Laparoscopic Vs Open Hernia Repair

“Example of the forces exerted from he inside of a tire; the same happens with the abdominal wall, so the laparoscopic placement of the mesh (meaning, fixated from the inside) takes the advantage of the abdominal wall’s natural forces to keep the defect completely covered and the mesh in place.”

 
     
  • Very small incisions (3)
  • Possibility of using the abdominal wall’s natural forces to anchor the mesh in place.
  • Better visualization of the anatomy of both groin regions, since the possibility of bilateral defects exists.
  • Fast recovery time (one night hospital stay)
  • Minimal postoperative pain
  • Lower morbidity rate
  • Lower hospital stay
  • Return to normal activity and return to work in shorter period of time (complete recovery in 5 to 7 days)
  • Decreased risk of wound infection and hernia formation
  • Minimal scarring
