Causing less post-operative pain, with faster recovery and better cosmesis, laparoscopic surgery has led to a new emphasis on patient-oriented surgical treatment. Yet the procedure is costly compared to conventional surgery and, although widely accepted for symptomatic cholelithiasis techniques have not been proven for groin hernia. This volume takes a critical look at the available facts concerning both conventional and laparoscopic hernia repair, allowing readers to make their own judgements regarding which technique is the most appropriate. Beginning with a historical overview and examination of the socio-economic implications, leading experts review the anatomy and pathophysiology of inguinal hernia, compare the diverse surgical techniques, and review the results of the most advanced conventional and laparoscopic procedures. A discussion of possible future implications completes the book.
