Abstract

The onset of chronic inguinal pain has been increasing in recent years, but therapeutic options for these patients remain unclear. Different methods apart from conservative management have been described for dealing with this problem. These options include local revision of the scar and the inguinal nerves, with the next step being retroperitoneal triple neurectomy. Patients with an implanted mesh have the option to have the mesh material explanted, but this can sometimes be a rather difficult operation.
