BackgroundThis prospective, clinical, randomized, double-blind study was intended to investigate the impact of the structure and the amount of polypropylene (PP) mesh used in laparoscopic transabdominal preperitoneal hernioplastic (TAPP) on physical function and life quality.Methods180 male patients with primary inguinal hernia undergoing TAPP were randomized for using a heavyweight (108 g/m2), double-filament PP mesh (Prolene, 10 × 15 cm, group A, n = 60), a multifilament, heavyweight variant… CONTINUE READING
