Methods of intraperitoneal placement of mesh in laparoscopic surgery of inguinal hernias (IPOM--Intraperitoneal Onlay Mesh)

, : Methods of intraperitoneal placement of mesh in laparoscopic surgery of inguinal hernias (IPOM--Intraperitoneal Onlay Mesh). Rozhledy V Chirurgii 80(1): 30-34

Intraperitoneal onlay mesh is a new method of laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair shortening an operative time and reducing its cost, which is very safe and less burdening a patient. 325 males and 37 females at the mean age of 47.3 years were operated on electively for symptomatic inguinal hernia by IPOM method. In all cases we used a polyester mesh impregnated with silicone. The mean operative time was 18 minutes for unilateral procedure and 28 minutes for bilateral one. There was no serious complication during the operation even the post-operative time and no recurrency following this type of the operation. IPOM hernioplasty can be a method of choice in the inguinal hernia repair because of this procedure is very simple, cheap and safe for a patient. We have to wait for a long-term results to validate the hitherto existing ones, even if they are very optimistic.
