Abstract

Acomparative, prospective study was carried out in surgical department of LGH to evaluate the efficacy of Dessardahernioplsty technique by comparing with Lichtenstein repair in terms of post operative pain, hospital stay, rate of early and late complications and recurrence. Total (n=60) cases were divided in two groups A and B. with mean age 41.5 and 43.5 years for dessarda and Lichtenstein groups respectively. Insignificant statistical difference was noted in both groups as for as severity of acute pain, post operative hospital stay and wound infections are concerned. Regarding chronic pain and recurrence rate, patients in group A (Dessarda) show statistically significant advantage over group B (Lichtenstein). It, therefore was concluded that Dessarda-hernioplasty technique is useful in our patients as no foreign material has to be inserted that makes it cost effective with advantage of less chronic pain and zero recurrence rate at the end of one year.
