The addendum contains all current level 1 conclusions, Grade A recommendations and new Grade B recommendations based on new level 1 evidence (with the changes in bold) and all relevant references published until January 1, 2013 were included. Expand
Mortality After Groin Hernia Surgery
Mortality risk following elective hernia repair is low, even at high age, and women have a higher mortality risk than men due to a greater risk for emergency procedure irrespective of hernia anatomy and a greater proportion of femoral hernia. Expand
Emergency Femoral Hernia Repair: A Study Based on a National Register
Femoral hernias are more common in women and lead to a substantial over risk for an emergency operation, and consequently, a higher rate of bowel resection and mortality. Expand
Validation of an Inguinal Pain Questionnaire for assessment of chronic pain after groin hernia repair
The aim of this study was to test the validity and reliability of a specific Inguinal Pain Questionnaire (IPQ) and its application to inguinal hernia repair. Expand
Risk Factors for Long-term Pain After Hernia Surgery
Age below median, a high level of pain before the operation, and occurrence of any postoperative complication were found to significantly and independently predict long-term pain in multivariate logistic analysis when “worst pain last week” was used as outcome variable. Expand
Local, regional, or general anaesthesia in groin hernia repair: multicentre randomised trial
The favourable results obtained with local anaesthesia in specialised hernia centres can be reproduced by general surgeons in routine surgical practice to a great extent, according to this three-arm multicentre randomised trial. Expand
Chronic pain after open mesh and sutured repair of indirect inguinal hernia in young males
The aim of this study was to analyse chronic postherniorrhaphy pain and its social consequences in young males operated on for an indirect inguinal hernia with a Lichtenstein mesh repair, Shouldice or Marcy (annulorrhaphY) repair. Expand
Reoperation After Recurrent Groin Hernia Repair
Recurrent groin hernia still constitutes a significant quantitative problem for the surgical community and this study supports the use of mesh by laparoscopy or anterior tension-free repair for recurrent hernia operations. Expand
