Postoperative CRPS in Inguinal Hernia Patients
Chronic pain is a frequent result after surgical hernia repair and probably the most difficult complication to treat. Whereas we have several excellent options for handling a recurrence, therapy of chronic pain may be frustrating, at least in some patients, and causes a lot of trouble for the surgeon as well as for the patient. Almost the majority of patients report some kind of mild complaints following hernia repair, but some patients suffer considerably. Feeling that they cannot live with this pain, they look for any treatment to get rid of it, and they often undergo one surgical revision after another.
