BackgroundCurrent inguinal hernia operations are generally based on anatomical considerations. Failures of such operations are due to lack of consideration of physiological aspects. Many patients with inguinal hernia are cured as a result of current techniques of operation, though factors that are said to prevent hernia formation are not restored. Therefore, the surgical physiology of inguinal canal needs to be reconsidered.MethodsA retrospective study is describer of 200 patients operated on… 

Concepts that Prevent Inguinal Hernia Formation – Revisited New Concepts of Inguinal Hernia Prevention

Transversalis fascia does not have any role in the prevention of inguinal hernia formation and aponeurotic extension in the posterior wall is the principle factor that prevents the inguinals hernia Formation.

Physiological repair of inguinal hernia: a new technique (study of 860 patients)

This operation is simple to perform, does not require foreign body like a mesh or complicated dissection of the inguinal floor as in Bassini/Shouldice and has shown excellent results with virtually zero recurrence rates.

My experience with a new method of inguinal hernia repair described

The excellent results and the simplicity of this new pure tissue hernia repair technique make this a safe and reliable technique for all groin hernias.

Study of Outcomes of Desarda Repair in Emergency Conditions of Inguinal Hernia

The Desarda approach appears to be a viable alternative to current practices, which is rapid, uncomplicated, and easy to learn and conduct in patients with difficult inguinal hernias.

Inguinal hernia repair with the peduncled fascial flap: a new surgical technique

A new surgical technique is presented in which both crura of the aponeurosis of the external oblique abdominal muscle and transverse fascia were used for complex reconstruction of the entire musculopectineal hiatus, effectively preventing recurrences of inguinal as well as femoral hernias.

Clinical Evaluation of Desarda’s Repair for Inguinal Hernia

Desarda’s technique of biological repair is a logical alternative considering the drawbacks of the use of mesh having shorter operative period, no chronic groin pain, minimal complications with no recurrence, and also being cost-effective.

Scrotal Abdomen : Case of Giant Inguinal Hernia-A Case Report

A case of 52 year old male, with giant inguinal hernia containing almost whole abdomen with terminal ileum, caecum, appendix, ascending and transverse colon with omentum in the hernia sac which was repaired with a novel Desarda technique.

Outcome of Desarda repair in inguinal hernia: a study in northern part of Bangladesh -

This relatively new method of inguinal hernia repair by Desarda method can be widely practiced in this country as evident from the result.

Desarda Inguinal Herniorrhaphy

Results of primary inguinal hernia repair with Desarda’s technique are compatible after the end of one-year of follow-up to other recorded early postoperative complications of Lichtenstein hernioplasty, and modified Bassini and Shouldice herniorrhaphy.

Evaluation of Natural Tissue Reinforcement of Inguinal canal For Inguinal Hernia Repair (Desarda Inguinal Herniorraphy)

Desarda hernia repair was found to be superior to Lichtenstein repair in terms of post-operative pain and foreign body sensation and can be recommended for younger patients.



New method of inguinal hernia repair: A new solution: Reply

This operation is simple to perform, does not require mesh or extensive dissection and has produced excellent results, therefore it is a good alternative to mesh or other open or laparoscopic repairs.

A neuromuscular basis for development of indirect inguinal hernia.

Specialized portions of the transversus abdominus muscles act on the internal inguinal rings and produce a closure mechanism during voluntary abdominal muscular activity that may be an etiologic factor in the development of indirect ingUinal hernia.

New method of inguinal hernia repair: A new solution

A new technique to strengthen the posterior wall of the inguinal canal in all types of inguINAL hernias is described and has been developed because mesh is not easily available in rural or remote parts of many countries.


It is, I submit, by a close study of the anamnesis followed by a careful investigation of the parts implicated in the disease, during the life of the patint, that the surest foundations for accurate diagnostic power be built.
