the Advantages of the Closed Method

The laparoscopic method is also called the Closed Method as the surgery is performed with 3 cuts in skin of total 2cm -1 cut of 1 cm and 2 cuts of each 0.5cm. Though the first hole, a harmless gas (CO2) is given inside and a chamber is obtained here. With the camera and the apparatus, sent though the other holes, the mesh is placed on the location of the scar and fixed at its corners.


The advantages of the Closed Method can be count as follows:

  • It is realized with very tiny cuts. That the cuts are short reduce also the wound complications. Infections, early term post-surgery pains, and in long term chronic skin sensibilities are seen less. That the cuts are short provide also an advantage in cosmetic aspects. After a short time, it gets impossible to find the locations of the cuts.

  • During the Closed Operation both right and left inginual channels can be seen. E.g. if there should be a suspect regarding the second side, it is possible to examine this side also during the surgery. In addition, it is possible to repair both sides with the same holes. At dual side inginual hernias, the laparoscopic method is very advantageous. When the dual side repair is performed by the Open Method, there is more tissue damage and wound complication risk.

  • The return to work, social life and sport after the Closed Method is much faster. The Closed Method offers, including such working in offices, in relation to the difficulty of the profession a serious advantage; it is an ideal method especially for sportsmen and those working with their bodies.

  • It is possible to repair re-incurred hernia, without entering the surgery location from the backside. If the firs surgery was with the Open Method, as the anatomy of the region will be damaged, at such cases the Open Method will contain technical difficulties and has a potential for complications. Therefore, the Closed Method is also successful at re-incurred hernia.

  • The long-term results for the Closed Method are also gathered. At backward studies, both at the initial application and at application regarding re-incurred hernia, it is determined that the Closed Method is as successful as the Open Method. The re-incur ratio are both the same and low. Also regarding other complications, the Closed Method shows more successful results.


Ideal Patient for the Closed Method:

  • Those with dual-side hernia or with suspect of hernia on the other side too.
  • Professional sportsmen, continuously sportive persons.
  • Those who want to turn back to work soon.
  • Those, whose profession needs physical strength.
  • Re-incurred hernias.
