Abstract

The surgery of groin hernias can be considered in two stages: the handling of the hernial sac, which necessitates dissection, resection, and reduction, and the parietal reconstruction, which calls upon the existing anatomical structures. Prosthetic material may be required to bridge a defect when the dissection is completed and the structures identified to which a prosthesis might be anchored.
