Desarda Repair for Inguinal Hernia

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT02329938
Recruitment Status : Completed

Brief Summary:
Unlike Lichtenstein tension free repair for inguinal hernia, Desarda's repair was introduced as a pure tissue repair with no need for mesh. In other words; the complications which may arise from the use of a foreign body (mesh) will be avoided. The idea was to evaluate the efficacy of this new repair and compare it to the standard Lichtenstein repair.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: Lichtenstein tension free reair
mesh repair of inguinal hernia
Procedure: Lichtenstein tension free reair
a mesh is apllied on the posterior wall of the inguinal canal and sutured to the inguinal ligament below, to the internal oblique muscle above , and to rectus sheath medially.
Other Name: pure synthetic repair

Active Comparator: Desarda's repair
non-mesh repair of inguinal hernia
Procedure: Desarda's repair
the repair is done using a flap of the external oblique aponeurosis sutured to the inguinal ligament below and to the aponeurotic part of the internal oblique muscle above.
Other Name: pure tissue reapir
