Do Inginual Hernias Re-Occur?

“My father had inginual hernia, he was operated 3 times”, “I had an operation on the right side at my childhood, now I have ingibual hernia on my left side”

Inginual hernias can be repaired tension-free with meshes or the location of the tear can be repaired by sewing as it was in former years. The first method, meaning the tension-free repair with meshes is a treatment method which is world-wide commonly accepted and applied. Both in our country and the world, there are surgeons and clinics, which still perform repairs by sewing.

Those, who still perform the repairs still by sewing may think that meshes are not necessary for hernia repairs cause of the fact that the cost of the mesh is high and along with this they bear a risk. It was formerly more frequent met that the same suffer was treated on different ways in medicine, but performed medical studies and as result of the easiness of sharing information, the world is tending towards common right applications.

Repairs with sewing cause injuries of the tissues and create weak regions and even tears for a re-incur. Thus, we could witness that the same person was operated 4-5 times at the same side in former terms, as the repair with sewing was used more often.

On the same way, whilst the repair with sewing had restored one inguen, it caused a risk and hernia at the other inguen due to the created tension. E.g. 6 months after a person had a inginual hernia operation on the right side, there was hernia met on the left side and we could not understand how it could not be detected during the examination for the first operation. However, we recognized very late the harm of the tension caused by the repair by sewing on the first side on the other side.

The hernia re-incur rate decreased with the tension-free mesh method by 10 to 20 times. Therefore, the repair technique with meshes initiated a new era at hernia treatment. All old knowledge, experiences and approaches on this issue were changed. Whilst formerly at 1 of 5 operated patients a re-incur was seen, now the re-incur rate after inginual hernia operations decreased below 1% and are mentioned at per mille levels.

That the tension-free mesh method is now made by the closed method provides the opportunity that the patients can return in shortest time after the operation back to home, work and normal living. Persons, whom we released the same day, are, depending on the load of the performed work, in 2 to 7 days at their works. Professional sportsmen can make sport again within 1 month.

Formerly, whilst hernia operations were accepted as assisting educational cases at universities and educational hospital due to the fact that these were deemed to be the easiest operations, now need, when performed with the closed method, experience both in laparoscopy and hernia surgery. Therefore, it is discussed on international congresses whether hernia surgery should be a separate side branch or not.

That why you met re-incurred inginual hernia cases in the last year less in your environment.
