Abstract

Abstract EVALUATION of the result of the primary repair of inguinal hernia is of paramount importance. Since this is one of the commonest conditions requiring surgical intervention in man, it plays an important part in the economic, social, and employable status of the person involved. Great strides have been made in the surgical approach to this problem since the original basic anatomical repairs and reports of both Bassini1 and Halsted.2 During the past 50 years, through the continued efforts and statistical evaluation of their results in large series of cases by many prominent groups and surgeons, this important problem has been presented many times. It is encouraging to note in the recent years the great improvement made in the technic and wider use of nonabsorbable suture for the repair of this congenital or acquired defect. Even though there exist today innumerable types of repairs which have their strong advocates, References 1. Summers, J. E.: Classical Herniorrhaphies of Bassini, Halsted and Ferguson , Am. J.
