Inguinal hernia repair
Groin hernia surgery is the third most common operation in the Western world and this comprehensive work offers a great deal of well-organized and practical information on the subject. The contributions are written by experts of international standing, and are enriched by group discussions of salient points.
The first section of the book deals with basic concerns, including epidemiology, anatomy, biology, the classification and pre-surgical evaluation of hernias, and local anesthesia. Then follow detailed accounts of the three main techniques used in this type of surgery: mesh, laparoscopic and open. In the third section the authors discuss post-operative follow-up, medical, social and legal complications and present some interesting findings based on their own personal experience. Surgeons and other medical specialists with an interest in the subject, such as endoscopists and andrologists, will appreciate this valuable source of up-to-date knowledge.
