AbstractBackground: To compare open versus laparoscopic repair for abdominal and groin hernias with regard to the following factors: duration of surgery, post-operative pain and analgesia, resumption of oral diet, length of hospital stay, cost and return to normal activity.
Material and methods: The study is obtained from patients who consented to get operated for inguinal and ventral hernias at A.N.M.M.C.H. Gaya. Relevant history, clinical examination and appropriate investigations were done. A total of 81 patients were operated after written consent. 60 patients with inguinal hernias and 60 patients with ventral hernias were used in the study.
Conclusion: Laparoscopic hernia repair holds a promising alternative to the novel repair and the short term results are encouraging. In both cases of ventral and inguinal hernia, laparoscopic repair showed a clear advantage in decreasing the post operative pain, length of hospital stay, reduced duration of analgesia and earlier return to normal activity when compared to open repair.
