Author(s): Dr. Niyaz Ahmed, Dr. Vinay Kumar S and Dr. Vijayalakshmi GN
Abstract: Seventy-five percent of all abdominal wall hernias are found in the groin, making it the most common location for an abdominal wall hernia. Of all groin hernias, 95% are hernias of the inguinal canal, with the remainder being femoral hernia defects. Inguinal hernias are nine times more common in men than in women. Although femoral hernias are found more often in women, the inguinal hernia is still the most common hernia in women. The overall lifetime risk of developing a groin hernia is approximately 27% in males and 3% in females. Over a period of one and half year patients selected with inguinal hernia as per inclusion and exclusion criteria were included in this prospective study Patients were randomly divided into two groups’ i.e. Group 1(Control group): were subjected to Lichtenstein Tension free mesh repair, Group 2(Study group): were subjected to Desarda repair. In the present study 2 patients from both group had seroma collection and 2 patients of LTF group had wound infection one patient of Desarda group had wound infection with Ischemic Orchitis for which re-exploration was done. Rests of the complications were not seen in both groups.
