The Polysoft patch was conceived to facilitate performance of the transinguinal preperitoneal patch method and combine the advantages of patch placement in the preperitoneal space and the open inguinal approach. The aim of this prospective study was to evaluate the rate of recurrence and chronic pain at midterm follow-up. In a cohort of 200 hernia repairs(More)
The Polysoft® patch was conceived to associate the advantages of placement of the patch in the preperitoneal space (PPS) and easiness of the inguinal incision. The aim of this study was to evaluate prospectively the feasibility and postoperative outcome of this method. Two hundred Polysoft repairs were performed in 191 consecutive patients with Nyhus types(More)
There are many hernia repair techniques. Among the most popular, the Shouldice Hospital method was the most widely used in the 1980s. Since then, methods employing prosthetic mesh have taken over, mainly because they are tension-free and therefore seem to lead to less recurrence and cause less postoperative pain. There are several ways of placing the(More)
OBJECTIVE Ambulatory surgery is not commonly practiced in France today. The aim of this study was to prospectively evaluate the feasibility of ambulatory hernia repair in a consecutive series of unselected patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS From June 2008 to October 2009, 257 patients (238 men and 19 women, median age 65 years) were treated in a same-day(More)
Comparing the modified Lichtenstein technique with the ProGrip patch, to the TIPP technique with the Polysoft patch, is interesting, since both methods are aimed at improving the patient’s comfort [1]. According to the results there is no difference concerning chronic pain between both techniques. Nevertheless, despite the randomized setting, the results of(More)
A case–control study was performed to compare laparoscopic ventral hernia repair (LVHR) using the Ventralight ST™ lightweight surgical mesh with LVHR using other types of mesh. Adult patients undergoing intraperitoneal implantation of Ventralight ST™ during LVHR (Ventralight ST™ group; VG) over a 2-year period (2011–2013) were identified from the(More)
