BACKGROUND Up to one-third of patients with an inguinal hernia have no symptoms from the hernia. [...] Key MethodMETHODS Some 160 men aged 55 years or more with a painless inguinal hernia were randomized to observation or operation between 2001 and 2003. All were invited to attend a research clinic at 6 and 12 months, and 5 years after randomization. Those unable to attend for clinical review were sent a questionnaire based on the clinical review pro forma. Expand
