GUTIERREZ, Jaime. Open anterior preperitoneal mesh herniorrhaphy in one layer. rev. colomb. cir. [online]. 2007, vol.22, n.2, pp. 109-115. ISSN 2011-7582.
This papers objective is to present an open mesh herniorrhaphy surgical technique by preperitoneal approach and to demonstrate its advantages, such as less postoperative incapacity, lesser pain, low cost, and a very low recurrence rate. A prospective study that included 255 patients with groin hernias operated on during period October 2000-October 2005 was undertaken. The dissection and preperitoneal placement of the mesh provides a grater degree of protection. Fixation of the mesh prevents migration, which is one of the main causes of recurrence. A one-plane mesh is as effective as a three-dimensional mesh.
