Hernia is a common and frequently occurring disease. The etiology of thought to be caused by transverse fascia thin inguinal region. At present, the main method of inguinal hernia repair is the use of patch repair surgery, patients in the choice of surgical approach will face open surgery and minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery two surgical options. So what is the difference between the two surgical methods, I'll give you a simple explanation and explanation of this question.
First of all, two kinds of operation are required to use the patch, this is common, roughly the same overall effect on the treatment of hernia statistical results. But there is a big difference between the two treatments.
Open surgery is the anterior approach, is a surgical incision, layers of skin and tissue, and find the treatment of hernia sac, used a patch of thin transverse fascia. Stressed that the repair, there are many open surgical approach to the design of a larger area of the coverage of the region, to achieve the purpose of treatment and prevention of hernia, but the actual effect is limited. This kind of operation at present we use local anesthesia for surgery, surgical indications are very broad, especially when the frail elderly patients with chronic diseases.
Laparoscopic resection of posterior surgery, either TAPP or TEP, are entering the preperitoneal patch, using a 10*14CM treatment after hernia sac covering the entire Myopectineal orifice area, replace the thin transverse fascia, is in addition to the treatment of hernia recurrence or relapse prevention more thoroughly. Because the patch is mostly three-dimensional anatomical structure, postoperative comfort is very good, foreign body feeling is very low. In theory, laparoscopic hernia repair can be reduced to 0 recurrence in laparoscopic surgery is also inadequate, is a relatively large hernia after surgery due to the defect of emptiness, easy to form a fluid, but don't worry, the most self absorbed, just the possibility of surgery surgery appears to be large, because the operation is the posterior rectus fascia replacement therapy, do not need to ignore the weak region.
Two methods, one is the repair, a substitute, each have each advantages and features, although are using the patch, but the patch shape or different principle and purpose of use on the implementation of each patient in the choice of operative methods, one is according to their own condition, one is according to what you see the physician of the two operation methods of proficiency, is a two-way choice.
