Active Comparator: PROLENE Polypropylene Tacking Mesh
Participants will be randomized to Tacking Mesh for their inguinal hernia surgery.
Device: PROLENE Polypropylene Tacking Mesh
Prolene mesh is a polypropylene plastic mesh (10 x 15 cm) implant fixed with titanium tacks
Active Comparator: ProGrip Self-fixating Mesh
Participants will be randomized to Self-fixing mesh for their inguinal hernia surgery
Device: ProGrip Self-fixating Mesh
ProGrip™ self-fixating mesh is a tack-free fixation mesh for use in open & laparoscopic hernia repairs. It is composed of absorbable Monofilament Polylactic Acid micro grips on one surface integrated with a lightweight Monofilament Polyethylene Terephthalate. The micro grips act as a kind of "Velcro" to the soft tissue surfaces resulting in self-fixation
- Mean Operative Time [ Time Frame: First incision to closure, approximately one hour ]Length of time needed to complete surgery.
- Early Postoperative Complication [ Time Frame: Within 30 days ]Any complication which occurred within 30 days after the operation.
- Pain Score at Baseline [ Time Frame: baseline ]Participants were asked to rate their level of pain on a Likert scale (0 through 5; 0=no pain, 5=severe pain).
- Pain Score at One Week [ Time Frame: One Week ]Participants were asked to rate their level of pain on a Likert scale (0 through 5; 0=no pain, 5=severe pain).
- Pain Score at Four Weeks [ Time Frame: Four Weeks ]Participants were asked to rate their level of pain on a Likert scale (0 through 5; 0=no pain, 5=severe pain).
