Abstract

BACKGROUND Although techniques with prosthetic meshes have improved results of inguinal hernia repair, the problem of recurrence remains. In addition to patient- and surgeon-related causes, protrusion of prosthetic mesh through the hernia defect can be considered as a factor of recurrence.
