Comparison Between Desarda and Lichtenstein's Technique for Inguinal Hernia Repair Under Local Anaesthesia

Inguinal hernia is one of the most common treatable surgical conditions. The synthetic prostheses most often used in the inguinal area may in some cases create new clinical problems, such as foreign body sensation in the groin, discomfort, and abdominal wall stiffness, surgical site infections, migration of mesh and may ...

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

Hernia Surgery Urinary Retention

The purpose of this study will be to investigate whether pre-operative treatment with a selective alpha1-adrenoceptor antagonist affects the likelihood of male patients developing post-operative urinary retention following hernia repair surgery. It is also of interest to determine whether or not a well-known urological screening tool, the IPSS, can identify ...


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. ...

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 ...


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 ...
