A retrospective review of both mesh classic inguinal hernia repairs performed under the guidance of a single surgeon showed that Mersilene mesh is safe to use and that the recurrence rate is significantly improved by using the mesh for repair. Mersilene mesh is easier to use than other types of mesh and should be used routinely in the repair of inguinal and femoral hernias.
