Author(s): Dr. Kiranraj Ramesh, Dr. SP Ilango and Dr. Alexander Mecheri Antony
Abstract:
Background: Inguinal hernias are one of the commonest problems encountered by the patients, which requires admission and surgery as its treatment. Present Study aimed to compare the surgical outcomes of Desarda repair versus Lichtenstein repair for inguinal hernia.
Methodology: This present prospective comparative study was conducted among the patients above 18yrs of age getting admitted to hospital with diagnosis of uncomplicated inguinal hernia included after obtaining the informed consent.
Result: Total of 50 patients were included in the study and divided into two groups based on type of surgical treated opted for the patients, in each group 25 patients are included. The overall mean age of all the patients included in the study was found to be 50.32±13.67yrs. Duration of the surgery, there was significant lower duration of surgical time in Desarda repair (48.2±7.62mins) compared to Lichtenstein repair (87.4±7.37mins) (p<0.05). The cost of procedure among the DR group was lower than in the LR group (approximately 3000 and 5000 INR respectively). Found a significant higher pain score among the patients of LR group at 6hr (5.2±1.1) and 12hr (2.4±0.8), compared to DR group at 6hr (3.8±0.8) and 12hr (1.6±0.5). (p<0.05) Number of days to resume to work was significantly lower in DR group (11±1.0days) compared to LR group (12.8±1.4days). (p<0.05)
Conclusion: Present study documented a shorter operating time, early discharge and return to work among the patients underwent Desarda repair compared to the Lichtenstein repair. The post operative time and cost of surgery was found to be lower among the Desarda repair.
