Abstract

Prosthetic mesh is now used routinely in inguinal hernia repairs, although its fixation is thought to be a potential cause of chronic groin pain. The Parietene ProGrip (TYCO Healthcare) mesh, which is semi-resorbable and incorporates self-fixing properties, has been shown to provide satisfactory repair in open surgery. We describe the use of this mesh in TAPP hernia repair, which has not previously been reported in the literature. A prospective study of 29 patients showed a mean operative time to be 47.6 min, with 96% of patients discharged home on the day of surgery or the day after. Visual analog pain scales (out of 10) reduced from 4 preoperatively to 0 at 6 months, and only 1 patient suffered a minor wound complication. The use of this mesh in transabdominal preperitoneal hernia repair is therefore feasible, safe, and may reduce postoperative pain.
