Inguinal hernia repair by Bianchi incision in boys: a retrospective study

Inguinal hernia repair by Bianchi incision in boys: a retrospective study Objective Open inguinal hernia repair by Bianchi incision is a potential alternative technique for the treatment of IH. This study aims to retrospectively analyze boys with IH, who underwent open IH repair by Bianchi incision. Methods A total of 3300 boys (1–144 months) with IH from April 2007 to September 2015 were enrolled into this study. An open high scrotal incision (Bianchi incision) to ligate the processus proximal to the internal inguinal ring was performed in patients for IH repair. Then, all patients were followed up after 7 days, 1 month, and 1 year. Operation time, hernia recur- rence, hydrocele, testicular atrophy, cosmetic results, and the satisfaction of parents were evaluated. Results Among these 3300 boys, 1662 (50.36%) and 1349 (40.88%) boys with IH were operated on the right and left side, respectively, while 289 (8.76%) patients underwent bilateral surgery. The average operation time was 13.0 ± 2.3 min for unilateral cases and 25.2 ± 4.2 min for bilateral cases. Furthermore, among these 3300 boys, 309 boys (9.36%) were lost to follow-up, and the remaining 2991 boys underwent a total of 3245 IH repairs. The complications included 20 recurrences who were repaired with the same technique, one wound rupture, and one acquired undescended testis.

Abstract

Objective Open inguinal hernia repair by Bianchi incision is a potential alternative technique for the treatment of IH. This study aims to retrospectively analyze boys with IH, who underwent open IH repair by Bianchi incision. Methods A total of 3300 boys (1–144 months) with IH from April 2007 to September 2015 were enrolled into this study. An open high scrotal incision (Bianchi incision) to ligate the processus proximal to the internal inguinal ring was performed in patients for IH repair. Then, all patients were followed up after 7 days, 1 month, and 1 year. Operation time, hernia recur- rence, hydrocele, testicular atrophy, cosmetic results, and the satisfaction of parents were evaluated. Results Among these 3300 boys, 1662 (50.36%) and 1349 (40.88%) boys with IH were operated on the right and left side, respectively, while 289 (8.76%) patients underwent bilateral surgery. The average operation time was 13.0 ± 2.3 min for unilateral cases and 25.2 ± 4.2 min for bilateral cases. Furthermore, among these 3300 boys, 309 boys (9.36%) were lost to follow-up, and the remaining 2991 boys underwent a total of 3245 IH repairs. The complications included 20 recurrences who were repaired with the same technique, one wound rupture, and one acquired undescended testis. No
