A Comparative Study of Lichtenstein technique with Rutkow–Robbins and Gilbert double layer techniques in inguinal hernia repair
Keywords:Rutkow-Robbins Repair, Gilbert double Repair and Lichtenstein operation.
Background: A hernia is defined as an abnormal protrusion of a viscus or a part of it, through the wall that contains it but without a breach in the body surface. By far the commonest variety of hernia is the protrusion of abdominal wall. Inguinal hernia most probably has been a disease ever since mankind existed. Aim: To compare the Lichtenstein technique with Rutkow–Robbins and Gilbert double layer techniques in inguinal hernia repair. Materials and Methods: This study was conducted to compare, three different techniques of Rutkow-Robbins Repair (Group-A), Gilbert double Repair (Group-B) and Lichtenstein operation (Group-C). Results: In this study, out of total 95 patients, 60 (63.1%) patients were having right indirect inguinal hernia, 30 (31.6%) patients were having left indirect inguinal hernias and 10 (10.5%) patients were having bilateral inguinal hernias. From the above data it is clearly shown that there is much higher incidence of right sided indirect inguinal hernias as compared to the left sided indirect inguinal hernias and bilateral inguinal hernias. Conclusion: Lichtenstein technique is recognized as the most advantageous method in inguinal hernia repairs.
