Schley’s inguinal hernia repair: a single unit’s experience of a forgotten technique
This study was done to assess the effectiveness of Schley’s inguinal hernia repair. It is a retrospective study analysing the outcome of patients who received the said technique over a period of 1 year at our institution. The minimum and the maximum follow-up periods were 2 and 3 years.
The patients who underwent the above technique in 2011 were reviewed retrospectively in December 2013 by going through the hospital records and examining the patients in person.
105 patients had undergone surgery in 2011. The majority of them had right-sided hernias and were in 40–59 age group. Two cases of wound infection, one case of haematocele and one hernia recurrence were noted. Operating on the recurrent hernia was straightforward.
Schley’s inguinal hernia repair is an effective technique with favourable outcome.
