A comparative study of open preperitoneal versus laparoscopic mesh hernioplasty in cases of incisional hernia repair

Ashish Kharadi, Vikas Makwana, Pranav Patel

Abstract


Background: Incisional hernias repair being done in large numbers there is still not a consensus about the best repair. Very few studies have been done on comparison open and laparoscopic incisional hernia repair.

Methods: A prospective, cross-sectional study was undertaken in Department of Surgery of Civil Hospital. The study included total 50 patients, out of which 25 patients underwent open approach and rest of 25 patients, underwent laparoscopic approach. Patients were assigned to both the groups randomly.

Results: Pain, duration of post-operative stay, and return to routine work is earlier in patients with laparoscopic repair mainly due to decreased pain, fewer complications, early mobility and faster return of bowel movements. Laparoscopic repair is more expensive and operative time is more as compared to open method.

Conclusions: Keeping in view the advantages and limitations of laparoscopic repair, the choice among two surgical modalities should be made on a case to case basis depending on patient preference and characteristics.
