Background: Laparoscopic hernioplasty is a standard technique with increasing interest of patients and surgeons. Bilateral hernioplasty can be performed by laparoscopy as well. The aim of this study is to show laparoscopic bilateral hernioplasty is an acceptable method and use of eye-shaped mesh getting the best result.
Methods: In 54 cases with bilateral inguinal hernia, under general anesthesia laparos-copic reconstruction with eye-shaped prolene mesh performed. All cases of recurrent, big, direct, indirect and femoral hernia were entered in the study.
Results: Seven of 54 cases were female. Four cases (male) had direct hernia, four female had femoral hernia and remaining of the study group had indirect form. Direct hernia 4 case (male), femoral hernia 4 (female) and remaining were indirect hernia. Operation performed without any complications in all cases. In 12 cases sac of hernia was too much enlarged so technique of bridge at the base of sac used. In five cases diameter of defect was more than 2 centimeter. In three of them defect repaired by suture before mesh insertion. Postoperative complications were seroma at distal of mesh in 23 cases (absorbed during 3 weeks spontaneously), reaction to mesh in one case (mesh and protack removed after 3 months of operation. Conservative management was ineffective and anterior repair performed), recurrence in one case (after 2 months of operation due to displacement of mesh in big direct hernia). Post operative hospital stay was 1.3 day (mean time). Painless movement and mobilization was obvious after 48 hours.
Conclusion: Laparoscopic bilateral hernioplasty using eye-shaped prolene mesh is an acceptable method with good results especially in indirect hernia. In direct hernia, repair of defect by suturing and fixation of mesh is preferred.
