Abstract

Background: A hernia is protrusion of a tissue or an organ such as omentum or bowel loops through a
defect in the weakened abdominal wall muscles . Amongst the various types of hernia, inguinal hernia is
the most commonest. The best modality of treating an inguinal hernia is surgery and hence most common
surgery done is inguinal hernia repair . Amongst the various techniques of hernia repair, Lichtenstein’s
tension free meshplasty is the latest, best and has become the gold standard . In 2008, COVIDIEN launched
progrip mesh which is a self fixating mesh used in both inguinal and incisional hernia repair . Progrip mesh
is made up isoelastic lightweight macroporous knitted monofilament polypropylene fabric that incorporates
resorbablepolylactic acid fabric on one side of the mesh to provide self fixation during first few months of
implantation.
Aim: The aim of this study is to compare the outcome on basis of incidence of postoperative pain and
operative time of self fixating pro-grip mesh with conventional mesh in Lichtensteins open inguinal
herniomeshplasty .
Objective:
• Comparing outcome in terms
• Post-operative pain
• Operative time
Conclusion: Lichtenstein’s open inguinal herniomeshplasty using self-fixating Progrip mesh has an
advantage over conventional mesh repair as it requires less operative time and the incidence of postoperative
pain is less frequent and occurs at an even more later period compared to conventional mesh repair which at
times is found to be present even at post-operative day 2.
