Comparing Pain After Laparoscopic Hernia Repair Using Two Different Types of Mesh Fixation

The primary aim of this study is to evaluate acute and chronic pain following laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair comparing the ProGripTM self- fixating mesh with tack fixation. The ProGripTM laparoscopic self-fixating mesh has been approved for implantation to reinforce the abdominal wall during laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair (TAPP). The mesh ...

Phase N/A

Laparoscopic vs Open Hernia Mesh Repair for Inguinal Hernia

Study population is Waitemata Health (Auckland New Zealand) patients presenting to clinic with unilateral primary inguinal hernia aged less than 60 years, fit for surgery and able to consent for the study. Randomized to open mesh repair or laparoscopic preperitoneal mesh repair. Two surgeons (Dr Rodgers and Dr Hammodat) using ...

Phase N/A

Functional Outcome After Groin Hernia Mesh Repair: Open Versus Laparoscopy

Hernia repair is the most frequent elective operation performed in general surgery. Chronic pain or persistent neuralgia has been recognized as a complication after inguinal hernia repair but was reported in the 1980s as a rare and infrequent condition. Studies from the mid 1990s have reported a higher frequency, with ...


Chronic Pain After Inguinal Hernia Repair the ONSTEP Technique Versus the Laparoscopic Approach

The objective of this study is to evaluate chronic pain after inguinal hernia repair involving mesh placement with the Onstep-technique compared to mesh placement using a laparoscopic approach. The study hypothesis is that an even or smaller proportions of patients operated the Onstep technique will have chronic pain that impairs ...

Phase N/A

A Comparative Study on Trans-umbilical Single-port Laparoscopic Extra-peritoneal Approach Versus Conventional Repair for Inguinal Hernia in Children

Inguinal hernia is a common disease in children. Treatment of this disease by laparoscopic high ligation of the hernia sac has been accepted by domestic and foreign scholars. Since laparoscopic inguinal hernia was introduced in 1990,it has now become the most commonly performed hernia repair in children. The conventional approach ...


Anterior Transversalis Fascia Approach Versus Preperitoneal Space Approach for Inguinal Hernia Repair in Residents

History and current related studies Inguinal hernia is a common surgical disease that manifests as protrusion of abdominal cavity contents through the inguinal canal because of an abdominal wall defect. It is more common in males than in females, with an overall incidence of 5-10%. Methods for surgical repair of ...

Phase N/A

ASA Levels in TEP and Lichtenstein Repair Patients

Antisperm antibody levels are thought to be indirect indicators of spermatic duct injuries. The investigators' ultimate goal is to draw a conclusion about the effect of the type of surgery on spermatic duct integrity. The investigators are going to collect serum samples from inguinal hernia patients before and after surgery. ...

Phase N/A

Use of Biopsies of Abdominal Subcutaneous Fat to Study the Role of the Activation of Endocannabinoid 1 Receptors (CB1R) on Adipocyte Glucolipid Metabolism

Obesity is associated with hyperactivation of the endocannabinoid system, and its inhibition by the administration of CB1 receptor (CB1R) antagonists, leads to a decrease in food intake, weight loss and an improvement in metabolic parameters. Even though the reduction in food intake following central CB1R inactivation seems to be the ...

Phase N/A

Effects of Oral Supplementation of Arginine Zinc and Vitamin C on Collagen Synthesis in Inguinal Hernia Patients

The trial investigates the effect of a pre and postoperative oral supplement consisting of arginine, zinc and vitamin C on collagen type I synthesis in patients undergoing inguinal hernia repair. The patients in the intervention group are given 55 mg zinc, 1251 mg vitamin C, and 15 g arginine once ...
