Operations for Recurrent Inguinal Hernia
A number of experts with particular interest in the surgical technique of repairing an inguinal hernia have reported a very low postoperative recurrence rate. This is true of Glassow with respect to the Should-ice technique, Halverson and McVay and Rutledge for the Cooper’s ligament technique, and Nyhus for the preperitoneal approach. Depending on the thoroughness and duration of the followup study, the above authors have reported recurrence rates between 0.25% and 3% for the repair of the direct inguinal hernia.
