AbstractHernia repair is the most commonly performed procedure in general surgery. Even though several techniques have been followed since ages none of them are without complications and recurrence. The objective of the present study is to look for the outcome of inguinal hernia repair with Prolene Hernia System in terms of post operative pain, post operative complications, duration of hospital stay, duration to return to normal activities and recurrence. All cases who presented with uncomplicated inguinal hernia who are more than 18 years were included in the study. Complicated hernias like obstructed and strangulated inguinal hernias presented as emergencies were excluded from the study. The mean VAS score at 72 hours postoperatively was 1.2. The mean duration of hospital stay was 3 days. During the follow up period of 6 months, no recurrence was noticed. The PHS is a tension free mesh repair that provides a complete closure of the myopectineal orifice. It is a feasible procedure with minimal postoperative pain and related complications. It shows acceptable short term results with low incidence of chronic groin pain and reccurence during the follow-up period.
