Abstract:

Introduction: The aim of our study was to evaluate the results of inguinal hernias treated at ANAIM Hospital in Kamsar. Methodology: This was a seven-month prospective and analytical study of patients admitted and operated on for inguinal hernia, by prosthetic cure according to Lichtenstein or Stoppa and by Raphie. Our variables were epidemiological, clinical, therapeutic and evolutionary. We assessed the overall cost. Results: The mean age of patients was 42.04 ± 16 (extremes 19 and 88 years), the sex ratio equal to 3.66; power workers were the most represented 70.19% (n=73). Seventy-two-point eleven percent (n=75) of patients were classified as Nyus II; 19.23% (n=20) as Nyus III and 8.65% as Nyus IV. The Lichtenstein technique was used in 92.30% of cases (n=96), the simple Raphie 4.80% of cases (n=5) and the Stoppa technique 2.88% of cases (n=3). Mean operative time was 40.6 min (extremes 20 and 120 min). Average hospital stay was 24 h (extremes 1 and 7 days). Testicular pain and recurrence were the postoperative complications observed in 2.8% (n=2) and 1.04% of cases (n=1). Conclusion: Prosthetic management of inguinal hernias provides better postoperative results.
