in the age group 79-88 years with 4%. The mean age was 50.6 years with minimum age being 19 years and maximum age being 85 years. The ratio of direct to indirect inguinal hernia is 1:3.
Conclusion: The field of inguinal hernia repair has undergone a paradigm shift over a period. Laparoscopic repair has become a preferred approach for inguinal hernia repair. The latest advancements in the field of prosthetic materials and various means of mesh fixation have brought about significant improvement in the quality of life of the patient who often suffered chronic pain post hernia repair. Majority of inguinal hernias occurred on the right side in the case study which accounted for 52% of the cases.
