Dr. Iraniha inguinal hernia repair without mesh. Inguinal ( groin) hernia is a weakness or defect in the groin region. Inguinal hernia is a very common problem and around 27% of men and 3% of women could develop groin hernia at some point in their lives. Some patients present with a bulge in their groin region with or without pain and discomfort and some patients are asymptomatic. However, inguinal hernia is associated with risk of developing life threatening complications including strangulation of intestine and therefore needs to be surgically repaired when it is diagnosed.
There are two established ways of repairing inguinal hernia with open surgery vs minimally invasive surgery. Minimally invasive surgery, including laparoscopic surgery or robotic surgery has significant advantages compared to open technique. More than 95% of inguinal hernia repair is done with placement of mesh, but there are controversial issues about the use of implant. Open hernia repair without mesh is not very popular in the United States but recently a new laparoscopic procedure called iliopubic tract repair has been introduced for repairing the inguinal hernia in some patients. This video discusses and demonstrates the new laparoscopic technique for repairing the inguinal hernia without using a mesh.
